Last week I was thrilled to receive three tubs of heavenly 100% NUTZ peanut butter
and got to do a 100% Nutz Peanut Butter review:
· 100% natural peanut butter
· 100% natural peanut butter with sea salt
· 100% dark chocolate peanut spread
What we thought: 100% Nutz peanut butter review
100% NUTZ peanut butter is made right here in New Zealand using GMO-free hi-oleic peanuts, which apparently have a fatty acid composition similar to olive oil. That makes it healthy to eat and incredibly shelf stable.
All three 100% NUTZ peanut butters are delicious and have a surprisingly short ingredients list.
The original spread – 100% Nutz peanut butter – is literally just peanuts, nothing else. And the funny thing is I think it’s my favourite of the lot. In any case, I’ve been devouring it on crackers like it’s nobody’s business.
100% natural peanut butter with sea salt only contains what the name suggests – peanuts and sea salt.
The nuts are roasted a little longer in this one, which gives the peanut butter a stronger flavour and darker colour.
I also enjoyed this spread on crackers, but it really shone in the recommended satay dip recipe I made by mixing four teaspoons of peanut butter with a cup of natural yoghurt, a teaspoon of sweet chilli sauce and a teaspoon of curry powder.
What a heavenly accompaniment to vegetable sticks! We made and devoured two bowls of satay dip over the past week.
100% dark chocolate peanut spread is a healthier chocolate spread choice. It’s made with dark Donovan chocolate and peanuts, so it has way less sugar than other brands and no added salt.
I’ll be honest, we’ve mostly been spooning it straight from the tub to our mouths. However, you can also make simple truffles with it by rolling balls of it in chopped nuts or desiccated coconut.
Now I’m hoping the crew at 100% NUTZ
will start playing around with other nuts. If they can make the simple peanut taste so good, I would love to see what they came up with if they got their hands on almonds or cashews.
