Justin's Nut Butter {#GreenChristmas Grand Prize Sponsor Review}


Justin's Nut Butter makes the most amazing organic and natural nut butters, peanut butter cups and candy bars. Deliciously irresistible and completely junk-free, I hope you stumble upon Justin's in the near future! This company is committed to using only the highest quality natural and organic ingredients possible and that are sustainably harvested and as local as possible. With the planet in mind, Justin's makes sure their business practices are top notch, just like their final products.
With eight different flavors of peanut, almond and hazelnut butters, there's something for everyone! I received two jars of nuts butters, and three 10-pack squeeze packs in three flavors -- Honey Peanut Butter, Maple Almond Butter and Chocolate Hazelnut Butter.

Let's just say I've found a new favorite line of nut butters. I'm totally hooked!! The Honey Peanut Butter is reminiscent of the sweet conventional nut butters my husband still loves (yuck...), so he actually like this one too. It's not overly sweet but just enough to bring out the rich peanut flavor and perfect to each alone. The Maple Almond Butter is quite rich like most almond butters, but the maple is the perfect addition to tone it down just a little. The Chocolate Hazelnut Butter is my absolute favorite. I'm SO sad it wasn't available in the jar size when my review package shipped. Must. Find. More. You know that chocolate hazelnut spread that everyone likes? It's crap. It's not really as natural as you thought. This, however, is similar in taste, if not better, and better for you too! Definitely loving each flavor and each one tasted fresh and simply delicious!

Justin's nut butters are gluten-free, dairy-free, certified kosher, GMO-free, and some are also vegan. Apparently Justin's uses a proprietary grinding process to create their nut butters, as well as making them in small batches. The texture is quite unique so that totally makes sense. They aren't silky smooth but they also aren't considered to be chunky. I'd call them "slightly gritty" with really gives them a natural nut butter taste and consistency.

Justin's doesn't use hydrogenated oils like in most conventional nut butters. Instead, they use organic palm fruit oil which reduces oil separation, is trans fat free and is sustainably harvested from an organic farm in Brazil. It's nice to be able to open a jar of Justin's without having to stir and stir before diving in to enjoy.
The squeeze packs...oh the squeeze packs!! I love being able to take Justin's with me on the go in such a convenient little 1.15 ounce package. Each caddy contains 10 of these little babies and boy do they go fast in my house. They're great for portion control, especially with the delicious Chocolate Hazelnut Butter that I can eat by the spoonful, and also packed in lunches, on hikes or car trips, or any time I need a pick me up while out of the house. I know you want some! You can thank me later.

I recently joked that I'm probably 40% peanut butter by now! I think it's time to try a new butter and these look great!
