My little ones absolutely LOVE Peanut Butter. Really, they would eat it all the time if I allowed it. While Peanut Butter is a favorite while we're spending time at home, sometimes we eat lunch on the go. I am always super-conscious of the fact that while my kids don't have any allergies, other kids DO, and this can often lead to very scary, potentially life-threatening situations. When we will be eating around others, especially children, I make it a point to NOT pack peanut butter. I take this very seriously as a parent, and I try and make sure that I never accidentally put anyone else's child in a life-threatening situation.
Justin's products are made from organic, non-GMO ingredients, and are loaded with protein and nutty deliciousness. I love the fact that these products don't contain artificial dyes or flavors, and are preservative-free. That's right, folks. When choosing Justin's Nut Butters, you are tasting only the best that Mother Nature has to offer, without any added junk.
***Please note: While the Almond Butters DO NOT contain ANY peanut products, and very strict sanitation is adhered to between batches, it does say on the jar that it may contain trace amounts of peanuts. This is ONLY because these butters are processed in a plant that also handles peanuts. If your child is allergic, please consult your physician if you have any concerns.***
We received a nice assortment of Justin's snacks to check out for ourselves. This included snack-sized, super-portable nut butters, Nut Butters with Pretzel Sticks, and even some delicious Peanut Butter Cups! (Obviously, the latter have peanuts in them, so we enjoy them at home.)
My kids are absolutely in love with these creative, flavorful snacks from Justin's. They love the nut butters with pretzels, and we take them with us on trips to the park, and even pack them in picnics! These convenient, snack-sized servings give my kiddos a nice, wholesome treat, with the protein they need to keep up with a busy summer schedule.
Of course the Peanut Butter Cups became a fast favorite in our home. These come in both milk chocolate and white chocolate varieties, and are a wonderful way to satisfy any sweets cravings that may arise. My favorite would have to be the white chocolate variety, while the kiddos prefer classic milk chocolate.
We received a full-sized jar of Justin's Almond Butter, in the rich Vanilla flavor. At first, the kids thought it was weird. After all, Almonds have a different texture and consistency than peanuts. The flavor is definitely different, too. But, once I made them some simple Almond Butter Sandwiches, they quickly changed their tune and gave these products a thumbs up.
I tried these nut butters, too. I have to say, I like them a lot! Now while these are flavored, they are not sickeningly sweet, and the honey or maple flavoring does not overpower the amazing Almond flavor. The Almonds are definitely the star of the show here!
My kids love their Justin's Almond Butter in sandwiches, smeared on celery sticks, or even paired with fresh apple slices. Basically, anywhere you'd use peanut butter, you can use Justin's Almond Butters.
If you're not too keen on the idea of Almond Butter, that's okay! Justin's also carried peanut butters, and even delicious Peanut Butter Cups. (Obviously, these DO contain peanut products.)
Overall, we're definitely loving our Justin's Nut Butters experience. The products we were able to locate were fresh, delicious, and definitely a great, kid-pleasing alternative to peanut butter. I love the fact that I can serve this without any Mommy Guilt, since they're made from only the highest quality, organic and natural ingredients.
