Justin’s Nut Butters

Posted on

squeezable peanut butter

All natural and USDA certified organic, Justin’s Nut Butters are made with high quality ingredients to produce a high quality product. In fact, the company’s stated goal is to “create the best peanut and nut butters in the world.”

Now, determining “the best” peanut butter is not something that one person can do, but after trying a variety of the butters, I can definitely say that they are excellent. I tasted six flavors: Classic Peanut Butter, Cinnamon Peanut Butter, Honey Peanut Butter, Classic Almond Butter, Maple Almond Butter and Honey Almond Butter. The quality is obvious as each and every flavor tastes true to its nut – by which I mean that the peanut butter tastes like peanut butter, not like a peanut butter cookie that has sugar, etc. added to it. Honey Peanut Butter was my favorite, followed by Maple Almond, but I liked all six. Pumpkin lovers (like me) should take note that the company also offers a season Pumpkin Pie Peanut Butter that is probably worth checking out when fall rolls around.

Justin’s packages their nut butters in 16-oz. jars, but I was able to try Justin’s Jrs, which are a relatively new addition to the company’s lineup. The Jrs are individually-portioned squeeze packs of peanut butter. They are lightweight, don’t need to be refrigerated and can be tucked into any pocket, purse or lunch bag for a quick snack or a boost of protein. When you’re ready to eat, just tear open the pack and you’ll be able to squeeze the nut butter right onto a sandwich, some sliced fruit or even straight into your mouth. Because they don’t require refrigeration, the nut butters are slightly less solid than the standard jarred type of nut butter. This means that you can get even more creative with your serving ideas and can squeeze it on top of ice cream, add it a milkshake or try swirling a pack or two on top of a batch of brownies before baking.

    What? Who refrigerates peanut butter? That’s just plain weird…

    Most peanut butter contains hydrogenated fat to keep the peanut oil from separating and floating to the top of the container. Hydrogenated fat is crisco type fat, as in “spread some crisco on your PBJ sandwich.” Yuck. Natural peanut butter separates, so you mix it and keep it in the refrigerator. Tastes better and healthier for you.

    There is no hydrogenated fat in this peanut butter. The reason that it doesn’t need to be refrigerated is because the serving size is so small. Just squeeze the packed and, if there is any separation, it mixes right together.

    No worries here, ComfortablyNumb!

    Most commercial peanut butter states on the label that it should be refrigerated after opening. It’s probably an unnecessary precaution, to protect the company from liability. I suppose any food could become a breeding ground for bacteria at room temperature, but many people keep peanut butter in the pantry and I’ve never heard of it causing illness. It certainly spreads better that way.

    I forgot to mention, since it’s only one serving per packet (in the JR size, I’m sure the larger jars should be refrigerated), there is nothing that needs storage after opening.
