The Peanut Butter Lover ♥'s Nut Butter Nation

Wednesday, June 03, 2015

If I had to define what being an adult is, I'd say it's having to check your email more than once a year. At my age, most of the emails I get revolve around college, family, test scores and a lot of clothing websites that I accidentally subscribed to when I was 15. But sometimes, you get a really fun email. And that's where this story begins.

At the beginning of May, I got the following email:

Hi Katherine!

My name is Grant Ellis, and I am the Chief Grinder of a peanut/almond butter company I recently started called Nut Butter Nation. I recently ran across your blog, love it, and wanted to see if I could send you some samples of our newest flavors: honey vanilla and brown sugar cinnamon.

As a PB expert, I'd love for you to try it and tell me what you think. If that's cool, tell me where I can send it and I'll get it to you. I hope you had a good weekend and keep up the great work.

First and foremost, I'm pretty sure that being "Cheif Grinder" of a nut butter company is my dream job title. Secondly, if you would even consider turning down the opportunity to taste test free nut butter, please exit this page immediately. This blog isn't for you. Call it artistic differences. 

Anyways, let's talk peanut butter. I've made my own peanut butter before, and I promise you, homemade peanut butter is 100x better than store bought. (If that's even possible.) Nut Butter Nation is homemade peanut butter that you can buy at the store. Basically, it beat the system. Needless to say, after a few emails, a package from Nut Butter Nation came in the mail. Getting mail that isn't junk mail or college mail is hella exciting. Getting peanut butter in the mail is basically a dream come true.

I'm one of those people who gets annoyingly excited in the peanut butter section of the grocery store, so I obviously loved both flavors I tried. Flavored peanut butter seems to be everywhere nowadays, and I haven't really jumped on the bandwagon, but these nut butters were enough to convince me. Some of these flavored peanut butters have really weird ingredients, but Nut Butter Nation uses only a few organic ingredients aka no funky things are going into you body :-)

Still not convinced that the peanut butter bandwagon is for you?

Peanut butter is a good source of protein, heart friendly, full of potassium, fiber rich, an energy booster, a healthy fat and good on basically anything. So, if you were looking for a sign that you should go have a spoonful of peanut butter, this is it.
