Futters Butters!

I’m experimenting once more with a variety of nut butters. Having much more success this go-around than I did back when my older son was a baby and I was being “safe” by abstaining from peanut products while nursing him; I must have gotten a brand that didn’t suit me or something, because it left a bad taste in my mouth (figuratively, literally, etc.) and I never went back.

This time around, though, I am loving my almond butter. Maranatha brand, for the win!

I do wish, though, that I had a greater variety of butters available to me locally. I don’t often order foods online without being completely convinced, without any doubt, that I’m going to love what I get, and since I had that bad experience, I’m a bit wary; I’d much rather get a small jar to sample, then move on to larger amounts, but that’s not as cost-effective when it comes to mail order. Enthusiastic endorsements from other folks – real people, not paid ads – go a long way toward making me feel more confident.

“Free” also works wonders. 😉

Clare, then, is speaking my language! Maybe she’s speaking yours, too? She’s hosting a giveaway for a nut butter company that’s…well, hey! Looks like I could actually get their products in person without driving too far! Maybe if I win, and the sample hooks me, I’ll be making a few extra car trips a month…

Anyway, go comment, but if you click through to there from here and you win, I want to hear your opinion, too!

I saw the new Nature Valley Nut Clusters at the grocery store today, and I thought they’d perhaps be good on oatmeal. Bought them, brought them home, and my older son found them and wanted to try them immediately.

He liked doing this quite a bit, though I think he got a bit mixed up about the difference between a review and a commercial. 😉 He’d love to do it again, so I may try to get his opinion – Live! From our kitchen! – on any new products or recipes on which he cares to give his opinion.
