Giveaway/Product Review: MaraNatha Peanut Butter

One Goodies for Mom reader will win a Maranatha Nut Butter Sampler Pack (retail value=$25), courtesy of Maranatha® Nut Butters.

With Earth Day approaching, we are featuring organic and natural products over the next few weeks. Maranatha offers organic and natural nut/seed butters. Each is finely ground in small batches. They contains no trans fats, hydrogenated oils or preservatives.

We tried a jar of the natural peanut butter and it very good. You won't want to go back to those other brands once you've tried this one. You can definitely tell it is freshly ground. It is amazing that this good-tasting PB is actually low in sugar. They also offer no salt version for those watching their sodium intake. We tried the creamy version, which still has a slight crunch to it but it doesn't have the flavor smashed out of it like many smooth version do. My favorite way to eat it is on graham crackers. Yum!!

Just a quick note, which I didn't realize and left my first jar out :( It's generally best to refrigerate their nut butters. This is because they do not contain any preservatives or stabilizers.

Now if I can just find a healthy, yummy tasting, low-sugar jelly to go with this natural PB favorite.

About Maranatha® Nut Butters
Maranatha® Nut Butters was founded in 1982, by the husband and wife team of Robert and Chris Plotnik. As one of the first natural food distributors in America, the Plotniks started delivering dried fruit from the California Central Valley to small natural food stores in Oregon and Washington. Today, Maranatha is one of the nation's leading makers of organic and natural nut butters, growing about 20% to 30% annually over the last three years.

My favorite way to eat peanut butter is in a peanut butter and nutella sandwich. You toast the bread, spread chunky peanut butter on one side, nutella on the other. Tastes like a melted reeses sandwich!
