Happy Friday friends! As an entrepeneur and small business owner myself, I love supporting local businesses. Through social media, I recently came across Abby’s Better Nut Butter based in Charlotte, North Carolina.
A little bit about the company….
A self-described foodie from Mooresville, North Carolina, Abby Kircher started working on an all-natural nut butter in the summer of 2015 as an alternative to some of the artificial peanut butters on the market. She was only 15 years old at the time!
For her, it all started with some nuts and a food processor. That experimenting led to five nut butter flavors: Date Pecan, Coconut Cashew, Strawberry Cashew, Honey Almond and Coffee Almond. None of Abby’s Better Nut Butter have more than 5 ingredients or contain any artificial sweeteners.
Abby was generous to send me the Date Pecan and Strawberry Cashew to try and review! Let’s get to tasting!
This one is perfect in it’s simplicity with only a few ingredients. They actually come together in the most magical, flavorful way to create a nut butter unlike any I’d tried before. The freeze dried strawberries do not overpower the flavor of this luscious cashew butter at all. It actually gives it a nice, light, sweet taste. Best described as pure bliss in a jar!
Ingredients: Dry Roasted Cashews, Freeze-Dried Strawberries, Organic Coconut Oil, Vanilla Extract, Himalyan Sea Salt.
This flavor was was a nostalgic reminder of a freshly baked Pecan Pie on Thanksgiving Day! The flavor is incredible and with such a short ingredient list too! If you love pecans like I do, you must give this a try. It is truly luscious!
Ingredients: Dry Roasted Pecans, Dates, Pink Himalyan Sea Salt.
