Happy Friday friends! Who else is nutty about nut butter? I’ve always been very vocal about my love of all things nut butter! This week I’m sharing my review for Blind Spot Nut Butters.
Being a small business owner, I definitely have a soft spot for supporting local companies. When I found out Blind Spot Nut Butters was based in York, PA; I knew I had to connect with Sheri Karan, the owner and founder.
Who is Blind Spot Nut Butters?
The story behind the name is very unique.
In 2012, Sheri’s husband, Troy, was diagnosed with Stargardt’s Disease, a degenerative retinal condition. He has lost most of his central vision in one eye and has several blind spots in his better eye. In 2013, it reduced his vision to the point that he was no longer able to work. Her husband prompted her to start making and selling a blend of nuts that she made for their family, which is now their Squirrelly Tail blend. She was hesitant to start a food manufacturing company, but he persisted and Blind Spot Nut Butters was born. She purposely used Blind Spot in the name of the company because she wanted to not only support their family but also give back to the visually challenged community.
Look at all of these fun flavors!
All of their nut butters are made in small batches, creating peanut and nut butter blends with a unique texture and crunch. This flavor is no exception! Cinnamon Roll found a new home on my morning bowl of oatmeal! This flavor is a blend of cashews, almonds and peanuts with spices that truly taste just like a cinnamon roll.
It’s A Zoo
When I was online selecting my flavors, this catchy name definitely caught my eye! It’s a Zoo is a fun blend of animal crackers, chocolate chips and bananas mixed into a sweet peanut and cashew butter. I loved the uniqueness of this nut butter! The texture of the nut butter is definitely thicker than a traditional peanut butter but still very spreadable. It’s great on anything and everything or just by the spoonful!
Sea Salt Peanut Butter
Here is a classic combination! The Sea Salt is freshly ground peanut butter flavored with a dark brown sugar and coarse sea salt sprinkled throughout. For those following a specific nutrition plan, this flavor is vegan, non-gmo and gluten free. Rice cakes, homemade strawberry jam and nut butter- heaven right there!
TLC Dessert Spreads
Do not pass up on trying these! TLC stands for “The Latest Creation.” I had a tough time deciding which flavor to go with. They have 4 to choose from: Wafflecone Sundae, Chocolate Cookie Swirl, S’Mores and Butterscotch Crunch. I purchased the S’Mores and Butterscotch and was not disappointed with either one!
The S’mores dessert spread is loaded with mini marshmallows, bits of graham crackers and chocolate all mixed in to the peanut butter! This went perfect on top of my greek yogurt bowl. My biggest problem was trying to stop myself from eating the whole jar! Hands down, this was my favorite!
The Butterscotch is also AMAZING! I could not keep my spoon out of this jar! This flavor has bits of toffee and butterscotch chips throughout! I decided to make a Soft Chewy Oatmeal Cookies with this blend. These cookies are a perfect treat on their own or with your morning coffee!
