Kettle Foods Cashew Butter

Author: Healthnuttxo

Did that say, Cashew Butter? Because it really should have said Cashew Better (I have lame jokes, but oh well.  😛 )

Seriously. I have had my share of bad nut butters in the past. In fact, I remember buying a cashew butter a few years ago. I went to the store with my mom, and I remember being SO excited when I spotted some cashew butter. Obviously, peanut butter has my heart, but my favorite 2 nuts are pecans and cashews (hey- how come they don’t have pecan butter??). So, I came home with the jar, took a big spoonful of it, and YUCK. It was horrible! Pasty, no flavor, and just wrong wrong wrong.

But then- Kettle Foods sent me a jar of their Cashew Butter. I was skeptical, hesistant even. Would this taste the same? I dipped my knife in after stirring it up a bit, and…

YUMMY! It was so creamy and really tasted like someone took fresh, buttery cashews and grounded them up into this nut butter. It tasted like it had salt-but there was NON added!! Honestly, you don’t miss it a bit! It has a sweet aftertaste to it as well.  I was perfectly content with the combination of spoon + jar +Lisa’s mouth= one happy camper!

Overall, this nut butter is really excellent. It gets 4 1/2 stars in my book. Honestly, if you can’t have peanut butter for whatever reason , and are looking for alternatives, look no further than Kettle Food’s Cashew Butter!

1 oz (about 2 Tbs) is 160 calories, 14 grams of fat, 8 grams of carbohydrates, 1 gram of fiber, and 5 grams of protein.

Cashews, Sunflower and/or Safflower oil. (I always love the foods that taste awesome with the short ingredient list- connection, perhaps? 🙂 )

    thanks so much!

  • […] Overally, this spread gets 4 stars. It certainly was unique and not quite like anything I have had before, but delicious and refreshing. However, I prefer my nut butters to have a little more thickness to them, (so it’s easier to eat straight from the jar of course!) and one serving provides only 4 grams of protein as compared to other nut butters that are a bit higher. But, if you like hazelnuts, I highly reccomend this nut butter! I also did a review of Kettle Brand’s cashew butter, which you can see here. […]

    I’ve heard that Cashew Butter tastes like Cookie Dough. I’m skeptical…

    I just tried Kettle Brand cashew butter for the first time, and it’s wonderful!
    It’s nice and creamy, and just the right amount of sweetness. I may never eat peanut butter again! 🙂
