Nuts ‘N More was founded by fitness and nutrition experts who were looking for fortified, high protein butters and other healthy sources of protein for themselves and their clients. All natural butters can be chunky and hard to spread. Nuts-’N-More created a unique recipe for our fortified butters, and a natural process that simply involves crushing the nuts and blending the ingredients in a way that achieves the finest texture of all natural butters.

The result is the products being brought to market now – spreadable and incredibly delicious, all-natural, high protein peanut butters and almond butters that have 14 grams per serving, without any extra calories or fat. Simple and all natural! Nuts ’N More quickly expanded from fortified, high protein peanut butters and almond butters to other varieties such as Cinnamon Almond Raisin – all of which are all natural and fortified with whey protein and flaxseed. …Nuts ‘N More, the original high protein peanut butters and almond butters!

Check them out on Shark Tank:

So far I have tried the Chocolate Peanut Butter, the Chocolate Almond Butter and the Cinnamon Raisin Almond Butter.

I’m not sure how I like it. It’s really grainy! I think it’s the Xylitol! Not crazy about the first 2 flavors. However; the Cinnamon Raisin is good and loaded with Raisins! If you like Cinnamon Raisin, you will like it! It does have 14g of protein per 2tbsp that’s double normal Peanut Butter and Almond Butter. It also has superfood: Flax Seed which is high in Omegas! With all the positives, a little grainy can be overlooked!

However; I will personally stay away from the Chocolate nuts butters! If I have Chocolate Nutbutter, I want it to be freakin delicious! So far the Cinnamon Raisin is a winner! Stay tuned for the other flavors.

What I am super disappointed about, is I don’t have the Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter! I bet that’s the best of them all! Yes; you have the grainy Chocolate Almond Butter, but I bet the awesomeness of the Coconut, offsets it and makes it delicious! I wish I had a jar!!!!!

But I do have the rest, so stay tuned!

Stay tuned for the rest!

**Update** May 28th 2014
Ok first let me start by saying I’m not a fan of Caramel or Toffee! I don’t like anything that gets stuck in my teeth! That being said, I like the flavor of Toffee, but not Toffee. I wasn’t looking forward to the Toffee Peanut Butter, but I have to say it is the absolute best so far!! A tad bit better than the Cinnamon Raisin! They still have the grainy xylitol texture! I would like them to cut the amount they put in! You guys really don’t need that much! The flavors rock and don’t need the extra xylitol! I would try cutting it in thirds and then in half and see how much you really need! I bet it’s a lot less than what you are using and it will save on food cost!

**Update** June 4th 2014
I just had the plain Peanut Butter and I have to say its one of the best! The xylitol content is less as it should be and it’s still a little grainy, but not like the first 2 flavors!

**Update** June 22th 2014
I had the plain Almond Butter and it was evenly as good as the Peanut Butter the same comments as above.

I like the cinnamon raisin the best with the exception of the higher xylitol content. If they lower it and tweak the recipe just a little they will be one of the best companies around!

Had the bare today, it’s just ground almonds. That I wouldn’t waste my money on. You can easily make your own in a blender or food processor.

What I would buy is the creations like the coconut oil, flax seed and honey flavors! This review is mainly about the Cocoa + Coconut!

Stay tuned!!

**Update** March 2nd 2014
I had the Cocoa + Coconut and it was super super smooth! If you like skippy natural no stir Peanut Butter, this is your Almond Butter of choice. It’s almost exactly the same consistency, except it has almond butter taste and chocolate. A little subtle hint of coconut butter, but barely detectable.

If a smooth Skippy like nut butter is your preference Barney Butter is for you. If you like a smooth peanut butter with tiny bits of other nuts kind of between smooth and chunky and layered flavors like a gourmet meal then YoufreshNaturals is the way to go. If you are looking for more a coconut butter than Sweet Spreads is your best option.

Again; I am subjecting myself to something else I don’t want to do! For my readers!!

I hate the taste of coffee! But I’m about to try the Barney Butter Vanilla Bean + Espresso.
Honestly I didn’t taste it. However; I knew it was in there because it had a sandy grit to it when chewed. That was the ground espresso beans.

Idk I kinda like it! I like the gritty crunch it’s something different! I wonder if I am going to get a caffeine kick? I took it purposely at night to see. If I can’t sleep then I am getting a caffeine kick! It says 5mg of caffeine per serving and I had 2 servings. 5 mg is really nothing. Monster has 140+ mg

They should have added a superfine ground Espresso. They didn’t grind it enough.

Barney Butter can be found at BJ’s wholesale club! I saw it there on Sunday!

Ok first off! I know you are going to go to her website: please do not hold her Atrocious (with a capital A) website against her!

Sweet Mama Mel,
I know you will read this: you have to do something about that immediately!! It’s priority one!! You need pictures and descriptions and a true store setup where people can click and buy it now! Seriously, it’s very bad! Like do this tomorrow!

Her Instagram is beautiful and shows the products much better: sweetspreads

With that out of the way!

I have a 6 cute mini jar sample pack, (I can already hear you girls awe these are adorable hehe) and let me tell you they taste amazing! It’s not almond or pecan butter with a little coconut butter mixed in. It’s coconut butter with a little nuts and flavors mixed in.

20140221-214105.jpg
I tried eating coconut butter/coconut oil plain with a spoon to get my healthy fats in and I just couldn’t!! Yuk!

Well; the Chocolate Brownie didn’t stand a chance! It’s gone!

It had (past tense lol) a rich Chocolate & Coconut taste! Ps I licked the jar 😱 and lid! 😱

What’s the cool hidden perk? They are in cute reusable mason jars! Just wash and reuse and every time you do it will remind you to order more sweet spreads!

Last night was cold from transit tonight it’s nice and creamy this is the chocolate mint

Check out the recipe: Ultimate Nut-Butter Protein Balls for my practical application of Sweet Spreads!

Btw, I enjoyed all flavors. The Vanilla Chocolate didn’t taste like anything except coconut, so I would consider that as plain. In case you have an application for plain. I still enjoyed it!

All flavors are nice and creamy! Very easy to mix in any recipe or just eat with a spoon! 😱

What most people don’t know; is you need fat to burn fat! But it has to be healthy fat! Drain the animal fats when cooking and replace with healthy fats such as coconut oil and nuts! Here you have both! Eat it by the spoonful or the mini jarful! 😉

This review is about: Cinnamon Roll

I was a little skeptical as most flavored nut butters are overdone and really fake tasting!

This has a strong Natural Almond Butter flavor with a pleasant aftertaste of coconut and cinnamon. I love the taste!

It’s super creamy and thin with a few occasional chunks of pecans in it! (Will squeeze out of a nutbutter and jelly sandwich! But it’s amazing to top ice cream or iced yogurt with! Also great to mix with Greek yogurt!

I really enjoyed it! However; the only drawback I see is: the size is really small! And at 11.99 a bottle it’s a little too expensive for me; I can down a whole bottle in a sitting. Trader Joe’s plain almond butter is $6.99 for 16oz if this was $8.99 for 12oz it wouldn’t be that bad because it’s a specialty, but I think at $11.99 plus shipping it is pricing itself out of many peoples weekly shopping list.

If they could get in Amazon or Wholefoods then shipping costs could be offset.

I really like the product! And wish it all the success! And I will be buying it as a special indulgence. Next I want to try cookie dough! I am afraid I will eat the entire cookie dough bottle in one shot!

Try it youfresh naturals will like it!
