For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE and TODDLERS 7 months+*
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again (ok, at this point I’m sure I’ve probably said a few more times than that), there are so many different nut butters on the market, it really takes a lot to make one stand out from the other. From unique flavors to unusual packaging, the only way you – as a producer – are going to survive in this nut butter filled world is to differentiate yourself in such a profound way, that people really take notice.
And that is exactly what YumbutterGo has set out to do. Making superfood-filled nut (and seed) butters in super convenient on-the-go squeeze-tube packaging, this company has even taken their mission one step further by partnering with BuyOne FeedOne** to help feed hungry children in need.
THE PRODUCT: Yumbutters are more than just your typical nut butters. They are jars (or pouches) of peanut, almond, and/or sunflower butters filled with other superfood goodness, all of which help feed hungry children abroad as well.
Founded by Adrian and Matt, two guys who followed very different journeys but bonded over their common desire for wholesome food and world-changing business ideas, and of course their love of nut butters, they set out to achieve their dreams of running the world’s most responsible food company.
Both men knew that nut butters were some of the world’s most perfect foods, packed with protein, healthy fats, and a wide range of micronutrients, but most commercial brands were filled with lots of unnecessary and frankly, unhealthy, ingredients, they decided to conjure up their own. By using a base of nutritious nuts and seeds, and then adding in other nutrient-dense ingredients to boost the health-factor, Yumbutters were officially born.
Adrian and Matt new Yumbutters were delicious, but they wanted something that not only tasted great, but was also super portable. That’s why they came up with YumbutterGO.
Launching on Kickstarter, backers bought over 1000 pouches in 30 days, loving the fact that YumbutterGo is the only: Organic GO-Anywhere™ peanut butter and superfood integrated nut butter. Consumers also love that they are part of the BuyOne FeedOne Program.** Add to that the fact that refrigeration is not necessary, and those who want something healthy and satisfying, but are always on-the-go, couldn’t be more excited about these products!
Available in 3 delicious flavors, including Superfood Organic Sunflower Yumbuttergo, Superfood Almond Yumbuttergo, and Superfood Organic Peanut Yumbuttergo, these nut butters have taken your typical spreads to a whole other level!
**Every time you buy one jar or pouch of Yumbutter, you help feed a child with malnutrition. Partnering with a non-profit in Guatemala to provide holistic care to malnourished children and their mothers, they start with pre-natal supplementation and education on nutrition and sanitation and continue on until the child reaches age two with nutrition supplementation, parasite de-worming medicine, and more education for the mother regarding breastfeeding and complementary feeding.
NUTRITION-WISE: Made with many Organic ingredients, YumbutterGo products are made in tiny batches, ensuring that all their final products are as fresh as possible. Full of protein, heart-healthy fats, and a wide-ranging list of micronutrients, you will find everything from chia and hemp seeds, to goji powder and lucuma (as well as either peanuts, almonds, and/or sunflowers) in their three tasty flavors.
Coming in at 180 calories, 120-140 of which are from healthy fats, you will also find around 2-4 grams of fiber, 6-7 grams of protein and 3-4 grams of sugar per 2 Tb. serving.
*Nut and seed butters are a simple way to not only get your little one to get a nutritious helping of protein and healthy fats, but to help them enjoy a number of various foods as well – just spread them on top of fruits, vegetables, veggie burgers, etc. Plus, the idea that you should not expose your littles to peanuts and other nuts while they are still so young, has changed and it is actually advised now, as waiting to expose children to possible allergens can actually do more harm than good.
However, please consult with your physician if you have a history of peanut or other nut allergies in your family, as every child is different.
WHERE TO BUY: YumbutterGo products can be purchased directly through their website, or to find the retail location nearest you, please visit their Store Locator.
FINAL THOUGHTS: Finding snacks that are not only convenient, but also healthy, seem like a constant affair in the life of a Mom. Especially when trying to change it up from your typical, everyday choices.
That’s why the idea of YumbutterGo is so enticing. Not only does it change up your typical nut butters by adding superfoods, their also in a portable squeeze-package that can be easily put in your purse, diaper bag, gym bag, or whatever else it is that you like to tote around with you. And unlike other single-serving to-go nut butter packages, these are re-sealable and contain multiple servings so you can feed you, your little, and even their friends if need be.
With all that said, the fact that they are in a “squeeze” package makes it kind-of hard, especially on your initial opening, to get them mixed enough so you aren’t eating oil. I kneaded the various packages for quite some time before actually opening them, to avoid any over-run of oil, but it still seemed to pour out regardless. This also means that once you get to the bottom of the package that the nut butters will undoubtedly be so tough (thanks to their lack of oil), that you won’t be able to get them out at all. But, if you’re looking for this type of on-the-go packaging, I don’t see anyway around this issue.
Fresh tasting, and full of healthy ingredients, [if you’re aware of the kneading factor before you try to open them], you should definitely give YumbutterGo’ a try and see for yourself how delicious and convenient these portable nut butters can be.
