Food Find: Sunbutter Sunflower Spread

Awhile back I had picked up some packets of Sunbutter sunflower spread from Packitgourmet but had forgotten about them. On yesterday’s hike I noticed one in my food bag and thought about it:

I had a cinnamon raisin bagel in my pack as well and the thought of it for lunch sounded good. A quick cutting of the bagel in half and slathering the butter on:

Surprisingly mellow tasting. Without the cloying thickness of almond or cashew butter, it tasted light on the tongue. A hint of sweetness and not salty. I’d carry this any day from now on instead of the other nut butters. A bonus goes to that it mixes up easily in the pouch. Being clear plastic you can see your progress and even in low 30°’s it mixed up quickly. Often with natural nut butters in packets you get an oily mix at first, then thick chunks of butter and you can’t get it smoothly mixed up in the packet.

Try this one out if you see it!

  1. Hi, Sarah,
    I found your blog while looking for SunButter recipes. I loved reading about your taste test. As a SunButter blogger, I’m happy the packet kept however long it was in your stash! As a fellow hiker, I’m eager to keep reading your great posts.

  2. I prefer Sunbutter, over the other nut butters every time!
    I suggest Agave Nectar, for when you crave more sweet goodness.

We'd love to hear your thoughts!
