The goods: we love peanut butter
Peanut butter is something that transcends age – grown-ups love it just as much as kids do. Maybe even more. Whether you like yours crunchy or smooth, there’s now a PB out there with your name on it. We’ve found some awesome new products to please nutty butter fans of all persuasions. Everything from a naturally higher fibre option and a (much) bigger jar to something slightly more left of field. Let’s check out the spread!
Mayver’s adds to range
Mayver’s has released two new peanut butters to its range of natural PBs. The brand’s Skin On natural peanut butter is made from whole peanuts and a dash of sea salt with the skins left on the nuts. This provides more fibre, along with a full-bodied roasted flavour.
Mayver’s Extra Crunchy has 60% more crunch, for crunchy PB fans. Slightly thicker than Mayver’s Super Tasty PB, it’s made from roasted peanuts, lightly crushed and blended with a dash of sea salt, but with extra big chunks of crunch.

Powdered peanut butter?
The #1 selling powdered peanut butter in the US is now available in Australia. PBfit is a natural peanut butter powder that has 87% less fat and a third of the calories of traditional PB. Each serve contains 8 grams of protein and only 7 calories. It’s also gluten-free, dairy-free and soy-free. Plus, it’s made from only three ingredients: gently pressed roasted peanuts, coconut palm sugar and a pinch of salt. You can add it to smoothies or shakes or use it in bread or pancake mixes. And when you’re looking for that creamy nut butter texture, you can just add water and mix.

Bigger is better with Bega
The natural peanut butter segment has grown significantly in popularity. In the last year alone, sales of Bega’s natural PB range have grown by 85%. To respond to the increased demand, Bega Simply Nuts has released the ultimate peanut butter jar. Bega Simply Nuts is now available in a 650g jar – double the size of the existing Bega Simply Nuts 325g range.
Bega Simply Nuts natural peanut butter is made from locally grown hi oleic peanuts, and this means that the peanuts used in Bega Simply Nuts natural PB are higher in “good” monounsaturated fats compared to regular peanuts.
You can find Bega’s new products at Woolworths nationally.
