Putting an unexpected spin on the classic PB&J are new, nontraditional nut butters and spreads. Georgia Grinders Premium Nut Butters, Atlanta, is launching pecan butter, hand-crafted in small batches using locally grown pecans and a touch of sea salt. The company, which also manufactures almond, cashew and peanut butter, describes the new product as “an ode to Georgia.”
Crazy Go Nuts, Fowler, Calif., offers a line of walnut butter in sweet varieties, including banana, oatmeal cookie and chocolate espresso, as well as savory options, such as garlic Parmesan, sage rosemary and buffalo.
A new offering from Annie’s, Pea B&J Pockets soft crustless sandwiches, pair strawberry or grape jelly with golden pea butter, a school-safe substitute for peanut butter.
