I recently wanted to try Soybutter, but the sample request I made was with 50,000 other people. So they didn't send the sample out due to cost. I actually forgot all about it until I got an e-mail from the company stating that now samples would inccur a shipping charge. Well, I figured I might as well just find it and try it for cost of the sample.
Soybutter is completely nut-free. Listed here are the health benefits. And it tastes really (really) close to peanut butter. I was so excited when I tried it because it's consistency is very close to peanut butter. I now can make puppy chow, soybutter sandwiches, soybutter cookies and so many other fun recipes for our nut-allergic daughter. I found it at Walmart under the Great Value label and it was just under $3. I would have never figured out that I could buy it there unless I had done the research prior. To find soybutter near you go here. To search a Walmart near you that may carry soybutter, go here.
Our daughter seemed to like her first bites. I put it on crackers. No reaction (you never really know no matter how safe it says it is). I call it a success as she ate two whole crackers and licked some of the other crackers. She also makes happy humming sounds when she eats something she likes and I heard those, too.
Our daughter does occasionally eat Sunbutter, but it's a hit and miss. The jar we have has small sunflower seeds in it and I'm not sure she likes those. It has a great flavor, too. But not exactly like peanut butter and it is a little more oily than peanut butter or soybutter.
