I’m a huge fan of the show Shark Tank and while watching it a few weeks ago (maybe a couple months ago by now) I saw a pitch for a very interested product called “Nuts ‘n More” which included peanut butter, chocolate peanut butter, and almond butter.
The idea of Nuts ‘n More is that they are providing a healthier peanut butter that includes protein and organic flax. This is perfect for both guys trying to bulk up and add muscle, and it’s even a healthier choice for those looking to lose fat (as long as it’s used in moderation).
Right when I saw the episode I knew I wanted to give them a try so I ordered two containers – the chocolate peanut butter and regular peanut butter. I’ve had them for a few weeks now so I thought I would review them for anyone interested.
What is in Nuts ‘n More?
The Nuts ‘n More Peanut Butter ingredients include Peanuts, Flax, Whey Protein, Natural Sweetener, and Natural Extract. The chocolate is pretty much the same but it has Cocao added. Peanuts are a good source of protein and fats as long as you have it in moderation. They whey protein added is a great way to get extra protein in (as most people don’t get enough daily), and the added flax is a great way to get some healthy fats as well.
A serving size is a 2 tbsp which is generous and will give you 206 calories with 14 grams of fat, 6 grams of carbohydrates (only 1g sugar), and 14 grams of protein.
How does it taste?
It is quite tasty and I would happily substitute it for my regular peanut butter (I normally use natural). I don’t often eat bread or toast, but just to test out the taste I’ve tried it on a piece of toast and made a peanut butter and banana sandwich another time. I would rate the taste a 9/10. It tastes good, and maybe not quite as good as the less healthy peanut butters with sugar added, but the nutritional value is well worth it.
Overall Review Rating
I would give Nuts ‘n More a 9.5/10 for review purposes.
Although they did add some natural sweeteners the nutritional value is great. If you are trying to lose weight you can go with half a serving size (1 tbsp) and still get 7 grams of protein, 2.5 grams of fiber, and 7 grams of healthy fats. If you are trying to put on muscle you can go with 1 or 1.5 servings sizes and add some healthy fats, proteins, and carbs to your daily meal plan with a great tasting product.
For anyone looking to lose fat or stay lean I don’t recommend eating peanut butter and toast or peanut butter sandwiches, which is what many people think of when they want to have some peanut butter. The bread is added calories and carbohydrates you don’t want. Instead try some peanut butter on celery or a banana, or throw the peanut butter in the blender with some more protein and ice to make a shake.
If you can get your hands on Nuts ‘N More I highly recommend you substitute that for your regular peanut butter or at least give it a try.
