Peanut butter is a truly wondrous thing, and evokes some of the most vivid memories of childhood like sticky sandwiches, heady straight spoonfuls, and ants-on-a-log. For your grown-up self, Big Spoon Roasters produces gorgeous mixed nut butters that delight both the inner child as well as the adult with their complex flavor and richness.
Mark Overbay started Big Spoon Roasters after savoring freshly roasted and ground peanut butter in Zimbabwe. Once home, he spent months searching for a comparable butter, but nothing quite cut it. Luckily for us, instead of throwing up his hands in defeat, Overbay started experimenting. The rest is decadently nutty history.
Big Spoon Roasters makes all its butters from fresh nuts (sourced from local and transparent producers), wildflower honey, and a touch of sea salt. No added vegetable oils, no chemical preservatives, no false flavorings. Just plain, nutty, goodness.
We’re especially partial to their Peanut Cocoa butter – there’s nothing quite like mixing nuts and chocolate to make a foodie swoon! We love it smeared on toast, mixed into homemade granola, or simply dolloped onto a bowl of fresh berries. Frankly, there isn’t a way to make this ambrosia taste anything less than heavenly.
A chill has just settled down on us, whispering “autumn has arrived”. What better way to usher in the fall than with a hearty spoonful of Big Spoon Roasters? Get yours in the shop today!
