Updated 2020! I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised to see a Generation Z entrepreneur launching their own natural food product line. But somehow I was still in awe when I discovered Abby’s Better Nut Butter. Fifteen-year-old Abby Kircher initially rolled out not one, but five varieties of cashew, almond, and pecan butters. And now, as she barely enters adulthood, she is selling ten different flavors!
First, I must say that I love the packaging. The look is clean, fresh, and recognizable, and the BPA-free wide mouth jars are so much easier to scrape every last bit from. And I wasn’t leaving a speck behind!
These are some of the purist, highest quality nut butters that I’ve had the pleasure to enjoy. They do come at a slightly luxurious price, but I think you get what you pay for. And they are definitely gift-worthy!
And if an ambitious young founder and high quality ingredients aren’t enough reasons to consider Abby’s Better Nut Butter, I have two more. First, 10 percent of all profits are donated to global charities. Second, the taste is phenomenal.
Unbiased Tasting Notes for Abby’s Better Nut Butter
I had the chance to sample a few flavors Abby’s Better Nut Butters. I’ve included full details on those below, followed by a quick list of the other varieties offered.
Coconut Cashew Butter (pictured below)
I’ve found my new favorite nut butter! This variety of Abby’s Better Nut Butters is so rich and creamy, it puts those processed varieties to shame. I wanted to eat it with a spoon! It’s sugar-free, but has a wonderful natural sweetness that makes it perfect atop toast, with apples, or stirred into warm grains. It does have subtle hints of coconut and cashew, but somehow the coconut and cashew harmoniously create their own flavor.

This flavor has nearly the same delightful texture as the Coconut Cashew Butter. It’s luxurious and has a very light natural sweetness. However, the strawberry flavor is much lighter than I expected. In fact, if I hadn’t read the label, I never would have guessed it was strawberry. It’s still delicious, but I’d love to try an extra fruit infusion.

When I tried this variety, dates were the first ingredient. Consequently, it was sweeter and the texture was more like a Larabar than a nut butter. They’ve since reversed the order, and now make this with more pecans for a buttery finish.
