What is Nuttzo? It’s a nut and seed butter that comes in several varieties, but each is made with seven different nuts and seeds. They even offer some peanut-free versions.
Like many other natural nut butters, each Nuttzo jar required some serious arm muscle to stir. But once blended, I loved the upside down storage (their label is is inverted), which kept the nutty goodness from resettling on the bottom. Their packaging has changed a little in look (see the product images below), but still has this creative design.
Tasting Notes for Nuttzo Nut & Seed Butters
I’ve tried three “Crunchy” varieties of Nuttzo, but I think “Chunky” would have been a better descriptive title. They each had huge nut chunks, and the buttery based was generously spiked with little seeds for added textural interest. I’ve included details on those below, followed by a quick list of their other varieties. Feel free to leave your own unbiased rating and review below if you buy and try any of these nut and seed butters.
This was the “Original” Nuttzo, but they renamed it to “Peanut Pro.” It has a peanut-sunflower seed blend that definitely influences the base flavor. But the other nuts and seeds also add influence. It’s good, but the sunflower seeds do add a touch of bitterness.

This variety had an intense nutty, buttery flavor that was notably peanut-free, but had the addition of pumpkin seeds and chia seeds. There is no sugar added in Nuttzo, but the cashews and almonds combine with the touch of sea salt for hints of sweetness. This variety was very tasty on toast, but also a gem for sandwiches and dipping fruit. I imagine it would make a great ingredient for granola bars, too!

Surprisingly low in sugars for a chocolate delight (just 2 grams per 2 tablespoons), but the Nuttzo Chocolate isn’t overly sweet either. They’ve literally melted organic dark chocolate chips right into the creamy, chunky base of the Original Nuttzo. The nuts still take center stage, but as the second ingredient, the chocolate definitely has flavor influence and adds significant depth and bittersweet warmth. I don’t usually like chocolate nut butters on toast, but this one was more versatile than most.

Nuttzo is also available in single-serve packages! It’s a great way to sample any of the smooth varieties before taking the plunge into the full jars.

My husband is a huge, huge fan of this… he has been eating it for years! Our WF’s recently stopped carrying it- so we had to order it. He said it’s completely different- still very good- but he’s wondering if they’ve changed the recipe…
Has anyone else noticed a change?
New container product has changed
I was purchasing 4 containers from Costco per month; I loved this product.
My daily meals were smoothies and Nuttzo, but sadly the new containers came along and to me it is no longer thick as it was before,
I will try to buy up all the ones in the old containers,
Simple, stellar mix of healthy nuts and seeds, sans sugar.
Nuttzo Crunchy is seriously CHUNKY, with big bites of nuts and a generous smattering of seeds throughout. The tasty flavor blend was as unique as the packaging, and the ingredients include a simple, stellar mix of healthy nuts and seeds, sans sugar. But quality does come at a price; one that puts Nuttzo in our “luxury” category.
