If you’re a nut butter fan who loves healthy food, being on the go, and brands with a conscience, then read on, as YumButter might be your holy grail of spreads.
Though it comes in jars, too, my first introduction to YumButter was their newer “Go” packs (pictured), which are multi-serve, squeezeable, and resealable! Great in theory, still good in execution, but not perfect. The one flaw was that with the quantity in each package, I simply could not get it to emulsify.
Tasting Notes for YumButter Organic Superfood Nut Butters
You know how natural nut butter separates, and you have to stir it, or in the case of squeeze packs, knead it, to bring it back to pure creaminess? Well, I kneaded these Go packages until my hands cramped up, which helped, but the first squeezes were still really runny and the last ones really thick and hard to get out. I think kneading a stiffer package with a larger quantity is just a little tricky. That said, the YumButter in all of those middle squeeze servings was just right. (Luckily, they now have YumButter in Jars, too.)
And what you get inside those YumButter Go packs isn’t ordinary nut or seed butter, it’s SUPERFOOD buttery goodness. Each pouch is spiked with organic chia seeds, hemp seeds, goji berries, and lucuma, all blended to a smooth, creamy, yet slightly rustic consistency.
We originally tried YumButter Superfood Almond Butter, Peanut Butter, and Sunflower Seed Butter. Unfortunately, they discontinued the Superfood versions of their Peanut Butter and Sunflower Seed Butter. But they did add a Superfood Cashew Butter, which we have yet to try. Nonetheless, I’ve included details on it below.
This was the first one that I sampled, and it remained my favorite right until the end of the tastings. It has a mild but rich flavor that’s lightly sweet, gently savory, but not at all salty. I think it’s definitely excellent without any added salt, but a pinch wouldn’t hurt! (Update: They added salt!) This variety is notable for a good dose of calcium (9% of RDA) and iron (15% of RDA), too.

Great taste, just a bit pricey and not a go-pack fan
I tried the Almond Superfood Butter and it’s quite tasty. Love the ingredients, consistency, and flavor. The price tag is just a bit higher than I can regularly justify. And the squeeze pack is not my friend. Getting it to emulsify took so much time, and even then I made a mess trying to get the last bits out. I’m better off with the jars!
