January 24th isn't just another day on the calendar, monkeys. It's a day dedicated to the creamy, crunchy, salty, sweet, utterly irresistible phenomenon that is peanut butter. And who better to lead the charge than your favourite band of mischievous monkeys, 99th Monkey Nut Butters!
A Nutty History:
The humble peanut, despite its name, is actually a legume. But its journey to becoming a beloved spread is a fascinating one. Archaeological evidence suggests peanut butter was enjoyed by the Incas as far back as 800 BC! Fast forward to the 19th century, and the first commercial peanut butter was produced in Canada. From there, it hopped across the border, capturing the hearts (and stomachs) of the world. Today, peanut butter is a global phenomenon, a pantry staple enjoyed in countless ways.
99th Monkey's Peanut Butter Playground:
But here at 99th Monkey, we're not content with just the ordinary. We're all about crafting peanut butter that's a symphony of flavour and texture, a nutty adventure for your taste buds. We start with the finest, freshest peanuts, roasted to perfection for maximum flavour release. Then, we grind them into a crunchy bliss. And that's just the beginning!
A Toast to Tradition:
Let's start with the classics, shall we? The iconic peanut butter and toast—a breakfast masterpiece that never gets old. But even here, 99th Monkey elevates the experience. Ditch the bland supermarket stuff and dive into our Natural Crunchy Peanut Butter. We produce both an Unsalted National Peanut Butter and a Salted Natural Peanut Butter. Roasted to perfection, our peanuts sing with rich, nutty flavour, and the crunchy bits add a satisfying textural symphony in every bite. Toast just got upgraded, folks.
Adventures Beyond the Bread:
But who says peanut butter belongs on just bread? Get ready to unleash your inner culinary monkey and explore a world of peanut butter possibilities! For a protein-packed lunch that's bursting with flavour, stir our Peanut Butter into salads, or whip up a spicy Thai peanut sauce for chicken or tofu stir-fries. Feeling adventurous? Bake sweet or savoury peanut butter cookies studded with choc chips or roasted vegetables. You can even craft gourmet burgers with a dollop of our Peanut Butter for a flavour explosion.
The Sweet Side of the Nut:
Drizzle it over pancakes, swirl it into smoothies, bake chewy oatmeal cookies or add it to your overnight/microwave oats.
Monkeying Around with Sustainability:
But here at 99th Monkey, we're not just about indulging our taste buds. We're also passionate about protecting the planet and ensuring our love for peanut butter doesn't come at a cost. That's why we use only the highest quality, sustainably sourced peanuts and minimise our environmental impact every step of the way. So, when you spread our peanut butter, you're not just spreading deliciousness, you're spreading good vibes for the planet too.
