The Nutty Truth: Why Peanuts Wear Cashews (and Why You Need Both Butters in Your Life)

Posted by Nick Sheridan on

Have you ever heard the riddle: "What do peanuts wear on their feet?" The punchline, of course, is "Cashews!" But what if we told you there's a deeper truth hidden within this silly joke? A truth about the delicious world of nut butters and their surprising synergy?

Beyond the Pun: A Tale of Two Butters

At 99th Monkey Nut Butters, we're passionate about crafting the creamiest, dreamiest nut butters you can imagine. But we're also big believers in the power of unexpected combinations. So, let's delve into the contrasting characters of our Salted Cashew Butter and our Natural Peanut Butter, and why they deserve a place side-by-side in your pantry (and on your toast).

Peanut Butter: The All-American Classic

This beloved spread needs no introduction. Creamy, comforting, and nostalgically linked to childhood memories, Peanut Butter is a true pantry staple. Its rich, nutty flavour and smooth texture make it perfect for everything from classic PB&Js to decadent dips and even savoury sauces.

But Peanut Butter isn't just delicious; it's also packed with protein, fibre, and healthy fats, making it a nutritious choice for snacking and fuelling your day. We use only the highest quality peanuts, roasted to perfection and blended into a smooth, irresistible spread.

Salted Cashew Butter: The Sophisticated Newcomer

Cashews, with their slightly sweet, buttery flavour and luxurious texture, add a touch of elegance to the nut butter world. Our Salted Cashew Butter takes this experience to the next level, with a hint of sea salt that enhances the natural sweetness and creates a depth of flavour that truly surprises.

Salted Cashew Butter isn't just about taste; it's also a powerhouse of nutrients. Cashews are a good source of magnesium, copper, and manganese, making them a healthy addition to your diet. Their creamy texture also adds a unique dimension to smoothies, sauces, and even baked goods.

The Unexpected Harmony: Why Cashews and Peanuts Belong Together

So, back to the riddle. While Peanuts might not literally wear cashews on their feet, they certainly complement each other perfectly in the culinary world. The richness and familiarity of Peanut Butter pairs beautifully with the sophisticated sweetness and textural intrigue of Salted Cashew Butter.

Think about it: a dollop of Salted Cashew Butter swirled into your morning Peanut Butter smoothie adds a delightful twist. Or, layer them on toast for a textural and flavour explosion that will leave you wanting more.

Beyond the Spread: Exploring the Versatility of Nut Butters
