Vermont Peanut Butter (VPB) only sells its 16-ounce jars of Green Mountain-roasted goodness in that sliver of land wedged between New Hampshire and New York. But the company is going national with its new squeeze its packs. Green Mountain Goodness (almond and peanut butter with pumpkin and flax seeds), Good Karma (peanut butter with dark chocolate), Bee Nut Butter (ground peanuts sweetened with Vermont honey) and Almond Butter will be hitting shelves this June in stores nationwide.
The tear-top 1.15-ounce packs, each with 10 grams of protein for muscle recovery, are designed for eating on the go. VPB uses two varieties of peanuts in its blend, each roasted to a different darkness, and all natural ingredients—no sugar, trans fats, hydrogenation, palm oils, gluten, or preservatives. Its flavored peanut butters have added whey protein.
VPB peanut butter and almond butter are made in small batches, ground, filled, capped and shipped from Morrisville, Vermont. “Our ingredients are simple to read, good for your body, yummy on the palate and settling to your soul,” said Chris Kaiser, founder and president.
Jeremy Jones agrees. Vermont Peanut Butter just signed him as an athlete.
