Fix & Fogg: More Great Artisan Nut Butters
Last November, we discovered Fix & Fogg Nut Butters, a brand from New Zealand that made outstanding nut butters—almond, cashew, hazelnut, and peanut—that have won awards worldwide.
We declared them to be great stocking stuffers. And we have been happily eating them ever since. Three of our particular passions: the peanut butters in Coffee And Maple, Dark Chocolate, and Smoke And Fire.
Beyond PB sandwiches, we typically eat them right from the jar: a spoonful of delectable protein (8 g per two-tablespoon serving) along with our morning coffee, a wonderful way to avoid refined carbs.
You can make sandwiches, cook, and bake with it, of course. There are recipes on the website, and you can download a free e-book.
Recently, we had the opportunity to focus on four more flavors:
And there are so many more varieties to try. Just head to the website to see the glorious bounty of nut butters.
So Fix & Fogg is our Top Pick Of The Week: delicious food that is good for you, too.
One can only smile at the taste and texture of each of these top-quality nut butters. You can taste the quality of the nuts, plus:
The name Fix & Fogg comes from two characters from the classic 1873 adventure novel, Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne: Phileas Fogg and Detective Fix. Like the story, the idea of embarking on a great journey, taking risks, and trying new things, resonated with F&F’s founders.
“Although we’re not quite sold in 80 countries around the world,” they say, “maybe one day we could do just that.”
Beyond New Zealand and Australia, the brand has sailed to China, the Philippines, Samoa, Singapore, Tahiti, and the U.S.
Come on Canada! Come on Europe! Come on Latin America, where the peanut and cashew originated. Great nut butters await you!
Toward their sustainability goals, Fix & Fogg is the first New Zealand-owned food manufacturer to be awarded B Corp certification.
