Nostalgic Nosh

Nutter Butters are neither nutty (since, technically, peanuts are legumes) nor buttery (only partially hydrogenated cottonseed oil here), but they ARE vegan. As is the case with many unintentionally vegan items, they are only animal-friendly because chemical ingredients are often cheaper to use than real ones, like butter.  That being said, these cookies are not health food by any stretch of the imagination.  But, they were one of the faves of my childhood and, every now and then, I crave a little food nostalgia.

Of course, vegan treats like these are often WAY easier to come across than others due to wide distribution, which is a plus as well. Even if Nutter Butters were hard to find, however, I’d still search them out once in a blue moon to get my creamy, crunchy, peanuty fix. I prefer them dipped in almond milk so their sweetness seeps into the beverage, making it a deliciously decadent way to wash down the cookies at the end of snack time.

What accidentally vegan treats do you love?

Also, today is the last day to enter our Lightlife Contest, so get on it! I can’t wait to see who the winner is tomorrow….

    I was eating Nutter Butters today and noticed the Kosher Diary symbol on the package and I remembered that you had posted about Nutter Butter a while back. I don’t see any milk products listed in the ingredients, so why is it marked as Kosher Diary?

      Hi Tenneh, The Kosher dairy symbol just means that the item can be consumed with a dairy meal (meaning it doesn’t have meat in it) It doesn’t necessarily mean it has dairy in it.
