The Nut Butter Company Review

I bet you saw the title of this post and immediately clicked on it, because let’s be real, who doesn’t like nut butter?! 😛 The Nut Butter Company is a company I came across on Instagram (check them out at @TheNutButterCompany)! Of course, being an avid lover of all sorts of nut butters, I decided to reach out to the company and ask if they could send some samples for me to review. They were more than willing to do so, so here I am with a review!

I was sent small jars of four of their nut butters: Cashew Honey Dark Chocolate, Walnut Brown Sugar Coconut, Almond Espresso Cinnamon, and Cashew Rosemary Shallot. Below is a short review of each flavor!

Cashew Honey Dark Chocolate:

Immediately when I saw the name of this one, I knew it would be the first one to try! This flavor has a smooth, creamier consistency than the other three in my opinion. I really enjoyed this one because I adore dark chocolate, and this flavor combination was to die for! This was probably one of my favorites of the four.

Walnut Brown Sugar Coconut:

This was the second one I tried. It definitely did not disappoint one bit! Over the past couple years I have taken a liking to the coconut flavor (which I actually used to find disgusting), so I thoroughly enjoyed this butter. The consistency of this one was chunkier than the others — which I really like! Chunks = love. 🙂 This was also one of my favorites of the four butters I received!

Almond Espresso Cinnamon:

I actually only just tried this one yesterday because I’m not a huge fan of the coffee/espresso flavor in general. But earlier this week I decided to try and slowly get myself to like coffee (why I’m doing this, I have no idea :P). That being said, I decided to finally give this one a go! All I have to say is that this flavor was pretty darn good! It has a great flavor ratio, if that makes sense. The consistency of this one was smooth and creamy.

This was the final of the four that I tried, and again, I only just tried it yesterday. Judging by the name, I was a little bit on the leery side. The flavor combo sounded a little different to me for some reason. Although, I’m usually all for trying weird combos because a lot of the time they actually turn out being strange-but-good combos! So with that in mind I went for it. In all honesty, it was probably my least favorite of the group, BUT that doesn’t mean I didn’t like it! This was also more of a smooth consistency, but it seemed a little thicker than the others. But all in all, I enjoyed this flavor, and if you’re into a little extra spice, you will like this flavor!

 Finally, I would like to end with an overall review! One thing I really like about these flavors is that they’re unique! They’re not just your regular old peanut butter or almond butter (although sometimes simple tastes amazing)! These are some flavor combinations that I have never thought of before, but I really, really like them!

Again, I truly want to thank everyone over at The Nut Butter Company for their generosity in sending me these samples, and I strongly encourage you to go check them out at http://www.thenutbuttercompany.com/!

Thin Slim Foods

Woofta! It’s been quite a long, busy, but rewarding past few weeks! I have been incredibly busy with classes, so that is why I have been neglecting my blog for a little while!

Anyway, I have finally found some free time to write up a quite post here before I eat some food, be lazy and watch The Proposal on ABC Family! 😛

Today I want to write about an awesome company that I discovered through Instagram! The company is Thin Slim Foods. I reached out to them by email after finding them on Instagram and doing some research. They were gracious enough to send me a sample pack of their products, and HOLY COW! I literally can’t think of a bad thing to say about their products I tried!

Before I get into talking about the amazing taste and texture of their products, I want to give you guys some background info on the company. The nutrition information and the macro’s in general for their products is pretty dang awesome! They are high in protein, low in calories, low in carbs, and sugar free! Now, I am not a person to say I try to avoid carbs, because let me tell you, carbs are my one and only. So even if Thin Slim Foods’ products were higher in carbs, I’d still love them just as much. 🙂 Anyway, like I said before, the overall nutritional value of these products is great!

Now on to my quick mini-review of the products!

Plain Bread: I absolutely LOVE the texture of the bread! It’s so chewy and amazing!

Brownie: HOLY MOLY. The brownie literally tasted like a real unhealthy brownie! It was so chocolatey and chewy and moist! Fabulous!

Cinnamon Cookie: Y.U.M. First of all, the flavor was definitely on point, and it had the perfect amount of cinnamon in it! The texture was also great!

Almond Square: I am still at a loss for words! Along with all the other products, the flavor and texture were impeccable! I love the almond flavor of this yummy, healthy treat!

Last but not least was the Vanilla Cupcake. Unfortunately, I failed to see the “Please refrigerate or freeze” notice on the wrapper, so I let it sit on my food shelf in my dorm and proceeded to forget about it for a little while. So it got moldy, and a very sad me did not get to try it. 😦 But I’m sure it was just as amazing as everything else!

So given everything that I have said, I highly suggest you head on over to their website: http://www.thinslimfoods.com/

and their Instagram page: :ThinSlimFoods

If you have tried their products, let me know what you think, and if you haven’t, you need to!! 🙂
