Cream-Nut Peanut Butter Debuts in NYC

Goober lovers will want to check this new old brand out.


One of the best parts of the Age of Foodism is the way that diverse odd products come sailing our way when we least expect them. A case in point is the smirkingly named Cream-Nut Peanut Butter.

It's currently available at Murray's Cheese, but has been made in Grand Rapids, Michigan, since 1925. The originator was someone named Albertus Koeze, and the only ingredients are Virginia peanuts and sea salt.

How has this brand not died? Well, now it's partly our responsibility to keep it alive, because the peanut butter is unlike any you've ever tasted before.

It's available in smooth or chunky, but the smooth variety is actually rather coarsely ground, and might pass for chunky in another brand.

The spread doesn't taste much like peanut butter; it tastes like you just put freshly roasted peanuts in your mouth, only someone's already chewed them up for you. The peanut butter is actually lighter-colored than usual, making me think the goobers have been only lightly toasted before creaming. The price: $6.99 for 17 ounces, how random!

And what does that name mean?

Even the smooth is somewhat chunky.

This peanut butter is seriously good! I've been getting it at the Brooklyn Farmacy and Soda Shop, whose bookkeeper is from MI.
