My sil has a coworker with a multi food allergic child (including pa)& she said he safely eats Sunbutter & loves it. Does anyone else have any experience with it?

My non PA ds eats it all the time. If you do a search you will find a lot of good reviews for it.

we loved it! i am hoping it will be available in my area soon so shipping and handling won't be so high. it was the closest alternative to peanut butter i've found. though i like soynut butter (especially for baking), i found the sunbutter to be much better on bread like a pb&j. almond butter and cashew butter were wonderful too but they are may contains so that didn't help my children out at all. we don't purchase those anymore because i discovered none of the ones in our area are "safe." the sunbutter is something we can all enjoy and it is really, really good imo.

If you go to [url="http://www.shopnd.com"]www.shopnd.com[/url] you can get it cheaper and it includes shipping. I thought it was much more reasonable.

Thanks! I just ordered some for the first time! We have the soynut butter and my dh hates it, my ds likes it okay. Hopefully they will both love it!

We like it here at our house. It's especially useful in cooking when a PB substitute is needed.
However, my husband and I really love the "earthy" taste of pumpkin seed butter mixed with a little confectionary sugar. Doesn't taste that well in recipes, but love it on toast.
