[b]Thanks for the information on Trader Joe's. I have in the past emailed the Sunbutter company asking for what stores carried sunbutter and what states it was available but no response. We are down to three jars! How is it that it is 2.69 in the grocery store in ND and 3.50 on the website? Plus shipping! It is a great product, my DH who ate PB everyday is much happier, but there is a $$ limit![/b]
Trader Joe's doesn't carry the Sunbutter "brand" --- they carry their own Trader Joe's Sunflower Seed Butter --- I happened to confirm they were packaging up Sunbutter under their own label. It does say "peanut free" on the label :-)

just wanted to say that we have tried two different sunbutters....the natural one that our kids' school serves now instead of peanut butter (yeah!!! school!!!) and the creamy version which i buy for our home. if you haven't tried the creamy type, i highly recommend it. it's incredible, wonderful, delicious.....
the natural is good too but it's thicker or more dry or something. (more like a natural pb). the creamy version tastes very similar to what i remember jif tasting like some 10 years ago when i last tasted pb. in fact, i think i like sunbutter better.
i LOVE sunbutter creamy. my kids have to fight me for the jar. : )

Sue, I am raising both of these because we got some free trail mix with our order of 2 samples of sunbutter. Did you check back to find out if the chocolate was manufactured in a nut free facility. How about the soybeans in it?
My dd would love to try it and I have no response from the company. That disappoints me after they posted here. I had a question and it has gone unanswered. becca

becca , we got the free trail mix too, and I did check on their website and it says that everything in it is completely pn and tn free. I didn't call because I knew my ds wouldnt eat it anyways.
When I ordered, I screwed up and ordered from an old bookmark and ordered from ShopND. Well its no longer sold through them. I called Sunbutter and talked to Dan Hofland, the one who posted here and he was very helpful. Maybe you could call him. I have his number around here if you want it. Let me know.

A part of me is annoyed that I would get no response from him in either my email or post here, after his solicitation for questions!
But, sure, I will take his number and try calling, since there are a few others here interested in the details on the component ingredients in the trail mix.
I was also curious because if they are safe, maybe they would consider packaginf and selling the candy pieces alone. Perhaps they are taking time to find out since I indirectly suggested that.
Editing to add I called and left a message for a Kevin(forget last name). I will post back. Found the 800# right on the site. becca becca

The trail mix is safe, according to Kevin. He said they did check with the supplier. I went to the website and I do not recall this being there before. It seems they have added that they do testing(they gave numbers) for peanut allsergens and all their products pass a certain level, as well as all ingredients being peanut free. Maybe they have been getting more calls.
He also made note of the fact that many of us might want to purchase the candy on its own, if they have a supplier with peanut free candies such as that. I told him they are impossible to find in this country. He sounded interrested, though it turns a different direction fron their exisiting healtyh product line! But I said it might just be a nice thing for loyal PA/TNA customers if they could distribute those as well.
I was trying to order some seeds and trail mix and could not get the page to go to the next one to calculate shipping and checkout. becca

The container for "Natural" Sunbutter has a "U" with a circle around it.

Awesome! Thanks so much for checking.
Does anyone know about the creamy version? I ask because that's the one that comes in four pound tubs. Great for school cafeterias.

All of their sunbutter products are certifed kosher. As far as I know, the only ones without a hechsher are the trail mixes. You can call and ask them, too, if the info is not on the website.
