If they have had sunflower oil I would give them sun butter... I haven't tried it I sis try soy butter myself it was ok.. But haven't with DS because it looks too much like PB and I don't want to confuse him.

we eat it and really like it. ds with food allergies probably likes it the least but he eats it occasionally.

if you're worried about a reaction, maybe put a dab on the skin and see if there is any sign of a reaction before eating it.

I really want to try this.
I thought for some reason we were supposed to avoid seeds (xcont maybe??) and then I see so many Pa people eat this.
I've seen it at Trader Joes before (I think about 3.99 a jar) but I don't know if it's the same thing. I think I read that ajaither (i'm sorry I can't remember if this is your exact user name) said it was.
Anyway, ENJOY [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

i'm in the same boat. we LOVE it but it's very expensive for me to get it here. i buy it two or three times a year and it's a real splurge. it's not that i mind spending money...just that i have a hard time paying as much or more for shipping and handling as for the actual product. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] if i could find sunbutter in my area, we'd be eating it all the time.
we've even considered becoming a distributor so that people in our area could have better, more affordable access to sunbutter. not sure what the demand is for it here but it's a favorite of mine. i LOVE the creamy and the crunchy. it's every bit as wonderful as i remember peanut butter being....
great for baking too.
i've learned to like soy butter a bit better than i used to since it's readily available at my local walmart supercenter (thank you, thank you, thank you Wal Mart!! i so appreciate them carrying it.). i do love sunbutter better but at least the soybutter is here and i don't have to pay for shipping and handling...

Sunbutter is not available here in Ottawa, so I have to buy it in the States.
We tried it first last winter, buying it at my parents place in Florida. DD really likes it, we came home with 2 jars and my parents brought 4 more home at the end of the winter.
Since then, I look for it everytime we go into the States. In the summer, in New Hampshire. 4 jars. In Southern Florida at Christmas, 3 jars, my parents travel too, and always look.
There are 3 jars currently on my shelf, 1 in the fridge. DD eats it by the spoonful.
I can't remember if it's Publix or Winn-Dixie I get it at. I think Publix.
So far, I have't had to order it, but I told DD I would if I have to.

I like sunbutter okay...DH likes it, but has issues with the texture. He doesn't like crunchy, likes smooth. All I can find here is the natural sunbutter, but I think there is another one that is less runny.
I think soynut butter is disgusting....I love soy nuts and eat them, but the soynut butter we have is icky. THe texture was great, but I thought the taste was way too strong.
Joeybeth, have you tried asking your grocery store to carry it? I have asked for certain items to be stocked and they usually try to accommodate...

We are very fortunate in northern indiana -- meijer - a major grocery store carries it for about 3.69 however in my tiny town there is a small family run store and they carry it for 2.19 or 2.69 I buy 4-5 jars at a time. My son is allergic to soy and peanuts so this is a perfect choice for us -- plus i like it better than soybutter anyway. Plus our elementary school now uses it instead of peanut butter -- thank goodness!!!

Does sunbutter have soy in it? Or is it a chance of cross-contamination with soy? My DD LOVES it!
