We buy the creamy in the big tub for DS and the honey crunch in the small tub for me. Hmmmm--I think I''ll have that today for lunch.
I adore this stuff and think about it sometimes when I'm not eating it.
Try this:
half a banana sliced lengthways
honey drizzled on top (or if you have whipped honey, spread it on one slice of bread)
If you make safe granola, add that, otherwise, this sandwich is perfect on its own.

My PA ds does not like sunbutter at all. He says it smells like peanut butter. I had him try it and he spit it out. I actually think it is too close to pb for him to like it. However, we keep it in the house for the rest of us and we love it on toast, bagels, cookies, bars, etc... Our local grocery store carries it for about $2.00 a jar. I guess we are lucky!!

I purchased some SunButter online. My son got a little nervous because it smelled and looked so much like peanut butter. Then he made me nervous. This allergy drives us "nuts".
He just had more blood testing done to multiple foods due to many recent unexplained anaphylactic episodes. He has always sunflower seeds with no problems, but we are waiting for the results just in case!!
I believe they sell it at Trader Joe's. I haven't looked yet though.
On the jar, it says to put it in the fridge for freshness. Has anyone put it in the fridge? I'm wondering if it changes the texture at all.

My son won't even try it. It is "creepy" to him. That is fine by me, I have it because DH gets that PB withdrawl sometimes.
I made SB Blossoms once and it was funny, ds didn't know what kind of cookies they were and he hated them.
I have not refrigerated mine.

We ate the "natural" for a while..... about 5 bucks a jar, BTW. Ouch.
Anyway-- now all we can find is the "organic" which is totally unsalted and unsweetened. Ho-hum.
OTOH-- for DH, this is a good thing. A bit like methadone... [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

I've never tried it, what is it made of anyways?? The Soy Butter we couldn't have, soy allergy....but I have a feeling it would creep my son out too, it sounds too similar to peanut butter and he has a keen smell avoidance to that. I might check it out, but don't won't to push it if it freaks my son out in any way. Thanks for the info!

If your soy allergy is severe, you'll have to avoid Sunbutter--it's cross-contaminated in a fairly major way.
You can make your own, of course.

I love Sunbutter, and was actually preparing to put in an order this week. Was going to also order some of their trail mix with chocolate pieces. I got to thinking though about the manufacture of them, and wondered if they were made in their facility or brought in from somewhere. I tried calling but was on hold for over 7 minutes, so I hung up. I then sent an email, which hasn't been answered yet. Has anyone else talked to anyone from Sunbutter about the trail mix with the candy coated chocolate pieces? (they look like M&M's)

To a previous poster, we keep our opened jars of Sunbutter in the refrigerator. Doesn't seem to cause any problems - unless the bread for a sandwich is very fresh. DD uses a spoon, straight out of the jar, she has no complaints on texture! I did email the company, a while back, to see if is available in Canada, they did tell me the sunbutter could be frozen. So far, have not tried that, we never get to the sell-by date.
