And It Was Called…

by Sarah on July 30, 2012 · 21 comments

OK, class, raise your hand if you’re excited to find out the newest flavor of Nutty Butter!

[And the flavor that , the winner of my Christmas In July Nutty Butter Giveaway will be receiving in the mail?]

OK. Fine. It’s not like I’ve been doing a very good job of keeping it a secret. I mailed and delivered samples to a bunch of my trusted tastebuds,* and if you follow Kath, you’ve already read about it. [And that she likes it. ;) ]

*It’s true. I’m objectifying y’all.

so many new flavors still to come...

But every summer blockbuster is only made that much better by spoiler alerts, right? Every major musical release has an “accidental” leak? It just builds excitement…Let’s just say there is a reason this is my favorite mug (and tableware pattern) of all time.And there is a reason I made yellow, golden gazpacho this weekend (as opposed to a more traditional red).

My brainwaves have kept me so thematically obsessed with the new flavor of Nutty Butter, that I could not stop myself from wearing this dress two days in a row.

And I kept my nails painted this color* far longer than the manicure should have lasted. [To the point that it appeared to be a 'two-tone' nail job where the second tone was my natural nail...]

*Tweet Me. In case you were wondering.^

^No. ‘Tweet Me” is the name of the color. Don’t actually tweet me to find out. I mean. You can always tweet me, but you don’t have to in this case.And there is a reason I chose Chris Martin as this Nutty Butter, flavor-of-the-summer’s celebrity sponsor, and that he so graciously agreed to reverse the aging process and walk along a beach in the rain to sing about it.

This base,

This base of nuttinessTurns in…

…to something magical.

Oh please just say it’s sooh please just say it’s so–

[Insert epic synthesizer melody. Cue lighters.]And OK. It’s not exactly yellow.

But it is lemon.

A smooth cashew-almond-peanut base, with the flavor of lemon and a smidge of honey, plus coconut and almond bits for texture akin to the crust of a bar or cookie. It’s a favorite summer treat (or “a really good Girl Scout Cookie”) in butter form.

One taster said “dreams were coming true,” when she ate it. Another said “the best thing [she] ever tasted just came in the mail.”

It really might be “the best Nutty Butter yet.”

You’re welcome.*

*Especially you, Maria. :)

That lemon-y nut butter sounds amazing (and that mug is so cute! I have such a thing for cute dishware and flatware).

Very very cool idea. I’m not typically a huge lemon person, but this sounds really awesome!

You are doing some great things in the kitchen, lady! ;) I’ve very impressed with your creativity!

You used the words girl scout cookie and butter in the same sentence.
I’m SO there.

It is so freaking good! I was trying to figure out what the flavor was and I was thinking key lime pie, but I couldn’t quite convince myself that it was that.

Also … can one place an order for a flavor not yet released? If so, I think you know what I want. It also involves a yellow fruit.

Seriously guys. This is the best stuff that has ever come out of the The Smart Kitchen. She should market it to Costco and sell in giant mayo-sized tubs.

And I’m not one to exaggerate.

Sarah, you’ve out-done yourself.

How much is express shipping?
