Hi,
I just tried this peanut butter substitute that I found at Walmart. Tastes pretty good; I will use it instead of Sunbutter since it is so hard to find the latter in my area.

Produced in a Canadian facility that is peanut/tree nut/gluten and dairy free. Obviously contains SOY.

We love this Soybutter. As someone who ate peanut butter often before we discovered my son's allergies it is a perfect replacement. We have also baked with it at Xmas. I have had several people try it and they are shocked at the similarities to peanut butter. I buy a couple of jars a month. My son won't touch it but at least it a safe alternative for us.

I've often considered trying something like this, if only to make lunches easier when I'm down on leftovers. But after over two decades of being conditioned to avoid peanut butter, so much that the smell makes me feel uneasy and a bit nauseated (and I'm ingestion only!), I don't know if I'd find it all that appetizing! Though my mum tells me that before I was diagnosed, I apparently didn't much care for peanut butter anyway :? Your son is certainly not alone in that regard, frevic.

Has anyone else kicked that aversion?

We've tried this. I prefer the flavour of Sunbutter however, in this one, the oil does not seem to separate.

We use it occasionally, albeit mostly for baking. I like the taste, as does my husband. :)

I like the taste of sunbutter better too but that product is carried at a very few specialty stores in my area (Edmonton). It is nice to see something that is stocked at a regular grocery store.

I haven't seen Sunbutter in Edmonton area stores either so I haven't been able to try it. The WOWbutter (crunchy and smooth) can be found at Save on Foods and Walmart.
