Justin's Snack Packs

I love, love, love Justin's nut butters. And I've been known to open a jar of maple almond butter (my fave!) and just dip a spoon in. Or my finger. Whatever's handy. But now Justin's has new snack packs, and they actually come with pretzel sticks for dipping. Pretzels are much tastier than fingers.


Justin's sent me some free product coupons so I could test these out. But I had the hardest time finding these in Memphis. Our Whole Foods doesn't carry them yet (but our store is particularly slow about getting new products), but Justin's store locator said I could find them at Target. A quick glance around the Target nearest me didn't produce any easy-to-find results though. I finally found these at a small indie health food store in Jonesboro, Arkansas, where my parents live. Hopefully, you'll have better luck! I need to make a request at my Whole Foods.

Anyway, I finally found these little packs, and I'm so glad I did. Each pack comes with pretzel sticks and a couple tablespoons of nut butter.


These are perfect for stuffing in a purse or lunch bag as a quick work day snack. On Thursdays, I go to a lunchtime yoga class at my gym. It runs from 11:30 to 12:30, so I always have a hearty snack before class to tide me over since I'm not able to eat a real lunch until about 12:45 or 1 p.m., when I get back to my desk. 

Last Thursday, before class, I snacked on the Hazelnut Chocolate Butter Snack Pack in the car. I've long been a fan of Justin's hazelnut chocolate butter (it's like vegan Nutella), and it paired wonderfully with the pretzels.


Today, I had the Classic Almond Butter Snack Pack before yoga class. The classic almond butter is a little thicker, so I broke a few pretzels off in it. But that was okay. Honestly, once all my pretzels were gone, I just dug my finger in. Not a drop of almond butter went waste, and I was satisfied throughout the entire yoga class.


There's also a Maple Almond Butter Snack Pack, but I wasn't able to find that one. I hope to stumble upon it soon though. I could see these becoming a crucial part of my Thursday snacks!

I love Justin's! I have a packet of the vanilla almond butter every day.

Such a good idea for people like me who can't portion control nut butter haha

Oh, I love their hazelnut butter with pretzels! I hope I see these somewhere soon - they sound delicious :)

I found these in a cute little corner store near Haight-Ashbury last week! I wasn't crazy about the fact that the almond butter needed stirring, and also broke a few pretzels that way. Overall, though, it's a great product idea and I'm extremely grateful to see it in stores, as both a vegan and someone with a peanut allergy!

This sounds like such a great idea! They're like the snacks of our childhoods, but grown up a little. I'd probably prefer the chocolate butter one, just because that sweet/salty combo is soo good (as surely you know)

I found these at my local Target, and my local Wegman's. But I couldn't tell you which section.

Was it just me, but I found that pretzels too buttery? I wasn't a big fan of that. But the nut butter was awesome!
