RxBar’s New 10 oz. Jars of Nut Butters Will Make You Rethink Your Old Peanut Butter
RXBar has a strict ‘no B.S.’ rule. There’s nothing on the label that is hard to pronounce or unrecognizable. And best of all, it tastes great — especially the nut butter. The clean-ingredient bar company launched 32-gram nut butter packets last May, and they quickly became a GP staff favorite. This week, RXBar supersized its nut butter with a 284-gram container. Now at 3 p.m., you’re bound to see at least one staffer here eating straight from the jar.
The jars come in the same flavors as the packets — Vanilla Almond, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Honey Cinnamon Peanut Butter, Maple Almond Butter, Almond Butter and Peanut Butter — all made from the same ingredients as the pouches. It’s basically egg whites, almonds, dates and coconut oil. While the oil is more noticeable in the jar, it’s no different in appearance than any all-natural nut butter. With the packets, it was nearly impossible to eat in anything other than oatmeal or smoothies, but the jar opens up a world of peanut butter and jelly possibilities. Stash it in the cooler or a backpack for easy-to-prepare mountain sandwiches, so you can skip the long lines at the ski lodge. Pick up a jar today for just $7.|
