I had the opportunity to try your SunButter last year, but could not find it anywhere. Recently found it at Whole Foods at Interbay..I saw the Natural Crunch and decided to buy it over your creamy. I was glad I did. It was just as good, if not better than your creamy. Thank you.

I have a gluten alergy and sometimes when I eat regular peanut butter it upsets my stomach. SunButter has never upset it and it just tastes GREAT!


Discovered it while living in NYC and LOVE IT!! So nice to have an alternative to peanut butter. So relieved it is available in Canada too.

Love, love, love this! It's so tasty and I find myself reaching for the jar of this instead of peanut butter...and I'm a peanut butter junkie! I look forward to trying more of the Sunbutter products.

The whole family loves it and it is great as there is one child with a peanut alergy. Problem RCSS has stopped carrying it. Your product is the only true nut-free one we could find that wasn't priced too high.

I've fallen in love with your sunbutter. On our last trip to visit family in CA I gave jars to friends and family and they feel the same way. I just had to check this AM, we're going to be traveling in our motorhome for several months and I wanted to be sure that we could find Sunbutter.

I totally love sunbutter. My daughter is allergic to peanuts and apart from almond butter there are few alternatives here. I order this online from the USA and though it costs a lot to get it shipped its worth it. Have been trying to get uk supermarkets to ship it but not having much luck yet!

I first heard of Sunbutter from an online friend in Canada, but I didn't go check it out immediately. Then, just the other week, I saw it and remembered! So I bought one without looking - Natural Crunch (and I don't like Crunchy). But this was a pleasant surprise, the crunch was not hard on my teeth, rather it was delicate. I'm not allergic to peanuts, someone in my family is. So this is the BEST answer to wanting something to spread on bread. (Forget the bread.... I'll eat it right out of the jar it's THAT GOOD!

Your product is incredibly delicious! Spread on a tart, crisp apple, it's a great alternative to cake or cookies, because it tastes just like a caramel apple. You need to market your product more -- I stumbled across it in the grocery store and gave it a try, but I never see any ads for it, and I don't know anyone else who's tried it. Your homepage seems to be largely telling a non-gluten story/non-peanut story, which is only appealing to a small niche of people; I'd play up the flavor story, and pitch SunButter as a novel, delicious alternative for people who like peanut butter.


Thank You So Much! My husband and I LOVE Peanut Butter, but have not been able to eat it for 9 years now, since both our children have life-threatening allergies to peanuts, tree nuts etc. We dont even buy products that have been manufactures in a plant that processes them. It is a comfort food that we have missed terribly. I stumbled across your product in a local health food store, and was excited when I saw it is processed in a dedicated facility. When my husband & I had out first "PB&J" in many years, we were both grinning like kids! Your company is doing a service to families that have to sacrifice for their loved ones. THANK YOU!!!


I absolutely love this product and have encouraged many others to buy it as well {even those who do not have peanut allergies} I always have a sunbutter sandwich at least once a day!


I love Sunbutter! It tastes delicious and I love the crunchy texture of the seeds. It has become an important part of my healthy diet regimen. I prefer Sunbutter to peanut butter.


I think I'm addicted to Sunbutter Crunch. I have always loved real peanut butter but due to my 1 year old's allergies; I had to make the switch. Although it is a little on the pricey side; it is delish! Love it! Thank you for making such a wonderful alternative to PB!

I developed a tree nut allergy about 7 years ago, and for a while I really missed peanut butter (thanks to the cross-contamination). I discovered Sunbutter and have been eating it ever since. I've even convinced people who don't have allergies to enjoy it too. Thanks for making something so tasty!

I just found your product, I had to buy the natural crunch since I couldn't find the organic since I need no cane sugar , but it's so good and my kids love it! I have a girl with a peanut allergy. I blogged about it I can't wait to blog more lunches and recipes with your Sunbutter! if you ever have a sale on larger quantities of the organic sunbutter let me know! I'd love a six pack so I'll keep checking back also. thanks


Just finished off my first jar of Sunbutter and have to tell you that I LOVED IT! We do have 2 members in our household with celiac, but we don't have any nut allergies. I just bought it because it looked like something different to try AND because you have gone the extra mile to actually label it GLUTEN FREE. Thank you for this amazing product!


Our grocery store (in my very small Texas town) just did a "remodel" of their store and added an entire section for "allergy concious" food items. I am new to this "world of food allergies" and was SO excited to find this product now in my HEB store!! It is fantastic and delicious!! Never stop making it.. PLEASE!!!!

So we got our first thing of Sunbutter on Wednesday, by Thursday it was gone. I had originally ordered this for my husband and son to try to replace peanut butter in our home since my daughters are allergic (we also have allergies to tree nuts,egg, corn, fish, bell pepper, and celery in our home). Well when my oldest daughter who is now 11 was around the age of 2 before we knew she developed the peanut allergy - she loved peanut butter. When we discovered she was allergic it was devastating, and as the years went by she became more and more allergic. Her allergy is now airborne as well as contact. So I never in a million years thought she would even try the sunbutter, as I said I got it as an alternative for my husband and son who desperately miss peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. So I get the product delivered to work from UPS - take it home, and she smells it - she is like well smells just like it but I aint dead yet. Then she wanted to taste it - she was very leery about this, took a small bite and waited a couple minutes. She says tastes just like i remember peanut butter tasting but I aint dead yet. So a few more minutes goes by and she grabs a spoon and starts eating it right out of the jar!!! Then the husband comes home, and eats 3 sunbutter and jelly sandwiches - he says - I can not even tell the difference!!! My son meanwhile is claiming he is in heaven and wants me to buy 100 more jars of the stuff. So eventually I make them stop eating it, telling them leave some for lunch tomorrow. I get home the next day and my daughter says - its gone - I snacked on it all day, when are we getting more. Yet my youngest daughter who is 9 - never cared for peanut butter even before we knew she was allergic. She wont even try it - it smells like it mom I am not trying it. So later on in the evening I say to my oldest daughter - so you REALLY like it? I was so surprised you even tried it. She says mom - I feel like all of my life I have had these chains on me and now they are broken. I know my food allergy to peanuts and treenuts is not gone but it is like I found a way to defy it and say to my allergy you didn't win, I found a way around you. Thank you for giving my daughter that.

Sunbutter is a delicious and safe alternative to peanut butter at our home. Both my daughters are anaphylactic to peanuts and tree nuts (among other foods), so we do not bring any of those into our home. I just finished a delightful Sunbutter and Jelly Sandwich and wanted to say thanks.

Great substitute for peanut butter. Tastes fantastic. I have Sunbutter and jelly sandwiches all the time now!

I LOVE SunButter. I found it about a year and a half ago in the whole foods section at the grocery store looking for something else. I have been allergic to peanuts/tree nuts for over ten years and was so pleased to have all my favorites again! (SunButter and banana sandwiches, SunButter with apple slices, and SunButter cookies)! I especially enjoy the texture that the natural crunch offers. It's even way better than crunchy peanut butter!! Now, even my kids and husband who don't have any allergies won't eat anything else! It's nice to have something so nutritious right on hand that my whole family can enjoy!!

Hello - I just wanted to write and tell you how much I enjoy your product. The school I teach at went peanut free this year due to multiple students with severe peanut allergies. As a result, I needed to seek a safe alternative to peanut butter. I tried sun butter and LOVED it! We also started my daughter (1 yr) on SunButter and she loves SunButter and jelly sandwiches. In fact, she will not even take a bite of a peanut butter sandwich. Thank you! - Kristen

I LOVE SunButter!!! The Natural Crunch is my favorite. It is more easily digestible than soynut butters I've tried....and I've always loved the flavor of sunflower what a treat! Especially since I must follow a Gluten-free, Peanut-free, Tree nut-free, Kosher Parve dietary lifestyle, this is one food I can enjoy with great pleasure and peace of mind. I am planning on having my local Health Food store order the Organic Unsweetened since the stores in my area don't carry it. Thank You!

My first time tasting Sunbutter was at an Expo in Bismarck, ND. I am speechless, there is no words to describe how good Sunbutter is! Its been 2 years and never went back to Peanut butter.


omg! I am so happy i found your crunchy SunButter!!! A sunflower-seed-lover's dream come true!

I love your product and have introduced your amazing concoction to at least 10 friends who love it too! I have one comment. The foil cover under the lid has no tab on it for easy removal so you have to cut it off with a knife. Any thought to putting an easy pull tab on the foil lid so you can just lift it off? Thanks for making such a fantastic nutritious, delicious and fun product!


Than you so much for creating a peanut-free product like this. I could honestly live off of sunflower seeds, and I was so happy to discover this product. As much as I know that I can't eat peanuts, I still miss the texture of eating straight crunchy peanut butter off a spoon or with apples. After 6 years, I was finally able to enjoy that! I absolutely love it, and it is definitely worth the extra couple dollars. My store only sells the Natural Crunch or Creamy, but not that I see that there are other products, I can't wait to try them. THANK YOU SO MUCH! I absolutely love it.

My daughter has a peanut allergy and we have been using this product for about 3 years now. Thank you so much for making such a delicious, nut free alternative. We feel save using this product and we don't have to "miss out" on recipes, etc that call for sun butter. My whole family loves it and we have told others about it. Thanks again!

I love SunButter Natural Crunch :) it makes it so i don't miss crunchy peanut butter anymore!! it's difficult to grow into a peanut allergy as an adult because i know what i'm missing but SunButter helps me not crave the thing that will kill me anymore :) Thanks!!

My name is Erik Gola. I have been severely allergic to every nut known to man and I am also allergic to a very large amount of other food items. I haven't had any sort of nut in over 20 years due to my fear of possible death and because of an accident with peanuts that did almost killed me. I just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH! I can now have something that taste like peanut butter and it wont kill me. You guys have made me so happy. Thank you again.

DON'T ADD SUNBUTTER TO YOUR SWEET POTATO, YOU MIGHT LIKE IT ! ! DON'T SPREAD SUNBUTTER AND BANANA SLICES ON TOASTED WHOLE GRAIN BREAD or CINNAMON RAISIN TOAST, YOU MIGHT LIKE IT ! ! I LOVE SUNBUTTER! My favorite flavor is, NATURAL CRUNCH = love those little whole sunflower seeds !! SUNBUTTER is better tasting and much healthier than any "nut butter" !! SUNBUTTER also defies the characteristics of other "nut butters" as far as storage; just a few stirs and keep it in the refrigerator, it never hardens or separates making it easy to spread and add to your favorite SUNBUTTER recipes ! ! I know that SUNBUTTER is made in a peanut & tree nut free facility = no worries about contamination from any nuts ! ! IT'S YUMMY !! TJJ

I have completely swapped out regular peanut butter to SunButter! I am not allergic to peanuts but I love the rich, creamy taste! And with great availability at Target it is easily accessible. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Wonderful product. Tastes delicious! I developed a peanut allergy late in life and miss it. This puts a smile on my face : )

I picked up a jar of this unsuspecting that I would fall in love with it! It is delicious! It is nutritious, low on the glycemic index and I am going for more!

I am a life-long fan and consumer of peanut butter. However, we have not had any peanut/nut products in our home for 2 years. Our 4-year old daughter has a life threatening treenut and peanut allergy so our entire family has stopped buying/consuming peanut butter and nuts. We purchased our first jar of Sunbutter at Publix yesterday and I was pleasantly surprsed ... in fact I actually like it better than peanut butter. The flavor is amazing and I am looking forward to incorporating it into our daily routine! Thank you for this amazing alternative that actually tastes good.

I only recently heard of Sunbutter and was skeptical because I am not a huge fan of sunflower seeds (not the taste so much as how messy they are to eat). But when I was looking for a Paleo-friendly alternative to my beloved peanut butter, I saw this on the shelf and...WOW, it's delicious! It made a great batch of flourless Sunbutter cookies, and I admit to sneaking a spoonful or two straight out of the jar. Now I don't know what to do with this jar of almond butter I bought at the same time, I don't think I'll want to stray from Sunbutter any time soon.
