I’m back like The Terminator. Which ones of you couldn’t care less?
This post is about my favourite spreads, ever.
They’re also very underrated.
You won’t hear of “Biscoff” or “Nutella”. Not that they’re bad, because they’re delicious – I just, I’m trying to open your eyes to different spreads (and increase my blog’s SEO & algorithm).
Right so, I will be reviewing a nut butter, a chocolate spread and a vegan alternative to honey (made of molasses).
My favourite nut butter spread
First up, the nut butter.
I’m a lover of the chunky, my taste in peanut butter is no different.
ManiLife is absolutely my new favourite. I actually stopped buying WholeEarth when I stumbled across this bad boy, and I haven’t looked back.
It is organic, and palm-oil free. Its rich, deep roasted flavour is just part of what makes it so delicious. The only downside, if any, is that it’s really thick in consistency. But, that’s to be expected of a chunky peanut butter. I feel like this peanut butter tastes like the real thing, as in: if you were to make it at home. This is code for: there are no artificial flavourings or weird chemicals.
Next up, it’s the chocolate spread…
My favourite chocolate spread
The chocolate spread of my choice is SEGGIANO.
This one also comes in a smooth form, and I love that one too.
My favourite thing about this is that I can taste the mixture of toasted hazelnut pieces and rich milk chocolate. Again, like ManiLife’s nut butter, this spread is free of palm-oil.
It’s easily spread on brioche, toast or bread – versatile. The downside is its consistency is pretty liquidy… But, that’s to be expected, especially with it being organic.
SEGGIANO’s chocolate spreads are bae…
Finally, let’s discuss the honey alternative that I’ve recently discovered… *drum roll please*
My favourite honey spread
Vegan Honea – Chilli
Unarguably the most savoury honey you will taste, and one of the best.
It’s up there with Manuka and Pyrenees. I like it because it’s different, with a savoury chilli kick.
What’s more, it’s full of good gut-bacteria (probiotics). Who doesn’t love good gut bacteria!?
My final thoughts on this spread
For something that’s made from molasses, I actually love it. It doesn’t taste of it at all…
I’d go as far as to say, that if you took the contents out of the jar and put it in another jar and got a honey connoisseur to taste it blindfolded, I doubt they’d be able to tell the difference.
Still tastes sweet, with a chilli kick. I mean, chilli chocolate and salted-caramel are ‘a thing’ so what’s a savoury honey in the grand scheme of things? (Vegan Honea also has a Lavender honey-alternative that I can’t wait to try.)
Let me know if you have tried any of these spreads mentioned, or are going to.
