Made using real peanuts, Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey is as crazy as it sounds. It’s the answer of “why not” when someone asks, “why?” With its surprising sweetness, smooth finish, and obvious peanut butter flavor, this American whiskey proudly bucks convention as the black sheep of the whiskey aisle. We sat down with Brittany Yeng, co-founder of Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey, to find out how her husband’s obsession with peanut butter led to the first-ever peanut butter whiskey, and how it’s turning skeptics into converts and welcoming those who go against the norm.
According to Mintel data, new peanut product introductions increased five percent from Q4 2017 to Q3 2018. Sixty percent of new peanut product introductions are classified as snacks, and the snack category continues to maintain growth and innovation for peanuts with a 28% increase.
Top growing package claims for new peanut product introductions over this period included ease of use, microwaveable, time/speed and functional-cardiovascular. These claims align with consumer demands for food that's convenient and supports health.
No longer should parents withhold the introduction of peanut foods from their infants until toddlerhood. In fact, new guidelines from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) now recommend feeding peanut foods to infants as early as 4 to 6 months of age, depending on their risk for allergies, to prevent peanut allergy. Dr. Ron Sunog, is a pediatrician who helped develop Puffworks® baby. We sat down with him to find out more about the new guidelines, and how this product can help make early introduction easier.
It’s no secret that Americans love peanuts (at least not to us). What you may not realize is that alternative milks and plant-based proteins have changed the way we shop. If you’re already a fan of alternative milks, you know they’re not all the same – especially when it comes to protein content. More than ever, consumers are demanding products that compare favorably with cow’s milk on that front.
New to the alternative milk market is Elmhurst’s Cleanest Protein Shake on the Planet™ - Chocolate Peanut - a new ready-to-serve beverage packed with 20 grams of plant-based protein from peanuts. The protein in peanuts promote muscle recovery – making this a great post-workout drink option.
We challenged registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) across the country to try out one of our brand-new peanut milk recipes, the Creamy Dreamy Peanut Milk Smoothie, and are so impressed with their creative renditions. There’s bound to be one that makes your mouth water!
New peanut products in the dairy category have spiked since the start of 2018. In both the dairy milk and alternative milk spaces, product introductions with peanut ingredients are up 200%, according to data from Mintel. New breakfast cereals with peanuts have increased 50%.
As someone who loves efficiency, if I can find a product that works fabulously as a culinary ingredient and a stellar source of nutrition, it’s love at first sight. As the first peanut milk ever to hit the market, Elmhurst’s Milked Peanuts is a powerful plant-based beverage that serves up six grams of protein per cup, with a peanut lover’s dream taste.
With spring in full bloom and summer right around the corner, there’s no better time to dream up a new smoothie recipe. And fortunately, this year we have the most delicious new addition to your afternoon pick-me-up or breakfast drink – peanut milk!
