Mighty Tastee! Since 1910
Stamped with the Made in the United States of America seal.
Cream-Nut is natural peanut butter made by the Koeze Company in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
The Cream-Nut story begins when Sibbele Koeze emigrated to America from the Netherlands in the 1880’s. He built upon his Old World commitment to handcrafted, artisanal food and in 1910 established a thriving produce business.
What Sibbele Koeze started with his dedication to quality, value, and service, remains the story of Koeze Company today. Sibbele’s son, Albertus, went to work for his father and soon after directed the Koeze Company’s entry in the manufacture of fine hand-crafted peanut butter. Now, more than eighty years later, Albertus’ grandson, Jeff, is still making the same heritage, all-natural peanut butter.
To make a vintage product, we use vintage machinery. Albertus would feel right at home with our classic peanut butter equipment. Though more costly to run and maintain, this machinery allows us to slow down the process and focus on the craftsmanship of Cream-Nut peanut butter.
Selected Virginia peanuts are carefully roasted to a rich dark color, then coarse ground to perfection. To insure attention to detail, we produce small batches, one at a time. We add nothing more than a pinch of salt. There are no artificial colors, preservatives, or sugar, and it’s never homogenized. The result is the best tasting, all-natural peanut butter available. Prized in West Michigan for generations, we’re proud to introduce Cream-Nut to a national audience.
While visiting Brooklyn, my homie Shane Welch, picked up a box of these and demanded that we try one right there on the spot. We were hanging out at a local bar that shall remain nameless for preservation. But with beers and vodka/sodas, these were an excellent treat.
Shane said that they were some of his favorites, but I had never had them before. And after having tried them, I enjoyed them quite a bit myself. They are like caramel turtles only better because it's made with natural peanut butter and not caramel.
If you can find these little gems, get them! I would like to try the peanut butter on it's own next.
Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate. The dark chocolate look slightly ashy, but they were much richer. I think I like them better.
