Pic's Peanut Butter

Twenty years ago while sailing in the Bay of Islands, Pic rowed over to an American mate’s yacht for breakfast.  Rick made toast, and pulled out a jar of American “health style” peanut butter.  Now Pic knew that peanut butter was pretty damn healthy already, so wondered what these yanks had done to make it better.

What they had done was reduce the sugar!  Pic was stunned, in those days no kiwi peanut butter contained sugar, but Pic could see the writing on the wall.

And so it came to pass, Pic first discovered sugar in his favourite peanut butter in 2007.  Then he became aware that not only were they adding sugar, but they were chucking emulsifiers, antioxidants and litres of unspecified hydrogenated oils in there as well.

Pic swung into action, bought ten kilos of peanuts and started roasting and grinding away in his Nelson garage.  And it was YUMMY.  Roll forward to 2013 and Pic’s is now the most popular peanut butter in New Zealand, and fast gaining popularity worldwide.

Pic’s Peanut Butter contains nothing but Hi-Oleic Aussie peanuts and (a little) salt.  Pic also makes an unsalted version.  Pic’s contains no added oils, emulsifiers, preservatives or sugar.  The product is seriously good with a rich roasted peanut taste. 

Pic’s is recommended by nutritionists and fitness coaches as a healthy, high protein, sustained energy source.  Remarkably popular with children, Pic’s is the natural choice as a nutritious alternative to butter and sugary spreads.

Pic’s don’t have customers, they have fans.  And a growing number of serious addicts worldwide.
