Peanut Free WOWBUTTER Review

By special request from one of our subscribers, I bought this product for a review today. Janet has a child who is a very picky eater, who also loves peanut butter despite being allergic to it. Being as WOWBUTTER does contain a small amount of cane sugar, I normally would not touch it. But in the interest of trying to help one of our faithful readers here goes.

The folks at WOWBUTTER in their advertisement state this product has a taste and texture that consumers know and love. I am going to have to disagree with them on this point. This statement is about as off point as many vegetarian hamburgers allegedly tasting like the real thing. They might taste good, I actually like many of them as something different. But with that being said, there are no vegetarian hamburgers on the market that actually taste exactly like beef.

WOWBUTTER has a somewhat creamy texture, however it is a little stiffer than actual peanut butter. The taste however, is nothing that comes even remotely close to the taste of peanuts. It does not even taste like poor quality, cheap peanut butter. WOWBUTTER tastes like soy. While it is not particularly a bad flavor to me, it does not fill the bill as a peanut butter replacement.

But for the added cane sugar. WOWBUTTER is nutritionally sound. From this standpoint you cannot go wrong. One aspect I do like about the nutrition is that with it being made of soy, you will get a full profile of all nine essential amino acids which our bodies require for healing and replacement of all of tissues. However, being as this product does contain added cane sugar, there is no way I am going to recommend it to anyone. If you like it, then go ahead and enjoy it. Just do not expect it to taste like actual peanut butter.

    The review on wowbutter is good but for the fact that if a person is allergic to peanuts they would not know what peanut butter tastes like and as such wowbutter would be either something they like or don’t like. I am not allergic but my grandson that is 4 is allergic to all dairy as well as peanuts and eggs and to find foods he can eat is a challenge so I bought the wowbutter so I have it on hand when he visits. It is a great product.

      Hi Angie, thank you for reading and commenting. This is a good product, but it wasn’t one I enjoyed. That being said, everyone has different tastes. If your grandson enjoys it, by all means continue buying it for him. Besides not caring for the taste too much, the sugar it contains is my biggest issue. We promote a sugar free lifestyle here for healthy weight loss and weight management.

    True the WOW Butter does not taste exactly like peanut butter. However, it is very good and I liked it. My only question is does it require refrigeration after opening. This is now my go to instead of peanut butter.

      Hi Annie, thank you for reading and commenting. I’m glad you enjoy the WOW Butter, it is nutritionally sound. I usually write in my reviews to not base my thoughts on the flavor of a product whether you will like it or not. We all have our own unique taste. My only gripe about this product was in it being marketed as tasting like peanut butter. I don’t remember if WOW Butter required refrigeration or not, let us know when you find out.
