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.
