Peanut butter is one those foods where all restraint just goes out of the window.
Confronted with a tub of peanut butter and a spoon, I’ll inevitably show the same level of self-control as a Premier League footballer on a stag weekend in Ibiza with a chemically-assisted erection.
The problem with this, of course, is that traditional nut butters have a tonne of added sugar and salt, no to mention dodgy stabilisers, preservatives and other nasties, meaning devouring a tub in one sitting will spell trouble for your waist line.
This is where Whey More Nuts from Go Nutrition enters the picture…
Whey More Nuts is a healthy peanut butter combining all-natural ingredients and added protein.
It comes in a 500g tub which costs £9.49 and is currently available in four flavours: ‘Chocolate Peanut’, ‘Chocolate Coconut’, ‘Cinnamon Spice’ and ‘Chocolate Honeycomb Crunch’.
This review will focus on the Chocolate Honeycomb Crunch flavour, which is fairly recent addition to the GN product line.
The typical nutritional values, per 100g, of the Chocolate Honeycomb Crunch nut butter are as follows:
|Carbs (of which sugar)||15g (5g)|
|Fat (of which saturates)||37g (3g)|
NB: there is a little nutritional variance between flavours, but this is only very minor.
Overall, these macros are pretty exceptional for a nut butter.
A typical supermarket peanut butter, such as Sun-Pat, will have around 25% protein content, where as Whey More Nuts boasts roughly 50%.
In addition, to use the same comparison, Whey More Nuts also provides roughly 92% less salt, 29% less sugar, 69% less sat fats, and 7% less calories than your average supermarket brand.
The additional protein comes from whey isolate, so no skimping on ingredients there.
As well as providing all the vitamins, minerals and healthy fats associated with nuts, Whey More Nuts is also free from the added sugars, E-numbers and high salt content found in regular peanut butter.
Go Nutrition’s nut butter uses on xylitol, a 100% natural sweetener with no known toxicity to humans, and other natural ingredients for flavouring, such as cocoa.
So the ingredients and macros are great – but, more importantly, how does it taste?
Well, once again, top marks!
The chocolate hazelnut flavour of Whey More Nuts tastes just like Nutella.
This is pretty remarkable seeing as Nutella has a whopping 988% higher sugar content.
I’ve tried the ‘Chocolate Peanut’ flavour of Whey More Nuts in the past and wasn’t bowled over (it was fairly bland and tasteless), but this latest flavour is a marked improvement.
The pieces honeycomb crunch, in particular, are absolutely delicious, just like little bits of a Crunchie bar.
So, how to eat it?
Well Whey More Nuts makes a delicious and nutrient-dense addition to rice cakes, oats or wholemeal bread, but, for me, it tastes best on its own.
Get a spoon and just dive in!
As Whey More Nuts is super-high in protein and other important nutrients – and free from the added junk found in traditional nut butters – it’s going to be an excellent addition to your diet in terms of achieving muscle gain.
The high calorie content, in particular, makes it an excellent choice for those looking to add mass.
Conversely, it goes without saying that if you’re in a calorie deficit or looking to get shredded you should probably steer well clear of this stuff.
Especially as it’s so ridiculously moreish you’ll find it hard to stop going back for more.
At almost a tenner for just 500g, Whey More Nuts is certainly on the pricey side.
This is, of course, down to the excellent quality of the ingredients, but with a standard tub of Go Nutrition natural peanut butter retailing at £6.49 for a kilo, this does make Whey More Nuts something of a luxury.
Go Nutrition’s Whey More Nuts (Chocolate Honeycomb Crunch) is a truly delicious high-protein nut butter which combines superb macros with high-quality natural ingredients.
This would be a five-star review if it wasn’t for the relatively high price tag, which makes it more of a treat than a must-have product.
