Cream-Nut, Gourmet Magazine, & Bon Appetit http://www.aitcharter.com/cream-nut-gourmet-magazine-bon-appetit/ http://www.aitcharter.com/cream-nut-gourmet-magazine-bon-appetit/#comments Tue, 08 Dec 2009 14:17:52 +0000 http://www.aitcharter.com/?p=85 We were all sad to see Gourmet Magazine cease publication this year.? They did a nice piece on Cream Nut Natural Peanut Butter for their web site.? Their “sister” publication seems to have taken an interest in us — Cream Nut is one of the items in Bon Appetit’s January giveaway.

Cream-Nut name declared “weird;” peanut butter declared “best.” http://www.aitcharter.com/cream-nut-name-declared-weird-peanut-butter-declared-best/ http://www.aitcharter.com/cream-nut-name-declared-weird-peanut-butter-declared-best/#comments Tue, 24 Nov 2009 16:35:09 +0000 http://www.aitcharter.com/?p=71 The blog “The Gastronomical Jess” has a post titled “The best peanut butter has the worst name.”? The blogger, Jess, writes about Cream-Nut:

I cannot decide if the weird name is just sheer hippie oblivion or a genius marketing strategy because I will admit, the reason I picked this up to begin with was because of the weird name.

Although we’ve owned the Cream-Nut brand since the 1920’s (here is a picture from the ‘teens), I don’t know where the name came from.? One clue that I’ve found is this post card, dated 1922:

Cream Nut Bread

On the left side of the postcard is a sign for “Cream-Nut Bread.”? I’ve also seen ads from that era, including one from an old Grand Rapids paper, advertising Cream-Nut Bread made locally.? I wonder if the name was licensed (or “borrowed”) from a bread brand?

As long as we taste the best, I’m OK with having the worst name.

Why Self-Ground Peanut Butter Probably Isn’t Fresh http://www.aitcharter.com/why-self-ground-peanut-butter-probably-isnt-fresh/ http://www.aitcharter.com/why-self-ground-peanut-butter-probably-isnt-fresh/#respond Mon, 19 Oct 2009 10:04:33 +0000 http://www.aitcharter.com/?p=45 Jeff Koeze blogs about why people who grind their own peanut butter aren’t getting “fresh” peanut butter.? The freshness of peanut butter doesn’t depend on how recently the peanuts were ground, it depends on how soon they are ground after being roasted.? Read more here.
