[Product Review] Mayver's Spreads

A selection of Mayver's Nut Butters are currently half price at Woolworths this week. I had been eyeing them off for some time and figure now was the perfect time to give them a try. 

So which ones did I choose?

Of the four on special I went with the Super Natural Crunchy Peanut Butter, the Original Super Spread and the Dark Chocolate Super Spread (because who can resist anything chocolate). 





The Crunchy Peanut Butter contains just peanuts with a pinch of salt - far healthier than most peanut butters you will find on the shelf next to Mayver's. 

This peanut butter is perfect for when I'm too lazy to mix up some peanut flour. Sometimes there's just no substitute for a good all-natural crunchy peanut butter, and this is no exception. 

That tiny bit of added salt (and it IS very little) really lifts the flavour of the peanuts and reminds me of traditional peanut butter. If you're trying to give up other peanut butter brands (I won't name names), give Mayver's a try for an easy transition.



The Original Super Spread has such a complex flavour profile. Upon first taste I get hit with peanut butter which soon develops into a taste of a wonderful blend of sesame seeds and other nuts. This nut and seed butter is quite unlike anything I've ever tried. 

Being so flavourful, it's great simply on a piece of bread straight out of the toaster, creating moutfuls of melty goodness.



Where do I start with the Chocolate Super Spread? Firstly, it's vegan which is a huge plus for any chocolate product. This stuff is dangerous but for all the right reasons. Super Spread plus chocolate = Super Delicious. 

Just trust me on this and grab a jar, or two...or three. 



The Original and Crunchy Peanut Butter are on sale for $2.49 and the Super Spreads are $3.99 each. If you're a fan, best to stock up before the deal ends midnight Tuesday. 

These four Mayver's products can be found in the Jam/Honey/Peanut Butter aisle of most Woolworths Supermarkets.

  1. The on line advert says "organic peanuts" but it doesn't say this anywhere on the jar, so I presume they aren't organic. Did they used to use organic peanuts but now they don't?

    1. Which online advertisement are you referring to?
      I never mentioned them being organic in this review and their website doesn't state that they are.
      If you have an issue, it might be best to ask them on their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/mayvers.products
