About Us

Who Are We?

Mixed Up Nut Butter is a Vermont-based specialty food business, specializing in craft nut butters, made from unique blends of tree nuts and other high-quality natural ingredients. 

Our story

Mixed Up Nut Butter was founded amidst my last semester at the University of Vermont in Spring 2020. I’ve developed a passion for cooking over the past few years, so when a local store stopped carrying my father’s favorite nut butter, I recreated it. My recreation ended up being better than the original. A combination of my entrepreneurial aspirations, my desire to make a living involving food, and a post-graduate job falling through due to COVID-19, resulted in the birth of Mixed Up Nut Butter.

The Original “Mixed Up Nut Butter” is what we call “The New Favorite” – a premium blend of almonds, cashews, pecans, and sea salt. Next is “The High Bar” – an almond, pecan, walnut nut butter that raised the bar and set a new standard for our nut butters. 

Each ingredient we use has intent, and each of our nut butters have a story, which you can read about on the side of each jar. I hope you can taste the difference in our nut butters, and that they lead you to live a healthier, more enjoyable life.

What Makes Us Unique

We craft nut butters from unique nut blends with non-traditional texture. Our nut butters aren’t crunchy or smooth. Their middle-grind results in a satisfying mouthfeel. Additionally, they’re dosed with a proper amount of sea salt to bring out the beautiful lurking flavors within the nuts we use. We are determined to create the best tasting mixed nut butters on earth using properly sourced and minimally processed ingredients.

A Note…

At Mixed Up Nut Butter, we don’t discriminate. Sure, have your nut butter with jam between two slices of bread (which we love), but there’s a whole world of flavor combinations out there! Don’t limit yourself. Replace any nut butter or tahini, with ours in any recipe. That means you can use it in baked goods, dressings, sauces, or paired with your favorite cheese and wine.
