About Us

Who Are We?

Mixed Up Nut Butter is a Vermont based food startup, specializing in small batch mixed nut butters. We aim to spark novel food experiences among our customers by encouraging them to explore new flavors.

Our story

Mixed Up Nut Butter was founded amidst my last semester at UVM 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. And I might add, his nut butter was a bit of a splurge, but well worth it. After tasting my recreation for the first time, my father was blown away. It was better than his splurge-worthy nut butter. 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.

What Makes Us Unique

We craft nut butters from unique nut blends with non-traditional texture. We like to think of ourselves as the pioneers of a new nut butter texture: Chewy. 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 any baked goods, dressings, sauces, or paired with your favorite cheese and wine once the clock strikes 5. See our recipes page for more ideas!
