Raw Super Seed Spread


I have a nut allergy and the last time I tried peanut butter I was about 3 years old and that's when we discovered my allergy (apparently I really loved it as well which is annoying). So I can't remember what peanut butter tastes like and i've always wanted something that's an equivalent for me to chuck on some toast when i'm feeling peckish. Then I found they do different types of nut/seed spreads, so I thought why not give them a try.

This is my first try of seed spread so i'm not going to base my love/hate on the first product I try, especially as this product is primarily a healthy spread.

I tried this super seed spread on some toast and my first thought was that it tasted really strong of pumpkin seeds, far more than I expected. This spread does have other seeds in it but the pumpkin flavor really overpowers the rest and because of that it's quite bitter. After reading the ingredients I noticed the reason it is probably so bitter is because it doesn't contain any salt, sugar or butter. I wasn't expecting it to have a lot because it's a healthy spread but I didn't realise it didn't have any. So I put a bit of honey on top to cover the bitter flavor a bit more and it definitely helped but I just don't think it's for me.

But if you love the taste of pumpkin seeds then this could be for you! You can find it in your local Holland and Barrett for £3.35 or online here.

  1. I don't like peanuts so I know what you mean! This sounds interesting but I'm not a big seed lover either. I need to just go for low fat cream cheese for my toast needs! x

    1. I'm pretty sure if you're not a seed fan you won't like this then, it's very strong! I'm a seed fan and even I was a bit taken back. But I agree, cream cheese on toast is a great choice ;) but then again any type of cheese on toast makes me happy!
