Two new nut butters with a chocalety twist are now available Do you want all the nutritional benefits of a nut butter, whilst satisfying a sweet tooth?

Meridian have launched their new Cocoa with Peanut and Cocoa with Hazelnut butters.

Delivering all the deliciously nutty taste of roasted peanuts and hazelnuts, with the decadent taste of pure, unadulterated cocoa, it’s simply lip-smacking indulgence at its finest.

There are no nasties in Meridian’s nut butters; there’s no Palm Oil, refined sugar or additives, and it’s the stripped back, pure goodness approach to healthy eating that’s struck a chord with sports and fitness enthusiasts.

The new Meridian nut butters offer protein sourced naturally from the ingredients with 74% peanut in Cocoa & Peanut and 75% hazelnut in Cocoa & Hazelnut, blended withcocoa powder, pure coconut and a dash of honey. Offering two dark, chocolatey treats that are perfect for spreading on your favourite snack; or let’s be real, eating with a spoon.

James Haskell, England Rugby Player and Meridian Ambassador, comments: “I’m a huge fan of these new nut butters; they’re a great source of natural protein and are perfect for incorporating into healthy recipes. As an athlete, if you ask me what my guilty treat would be I’d say chocolate, but with these new Meridian products, you get the best of both worlds – all the flavour and taste without any of the bad stuff. There’s no getting away from the fact I am a big guy and I eat a lot of food all through the day and I love that I can incorporate the new cocoa range into snacks before and after training.”

Protein has always been an integral part of any runner as a post-recovery snack, a factor which has driven the demand for high protein products.  Meridian’s aim is to continue to innovate and create new products that provide naturally sourced protein, including tasty nut butters that can be made into on-the-go convenient snacks for those health-conscious consumers.

However you choose to enjoy them, these nut butters are a dream come true for those who love a sophisticated chocolate taste, with a nutty twist.
