Hank's Protein Plus Peanut Spreads
HANKS PROTEIN PLUS Spreads are the original, local Rhode Island High Protein Spread. HANK’S PROTEIN PLUS is packed with 10 grams of protein, Almond and Vegan have 11 grams, and 6-8 carbs with vegan containing 4 grams.
HANKS PROTEIN PLUS Spread is made with natural products, starting with a high quality split toasted / roasted blend of peanuts / almonds. We then add a high quality Whey Concentrate and Whey Isolate (Pea protein and Soy Isolate for vegan) combination to all our flavors.
HANKS PROTEIN PLUS does not add oil to the product like the competition does. Instead a formula was created that allows the natural nut oils to diffuse into the blend of nuts and protein. This translates into NO residual oil that sits on top of our product unlike the other 2 protein butter products out on the market. See for yourself…No other high protein spread uses this blend… Compare our product. You will select HANKS PROTEIN PLUS spread every time!
HANKS HIGH PROTEIN PLUS SPREAD is locally made product right here in Rhode Island and was originally intended for a few diabetic clients that I worked with on a nutritional level who needed more protein but without the junk that is in regular store bought peanut butter. It has evolved into a staple with athletes young and old because of its elevated levels of Protein (10 grams of protein per serving), low sugar, unique consistency and great taste. And finally it has become a constant in the daily diet of those who exercise/strength train on a regular basis. It is safe for children and is safe right up to the day of your competition. (Banana Vanilla Crumble, White Chocolate Pretzel and Chocolate Chip have 1 gram of sugar per 2 Tablespoons)
Our plain or natural flavor high protein nut spread is the first of the three original spreads ever created by Hank’s.
This spread laid the foundation some years ago and is the base in recipe formulation for all of the others today. Ironically our plain flavor nut spread really isn’t plain at all. We have added a twist; a distinct flavoring system with a vanilla base, combining whey isolate and whey concentrate proteins…. and that’s what separates our “plain” or natural flavor from all other nut butters. And of course, so does the 10 grams of protein. However it is the way in which the ingredients are prepared, blended and mixed, making a final product that distances itself from all of the others. All you need to do is compare for yourself. You will immediately conclude that there is nothing “plain” about our plain high protein nut spread.
BANANA VANILLA CRUMBLE
What would a nut butter product be without something with a banana flare? Hank’s just would not be complete!! So about a year ago I thought to reintroduce something banana. Some time ago we did have a banana high protein nut spread, however at the time, it always lagged behind the others.
There is no lack of interest this time around however. Our NEW banana spread is topped with about one ounce of vanilla crumbles….as with Snickerdoodle’s vanilla and cinnamon, our banana vanilla crumble offers the perfect fusion of two distinct flavors, banana and vanilla. And as with Coconut, you don’t need to be a lover of Banana to appreciate what this high protein spread has to offer.
If you haven’t tried this one yet because you aren’t crazy about banana, you really need to try our version of what a banana nut spread should taste like. If the flavor doesn’t get you our unique texture and consistency will. This is not a Gluten Free flavor.
If you are familiar with our number one high protein product, Chocolate Chip, then you may also be familiar with our second most popular flavor, Snickerdoodle. Solely based on popularity, Chocolate Chip and Snickerdoodle have been one and two respectively in popularity since the very beginning.
Snickerdoodle is a specific blend of vanilla and cinnamon flavors and not pieces of snickers bars like some people would hope!!! As the mixing process begins, cinnamon is added first to ensure a proper coating onto the entire 50 pounds of nut stock. Once that is complete, our protein is added in along with Stevia, flax, salt. In order to avoid clumping and settling of the heavier ingredients, our mixing and blending process for all flavors takes approximately 5 minutes. This may seem like a long time but it guarantees an even blend of every ingredient.
So you may be surprised that there are no snicker bar pieces in this nut butter. However you won’t be disappointed in what you are taste……a perfectly blended fusion of cinnamon and vanilla!!
I have always been of the opinion that one needs to be a coconut lover in order to buy anything with a coconut taste. Interestingly our coconut high protein spread appeals to just about everyone. Using a flavoring system with a natural coconut base added to our whey isolate and concentrate blend of protein, this spread is topped with an ounce of a desiccated coconut. This type of coconut is 100% natural and contains minimal amounts of only one preservative.
Our coconut does not contain poly-propylene glycol; a common coconut preservative and a chemical used in the manufacturing of anti-freeze. So whether or not you’re a lover of coconut you are going to love the versatility of this spread. It is not overpowering and it is not super sweet. It is just right!
