Do you like the idea of using healthier nut butters in your running nutrition but actually like the taste of a certain chocolate spread too much? Help may be at hand as Meridian Foods has launched their new Cocoa & Peanut and Cocoa & 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 with cocoa 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.

Alex Danson MBE, GB Olympic Hockey gold medallist and Meridian Ambassador, says: “If like me you care about what you eat, but have a bit of a sweet tooth, then these new Meridian Cocoa Nut Butters are perfect for you. As an athlete, if you ask me what my guilty treat would be I’d say chocolate, but with these new healthy cocoa products, you get the best of both worlds – all the flavour and taste without any of the bad stuff. They can be incorporated into a variety of healthy recipes and snacks, ideal for maintaining energy levels throughout the day thanks to the natural protein, while satisfying those sugar cravings!”
Protein has always been an integral part of any fitness enthusiast’s diet for accruing muscle mass, 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.
The new Cocoa Nut Butters can be added to a range of snacks and drinks including oaty protein balls, banana muffins, porridge and berry smoothies to make deliciously, healthy treats. 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.
Meridian’s Cocoa & Peanut and Cocoa & Hazelnut Butters will be available to buy in Tesco, Ocado and independent health food retailers nationwide from May onwards priced £2.79 and £3.99 respectively (RSP). 
The new nut butters join an already flavoursome range which includes Peanut, Cashew, Almond, Coconut & Peanut, Coconut & Almond, Peanut Butter with Seeds, Hazelnut, Pecan, Macadamia and Brazil. 
Run247 will be trying some of Meridian’s nut butter recipes during the next couple of weeks and reporting back on their tastiness and suitability for use before, during and after a run.
