Our Review Factors
What were the parameters we set while reviewing The Fresh Needs Crunchy Peanut Butter?
The overall nutrition quotient was a significant parameter. We also gauged the flavor and texture of this nut butter.
Peanut butter has a naturally nutty but sweet and salty taste. This is specifically for unflavored variants of peanut butter. If it tastes bitter or rancid, chances are that it has gone bad.
How is the balance between jaggery, peanuts and salt? Do the peanuts taste fresh? Are they roasted?
We were expecting a smooth peanut butter with medium-sized peanut bits.
Were the bits crunchy or had they turned soggy, with a soft bite? Are the crunchy bits ample or added scarcely?
Since the USP of this brand is the manufacturing date, freshness and shelf life, we put those under the microscope as well.
