Two new peanut butters are joining the Mayver’s portfolio of products, with its Skin On and Extra Crunchy varieties expanding the extensive range. 

Mayver’s Skin On Peanut Butter keeps the peanut skin on to add 3.3g of fibre in each 20g serving of peanut butter, while Mayver’s Extra Chrunch Peanut Butter has 60 per cent more crunch, “designed to create a better mouth feel when chomping into a sandwich, dipping into a satay or eating on its own,” says Mayver’s owner Paul Raff.

“Our family has been hard at work taste testing and we’re thrilled they’re finally ready for other families to start enjoying too,” he said.

“Mayver’s Skin On Peanut Butter has a slightly more earthy texture and flavour, with visible brown flecks of peanut skin blended throughout and plenty of ‘hidden’ fibre, perfect for sneaking into kids' diets.”

Mayver’s Skin On and Extra Crunchy peanut butters are available now at Woolworths, Australia-wide and will be available in Coles Australia-wide from October.
