Salt flakes are often added to the treat to kick it and make it stand out. By the way, this cookie is good for your health. you can consume it.

The Origins and Evolution of Nutter Butter

Let’s talk a bit about the brand’s history! This cookie company was established in 1969 and is held by The North American Biscuit Company commonly known as Nabisco. But no one knows who invented the peanut-shaped, dual-sided waffle pattern cookie design.

William Turnier, the former design engineer of Nabisco, is partly responsible for developing the signature look of waffle-pattern cookies. 

But Nabisco says it’s purely fictitious to accredit any individual for creating the unique design of cookies as it’s more of a team effort. Thus, the brand’s origins are in utter mystery right now! 

Those of you who grew up watching its commercials on TV may remember Nabisco’s infamous cartoons from the 1970s. A mascot from the brand offers cookies to kids on the playground in the commercials. (Watch it on YouTube). 

The brand launched its cookie-inspired cereal line in December 2017 by Post Consumer Brands. Then, cookie-twist doughnuts were released in October 2018 by Krispy Kreme. Following this, chocolate fudge-covered cookies also arrived in January 2019. 

7-Eleven began offering their limited edition lattes and doughnuts in 2019. During the same period, these cookies flavored milkshakes and Oreo-flavored ice creams at A&W Restaurants. In addition to other products, it was noted that cookies contributed to Mondelez’s sales growth throughout the year, even though it is one of their smaller brands.

How Popular is Nutter Butter?

This is a ‘Peanut spread Lover’s Cookie’ still famous among them. Although not all of its offerings are vegan, you can track down its popularity when one of the popular portals, Veg News, mentions this brand.

(Read the blog here!) According to the U.S. consumer survey 2020, as calculated by Statista, about 17.24 consumers have eaten 1-3 packages of these cookies within any span of 30 days. 

Their strong ties with blood donors might be the next factor behind their prominence. Besides the vending machines, you’ll surely find packages of Nutter Butter cookies at blood donation sites anywhere in America.

It even got a strong backlash from donors when cookie-freebies ended in the 1990s. 

Nabisco stopped supplying these cookies to the Red Cross after they mentioned they couldn’t afford them. Consequently, Nabisco had to face the negative PR as well. So, the company ultimately decided to offer these cookies freely to donation centers. 

‘Are you listening?’ is what their Instagram bio screams! So, the brand also has a quite strong presence on social media. Now, let’s talk about what’s more on ground zero! Nutter Butter are expensive cookies and might not be the best bang for your buck.

Yes, you heard it right—a package of 16oz. will cost you probably $4.68. That’s a lot if we compare it with certain other competitive brands.

Despite their premium price tag, these cookies captivate the hearts (and taste buds) of a dedicated following who recognize and savor their unparalleled richness. The exquisite blend of nutty goodness encased in each cookie is a symphony of flavors that transcends cost boundaries for some.
