Staff Picks Seasonal Nut Butter Trio
At Big Spoon Roasters, we’re passionate about a few things—great food, preserving our planet, and perhaps most importantly, the good people behind it all. Lucky for us, our team is full of amazing individuals that make the magic happen every day, and we can’t think of any better way to share more about them than through their favorite nut butters.
Our 2023 Fall Staff Trio was curated by our Quality and Training Lead, Janet Talus! Working with our production team, Janet creates and prepares training materials to foster their growth within their roles as well as looking for opportunities to standardize and streamline processes. All of this helps foster our environment of dedication to high-quality, small-batch nut butters and bars made to highest possible standards. When you taste the care put into each jar or bar, Janet plays a vital part in that! As such, she’s so excited to share with you her three picks this season.
Janet’s Staff Picks Trio contains one 13oz jar of the following nut butters (her words about each in italics):
Maple Cinnamon Peanut and Pecan Butter
Maple Cinnamon is my go-to gift because it is universally adored and delicious!
Lemon Coconut Cashew Butter
Lemon Coconut is the most requested recipe in my house, and I love that it has a bright, citrusy flavor that I find addictive.
Crunchy Peanut Butter
My favorite part of our Crunchy Peanut Butter is the addition of whole Hubs Virginia-variety peanuts that we mix in. They’re extra crunchy and super craveable.
More about Janet:
Janet joined the Big Spoon Roasters team in September of 2022 after years of being a fan of our nut butters. In fact, she was known at her last company as “Peanut Butter Girl” for nearly always having a jar on her, eating straight from it with a spoon!
Born in Nashville and raised in Wilmington, NC, she spent several years before coming to Big Spoon Roasters at Spoonflower, a custom fabric design company. Besides having an affinity for companies with “Spoon” in the name, she also has an incredible ability to bring out the best in those around her. Her last role also involved training teams as the Director of Operations at Spoonflower before joining us as our Quality and Training Lead.
She says the best part of working at Big Spoon is the people she works with, especially the atmosphere of comradery and dedication they bring. The free jar of nut butter a week, though, is a huge plus!!
Janet brings a joyful energy to her work every day, and we are so grateful for how she makes work fun. Production team member Jenna said, “I wanna be Janet when I grow up!” and, “She’s kinda punk rock in a clean FDA-approved way.” She really is an amazing combination of playful and curious as well as detail-oriented and optimization-minded. What a magical combo indeed :)
