Stowe’s Chris Kaiser hopes his peanut butter will become the next big Vermont product, a la Ben & Jerry’s, Cabot cheese, and others. His idea is to make a bunch of different kinds of great tasting, organic, and healthy nut butters, said the Stowe Reporter. Chris is a one-man operation – literally – except for his six-year-old daughter, Regan, who helps with flavor creations and his taste-tester friends. Some of his flavors include Mad River Mojo (almond and peanut mix blended with honey, chocolate, berries); Monkey Business (peanut butter with raisins, blended with a hint of banana); and Avalanche (peanut butter blended with white chocolate). Prices range from $4.99 -$ 7.99. He also has the standard creamy and chunky flavors for those with old-fashioned taste buds. Now we’re hungry.
