Yumello’s delicious, vegan nut spreads are award-winners. The peanut butter is made with 95.5% high-oleic peanuts, 4% Argan oil and a sprinkling of sea salt and that’s it — no refined sugar or palm oil. Our favourite was the crunchy, salted date peanut butter with its punchy, sharp saltiness and a sweet kick.
