FitNuts: Healthy Delivery-Only Nut Butters in Cairo
Fit Cairenes won’t let the health craze die anytime soon, we can assure you, and the market for guilt-free snacks is ever expanding in the city. FitNuts is one of the latest brands offering healthy treats and their new take on (pe)nut butters.
We’ve always known nothing but the conventional nut butters sold at supermarkets and so the concept of all-natural, just plain crushed nuts intrigued us into ringing them up to inquire about their selection and prices.
FitNuts offers seven different types of nut butters, each for a set price per jar, including Peanut Butter (2 LE), Almond (35LE), Hazelnut (35LE), Cinnamon Raisin Almond (40LE), Cinnamon Raisin Peanut (40LE), Chocolate Peanut (40LE) and Chocolate Hazelnut (50LE).
We asked them what the butters are sweetened with and, much to our surprise and delight, the answer was nothing. Excited by the prospect of indulging in some tasty goodies without having to worry too much about consuming lots of sugar, we placed our order right away.
FitNuts offers a delivery service that delivers the order, previously made over Whatsapp, right to your doorstep for an additional 10LE, or you can just pick it up from their headquarters in Dokki. Upon receiving our order just a couple of days after placing it, we couldn’t wait to experiment with the butters. They were packaged in medium-sized jars, decorated with colourful stickers which, fortunately, stated all their nutritional information.
The Peanut Butter tasted totally different than the store-bought ones we’re used to, but in a good way; you could actually taste the strong raw flavour of peanuts without it being camouflaged by added oils and sugar. The Almond butter was decadent yet somehow light, probably due to the usually more subtle flavour Almonds carry in comparison to other nuts. The true star of the bunch, however, was definitely the Chocolate Hazelnut Butter, which we’re considering our official guilt-free dessert from now on. It’s made with chocolate whey protein powder, which definitely adds to its nutritional benefits, and it tastes almost too good for something that healthy.
All in all, we are definitely willing to swear off our unhealthy ways if a healthy diet contains treats that are as delicious as FitNuts’ butters. Sure they’re not as sweet in taste as the the usual, but the strong taste of the nuts themselves and the health benefits the butters carry make up for the lack of sweetness. The service they offer is also quite stellar, with our order being ready on time and their all-around prompt and informative replies to our inquiries.
