I was excited to try the Split Nutrition packs. They are small, easy-to-use variations of peanut butter and jelly.
Almond butter and dark chocolate?
Cashew butter and sour cherry?
Almond butter and strawberry jelly?
They make it easy to use with (as the name suggests) split packaging and a container for each flavor. You can eat them on their own or as a topping.
About the Brand Split Nutrition:
Split Nutrition was founded in 2017 on a small paper napkin. They wanted to create a wholesome snack with real food on the go. Dr. Phil Gogliam, an elite performance nutritionist, recommended pairing good fats with simple carbohydrates for maximum energy. Together with Jeff Mahin, an accomplished chef, restaurateur, and bicycle enthusiast, they created Split Nutrition.
About Split Nutrition Products:
It’s interesting, I don’t know if I’ve ever had a brand and the product be the same name. There are a bunch of different Split Nutrition flavors depending on your mood.
What exactly is Split Nutrition?
Split Nutrition has two different sides: an almond/nut butter side and a fruit or chocolate side. Imagine having a peanut butter and jelly sandwich without the bread. Keep in mind, I’m not saying not to have bread and you can add them to your sandwich or bagel if you want. In fact, that is one of my favorite things to do so you don’t have to worry about soggy bread. You can add the toppings to whatever you want or eat them on the go for a quick, portable, and easy snack.
What makes Split Nutrition Different:
- No artificial ingredients or preservatives.
- Non-GMO, no added oils, salts, fillers, and naturally gluten-free.
- Real Ingredients: real fruits, organic cane sugar, and no additives.
- Snack at home: It contains pure nut butter and a real fruit spread in a portion-controlled snack.
Honestly, I wasn’t sure where Split Nutrition would fit in my life. Would it be a work snack? Fuel for running or hiking? Ultimately, I decided it’s an excellent snack for hiking or work. I’m not going to have it mid-road run as I prefer something with more carbohydrates for running.
I first tried Split Nutrition on a hike. I brought bagels and used the Split Nutrition as the topping. I was happy with how easy and portable it was. (who knew not packing an entire jar of peanut butter on a hike is nice?). I’ve since used them for work as well. Heck, I’ve even eaten just the Split Nutrition and been happy. Sometimes I get hungry and need an extra snack to pick me up. Split Nutrition is a great idea and an interesting concept. There really isn’t a lot on the market that is similar. I guess you could argue the portable peanut butter packages or Muir Energy Gels are also kind of close.
I am sure there are trail runners who love using them for longer runs and races, and I can see them being used a lot there.
My favorite flavors are nut butter and chocolate. I am not a huge jelly fan so I usually snack on dark chocolate and almond butter. I have now tried most of the flavors and haven’t been disappointed with any. The flavor I do really want to try is the cashew butter and sour cherry, it’s such a fun and unqiue combo.
Cost: 30 pack for $55.50 or 10 pack $24.95
They average about the exact cost of regular bar types of snacks. Obviously, the more you buy, the cheaper they are.
Split Nutrition Conclusion:
I am a fan of Split Nutrition and will continue using them for work and hikes and occasionally work snacks (although you probably know I’m a huge beef jerky fan for work snacks HA). I am not the only one who enjoys them because they continue to be sold out on their website! They do have options to purchase on Amazon too. Hopefully, they will be able to make more soon and restock their website.
