From Kitchen Roots to National Gourmet Nut Butter Brand, Betsy’s Best Expands Into Nearly 2,100 Stores in 35 States

Created by Registered Dietitian and former Miss Indiana Betsy Opyt, Betsy’s Best® Gourmet Nut and Seed Butters are a new driving force in the specialty nut butter category, proving that unique, delicious flavors, superfood ingredients and grown-up tastes are what’s hot in today’s market.

Naples, FL (January 24, 2017) — Betsy’s Best®, maker of nutritious and delicious, Non-GMO, Gourmet Nut and Seed Butters, including Peanut Butter, Almond Butter, Cashew Butter, and Sunflower Seed Butter, has had an amazing year. Founded by Registered Dietitian and certified diabetes educator Betsy Opyt, the company has expanded from 58 stores at the beginning of 2016 to nearly 2,100 stores in 35 states today. 

From humble roots, when Betsy first created her unique, flavorful recipes in her home kitchen and began selling jars of Betsy’s Best at a local farmers market in Naples, FL, consumers now can find Betsy’s Best Gourmet Nut and Seed Butters in supermarkets and natural foods stores throughout the Southeast, Midwest and Western United States, including Kroger, Whole Foods Market (Florida), Bristol Farms, Ingles Markets, Harris Teeter and other leading grocers as the brand continues its national expansion.

“The phenomenal growth the brand has experienced can be chalked up to a growing demand for healthier and tastier nut butters made with unique, whole food ingredients, along with consumers who are increasingly drawn to more sophisticated flavors,” says Betsy Opyt, President and CEO.

Above and Beyond Nuts

Frustrated herself by the lack of healthy, good-tasting nut butters that her daughter could enjoy, Betsy started creating her own peanut butter in her kitchen with a blender, a mission and a host of wholesome gourmet ingredients. The result was four delicious recipes packed with good-for-you superfoods and free from partially hydrogenated soybean oil, high fructose corn syrup and palm oil. All Betsy’s Best Gourmet Nut and Seed Butters are Non-GMO Project Verified.

Betsy’s Best blends its Gourmet Peanut Butter, Seed Butter, and Almond Butter with chia seeds, a nutritious superfood, organic honey, cinnamon, and Himalayan pink salt, among other natural ingredients. Its hard-to-resist Gourmet Cashew Butter, also blended with chia seeds, features cardamom, giving it an unsurpassed savory flavor.

“We have found that using grown-up flavors appeals to kids and adults alike,” says company founder Betsy Opyt. “Our customer feedback shows that we aren’t compromising taste for health and that’s one of the reasons why I think we are gaining so much momentum.”

Betsy’s Best Gourmet Almond Butter was recognized in October 2016 as the first recipient of the ChefsBest Quality in Craft Award in a blind taste test by an expert panel of Certified Master Tasters.

Let’s Go Kroger-ing with Betsy’s Best

Let’s Go Kroger-ing with Betsy’s Best

Growing up in a small Indiana town, I remember shopping at the local Kroger. My sister and I tagged along behind our mom as she did her weekly shopping, stopping to talk to all the neighbors and friends along the way. It was more than a grocery store; it was a social outing. I wonder what my 8-year-old self would think if I told her a product that she developed in her kitchen would one day grace those very same Kroger shelves? I’m sure she wouldn’t believe it, but it’s true! I am proud to announce that Kroger and Kroger affiliated stores coast to coast are the newest grocery chain to sell Betsy’s Best. Now my neighbors and friends can purchase a product developed by the little girl in pigtails who trailed her mom at their hometown Kroger.

Landing the Kroger account has literally put us on the map, making Betsy’s Best a national company overnight. In early spring, I walked into the Kroger corporate office in Cincinnati with my four gourmet nut and seed butters. At that point, Betsy’s Best was available in around 600 stores nationwide, but Kroger alone has over 1,700 stores and affiliates throughout the country. It was an important meeting, but it didn’t take long for me to realize it was love at first bite for the buyer. As he licked the spoon after trying each flavor, I recognized the smile on his face; I found another Betsy’s Best fan.

Not long after that meeting, we found out Kroger wanted to carry two of the Betsy’s Best products—the Gourmet Almond Butter and Cashew Butter. But it wasn’t until early October that Kroger told us they were going to put these Betsy’s Best products in 1,305 of their stores. The news was so astounding I literally cried tears of joy.

Except for my daughter, I have never been more proud of something I created. Although we’ve been working at this for over three years, the Betsy’s Best adventure is just beginning. We are thrilled you’re along for the ride. If you haven’t tried Betsy’s Best yet, hopefully you’ll be able to buy it at a grocery store near you soon!

Betsy’s Best can now be found in Albertsons, Baker’s, Bristol Farms, Caputo’s, City Markets, Dillons, Food 4 Less, Fred Meyer, Fry’s, Gerbes, Harris Teeter, Ingles, Jay C, King Soopers, Kroger, Lowes Markets, Mariano’s, Marsh, Owen’s, Pay Less, Plum Market, Ralphs, Ruler Foods, Smith’s, Standard Market, Vons, and Whole Foods Florida. Go to to find Betsy’s Best in a location near you. We are proud of all of our chains and smaller independent retailers!
