Nuts n More Nut Butter on Shark Tank

Nutritious Almond and Peanut Butter - Season 4 - Episode 420 - 3-1-2013

Shark Tank Season 4, episode 420 The Nut Butter Business must be a growing market as we have yet another peanut butter inspired business coming to the Shark Tank. The Nut's n More business model was started by Peter Ferreira and Dennis Iannotti from Pawtuckett, RI with already several varieties to choose from including the peanut butter, almond butter, Nuts N More - Chocolate Almond Butter , chocolate peanut and cinnamon raisin almond butter. Both Peter and Dennis are fitness and nutrition experts that have designed the ultimate high protein energy booster that also happens to taste very good.

What makes the Nut's n More Brand different
 from lets say the Wild Squirrel Nut Butter started by two College friends from Shark Tank Season 3, is this Nut Butter is this peanut butter is marketed towards the Health and Fitness Market. In fact Iannotti and Ferreira have already secured retail space in a few dozen Health food Stores around the country. As with any good product the very best advertising that money usually Can Not Buy, comes from Word of Mouth. It does not take much Googling to see that the Nut's n More reviews  have had overwhelmingly favorable reviews spread out over several different outlets from Body Building to Vitamin and Supplement websites.

seen on the Shark Tank Episode 420 What started out in 2011 as a high protein rich natural butter spread to replenish your body after work outs has quickly spread to over 40 stores across the country and now into Canada. The number of online fitness stores that also carry the Nut's n More Brand is just as impressive and is expected to grow substantially after the Shark Tank Effect takes a hold of this new health food that millions of people will discover for the first time. Did I mention that the Baltimore Ravens now use the Nut's n More Brand during their training camp? Anytime you can associate a product with any Pro Sports Team can only be a good thing.

Nut's n More before the Shark Tank

 This is clearly becoming an established brand within the Health and Fitness community that has never been afraid to open up their wallets and become loyal customers of products that meet their expectations. As I write this I have to admit, I do not belong to a gym or spend much time in Health Food Stores, I get plenty of exercise in the Great Outdoors. But I still like peanut butter. The point is I hope they do not try and narrow down their customer base too much and focus just on the health and fitness crowd during the Shark Tank Show presentation. The bigger the market you can show the Sharks the larger the initial valuation they will put on your business.

Information for Ordering "Nuts n More" Online Here
The peanut butter runs $9.99 per jar and $12.99 for the almond butter blends. At first glance I would have to say this seems a little pricey for a jar of peantbutter. But then again, this is not your ordinary jar of Jiffy that (I had to go look) has some ingredients I can not even pronounce let alone know what it is. The Nut's n More Brand actually comes with a list of Health benefits that clearly make this much more then most peanut butter brands on the market. There simply is no comparison other then they both use nuts.



Nuts n More Shark Tank Update

 They came in the Shark Tank asking for $250k for a 20% stake which puts the initial valuation at $1,250,000.00 for the health nut business. They have over $100k in sales in less then a year and need the investment to drastically lower their overhead. The numbers are not adding up for this high of a valuation at this point which gets Daymond John and Barbara Corcoran to go out rather fast. Kevin O'Leary make an offer but he wants 264% of the company for that kind of money. Mark Cuban sees potential and offers them a tiered level of his investment. He will give them the $250k but only $75k upfront and the remainder $175k as needed for 35% of the business. Robert Herjevic agrees to go in with Mark and the trio accepts the Deal!

A Very Very Good Deal For Everyone!

    Their product contains Xilitol...even in small doses, Xilitol can be fatal to dogs because it can cause dramatic shifts in their blood sugar.

    Re Anonymous: - I checked this Xilitol fact of yours, the average dog weighs 50 lbs.

    Fact about Xilitol and dogs: If greater than 100 milligrams of Xilitol is consumed per kilogram of bodyweight of a dog then it can be fatal - according to Wikipedia.

    HOWEVER do you know how much that is? a 50 lb dog is equal to 22 kilograms, one dog would have to eat 2000 milligrams of Xilitol!....2000 MILLIGRAMS!!!!!

    THAT'S CASES and CASES OF PEANUT BUTTER!

    I wouldn't worry about that, besides this product isn't marketed as dog food, it's for people so your point is a non issue.

    If the Sharks thought it was expensive in the US, they should see the Canadian prices. $15 for the peanut butter and $17 for the almond butter! What is the point of gouging in the Canadian market?

    Yeah, I was interested as well until I saw the Canadian prices. I think it is the Canadian Retailer doing the crazy markup... Get the prices down in Canada and I will give it a try.

    Did anybody notice that sharks didn't ask what was PROPRIETARY about their blend? Yes, they might be the first to enter the fitness market, but what's stopping competitors? Patent? Trade secret? Does the fact this wasn't asked look a bit odd?

    I agree with the comment of "Did anybody notice that sharks didn't ask what was PROPRIETARY about their blend?" - this is something O'Leary and Cuban always hammer people on, but here that discussion was completely edited out (I understand these interviews last a couple of hours and we just see the edited sound bits - and remember that all Mark Burnett shows are basically BS staged reality shows that often don't resemble what is really happening. Still, with that caveat, I am surprised that the fact that anybody can create a replica of Nuts N More (and what is so great about that name?) was not brought up. Good to see that there is demand - but the article comparing it to Jiffy or Skippy is kind of lame - they are total garbage - there are many sources of pure peanut butter with no salt added - hey try Trader Joe's for about $1.89 per 12 oz jar!
