We love working with brands and helping them to collaborate with our bloggers – so much so that we are always on the lookout for exciting people to talk about and share with them. During our extensive research to find the hottest trends and coolest products, we come across up-and-coming brands that we just have to introduce you to! Some of the brands below you’ll find in our opportunity board, others are simply companies our detectives found online. Let’s take a look at what’s trending in the HBC Edit this week.
Pic’s Peanut Butter
Ah peanut butter. Let’s face it, we’re all addicted to the stuff. But we promise, you haven’t truly fallen in love with peanut butter until you have an affair with Pic’s. Travelling all the way from New Zealand to bring you the highest quality of peanut butter known to man, Pic’s peanut butter is made from super healthy Australian hi-oleic peanuts. Oilier than other peanuts and with a higher nutritional value, hi-oleic peanuts don’t go rancid as quickly as other peanuts do. Their PB contains no added sugar, no palm oil – just a smidge of the finest Kiwi sea salt (although they also do jars without this) and premium peanuts. While you’re checking out their peanut butter, make sure you take a look at their other nut butters and peanut oil too! Pic’s are currently looking for bloggers who love peanut butter to become ambassadors. Check out the opportunity here.
Pick it up at: Available at the Mae Deli in London, and online worldwide. You can also check their international stockists here.
