Good Luck Chuck Sunflower Seed Butter Review

I received free samples of Good Luck Chuck sunflower seed butter for review.

As I waited for the product to arrive I pondered the name. Is it meant to be “Good Luck, Chuck” as if wishing Chuck some good luck? Or is “Good-luck” an adjective, as if Chuck brings good luck? Amazing what a comma or a hyphen can do.

And so I searched out the story. One might assume that the sunflower seed butter is made by Chuck, but alas, it’s not. Aaron is the founder of Good Luck Chuck (and the guy who sent me free samples). It turns out that Chuck is a guy that Aaron met when Chuck was down on his luck. Aaron helped Chuck out that day, bringing Chuck a little bit of luck. Hence the name “Good Luck Chuck”.

Of course, you wouldn’t necessarily know by the product name that this is sunflower seed butter, but it is – and it’s good!

It comes in three flavors – original (think “plain” or “classic”), chocolate (yup, it’s like Nutella without the nuts), and surprise, surprise – sriracha!! Now that’s a spicy twist.

What I love most about this product is the ingredients. There’s nothing in here that I wouldn’t put in my own homemade version. The ingredients for original are:

Sunflower seeds, sugar, palm oil, salt

The label also clearly states that none of the top 8 allergens are present. Each serving has 3 grams of sugar and 7 grams of protein. This is good stuff.

I tried the original first, as that’s the version I can best compare. This is a very creamy butter (creamier than most) and I did need to stir it when I opened the jar.

If you are in search of a great sunflower seed butter source, I think Good Luck Chuck’s is worth a try, and it’s available on amazon (affiliate link).

Siracha!? ooooh! I love the idea of playing around with this. I will check out the cross contact issues for my family's allergies and hope that I'll be soon checking this one out. What a fascinating find. Thanks for sharing and happy 4th of July!
