WAXHAW, NC – For Mark and Megan Overbay, owners of Big Spoon Roasters, health, and nutrition go hand-in-hand with great flavor. Mark is a self-proclaimed, life-long, peanut butter lover. During his time spent in the Peace Corp from 1999-2000, peanut butter was a luxury that wasn’t found in rural Zimbabwe. He decided to make use of his surroundings and create homemade peanut butter. Mark roasted peanuts over an open fire, pounded them into a paste using stones, then mixed in raw honey, sea salt, and coconut oil. The result? The best peanut butter he had ever tasted.
Ten years later, during a craving for fresh peanut butter and finding none, the idea of starting a business selling handcrafted nut butter was initiated, and Big Spoon Roasters was born. Big Spoon Roasters believes that food matters. It matters to your overall well-being and to the sustainability of our planet, and it should be flavorful and healthy.
Big Spoon Roasters has a diverse line of nut butter and health bars to meet your flavor needs. With health bar flavors that include Cherry Pecan, Cranberry Cashew, and Figgy Chai, you’re sure to find a unique bar that you’ll love. Big Spoon Roaster’s top nut butter sellers include Lemon Coconut Cashew Butter, Maple Cinnamon Peanut and Pecan Butter, and Chai Spice Peanut and Almond Butter.
