Reginald’s Homemade named one of 10 Best at 2013 Fancy Food Show

 

Shape Magazine

This week, we were honored to learn that Shape’s Keri Gans named Reginald’s Homemade one of the 10 Best Snacks at the 2013 Fancy Food Show in New York.

Here’s what she wrote about our nut butters:

“This peanut butter definitely tastes homemade. It only has two ingredients: peanuts and peanut oil. Absolutely no salt has been added, which is hard to find in a peanut butter. One serving of 2 tablespoons provides 180 calories, 15g fat (only 2g saturated), 7g protein, and 0mg sodium. It comes in a variety of flavors, but for me there is nothing better than plain crunchy.”

Peanut Butter that Tastes Like…Well, Peanuts

4:30 PM / AUGUST 28, 2012
POSTED BY Danielle Walshreginalds-646.jpg(Credit: Courtesy Reginald’s Homemade)
Does that jar of peanut butter sitting on your shelf really taste like peanuts? The one you got at the supermarket?No, it doesn’t. It’s got a somewhat nutty taste, but most of the flavor is masked by SO MUCH SUGAR. Oh, harsh.

Our spirits were lifted when Reginald’s Homemade Peanut Butter crossed our desks, dazzling us with its sole two ingredients: Virginia peanuts and peanut oil. And you know what that means? It tastes like peanuts. So yeah, we’re into it.

BONUS! Bonappetit.com readers get 15% off the total order from the Reginald’s website with the code BonAppetit15 for one month starting today.

 Farmers Market

41. Bonnyclabber Lachevriere Cendre
Farmers-market season is officially in full effect, and one not-to-be-missed treat handcrafted in Virginia’s Middle Peninsula near the Chesapeake Bay is Bonnyclabber Cheese Co.’s Lachevriere Cendre, an ashed semisoft goat cheese that’s as lovely to look at as it is to eat. Coated in charcoal made from wood-fired grapevine prunings mixed with a bit of kosher salt, not only is this cheese 100 percent artisanal, but it also makes one heck of an addition to beet and watercress salad. —KBM
sullivanspond.com; South of the James Market, themarketumbrella.com

42. Reginald’s Homemade Cashewnilla Butter
As a connoisseur of nut butters, I tried this version and realized what was missing in my life. The cashews are mixed with just enough vanilla to highlight their sweetness and just enough peanut oil to make it easily spreadable without the constant mixing of most natural nut butters. No sugars added, just all-natural goodness. —JB
reginaldshomemade.com; St. Stephen’s Farmers Market, saintstephensrichmond.net/farmersmarket 

43. Mrs. Yoder’s Kitchen Doughnuts 
After you pack your market basket full of fresh spinach and strawberries, join the lengthy line at Mrs. Yoder’s for a melt-in-your mouth sourdough doughnut, dripping with sweet glaze. Made on-site at the lively South of the James Market by the men, women and children of McKenney-based Mrs. Yoder’s Kitchen, the
sizable fried delights are worth every minute spent waiting in anticipation. —KH
(540) 395-5213; South of the James Market, themarketumbrella.com

44. Asian Turnips From Amy’s Garden
It’s the classic farmers-market story: Week after week, you see a not-quite-familiar vegetable. Then you take the plunge, ask for preparation advice and fall in love. These little white turnips make for crisp additions to salads, but sautéed in olive oil, they caramelize and sweeten. How can such a healthy dish taste so good? (Bonus: You can also eat the tender greens topping
them.) —BF

45. Norwood Cottage Bakery Curry Raisin Bread (pictured top)
Yes, we are willing to shell out a few extra bucks at the farmers markets for crusty bread. With Norwood Cottage Bakery, Mark McIntyre delivers more than good crust and crumb — he challenges us with his thoughtful combinations. This enriching raisin bread with a curry flavor that blooms in your mouth is yet another inspired offering from this North Side cottage industry. —JB

Life Changing Experience Launches New PB Company

After losing over 150 pounds by changing his eating habits, Andrew Broocker discovered a love for peanut butter along the way. His newfound love transformed into the launch of a peanut butter line called Reginald’s Homemade in May of 2011.

Reginald’s Homemade is an all-natural line of peanut butter with traditional and non-traditional flavors.  While many peanut butters are made with runner-type peanuts, Reginald’s Homemade uses its home state’s namesake, Virginia-type peanuts, in its products.

“I feel fortunate to have grown up in Virginia because it’s home to a great peanut. With farms only 90 minutes away from my home, it was a natural choice for us to choose the Virginia peanut,” said company founder Broocker.

Part of what makes Reginald’s Homemade a standout is its flavor variety—from original to Apple Sin, Nana Honey, Double Chocolate Chunk, and White Chocolate. Each bite of Reginald’s Homemade has the just-right amount of natural flavoring that never overpowers the true peanut taste. The company is always open to testing new flavors.

“Peanut butter is one of my favorite foods, and I’m just grateful that I’m able to marry my passion with a business. Peanuts are so versatile, but my personal favorite way to enjoy them has always been peanut butter. I love how peanut butter is delicious on its own and even better when you kick it up with complimentary and unique flavors,” said Broocker.

Reginald’s Homemade was recently featured in Shape magazine as a great new snack to try.

You can find Reginald’s Homemade online at www.reginaldshomemade.com or at various retailers throughout Virginia in Richmond, Charlottesville and Williamsburg, and in Fresh Markets in Rockville, Md.

Tell us the basics: Who are you, what’s your company’s name, and how long have you been at this company?

My name is Andrew Broocker and I own Reginald’s Homemade. We make all-natural peanut and cashew butter that’s sold online, at local farmers’ markets and at various retailers throughout Richmond, Charlottesville, Williamsburg and now Rockville, Md. We’ve been around since May 2011.

You lost 150 pounds while deciding to live a healthier lifestyle. What led from that to starting a business focusing on peanut butter and other nut butters?

I worked in the restaurant industry around Richmond for most of my adult life. I was overweight, unhealthy and unhappy. One day, I said “enough is enough” and decided to turn my life around and get fit. Over the course of a year, I lost about 150 lbs. As I got healthy, I developed a love for all-natural peanut butter. When I wasn’t satisfied with the options on the shelf, I started to make my own. That’s how Reginald’s Homemade got its start.

Day 4: One-Month No-Groceries Challenge

Friday, 1/20/2012 at 1:53:07 PM
By Karen Borsari rss
Eating on a Budget Day 4: My No-Groceries One-Month Healthy Eating Plan
The one-month no-groceries challenge is proving difficult, and not in the way I expected. Here it is, day four of the challenge and I don’t think my fridge is any emptier! After just a few days it’s clear that dinner is my downfall.
Once again breakfast started strong. I brought rolled oats from home that I heated when I got to work and stirred in two spoonfuls or Reginald’s homemade Apple Sin peanut butter with an extra sprinkle of cinnamon on top. Delish! I love Reginald’s in my oatmeal because it’s very smooth and mixes in really well. Plus, the fun apple cinnamon flavor means I don’t have to add any sweetener.

At lunchtime things were still looking good. I brought in the remainder of my chopped Romaine lettuce and topped it with the leftover salmon, couscous, and root vegetables from my lunch out on day two. I don’t prefer reheated fish so I thought eating it as part of a salad was a good solution. Plus, throwing the super-buttery couscous on top of lettuce leaves made me feel less bad about all that added fat. And I didn’t have to add any olive oil—just lemon juice to dress the salad.

Dinner was, yet again my downfall. I met friends for drinks, which, before I knew it were accompanied by a wide array of tasty, if not unhealthy appetizers. By the time I got home I wasn’t hungry for dinner but the cocktails made me think I just had to have more of those chocolate covered cookies. Confession: I had six. That’s double what I normally allow myself! Looking on the bright side; at least I finished them and they are out of the house.

I’m headed out of town for the weekend so I won’t be making a dent in my food supplies for the next few days. Hopefully nothing goes bad while I’m gone. And hopefully I can use the time away to get back on track after a few days of dining out, drinks, and dessert.

Today’s produce status

Fresh Produce:
¼ head of Romainlettuce
1/3 head of cabbage
1/2 a bag of carrots
A few scallions
½ a bag of white baking potatoes
1 apple
1 (really large) butternut squash
1 acorn squash
1 ½ onions
Handful of roasted root vegetables
1-2 servings mixed greens with shredded carrot
Handful of grape tomatoes

Frozen Veggies:
1/2 a bag of corn
1 bag of broccoli
1 bag of spinach
1 bag of Brussels sprouts

How are you doing with the challenge? Leave a comment or tweet me @Shape_Magzine. I know my girl@wbiber is going strong—except she’s low on peanut butter! I feel your pain but I know you can hold out.

As an editor at SHAPE I have the chance to learn about the healthiest ways to cook, eat, and live from all sorts of experts but I’m also a single girl living in NYC with a busy schedule, active social life, and chocolate cravings. I’m here to share what works for me—and where I need a little help from you.

10 Healthiest Ways to Enjoy Peanut Butter

Enjoy peanut butter fear-free with these amazingly tasty yet healthy snacks, recipes, natural peanut butters, and meal ideas.

By Karen Borsari

Never fear being left alone with a jar of peanut butter and a spoon again! We’ve rounded up the best peanut butter products for any craving. Many of them are portion-controlled so the burden isn’t on you to stop! Whether it’s peanut butter cookies, peanut butter bars, chocolate and peanut butter, or just straight up PB you crave we’ve got you covered!

Reginald’s Homemade Peanut Butter
1. Reginald’s Homemade Peanut Butter
What do we love most about Reginald’s Homemade peanut butter? The ingredient list: roasted unsalted peanuts and peanut oil. We were blown away by the true peanut flavor and its incredibly smooth texture. Our favorite way to enjoy Reginald’s is to stir a few tablespoons of the Apple Sin (roasted unsalted peanuts, dehydrated apples, peanut oil, cinnamon) into our morning oatmeal with an extra sprinkle of cinnamon on top. The apple flavor is so light while the taste of peanuts comes through in every bite! Plus, it keeps you full way longer than a good old PB&J.

A Nutter for Peanut Butter
Fitness buff’s obsession leads to a new business venture
BY RACHEL DOZIER
Issue: August 2011
Posted: 12/20/11 1:44 PM

While walking through a grocery store one day, Andrew Broocker picked up a jar of natural, salt-free peanut butter. He went home, opened the jar and within minutes looked down to see he’d eaten more than half of its contents.

Panicking, he grabbed the jar, got in his car and threw the peanut butter in a trash can far away from his house. At that time, Broocker was in the middle of a major weight-loss effort (eventually losing more than half his body weight), so he was alarmed by his uncontrolled consumption.

Oddly enough, Broocker (pictured),
37, of Henrico County, says he had never craved peanut butter until after he started losing weight. His journey began on Feb. 3, 2008, when he woke up and decided to change his life. He was overweight and inactive, and he knew it couldn’t continue. Starting out, “I knew I couldn’t just go into a gym,” he says. “Instead, I took my Golden Retriever for a half-mile walk.” The workouts (and weight loss) grew from there. After losing more than 150 pounds, the former restaurant manager became a personal trainer who rises at 4:15 every morning to get in his daily workout. And he never stopped eating peanut butter. While he doesn’t consider it a “diet food,” he sees it as a good source of protein when eaten in moderation.

Broocker’s taste for peanut butter wasn’t satisfied by the jars he found on grocery shelves, so he began making his own. He found a Wakefield farmer who grows peanuts, and then set up shop in his mother’s kitchen. After his experiments yielded tasty results, he decided to go into business

and he asked his mother, Lois, to be his partner. She had been diagnosed with breast cancer (now in remission) shortly after he began losing wei

ght, and her fight for survival provided inspiration for him. The product gets its name from one of the family dogs — a cockapoo named Reginald. “He was really full of himself,” Broocker says. “But he was a very regal dog with a good, strong name.”

Having just made its debut in May, Reginald’s Homemade Peanut Butter (reginaldshomemade.com) can be found in Whole Foods Markets and at the Farmers Market at St. Stephen’s. Popular flavors include Nana Honey, Double Chocolate Chunk and Hazelnut Amaretto. In July, Broocker added Bourbon Pecan, and he dreams of making an ice cream out of his White Chocolate Macadamia Peanut Butter. “In the future, I see Reginald’s in every grocery store in the country,” he says. “I think the possibilities for it are endless.”

Richmond Times-DispatchBiz Buzz: Life change leads to the creation of a peanut butter business

By: LOUIS LLOVIO | Richmond Times-Dispatch , TIMES-DISPATCH STAFF | Times-Dispatch
Published: November 28, 2011

Andrew Broocker woke up on Feb. 4, 2008, looked in the mirror and decided he’d had enough. It was time to change his life.

“I was tired of it. I was tired of how I looked. I was tired of how I was living,” said Broocker, who was overweight his entire life and bordering on obese.

That same day, he began a process that would, within a year, help him lose more than half his weight, or about 160 pounds, and would, eventually, lead him into an unexpected new career as a peanut butter manufacturer.

Broocker is owner of Reginald’s Homemade, a peanut butter company that makes eight flavors and two types of cashew butters. Among the flavors are Bourbon Pecan, Apple Sin, Nana Honey and White Chocolate Macadamia. The butters, which are all-natural, are sold at several area retailers, including Ellwood Thompson’s Local Market near Carytown, Libbie Market near Libbie and Grove avenues and Whole Foods in western Henrico County.

They also are available through the online grocer Relay Foods and at several stores in Williamsburg, Charlottesville and at the Omni Bedford Springs Resort in Bedford, Pa.

Broocker said he got the idea for the peanut butter while working on losing weight and eating healthier. To curb his eating, he kept a minimal amount of food in his home. It worked — to a point.

“I looked great but felt sluggish. I needed to add calories to my diet,” he said.

He turned to peanut butter, but soon found that the brands he was buying just didn’t taste right.

“A lot of food doesn’t taste like it should. Peanut butter should taste like peanuts,” he said.

To fix the problem, he began adding flavor and making his own. And that dalliance led to Reginald’s Homemade.

Broocker gets his peanuts from a farm in Wakefield and makes the butter himself at his house in Goochland County.

“We do everything but grow the peanuts,” he said.

All of Reginald’s Homemade peanut butter is salt-free and has no preservatives.

“I firmly believe you don’t have to have additives to bring out flavor,” Broocker said.

Salt-Free

This morning, an article ran in the Metro Business section of the Richmond Times-Dispatch stating that our products are fat-free. This is an incorrect statement that should have stated our products are salt-free and made with no preservatives.

The article is being corrected online, but we realize the printed version may create some false expectations of Reginald’s products. We apologize for any inconvenience.

So, while we can’t promise a fat-free peanut butter, we can promise one that is made with all natural ingredients, and that delivers what we believe to be the most authentic peanut and cashew butter flavors on earth.

Happy holidays, everyone.
- Andrew Broocker


Reginald’s Looks Good In Pink

So here we are, October. October has become a very special month at Reginald’s. A lot of you all know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For most years I didn’t give two thoughts about the meaning of the month. A few years ago my mom (who also happens to be my partner at Reginald’s) was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was only then did I start thinking about that evil disease. I had no idea how many people breast cancer affected. When I saw the statistics it was overwhelming. In the back of my mind (long before Reginald’s became a reality) I said if I could do my part in any way I would. Well the time has arrived.

For the entire month of October the website will be Pink. We also have turned our Original Creamy Label Pink. The label looks amazing (only cause of the brilliance of Dave Hedeman). It’s really perfect. The Pink Creamy Jar will be sold for $10 at every event we do in October (there are a bunch) and online. $5 of every jar sold will go to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. We have 500 labels on hand. My goal is to have to order 500 more labels well before the end of the month. We will also offer while supplies last a limited number of Pink Reginald’s hats and visors ($10 of each sold will also be donated).

I can venture to say that everyone out there knows somebody affected by this disease. Every $5 or $10 donation will add up. Please help Reginald’s and turn Pink too.

This is for the women and all the families that have been affected by Breast Cancer. My hope is that one day nobody will have to lose their fight. Let’s do our part to make that a reality.

Here’s a link to the site: www.relayfoods.com

Recently they were nice enough to come out and interview us for their “Meet Our Vendors” feature. Check out the article here: Meet our Vendors: Reginald’s Peanut Butter.


Cleaning out the notebook

Sorry guys, been a while since I posted.  You know how it is in the peanut butter(and currently cashew) world.  Just wanted to update everyone on what’s been going on.

We have a few new retail locations to add to the Reginald’s world.

1.  Libbie Market:  A staple in Richmond, Va.  Former Joe’s Market they continue to carry on great service and wonderful products.  They are the first location to carry all Original 8 flavors.

2. Cooper Vineyards:  A great Vineyard and Winery located in Louisa, Va.  It’s located between Richmond and C-Ville.  The have an awesome selections of wines and carry some of Reginald’s more decadent flavors.

3.  Omni Resort Bedford Springs:  Stop on the way to Pittsburgh.  Check it out. Great spot, great golf, very relaxing and Reginald’s rocking in the Gourmet Shop.

4.  Mrs. Bryants:  Taking a trip to Williamsburg.  Stop in to Mrs. Bryants Specialty and pick up a few jars.  They do a great job of promoting local Virginia goods.

 

Also just in the last few days Reginald’s joined forces with Relay Foods.  They have asked us to part of their Richmond and Charlottesville locations.  Very exciting stuff.  They are a great company that strives to promote local products.  Please click on their website and find out all about them.  It’s truly the wave of the future and Reginald’s is thrilled to be a part.

Besides all that great news our 2 new flavors Bourbon Pecan Peanut Butter and Cinnamon Molasses Cashew Butter both made their maiden voyage a few Sundays ago at the Virginia Food and Wine Festival.  Both flavors were a smashing success as was the festival.  We met a ton of new people and picked up a bunch of new fans.  Thanks to everyone who came out!!  Back to the new flavors.  Both are now available to order on the website and will be available at every event we do.

Finally we have been working very hard to make our shipping rates more affordable.  The end is in sight.  We have found a solution and shortly it will be implemented on the website.  As soon as we do you all will be the first to know.  Look forward to getting Reginald’s to every state in the country then beyond.  Again thanks to everyone for the amazing support, the best is yet to come.

Local to Richmond, VA? Why Pay Shipping?

We know that the cost of shipping can be a barrier to placing an order online. Especially if the order is a small one. We’re working on finding ways to bring our shipping costs down, but until we’re able to do that, we want to make sure there are alternative ways to enjoy our products.

In the coming weeks, we hope to have some new shipping solutions worked out. In the meantime, here are a few ways you can avoid shipping charges if you live in or around Richmond, VA.

Pick up your order at the St. Stephens Farmers Market
If you’re able to make it to the Market on Saturday morning, we’re happy to prepare your order for pickup at the St. Stephen Farmers Market, held each Saturday at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church through the end of October. If you’d like to place an order for pickup, please submit the following through our contact form here:

  • The name and quantity of products you’d like us to have prepared for you
  • A contact phone number where we can reach if we have questions about your order

Please be sure to submit your order no later than 5:00pm on the Thursday prior and we’ll have it waiting for you at the market on Saturday morning! Be sure to bring cash with you on Saturday as we cannot accept credit cards at the Farmers Market at this time.

Shop Locally
There are several shops and markets where Reginald’s Homemade products can be found locally. Check our our Where to Buy page for more information. We’re looking forward to expanding this list over time.

We’ll continue to work on finding better ways to ship and distribute our products. In the meantime, hopefully we can at least make local orders easier.

Thanks so much for your support!

 


Happy Birthday Reginald!!

It’s a very special day here in the land of Peanut Butter.  The namesake of our company one Reginald Charles would have been 19 today.  For those of you who don’t know Reginald(Reggie) was a very sweet, full of himself, sometimes a little off, Cock-a-Poo.  Although he had quite a few issues(probably being generous there) he was a great boy and certainly deserving of having a company named after him.  I spilled a tablespoon of Reginald’s Original Crunchy today in honor of good old Reggie.   So Reg wherever you may be(there is a family dispute as to whether he really went up) have a great birthday and remember we named the company to honor you so please play nice.

Back to the world of peanut butter….

-Andrew


Did somebody say Honeybee?

I’m not talking about the Blake Shelton song(although we here at Reginald’s are big fans).  Nope I’m talking about actual honey bees.  Hands down the best honey in Virginia comes from a farm not far from Richmond called Bearer Farms.  Reginald’s is now lucky enough to be using an amazing local product for all of our peanut butters that contain honey.  As of this moment we have one, Nana Honey, but there just may be somemore in the future.  Spread the word, eat some peanut butter, enjoy some of life’s simple pleasures.  Again thanks for everyone’s support, it’s been tremendous.  Just remember we haven’t  even scratched the surface…….

-Andrew(by the way if someone knows Blake Shelton, just sayin)
