Corby Lovell Berlin’s Peanut Butter Provider

Auckland-born Corby Lovell is introducing Berliners to the delights of peanut butter, selling his Twisted Nut brand to locals at the famous Saturday market at Kollwitzplatz, in the district of Prenzlauer Berg.

“[Lovell] produces ‘handmade organic peanut butter’ in two versions, light and dark. Lovell does not mind naming the ingredients he uses: peanuts, coconut oil and sea salt,” Imanuel Marcus reports for English-language news and features site, Berlin Spectator.

“Indeed, his peanut butter does not have much in common with the north American stuff they sell at supermarkets. It tastes fresh, real and authentic, as if a guy named Corby Lovell, Berlin’s expat peanut butter producer, had made it himself. His little company is ‘Twisted Nut’ and his products are Berlin-compatible since they are gluten-free, lactose-free and vegan.”
