Sneaky Chef is launching a nut-free alternative to chocolate spread or peanut butter in the US.

The Sneaky Chef Chocolate No-Nut Butter is made from yellow peas and is 100% peanut and tree-nut free. The line is produced at Sneaky Chef's nut-free facility. 

The product does not contain soy, gluten, high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, artificial colours or flavours. It is also lower in sugar than alternative chocolate spreads, the company said. 

"Our new Sneaky Chef Chocolate No-Nut Butter has all the rich-fudgy taste of other chocolate spreads, but with up to 50% less sugar", said Missy Chase Lapine, founder and president of Sneaky Chef. "It tastes like old fashioned brownie batter licked straight off the mixer."

Sneaky Chef Chocolate No-Nut Butter is available in 16.7 ounce jars at a suggested retail price of US$6.99.
