Packaging Spotlight: Calve Peanut Butter



Designed by

Gideon Evenhouse

Rotterdam, Netherlands



Calvé has been around for more than 100 years and has made peanut butter for over 65 years. With this project we got the task to create a new label for the Calvé peanut butter packaging.

The label is designed with the idea to show off the proud heritage of Calvé. There is an illustration with small hints of the original factory and it's origin. The NOF (Nederlandse Olie Fabriek) is shown in it's large and original scale like back in the day. The style of the illustration is a nod to the sla-olie stijl (jugendstil) from Jan Toorop.

As an end result the label creates a more luxuries design showing the proud heritage. A pot of peanut butter that no one would mind to have on their table during lunch!

Food Spotlight: Pip & Nut Limited Edition Crunchy Maple Peanut Butter

Spoil your store cupboard with a jar of our ridiculously tasty nut butter! Great eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

With a drizzle of Canadian maple syrup and an extra peanut-ty bite this nut butter won‘t hang around for long, so catch it before it leaves.






About the Company

As a runner, Pip was always on the lookout for delicious things to eat before heading out into the great outdoors. As a firm believer that food should be super tasty, yet packed with nutrients and energy, she began making her own nut butters.

Determined to keep things simple, she removed refined sugars and palm oil to celebrate the mighty nut, then added other natural ingredients for an extra flavour kick.

Before long, Pip & Nut was being sold at Maltby Street Market in London, but Pip‘s small scale production just couldn’t fulfil the demand. Happily these days you can find our nut butters in Selfridges and other leading stores. Follow the news for more of Pip‘s ramblings and progress.

Graceland Mini Cupcakes
Recipe courtesy of Linda D., Coconut Creek, Florida
Serves: 36

2          cups all-purpose flour
2          teaspoons baking powder
1/2       teaspoon salt
4          ripe bananas
1/2       cup light sour cream
4          tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
2          tablespoons canola oil
3/4       cups sugar
2          large eggs, at room temperature
1          large egg white, at room temperature
1          teaspoon vanilla extract

Peanut Butter Filling:
1/4       cup creamy peanut butter

Bacon Topping:
4          slices bacon
1/2       cup brown sugar

8          ounces low-fat cream cheese
1/2       cup butter
1/2       cup creamy peanut butter
2          teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4       cups confectioners' sugar

Heat oven to 350 F. Line cupcake tins with paper liners and lightly spray with cooking spray.

To make batter: In medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Stir to combine and set aside.

In small bowl, mash bananas and add sour cream. Mix well and set aside.

Using electric hand mixer, beat butter, oil and sugar until incorporated, about 3-5 minutes. Add eggs, egg white and vanilla. Mix until combined. Slowly add half the dry ingredients and mix until almost incorporated. Add sour cream and banana mixture and gently fold into batter. Add rest of dry ingredients until combined.

Spoon batter into lined cupcake pans. Bake 18-20 minutes and let cool.

After cooling about 30-45 minutes, use paring knife to cut small circle in middle of top of cupcakes and remove plug, creating a well about halfway down cupcake. Add peanut butter to piping bag and fill each hole. Set aside.

In medium bowl, dredge both sides of bacon slices in brown sugar. Place on foil-lined baking sheet; bake 10 minutes. Flip and bake another 6-8 minutes. Remove bacon from oven and place on plate to cool. Once cool, chop bacon and set aside.

To make frosting: In large bowl, combine cream cheese, butter, peanut butter and vanilla extract. Mix until combined. Add confectioner's sugar and mix until well-combined.

Add frosting to piping bag. Pipe a dollop of frosting onto each cupcake and sprinkle with candied bacon pieces.
