Field Trip For Chickpea Butter

Tom Donigan’s kids can’t bring peanut butter sandwiches (or any nut butters) to school. They were tired of sunflower seed butter.

So — working in Matt Levey’s kitchen — Donigan developed chickpea butter.

It’s nutty, delicious, and a little sweet.

It’s also the first vegan product line for Field Trip. That’s the jerky company whose world headquarters — and only retail store in the world — is located Westport, on the Post Road opposite Design Within Reach.

The all-natural chickpea butter is available in 3 flavors: classic, cinnamon churro and chai spice.

They’re sold online, in over 10,000 stores nationwide — and at the downtown outlet.

And — because Field Trip calls Westport home — Donigan and Levey are offering “06880” readers 20% off, for stocking stuffers or Hanukkah gifts. Just say “06880” — and enjoy!

Downtown Business Challenges Kids: Earn Money, Get Free Jerky

As a kid, Matt Levey earned money mowing lawns, shoveling snow and working lemonade stands.

Those experiences served him well. Today he owns Field Trip. That’s the red-hot producer of healthy, protein-rich jerky, in flavors ranging from beef, chicken, turkey and pork to jalapeño, cracked pepper and everything bagel.

They’re in 50,000 retail outlets nationwide. Field Trip is served on Jet Blue and United Airlines.

They’ve got only one store, though. It’s connected to their world headquarters on Post Road East — right across from Design Within Reach.

The Field Trip counter: fun, and filled with great-tasting products.

Levey would love to see kids in his home town — future entrepreneurs, who will create the next Field Trip (though hopefully not in the jerky industry) — put down their phones and video games, go out and earn money.

Anyone can do it. So he’s offering everyone an incentive.

If you’re still in school, and you make money doing something, head down to Field Trip. Matt will give you a “buy one, get one” deal on anything in the store.

This coming week — school vacation — is a perfect time to do it.

Just show proof of what you’ve done with a photo on (uh oh) a cell phone.
