BNutty, the artisan peanut butter maker that started out of a rented church kitchen in Valparaiso, will be featured Tuesday on QVC. 

The Merrillville-based company will sell its popular creamy creations from 2 to 4 p.m. CST on the shopping channel, according to a post on BNutty's Facebook page.

"The company has grown so quickly in four years since we started," said Carol Podolak, director of sales for BNutty. "We're so excited to be on QVC. ... It's a huge jump for us. We love for people to see what we're doing in Northwest Indiana." 

Among the many flavors BNutty makes are Simply Salted Caramel, S'more Dreams, Joyful Cranberries and Java Energy. 

BNutty peanut butter is widely sold across Northwest Indiana, at specialty stores and retailers like Charcuterie in Griffith, Rocky Mountain Cafe in LaPorte, Peck 'O Peppers in Kouts and Absolute Nutrition in St. John and Winfield. It also is sold nationally at 48 Bed, Bath and Beyond stores, select Walmart stores — including one in Orland Hills, Illinois — and on its website.
