The Better Butter & A giveaway!

I LOVE almond butter. I never really tried it till I started reading blogs, but now I just LOVE it. I usually just buy it bulk at my local co-op. I know it's all natural and organic and it's cheaper than buying a big jar of expensive butter. 

A few weeks ago when I went to the Minneapolis Blogger Meet Up, inside of our goodie bags was a little squeeze pack of Barney Butter. It was a single serving size already measured out, it was awesome! 

This is The Wedge Co-op almond butter with Agave sweeter on top, still a fan favorite! 

Last week as I was shopping in a little juice bar and cafe called Tao Foods, which is near my house and I always pass on my runs to the lake, I spied this: Justin's MAPLE Almond Butter! I grabbed a pack to try so I could blog about the Nut Butter Face off!! 

Verdict: While I am loyal to the bulk stuff at my co-op and I really like the consistency of the  Barney's Butter. It was a little smoother and not as grainy. The co-op stuff can get a bit grainy and separate, but it's in bulk, not a little pouch that keeps it mixed well, so that's understandable. I also think the Maple Justin's had a better taste, but I could be partial to the maple flavoring! I have a bit of a sweet tooth.

I am just NUTS about the Nut butter!!
