Justin's Honey Almond Butter
Eureka! I've recently made a new discovery. One that I'm quite happy about. Yes. Justin's Honey Almond Butter. Now, I recently saw this on a blog and was reminded of it's sheer goodness.
A few months ago, I switched Samantha and Callie from peanut butter to almond butter. It's a bit pricier, but I think it's worth it. We still have peanut butter, but I opt for almond butter over the peanuts if I have a chance. I'm, personally, not a huge almond fan, so all the more reason to get my children into almonds before they're old enough to realize I don't eat them.
After Samantha's therapy, I usually head over to the nearby Whole Foods to pick up a few items that I can't find in other stores. I went down the aisle and saw Justin's Almond Butter. It was on sale and cheaper than the others. I decided to buy it. I mean, really, what's one almond butter compared to the others? I'm all about price.
When we got home, I busted out the crackers and dove into the almond butter. I hadn't realized it, but I bought the Honey Almond version. I thought to myself that I should try it out...see if I can't make some changes too. I spread it on a cracker, and holy moly. I loved this stuff. Maybe it's the honey in it, but I really like it, and now, when it's on sale, I get a few of them (because at regular price it's too much for me.) HoWeVeR, I just saw that on NaturalGrocers.com you can get it for $5.79! Woa! That's a great price. At Whole Foods they sold it in smaller "trial sized" packages for $1. Maybe it'll be worth a try. Check it out. It's my new favorite discovery! And, I happen to love the plain white label. Love it.
