Why Would Someone Choose Almond Butter Over Peanut Butter?

Although George Washington Carver is famous for having discovered numerous uses for the peanut, if he could have seen into the future of this humble legume, he might have been completely incredulous to learn that peanut butter would become a classic pantry staple in modern American life.

Peanut butter is arguably a favorite food. Whether incorporated into baked goods, spread on fruits and vegetables, painted on toast and crackers, swirled into ice cream – you name it – it is beloved for its creamy, comforting, smooth, satisfying flavor.

That being said, why would anyone choose almond butter over peanut butter?

There could be some very valid reasons for doing so. Due to rising numbers of people who suffer from peanut allergies, as well as those who are concerned about food safety and production methods, avoiding GMOs and other harmful substances or trying to find lower calorie and less fattening options, many are still on the lookout for the “perfect” nut butter.

Could there actually be something out there with the palate-pleasing versatility of peanut butter but without the less desirable aspects? Look no further, for it has arrived. Enter almond butter.

Are You Serious?

Hey, this is not just any kind of almond butter. And certainly, not the grainy, plaster-textured, hard-to-chew and harder-to-swallow almond butter you tried once that made you conclude it could only be “enjoyed” by confirmed health food crazies who no longer appreciate things that actually taste good. And you felt fairly safe in your conclusions that peanut butter could never be tastefully rivaled.

That was before Maisie Jane’s almond butter came into existence. So, can you lay aside your “nothing can replace my peanut butter” skepticism for just a moment and check out some objective facts? It will be worth it, rest assured.
