REVIEW: Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter

By September 15, 2018 No Comments

Almond butter can be a delicious way to get protein. Some brands of almond butter can be bland or an odd texture. Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter has a deliciously sweet, but subtle taste. The texture is creamy and easily spreadable. It’s a great addition to toast, fruit and many desserts.

The Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter is a staple in my pantry. I’m kind of addicted! Justin’s offers other flavors of almond butter, as well as other nut butters. They offer 1.15 oz squeeze packets of their different varieties. This is a great way to try out all of the different flavors before committing to a full jar of your favorite.

Where to Buy

Almond butter is expensive. I’m always looking for the best place to purchase Justin’s Almond Butter at a discounted price. It’s been on sale at select grocery stores, in the past. I have also seen coupons from time to time.

If you can’t find the almond butter on sale, I recommend Thrive Market. At the time I am writing this, on Justin’s Website, it is $13.99 for the 16 oz jar of Vanilla Almond Butter. While on Thrive Market, it is $11.25 for the same 16 oz jar.

Final Thoughts

The Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter is a staple in my pantry. I’m always reaching for it to pair with fruit or adding it to a homemade dessert. The price is high, but a little does go a long way. Just adding a spoonful of almond butter to your plate with some apple slices and chocolate chips makes such a satisfying snack. I also love to add the almond butter to toast in the morning because it is a quick and filling breakfast.

It’s a splurge item, but it adds so much to simple foods. Just writing this review is making me crave it! So, if you haven’t tried the Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter, I highly recommend you do. Be careful! You might become addicted.
