Justin’s Nut Butter Maple Almond Butter

Author: Healthnuttxo

I finally bought a jar of this stuff. I pass by it almost every time I go to Whole Foods (probably because I ALWAYS go down the nut butter aisle).

What stops me? This jar of Justin’s Nut Butter was so good, so why not buy another?

the 10 dollar price tag. My wallet cries everytime I buy nut butter. So pricy. But so worth it. Keep on crying, wallet.

So I bought this nut butter, and home it went. I opened it up and noticed considerably oil separation, so a little stirring and I stored it upside down ( a trick I learned from a friend! keeps the oil on the bottom!!) until I got to try it.

Yea I eat my nut butters with plastic forks. Don’t you?

The first thing I noticed- it was THICK. I tried this when I was already a bit thirsty, and that was a mistake. It literally stuck to my mouth. So, have some water on hand!

It had a mild sweetness, and mild maple flavor. The predominant flavor is definitely ALMOND. It has the gritty texture I find most almond butters do, and every now and then a rush of salty flavor would happen. It was a bit “pasty” but not bad.

And while it’s quite good, it’s not amazing. I wish it was sweeter, or saltier, or both. I wish I could taste the maple flavor more, because I’m not sure I would be able to say “this is MAPLE almond butter” if I was given a blind taste test. And you know me (or hopefully you have picked up on) and that I LOVE maple flavored things. (Like these cookies? YUMM!)

Overall, 3 stars. I don’t know if I would buy this again, especially since it is 10 dollars,  but I want to try more Justin’s Nut Butters! Just have to save up some money first…. =P

Whats the most you EVER spent on nut butter??

    I haven’t tried that one but I’m obsessed with justins chocolate hazelnut butter. I have to get the individual packets cause I tend to eat to much out of the jar. 🙂 But recently I’ve been having a lot of chocolate hazelnutbutter and banana wraps. I’ll have to try some of the other justins nutbutter varieties sometime.

  • Lindsay says:

    maybe it’s just me but I find Justin’s nut butters taste “oily”…more so than most nut butters.

  • Healthnuttxo says:

    have you tried mixing it and letting it sit a day and THEN eat it? sometimes I get that too with nut butters. and then the bottoms are really hard to spread and “dry” bc the top of the container had all the oil!

    i’m a sucker for nuttzo (like $13) but i justify it b/c there is SO much stuff in there … flax seeds & tons of different nuts!
