I love almonds, always have, always will. My family, however, has yet to try any almond butters because I couldn’t decide on a brand or type to try. You see, almond butters confuse me. Some say ‘raw’, others say ‘natural’, others are ‘roasted’ and they all look smooth which scares me since I’ve always loved almonds for their crunch. So, when I came across the PC Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter I knew this would be the one to try.

Maybe it’s just me but I think the PC Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter is the first almond butter I’ve come across that is actually crunchy and has chunks of almonds in it. That was all I needed to know before I grabbed it off the shelf for a product review for ThingsThatWeDo.com.


Product Review: What ingredients are in the PC Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter?

I’ll tell you the ingredients that are in my jar of PC Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter but I have to tell you that the list of ingredients is different than what I found on the website. Not sure why.

Anyhoo…my jar of PC Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter is made with dry-roasted almonds. That’s it. The only thing I can fault is that the almonds aren’t organic but I knew that when I bought it. Unlike some of the other peanut butters out there that are made with fillers galore, it’s always pleasing to me to find products that are made with only a few ingredients.

This PC Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter is made with only almonds that have been dry roasted. That’s pretty simple to me. Of course, if you prefer raw or natural almond butter, this PC Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter isn’t going to cut it for you. However, for me, this is exactly what I was hoping to find – an almond butter that featured chunky roasted almonds. Gosh, I’m salivating already!


Product Review: How does the PC Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter taste?

Crack open the jar of PC Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter and it looks exactly as I would expect. There’s a film of almond oil that has naturally separated from the heavier almonds. My organic peanut butter does the same thing and it’s an easy fix.

I stick a stainless steel fork into the jar and give it a few stirs and it’s all mixed and ready to go. As I did this, one thing I noticed is that the PC Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter seems a little less thick than peanut butter. It felt a little easier to stir than my organic peanut butter. Is this a complaint? Nope. In fact, it might be an asset because it was easier to fix and I’m guessing it’ll be easier to apply a thinner film of almond butter to my toast than peanut butter. Here’s an image of what the PC Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter in the jar freshly mixed.

I have a taste of the PC Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter plain with nothing in it and it tastes divine. The PC Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter has the signature roasted flavour and the almond bits are crunchy as they should be. Now, there’s no sugar or salt added to this PC Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter so you really get to the taste the roasted almonds standing on their own two legs.

Now, I like my organic peanut butter with honey and that’s exactly what I did with the PC Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter. I scooped out some of the almond butter and added honey to taste. I then mixed the two together and voila – perfection. Once you mix the two together, the PC Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter becomes a lot thicker than what it was originally. Have a look for yourself. The image on the right  is what the PC Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter looks like after I’ve mixed it with some honey.

Take a taste of the Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter with honey mixed in and I’ve hit a home run. The toasted crunchiness of the almonds paired with honey freshly mixed in is a perfect pairing. Decadent, rich, yet oh so healthy. I love the crunchy chunks of almonds in this Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter. It adds texture and dimension to breakfast and boy, am I happy.


Verdict:

Am I loving the Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter? YEP, you betcha I am. While I love my peanut butter, it sure is nice to add something new to my breakfast repertoire. The best part about the Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter is that in 1 tablespoon, I get 35% of my recommended daily intake of vitamin E. That is fantastic and I know peanut butter doesn’t give that to me, which is another reason why variety is ideal.

So, if you haven’t tried Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter before, I highly recommend it. I’m sure there are many of you who will tell me that the raw or natural almond butter is the way to go but I’ve just never been a big fan of the smooth nut butters. For now, this Blue Menu Just Almonds Crunchy Almond Butter gives me exactly what I’m looking for in an almond butter: rich, toasted goodness with some crunch. I just have to make sure I don’t eat it all in one day!
