Hi guys, I’m back with another product review and this time it’s food related! If you know me personally, you’d know that I’m a huge foodie! I love snacking, junk food and I’m definitely one of those people who live to eat. When Barney Butter approached me to collaborate with them, I was really thrilled. I had never tried almond butter before, but I’ve always been a huge fan of Peanut butter (I used to finish a whole mini jar in one seating). I’d read and heard about a lot of recipes that involved almond butter but I could never get my hands on a jar, probably because it’s still a new product in India.
Barney Butter is a California based company that produces Almond Butter made from blanched Californian almonds. They’ve recently entered the Indian market and sell via amazon. They have a lot of variants in their product line, some of which are Crunchy, Smooth, Honey+Flax, Raw+Chia, Vanilla+Espresso, Cocoa+
Coconut, etc. All these flavours sound really interesting but since it’s something I’ve never tried before, I decided to go with the classic Crunchy variant.
The moment I saw the jar, I was super impressed with the packaging. It was bright and clean, the ingredients used and information was all very clear. I opened the jar and tore open the seal. My first impression was that the almond butter inside looked a lot like peanut butter, which was good because I love peanut butter. I decided to try it on a piece of toast. The consistency was exactly like that of crunchy peanut butter- smooth with bits of crunchy almond inside. I dug into the toast and I was really impressed with the taste. It tasted exactly like blanched almonds but with a lot more flavour. I also tried it out with bananas. I drizzled some almond butter over some cut pieces of banana and had it as an evening snack. Loved every bit of it.
Not only is this stuff really tasty, it’s also extremely nutritious. AND you can use it in a variety of ways. Use it as a base for smoothies, as a breakfast topping, a sandwich filling, a dip and also in your dishes while cooking (cheesecakes, cookies, etc). Or if you’re like me, just eat it straight out of the jar 😛
Thanks to globalization, we’re finally getting western products like these in India now and it’s about time we take advantage of it. The quality of the almond butter was really good. The price is a tad high, these retail for Rs 999 for 284 grams but are currently on sale for Rs 499 so if you’re reading this post, take advantage of the sale and go buy yourself a jar here!
