Inspired By Peanut Butter Boy

by HEAB on September 7, 2010

Hello my almond butter loving friends. If you're new to HEAB, you may like to subscribe to my RSS feed or receive my posts via email. Thanks for reading!

After all of you shared some of your favorite ideas for savory hot cereal ideas on this post, I couldn’t wait to get back to Nashville and try some of them. First up was Peanut Butter Boy’s Spicy Hominy and Oats. Thanks Nick!

Look who came back into my life for this very special breakfast..

IMG_5916.JPG

Early on in my pregnancy, I had a very bad experience with my beloved tahini. I used to drizzle tahini in and on everything, but I got really sick after eating it one night and haven’t really wanted any since. Well, when we arrived home Saturday night, I had a sample of Artisana’s Cashini Butter waiting for me. It’s a blend of raw cashews, raw sesame seeds, and Celtic Sea Salt, and the jar said it would make a great peanut butter replacement. So, I decided to try it in Nick’s recipe this morning, and as far as the wing sauce goes, all I have to say is Emeril, I love you. I’m so glad we’ve been reunited ;)

Now onto my amazing breakfast…

IMG_5917.JPG

I followed Nick’s recipe, using a combo of oat bran and quick cooking grits. I also subbed water for the skim milk and the Cashini Butter for spicy peanut butter. I didn’t have any PB2 on hand, but I bet some Trader Joe’s peanut flour would have worked just as well, right Sarena? Unfortunately, I didn’t have any of that either. Oh well, my bowl was still delicious…and so filling. I’m stuffed! I loved the taste of the Cashini Butter, but the flavor isn’t as strong as regular PB. I think next time, I would add it on top rather than stir it in, so that I can taste it more with each bite. I also think this would taste amazing topped with a runny egg or perhaps even some crumbled blue cheese? So many possibilities!

So, speaking of Artisana, besides the Cashini Butter, I also received a few more goodies from the company while I was away…

IMG_5900.JPG

They now sell individual serving size squeeze packets. So exciting!! I also received a jar of Cacao Bliss and raw almond butter. Thanks Artisana! Would you like to share in the wealth? Simply leave a comment below telling me which of the company’s nut butters you would like to try, and I’ll send one lucky winner a squeeze pack…or two. ;)

Jessica @ How Sweet September 7, 2010 at 9:14 am

Cashini for sure!! And oh my gosh… so excited about the packets!

Jess @ Jessica is Getting Fit September 7, 2010 at 9:15 am

I want to try the Raw coconut butter and the Raw cacao bliss. Neither of which have I found in my local stores!

EmGrover September 7, 2010 at 9:19 am

I would love to try Walnut Butter…Actually I would love to try any and all of them!!! I am obsessed with their Coconut Butter.

Liza @ Health Nutting September 7, 2010 at 9:20 am

YUM! I would love to the cacao bliss and the walnut butter! :)

elleneatsbeets September 7, 2010 at 9:20 am

That cacao bliss and macademia butter look fabulous!!

anne September 7, 2010 at 9:21 am

I would love to try the cashini butter and the cacao bliss. wow!

Christin L. September 7, 2010 at 9:21 am

The macadamia nut butter or the cacao bliss, which I STILL haven’t tried!! :)

Ana September 7, 2010 at 9:21 am

Cool, coconut bliss in packet form! I would like to try that, or the cashini – if they have that one in squeeze packs!
Ana

jananib September 7, 2010 at 9:22 am

Sounds delicious!

Maren September 7, 2010 at 9:24 am

ahh cacao bliss looks amazing!!! p.s. my sweet potatoes were delicious! Thanks again! :)

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 9:49 am

Maren,
You’re welcome. So glad you enjoyed! :)

Kim September 7, 2010 at 9:24 am

Wait, did you put the wing sauce on your breakfast bowl? i’m not sure how I feel about that…

I’d have to say cacoa bliss or coconut butter!

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 9:49 am

Kim,
Yep, 1 TBSP wing sauce stirred in…and so good! :)

Kim September 7, 2010 at 11:54 am

I like you, Heather, but man, I just don’t know! It’s kind of freakin me out… :)

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 1:17 pm

Kim
Hehe – I’ve been known to do that to people. ;)

Evan Thomas September 7, 2010 at 9:25 am

I would love to try coconut butter. I’ve had the oil, and coconut creme, but never the butter!

Meg September 7, 2010 at 9:27 am

Oh my gaaahh! Nut butter HEAVEN! I always see this stuff in stores, but it’s SO expensive for my college-girl budget, haha, you lucky HEAB, you! :D

Umm I’d be happy to try ANY of them, really ;)

Thanks, Heather!

Grace September 7, 2010 at 9:28 am

Macadamia Cashew butter for real? Holy goodness. I need to try that. I have never tried their coconut butter either. They all look super yummy and now portable!

blueeyedheart September 7, 2010 at 9:28 am

Hooray — I love it when nut butters are available in sample packs. I hate buying a whole jar before I even know whether I like it! I’d definitely go for the cashew butter.

<3 <3

Bryana September 7, 2010 at 9:29 am

I’ve never tried any of the Artisana products, but I would LOVE to try either the walnut butter or the cacao bliss.

stacey September 7, 2010 at 9:29 am

macademia butter looks good!

melissa September 7, 2010 at 9:31 am

no brainer..raw cacao bliss :)

Felicia September 7, 2010 at 9:32 am

I’ve always wanted to try the cacao bliss!! They all look amazing. Love those little packets!

Katie September 7, 2010 at 9:33 am

I would LOVE to try the coconut butter. i put coconut milk on everything but i’m always scared off coconut butter by the price! :)

Shannon September 7, 2010 at 9:34 am

I’ve been dying to try the cacao bliss or almond butter.

Kathleen September 7, 2010 at 9:34 am

Yum! I’d love to try the Macadamia Butter, or maybe the Walnut butter. I love the Cashini, has a little hint of sweetness to it.

Danielle September 7, 2010 at 9:35 am

Such a tough decision! I would love to try the coconut butter!

Heather (Heather's Dish) September 7, 2010 at 9:36 am

i’m all about the cocoa bliss…holy yum!

S @ extremebalance.net/blog September 7, 2010 at 9:36 am

Chocolate–(Pardon me: cacao…). Everything else is secondary. ;)

Sünne September 7, 2010 at 9:37 am

I would love to try all of their products, naturally, since I can’t get any of them around here (sigh … limited nut butter choices are frustrating). Okay, picking just one I’d have to say Macadamia Cashew butter !

cr September 7, 2010 at 9:39 am

almond butter!!

Emily September 7, 2010 at 9:40 am

Any of them! Pretty please? :)

Whitney September 7, 2010 at 9:40 am

Those all look so fun and interesting! I’d love to try their coconut on walnut butter!

Mandy A September 7, 2010 at 9:40 am

Look at all of your goodies!!! :) I have been dying to try the Cacao Bliss!!!

Amy September 7, 2010 at 9:43 am

Cacao Bliss- of course!!!

Hillary September 7, 2010 at 9:43 am

Cacao Bliss sounds wonderful! I think Cashini would be interesting too.

Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) September 7, 2010 at 9:45 am

Well the cashini butter…of course! Great, now I am craving grits and I have NEVER put hot sauce on them. This actually surprises me! This is going on my “to make soon” list! I just made crepes with buckwheat and peanut flour…oh my, I am in total love of the peanut flour. I made need to go to a group for my addiction now. Have a great day Heather!

Lauren @ WWoB September 7, 2010 at 9:46 am

Sweet jesus I want to dry the macadamia and walnut butters! In third place I shall say Cacao bliss, because I am just so curious.

Kelsey September 7, 2010 at 9:47 am

Macadamia Butter or Cacao Bliss both sound so delicious! :)

Abby September 7, 2010 at 9:48 am

I would LOVE to try macademia nut butter. I haven’t figured out a good way of making it myself yet. :)

Dani September 7, 2010 at 9:49 am

Cacao Bliss sounds so delicious! Cashini also is one I would like to try.

Michelle (@ Housewife in the Raw) September 7, 2010 at 9:49 am

I would love the raw cocoa bliss. I haven’t seen that in the stores yet. Yum!

Mary Kate September 7, 2010 at 9:50 am

Yummy! I would love to try cacao bliss or the Macadamia Cashew Butter!

Raychel September 7, 2010 at 9:51 am

The Walnut Butter sounds really good! I haven’t tried very many nut butters yet because they’re so expensive (college…) but the walnut butter sounds especially good!

Tahlia September 7, 2010 at 9:52 am

I’d love to try the macadamia butter. =)

Meg September 7, 2010 at 9:57 am

Wow, that cashini butter sounds awesome! And walnut and macadamia nut butters mmmm!!
I’m definitely going to try that breakfast, I love grits but have never thought to put hot sauce on them!

Jill September 7, 2010 at 9:57 am

Hmmm…I think I’d like to try macadamia butter. Maybe I could make something resembling a white-chocolate macademia cookie-ish creation in the form of oatmeal? LOL. Hope you’re enjoying your first few days back in Nashville-I think you came back just in time to enjoy warm weather but no more crazy heat :-)

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 10:00 am

Jill,
Oh my gosh, the weather here in Nashville is beautiful. I’m loving it!

claudia September 7, 2010 at 9:57 am

I’d love to try the cacao bliss!

Gina September 7, 2010 at 9:58 am

That recipe sounds very interesting!

I’d die if I could try Coconut Butter or Cacao Bliss. I admire them on many blogs, but the price tag is just so much.

Jo @JAGSfitnessblog.com September 7, 2010 at 3:19 pm

They are so worth the price tag though! Over here I pay £14.99 for a jar of the coconut butter but it lasts for ages and is so amazing – it’s worth every penny :D

Marianne in Auburn September 7, 2010 at 9:59 am

Any of them!! I have never had any of Artisana’s products (can’t find and $$$ online). The walnut butter or the cashew butter would be be fun…heck any of them would be great to try!

JessicaR September 7, 2010 at 10:00 am

I would love to try the coconut butter!

Sally.H September 7, 2010 at 10:03 am

Mmmmmmmm………:P
Cashini butter and cacoa bliss sounds gooood!
Never tried Artisana butters and there cashew butter (never tried) sounds dreamy too!

lisampls September 7, 2010 at 10:04 am

i’m still feeling like the only foodie on the planet that hasn’t yet tried the cacao bliss, but, i think i’m more of a straight up nut butter kinda gal. as much as i adore a good chocolate fix…my tummy says, hand over the almond butter.

Katharine September 7, 2010 at 10:04 am

oo I’d LOVE to try the walnut butter

Annabel @ www.FeedMeImCranky.com September 7, 2010 at 10:05 am

Holy macadamia nut butter, HEAB!

Hanne September 7, 2010 at 10:05 am

I’d love to try the almond butter or the walnut butter! There are not a lot of nut butters available in Norway, so I kind of feel like I’m missing out :)

Jaime September 7, 2010 at 10:12 am

The cacao bliss and macadamia look AMAZING!!!

Red September 7, 2010 at 10:14 am

Ooohhhh the cacao bliss!! And the coconut butter!!

Alisha September 7, 2010 at 10:16 am

I would love to try the cacoa butter

Ali September 7, 2010 at 10:16 am

I’d love the cacoa bliss or coconut butter! They look delicious!

Kimmi September 7, 2010 at 10:16 am

I’d love to try the coconut butter! I can’t find it anywhere around here! Also I’d love to try a packet because then I could decide if it was worth spending the money to buy online!

Also that is one amazing breakfast! I always forget that savory oats are an option….

Heather September 7, 2010 at 10:16 am

I’m a new adventurer to the world of nut butters (cuz I’m guessing Nutella doesn’t count?) ;) and would love to try the cacao or the macadamia nut.

And how cute are those little squeeze packs?!?

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 10:18 am

Heather,
Nutella totally counts in my book. ;)

maren September 7, 2010 at 10:20 am

Ah the cacao bliss and the cashini both sound amazing!

Emma September 7, 2010 at 10:22 am

Cacao bliss and coconut!

Kelsey @ Clean Teen Kelsey September 7, 2010 at 10:23 am

Hey Heather! Just curious, how many jars of nut butter do you have in your house right now? I only ask because I somehow have recently obtained an OBSCENE amount of nut butters and I’m feeling quite guilty about it… lol. I, too, received the Artisana samples, so they only added to my stash! lol. :P I guess I would just like to know that I am not alone in my plethora of butters, haha.

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 12:10 pm

Kelsey,
It’s over 20, but some of them are for reader giveaways. Never feel guilty about a big nut butter stash! No shame in that. :)

Amy H September 7, 2010 at 10:24 am

Looks like you’re going to be swimming in some delicious butters for awhile! I would love to try Artisana’s cacao bliss…and the walnut butter sounds like it would be just perfect with a banana!!! Mmmm.

Christine September 7, 2010 at 10:25 am

WOWZA! Lucky, lucky girl!

Cashini sounds great–and different! I would probably chose that and macadamia — because I have expensive taste! Hmmm. Or all of them.

Lauren September 7, 2010 at 10:26 am

Macadamia butter looks good to me!

Keri September 7, 2010 at 10:26 am

I would LOVE to try the Cacao Bliss. I’ve heard such good things about it, and just haven’t ponied up the cash to buy some…..but maybe a sample would help with that :) Cashini sounds interesting, too, but I’m not sure if I’ll like it since I don’t love tahini?

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 12:28 pm

Keri,
The cashini is not as bitter as tahini, and the addition of cashews sweetens it up a bit. It’s pretty tasty. :)

Keri September 7, 2010 at 12:49 pm

That could definitely be good. I do like cashew butter, so maybe it’s worth a try :)

Carrie September 7, 2010 at 10:27 am

Walnut butter…or macadamia nut butter…or coconut butter…ok, they all look amazing!

Gloria September 7, 2010 at 10:28 am

Holy moly, Cashini sounds so great! and it’s fun to say :) I’d love to try it!

Heather September 7, 2010 at 10:30 am

I’d love to try Coconut Butter since you and CC Katie are such huge fans! Though really, they all sound good… macadamia nut, walnut, cocoa… send any one of these! :)

Holly @ couchpotatoathlete September 7, 2010 at 10:31 am

Macadamia Nut butter sounds delicious!

amberlynne September 7, 2010 at 10:32 am

I am very intrigued by coconut butter. I am not a big fan of the flakes but I love coconut milk. So I think it might be a toss up for the butter!

Rachel September 7, 2010 at 10:33 am

I want to try the cocoa bliss. It just sounds so happy!

Tay September 7, 2010 at 10:35 am

Walnut or coconut butter. As long as the coconut butter isn’t TOO coconutty ;-)

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 12:32 pm

Tay,
The coconut butter consists of coconut oil and coconut meat. If you don’t like the taste of coconut, then I don’t think you would enjoy it very much. :(

BakeMe September 7, 2010 at 10:38 am

Cashew or Cacao Bliss Plllleeeasseee!

Eliza September 7, 2010 at 10:40 am

I’ve always been curious about the macadamia nut butter, i’d love to try that one!

xx eliza

Traci September 7, 2010 at 10:41 am

I would love to try the macadamia butter. Yum!

esther September 7, 2010 at 10:43 am

I would love to try the Cashini!

Christina @ ilovefetacheese September 7, 2010 at 10:43 am

I’ve tried their coconut butter and I ADORE IT. I would be happy to try any of these other flavors…some of them sound amazing. especially the cacao bliss line!

I’m glad you can stomach tahini again! I’ve never been able to eat it alone – something about the bitterness turns my stomach! But I think cashini would be awesome!

Natalie September 7, 2010 at 10:44 am

Mmm, I would love to try the macadamia cashew butter or the pecan butter!

Shelby September 7, 2010 at 10:44 am

I would love to taste some Macadamia Nut Butter!!!

Nicole September 7, 2010 at 10:46 am

I won’t lie: I want the cacao bliss so I can compare it to Dark Chocolate Dreams. And I LOVE their coconut butter too.
Your oats looked interesting….not sure I could do hot sauce in the morning but I love that you did! Did the HEABlet kick around in there after that wake up call? lol

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 12:34 pm

Nicole,
I know you would love the Cacao Bliss, and yes, the HEABlet was kicking up a storm this morning…not sure if she likes spicy foods or not. ;)

Lori September 7, 2010 at 10:47 am

I have looked for the Cacao Bliss but have never been able to find it so I would want to try that most. I bet they all are delicious!

Taryn September 7, 2010 at 10:49 am

I have just been itching to try some cashew butter. Can you believe I NEVER have?… and it’s my absolute favorite nut, no contest!!

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 12:35 pm

Taryn,
No, I can’t. ;)

valerie September 7, 2010 at 10:49 am

i would looooove to try that cacao bliss one! sounds so good!

eatmovelove September 7, 2010 at 10:50 am

Ahh!

Cashini? What a neat name hey?

Gosh – I’d love to try their cashew…or I seen a Walnut there I think?!…oh, heck, I couldn’t choose – all of them! – you’d have to choose for me. I can’t make such difficult decisions!

claire September 7, 2010 at 10:53 am

I think my little bagelette (I’m pregnant too!) would love to try the raw walnut butter and the raw coconut butter! Wow hope I can find these squeeze packets!

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 12:36 pm

Claire,
Bagelette? Too cute. Congrats! :)

sarah September 7, 2010 at 10:53 am

I would love to try the cashini butter,
Great giveaway!

Amanda September 7, 2010 at 10:54 am

I would love to try the cacao bliss! I bet it would be delicious!

Anisha September 7, 2010 at 10:59 am

i’d love to try the cacao bliss and/or the cashew butter!

Valerie September 7, 2010 at 11:03 am

I would love to try the cashew and coconut butters!

Robin September 7, 2010 at 11:04 am

I would love to try any of them! I have never had any of this brand and am always looking for a new nut butter to love on!

Grace @ Front Porch Yoga September 7, 2010 at 11:06 am

Artisana Organic Raw Macadamia Cashew Butter and/or Cacao Bliss! Thanks for offering to share your new treasures, Heather! :)

marisa September 7, 2010 at 11:09 am

I’ve used coconut oil (BTW great to rub on the growing belly) but would like to try the coconut butter before buying the jar.

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 12:37 pm

Yes, I’ve heard coconut oil is great for the belly. Makes my skin so soft, and I love the smell! :)

Mallory September 7, 2010 at 11:09 am

i havent seen the cashini butter here :( sounds good!

the artisana products are so expensive…i often drool over them but canno afford then

StephORama September 7, 2010 at 11:10 am

Cashew or Almond, for sure, or really any of them! I’ve never tried any of their butters!

Toby September 7, 2010 at 11:11 am

I would love to try any one of Artisana’s butters! I’ve only recently made a complete change to my diet and I’ve been reading about Artisana all over the blogosphere, but have yet to try it.

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 12:38 pm

Toby,
Best of luck with the new dietary changes and in the giveaway. Artisana makes some really good products, and I hope you’re able to try them soon!

ann September 7, 2010 at 11:11 am

I would love to try the Cashini, never had anything like that.

Thanks.

Kristina September 7, 2010 at 11:12 am

I’d love to try the Raw Cacao Bliss or the Cashini butter! :)

Amisha September 7, 2010 at 11:12 am

I’ve been dying to try the cocoa bliss!

Christina September 7, 2010 at 11:16 am

Coconut butter for sure! As much as I looooove nut butters, I have yet to try coconut butter.

shelly September 7, 2010 at 11:16 am

I’d love to try to Cacao Bliss!

Sami September 7, 2010 at 11:16 am

ah!! i would love to try cacao blisss!!! thanks for sharing your wealth with us, heaby! if i win, i’ll be sure to try it on a roasted butt! ;)

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 12:39 pm

Sami,
Haha – that’s what I like to hear! ;)

Stephanie September 7, 2010 at 11:17 am

OMG I am SO ENVIOUS!! Those Artisana packets look so good!!!
In where I live, not only that there’s not much of Artisana available, it’s so expensive!

Sylvia September 7, 2010 at 11:19 am

Omigosh, I want to try the cashini butter and cacao bliss. Let me win, let me win, let me win… Pretty please? With a cherry on top? o:) How could you possibly resist that angelic face? ^___^

Tracy September 7, 2010 at 11:21 am

Walnut butter, pleeeeease!!!

jenny September 7, 2010 at 11:25 am

cashini, hands down. i’ve been eyeing it for a few months now in my health food store and the fact that you say it tastes kind of like pb just makes me want to get it even more. i havent touched pb in what seems like years!!!

Jennifer @ keepitsimplefoods September 7, 2010 at 11:25 am

Love the individual squeeze packs. I’m willing to try anything!

MoniMeals September 7, 2010 at 11:25 am

Lucky Duck!! I would love to try the cacao bliss and macadmai butters. yummmmm. :)

Kelly Michelle September 7, 2010 at 11:25 am

The cashini! it combines my two favorites!

Annie@stronghealthyfit September 7, 2010 at 11:25 am

I’m dying to try some coconut butter but cannot afford it on my budget right now. I actually just made some homemade “cashini” butter today, so that’s funny that you wrote about it! I’d never heard of Artisana’s version, and here I was thinking I was so original :-) I love the combo of cashews and sunflower seeds!

Kathi September 7, 2010 at 11:27 am

Cacao Bliss for sure. But I do have to admit it was difficult to make a choice since they all sound wonderful.

Bonnie September 7, 2010 at 11:29 am

Hi Heather! Fun treats to choose from. :) I would love to try the Coconut Butter and/or Cacoa Bliss Butter…I haven’t tried either one before and they look so fun to experiment with! It was hard not to just say the Almond Butter (such a solid, surefire staple) but I thought I’d be bolder this morning. Thanks for the offer!

Josie September 7, 2010 at 11:30 am

wow, that WALNUT BUTTER’s got my wheels turning!

Erin September 7, 2010 at 11:31 am

cashini or the macadamia nut butter. :) I love the coconut butters!

Angie September 7, 2010 at 11:31 am

I LOVE their products and would love to try the Cacao Bliss!

K September 7, 2010 at 11:32 am

Cashini! I love raw cashews and anything dipped in tahini. I will neeed all of the nut butter packets I can get as I move acorss the pond to Spain.

leanne September 7, 2010 at 11:37 am

I’ve actually been wanting to try Artisana’s Cacoa bliss and Justin’s almond chocolate butter. Both are difficult to find in Madison, WI. I’m drooling over all that nut butter.

I’d been wanting to try sunflower butter and just purchased it, but i don’t really care for it.

Carolina September 7, 2010 at 11:37 am

I’m quite intrigued by the cacao bliss.

Lauren September 7, 2010 at 11:38 am

I still haven’t tried coconut butter…would love to!!

Heather September 7, 2010 at 11:40 am

I definitely want to get my hands on some of that cashini! I love my cashews and sesame seeds. :)

Lisa September 7, 2010 at 11:41 am

I would love to try any of it! I would gladly take any goodies that you would like to share.

Kimberly Lee September 7, 2010 at 11:41 am

I am eager to try the Raw Cacoa Bliss.

Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) September 7, 2010 at 11:41 am

you lucky dog, i mean lucky pregnant lady :) nice score!!

cocoa bliss please!!!

xxoo

Ellen September 7, 2010 at 11:43 am

i really like savory oats, but i never want to eat them for breakfast. they make a great cold weather lunch with a runny egg on top though!

i’ve been dying to try their cacao bliss (and, actually, all their products. walnut butter sounds like just my kind of thing)! i can never justify the cost though. i am but a lowly college student, ya know?

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 1:16 pm

Ellen,
Yes, I remember those days…trust me, I had no $12 jars of nut butter sitting in my dorm room. Best of luck with the giveaway. :)

Emily September 7, 2010 at 11:50 am

Macadamian butter?!?! That sounds amazing.

Rachel (tea and chocolate) September 7, 2010 at 11:51 am

I haven’t had savory oats in a while. Nooch is always an essential ingredient for me. :)

All of their products sound amazing. I’ve never tried coconut butter or macadamia butter so those two are at the top of my list.

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 1:16 pm

Rachel,
Nooch…brilliant!

Alex September 7, 2010 at 11:51 am

I’ve only tried the coconut butter and it’s amazing. I’d love to try the cacao bliss

Katelyn September 7, 2010 at 11:52 am

I would love love LOVE to try the coconut butter please!!! Or the cacao bliss?? … hmmm… hard choice! :)

Paige @ Running Around Normal September 7, 2010 at 11:53 am

Oh my! What loot! That’s awesome that they’re selling individual packets now.
I think I’d most like to try the Cacao Bliss – I’ve head so many great opinions of it!

Jenn September 7, 2010 at 11:58 am

I’d love to try the pecan butter. I love pecans and have never seen it as a nut butter in my stores!

Katie September 7, 2010 at 12:01 pm

I’ve ALWAYS wanted to try the cacao bliss!

Virginia September 7, 2010 at 12:07 pm

That Cashini butter looks amazing!

Ashley September 7, 2010 at 12:12 pm

oooh the cashini sounds amazing!!!

Amber Shea @Almost Vegan September 7, 2010 at 12:12 pm

I’ve been dying to try their macadamia butter!

Julia September 7, 2010 at 12:14 pm

I would love to try to coconut butter or the cacao bliss! I’ve wanted to try them for a while but I’ve been afraid of spending so much on a jar only to not like it.

Lindsey September 7, 2010 at 12:15 pm

Oh man! You are so lucky! My friend and I were just talking yesterday about how we wish we could get all of those wonderful samples! As college kids, we have to stretch teh budget and sometimes have to settle for plain Wal-Mart PB or AB because, well…you understand :)

So, then, I would love to try one I’ve never had before- maybe walnut or coconut? Or just Almond butter because I am IN LOVE with it :)

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 1:19 pm

Yes, I so understand. I’m very grateful for all the samples, but sometimes there’s just nothing better than plain old all natural crunchy peanut butter PB from Trader Joe’s, and you can’t beat the price – less than $2!

Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter September 7, 2010 at 12:18 pm

WALNUT butter! Walnuts are my favorite nuts to chew on, so I’m sure the butter would be amazing.

steph September 7, 2010 at 12:22 pm

Macadmia Butter!! I wonder if it would make for some killer dark chocolate sqaure sandwiches?? Or freezer nut butter cups…

But I could settle for cacao bliss ; )

Nikki September 7, 2010 at 12:26 pm

Yum! The coconut butter sounds really good to me today! I’d try that one.

Therese September 7, 2010 at 12:27 pm

I’m eating Artisana coconut butter with my lunch as I type! I’ve been wanting to try walnut butter, cashew, pecan, and macadamia butter haha. I think walnut would be my top choice, though.

Gina G September 7, 2010 at 12:30 pm

I would be moreee than thankful for any of them, but if i had a choice i would love love love to try the cacao bliss or Macadmia Butter!

thankyou so much Heather! :)

julie September 7, 2010 at 12:41 pm

i would TOTALLY love the cacao flavor! i’ve been on such a chocolate kick as of late and i think this would hit the spot :)

Carol September 7, 2010 at 12:42 pm

I would love to try the cacao bliss!

Morgan September 7, 2010 at 12:43 pm

Is that Macadamia butter I spy? I’d LOVE to try some of that!

Mallory September 7, 2010 at 12:44 pm

i’ve been wanting to try the coconut butter forever now! lucky you with all of those samples:)

Nhung September 7, 2010 at 12:46 pm

Wow it sure looks like heaven! But I would love to try the coconut butter and the walnut and cacao bliss. Sounds so yummy!

Lisa September 7, 2010 at 12:49 pm

Cashew butter!!! I can not get it where i live!! Great gifts :)

Dana September 7, 2010 at 12:57 pm

The cocoa bliss sounds absolutley amaaaazing!
Choco-holic… and I’ve never tried it before!

Sarah R September 7, 2010 at 12:58 pm

I wasn’t sure if you were ever going to start using Tahini again! I would love to try their coconut butter. I made my own after you did and it was great, but I would also like to try the real thing :)

Ricki September 7, 2010 at 12:59 pm

I would love to try the coconut butter or the cacao bliss! Although, the macadamia nut butter sounds amazing too!

Jess September 7, 2010 at 1:00 pm

I would love to try Cacao Bliss. I’ve been eyeing it for awhile!!

Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather September 7, 2010 at 1:01 pm

The cacoa bliss sounds delish! What an awesome thing to come home to.

kathleen September 7, 2010 at 1:02 pm

i’m actually curious about their walnut butter. i’ve never seen it anywhere.

Jess September 7, 2010 at 1:03 pm

I’ve never heard of coconut butter!! I’d like to try that or the macadamia butter…chocolate covered macadamia nuts are my faaaaave :)

Heather @ Side of Sneakers September 7, 2010 at 1:04 pm

I am DYING to try coconut butter!!! And macadamia butter :)

Lindsay September 7, 2010 at 1:05 pm

I would love to try the Cacoa Bliss!! :)

Katie September 7, 2010 at 1:08 pm

I’ve always wanted to try the cacao bliss! Sounds like frosting to me. :-)

Kara M. September 7, 2010 at 1:08 pm

I’d really like to try coconut butter, or maybe macadamia cashew :)

Song September 7, 2010 at 1:12 pm

wow… still haven’t tried coconut butter. Have NO idea how it tastes like!!! I got introduced to AB by you and LOVE it!! but now,,, it’s time to explore the new one! : )

Katheryn September 7, 2010 at 1:13 pm

I would love to try the almond butter, but I haven’t yet tried any of their products, so anything would go!

Abigail September 7, 2010 at 1:52 pm

I want to try the cashew or walnut butters. Of course the raw almond butter sounds amazing too.

Kristen D September 7, 2010 at 1:53 pm

I would LOVE to try the Cacao bliss and either the macadamia butter or well any of their nuts butters of course!

MorganAK September 7, 2010 at 1:55 pm

Def. the cacao bliss!!!!

Nicole September 7, 2010 at 1:55 pm

I’d love to try the Cacao bliss…or the Macademia nut.

Stef September 7, 2010 at 1:56 pm

Hey,
I think squeeze packs are so awesome. Unfortunately Germany is not that far yet..well we’re not far at all with nut butters at all. here you can get crunchy and creamy PB that’s it. But at least that leaves me with less choice since it’s hard to try to decided what i would try ;-)
But I think from the Artisana Bunch I’d love to try Coconut Butter since I love coconut!

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 2:00 pm

Stef,
In my opinion, sometimes crunchy PB is all you need. ;)

Stef September 7, 2010 at 2:19 pm

Hey,
yeah you’re right “sometimes crunchy PB is all you need”, but the key word here being sometimes! If it’s all you get it tends to get boring. Of course I can always make my own but I find it difficult to decided on a recipe to make my own if I don’t know what it tastes like at all. But lucky me my mom is working in Canada at the moment so I get her to bring me different nut butters. Last time she brought Cashew Butter which definitely tasted different from what I was expecting but still good (especiall blended with Tofu and Banana)!

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 2:29 pm

Stef,
Aren’t moms the best?

Paige September 7, 2010 at 2:05 pm

I’d love to try the Raw cacao bliss. I’ve never heard of the Cashini butter that sounds intriguing as well!

Maria September 7, 2010 at 2:10 pm

I love Artisana’s coconut butter–sadly it’s the only one I’ve tried (because it’s pretty pricey), but I would love to try more, especially cacao bliss :)

Lauren September 7, 2010 at 2:15 pm

I’d love to try the Coconut butter & Cacao bliss – they both look D.I.V.I.N.E! :o )

Yin September 7, 2010 at 2:15 pm

I would love to try the Cacao Bliss — looks delicious!

Mike September 7, 2010 at 2:23 pm

that macadamia butter sounds like a different twist than a normal butter and delicious

alanna September 7, 2010 at 2:28 pm

I’d love to try the Walnut butter and the coconut butter. I’ve never tried Artisana, but I was a little dissappointed with some of the brands I did try.

Thanks!

Scott in Ohio September 7, 2010 at 2:31 pm

Yes, ma’am. I’d love to sample some Artisana goodies.

Anna (twelve22) September 7, 2010 at 2:37 pm

Packets! Well, I STILL have never tried coconut butter, but walnut butter sounds pretty good, too!

Ashlee September 7, 2010 at 2:38 pm

Cacao Bliss sounds yummy! :) I also think I need to be investing in some Emeril’s Wing Sauce!

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 5:04 pm

Ahslee,
It is yummy, and yes, invest in some Emeril’s. I’m not even a big fan of hot sauce, and I love that stuff!

Gloria September 7, 2010 at 2:52 pm

I’d love to try Cacao Bliss!

Laura T. September 7, 2010 at 3:06 pm

ive been dyin to try the coconut butter that ive seen all over the blog world!

ashB September 7, 2010 at 3:13 pm

the coconut butter for sure!!

Emily September 7, 2010 at 3:20 pm

Cashini butter looks and sounds amazing….I’d love to give it a proper debut in my oatmeal!

Erica September 7, 2010 at 3:22 pm

I would love to try the coconut butter or the cocoa bliss! Definitely wouldn’t be too picky though– they all sound delicious!

Courtney (greeneyedrunner) September 7, 2010 at 3:24 pm

omg lucky girl! i’m glad you had an amazing babymoon, all the trips to the dairy bar made my mouth water!

i would LOVE to try their plain coconut butter, as i’ve never had it before!

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 5:08 pm

Courtney,
Thanks for reading, and oh the Dairy Bar…I miss it. :(

Caitlin September 7, 2010 at 3:35 pm

I want to try Cacao Bliss! It looks amazing–like healthy chocolate frosting :) The macadamia butter looks great too as mac nuts are my favorite!

Teri September 7, 2010 at 3:36 pm

I LOVE all nut butters, but I would like to try coconut butter. I tried to make it myself once…it was an epic FAIL! :)

Laura September 7, 2010 at 3:42 pm

I’ve always wanted to try coconut butter but with the price as high as it is and my pretty sad college student salary…I’ve help back!

laura September 7, 2010 at 3:43 pm

hmm cacao bliss or cashini butter? tough choice ;)

Neena September 7, 2010 at 3:43 pm

I would love to try any of the butters but especially the cacao bliss and the macadmia nut! Yum!

Margie September 7, 2010 at 3:48 pm

I would love to try the cacao bliss & the coconut butter! Delicious!

Shannon September 7, 2010 at 3:48 pm

oh my, artisana has squeeze packs?!??!?!? mmm, cahini sure sounds fun :) i’ve also wanted to try their coconut butter, and of course i wouldn’t turn down the cacao bliss!

AllieNic (Frisky Lemon) September 7, 2010 at 3:49 pm

I’ve always wanted to try to cacao bliss! I just splurged big time and bought a jar of the coconut butter…best…idea…EVER. I’m definitely in love.

Alyssa September 7, 2010 at 3:49 pm

Heather, I got a similar package and was in complete heaven! I haven’t tried their raw almond butter yet, but I have a feeling that will be my favorite!

~Alyssa

Monica September 7, 2010 at 3:53 pm

I’ve always wanted to try coconut butter (:

Sara B September 7, 2010 at 3:55 pm

Yum! I would love to try the coconut butter and the cacao bliss! I hope my health food store starts carrying the packets!

Lindsay McAlester September 7, 2010 at 3:59 pm

I have never tried Coconut Butter and I am VERY intrigued! :)

Katie September 7, 2010 at 3:59 pm

Good old almond butter-hard to go wrong with that!

kelsey@snackingsquirrel.com September 7, 2010 at 4:01 pm

walnut butter is my favorite from artisana…i guess i cant say id love to try that one since i already have.. but id surely love to re-try it ;)

otherwise the macadamia one would be next on my list <3

xoxo

ps. the squeeze pack idea is a trend i hope many companies continue jumping on board with. i dont understand why the idea didnt come out sooner.. plus it'll help get more organic nut butters to replace the kraft ones in every single cafe/restaurant!

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 5:14 pm

Kelsey,
Regarding your p.s. – I concur. :)

Emma September 7, 2010 at 4:01 pm

I’ve seen that brand but have never been brave enough to try raw nut butter! I would love to try walnut butter.

Jessica Daly September 7, 2010 at 4:01 pm

I would LOVE to try out any packs but that cacao bliss looks extra yummy!

M.Rose September 7, 2010 at 4:03 pm

I would love to try any of them, the only Artisana I have been fortunate enough to get my hands on is the Coconut Butter, which is super yum!

Mary @ Bites and Bliss September 7, 2010 at 4:05 pm

The Macadamia butter!! Ohhhh that’d be incredible!

Caitlin (EatFeats) September 7, 2010 at 4:11 pm

Oh I saw these at Whole Foods a couple of weeks ago, and spent five minutes trying to decide on a flavor before giving up. It was so overwhelming! I think the Walnut Butter sounds very interesting, and I also wanted to try the Cacao Bliss because I always see it on blogs.

Kami September 7, 2010 at 4:14 pm

Walnut, coconut, or almond butter would be my choices! I can’t find these in a regular grocery store?! Is that even normal? I look all the time thinking ok maybe they have gotten it in, but NOPE! :)

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 5:12 pm

Kami,
I can’t find the Artisana nut butters here in Nashville except our Whole Foods does carry their coconut butter. As far as regular grocery stores go, you can normally find almond butter in the health food section, and even most Wal-Marts carry it in the peanut butter section. However, walnut and coconut area little harder to come by. :)

Brandae September 7, 2010 at 4:14 pm

I want to try them all! First choice would be the coconut butter. It all looks fantastic.

Rachael September 7, 2010 at 4:22 pm

Man, I would LOVE to try macadamia cashew butter! It sounds like something I couldn’t eat every day, so a little squeezy pack would be the perfect trial size! =)

Ellie September 7, 2010 at 4:22 pm

HEAB! I would love to try the cacao bliss or coconut butter, I have always wanted to try the coconut butter but have been hesitant to buy a whole jar for fear of not liking it.

Rika September 7, 2010 at 4:25 pm

coconut butter would be amazing!

sarah l September 7, 2010 at 4:31 pm

i have been *truly longing* to try the coconut butter! it is just so darn expensive… and i’m afraid that if i bit the bullet and bought it once, i’d be hooked and have to *keep* buying it. but gosh, i would love love love a sample!

kyla September 7, 2010 at 4:31 pm

Mmm cocoa bliss or the coconut butter!

Alison (Fueling for Fitness) September 7, 2010 at 4:44 pm

That breakfast looks and sounds delicious!! I will have to give it a try – thanks, Heather. :)

As for flavours… if I had to pick, it’d be a close call between Cacao Bliss or Coconut Butter – I’ve never tried coconut butter before in my life (at least not consciously). :)

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 5:09 pm

Alison,
You’re welcome. :)

Dana September 7, 2010 at 4:46 pm

The coconut butter seems so multi-purpose that I am dying to try it! Unfortunately, they do not sell it where I live, so I am stuck without it. The little munchkins that I babysit love coconut, so I think it would be fun and cute to make them little snacks with the coconut butter!

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 5:10 pm

Dana,
Don’t tell Artisana I told you this, but it’s really simple to make your own coconut butter: http://heathereatsalmondbutter.com/recipes/coconut-butter/

jen September 7, 2010 at 5:06 pm

oh man, i’ve never tried any hazelnut or macadamia or walnut butters. any of those would be bangin’!

Krystina September 7, 2010 at 5:07 pm

I’ve ALWAYS wanted the coconut butter. Mmm.

Leah September 7, 2010 at 5:18 pm

Wow…I’d love to try Cacao Bliss. Heard so much about it through all the blogs!

J September 7, 2010 at 5:23 pm

Cashini for sure!!!! I am tahini obsessed (I went through a 1 lb. container in errr…3 days this week)!

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 7:23 pm

J,

Impressive! ;)

Michelle C September 7, 2010 at 5:33 pm

ohhh macadamia nut butter?? yes please! Also cacao bliss!!

Stacey K. September 7, 2010 at 5:37 pm

I would love to try cocoa bliss! Yum!

Izzy September 7, 2010 at 5:37 pm

Ahhh I’d go for ANY, but I honestly have to say I’d LOVE to try cashew butter…I’ve never had cashew butter PERIOD, so trying amazing Artisana’s would be awesome :)

izzyy
xoxx

lindsay September 7, 2010 at 5:54 pm

walnut, macadameia, almond all the nuts and seed butters.. yummy! would love to try them all. Heather- do you use the reg Quaker Grits and have you tried any other brand? Thank you for being so generous and sharing your stash!

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 7:22 pm

Lindsay,
I have the Quaker quick cooking grits – the one in the canister that take 5 minutes to cook on the stove-top, and no, I’ve never tried any other brand. However, when I run out of the Quaker stuff, I’d like to try some polenta.

And always happy to share my stash. :)

Rowie September 7, 2010 at 5:55 pm

cacao butter, AND coconut butter?!!!!!?! Oh. my. goodness!!! If I were to have a packet of either of these I don’t know that they’d make it onto/into anything, I’d just squeeze them into my mouth! YuM! It must be so exciting to receive surprise packages of tasty things all the time!

Love your blog!

http://rowieonpendertime.blogspot.com/

abbey September 7, 2010 at 5:56 pm

Almond Buttah!

Barbara September 7, 2010 at 5:57 pm

Oh cacao blisss! Yes PLease!!!

jen September 7, 2010 at 6:02 pm

jeepers – being the nut butter freak i am, i wouldn’t be picky:-)!! i’d be happy with any, but the cashini would definitely be new to me and i haven’t tried the walnut & macadamia yet either – thanks for the chance to win.

rebecca September 7, 2010 at 6:10 pm

i have wanted to try their coconut butter for ages now but every time in the store i just can’t bring myself to spend $10+, i know it would be so worth it though!

kelsey September 7, 2010 at 6:10 pm

that recipe looks so good!! i think i’ll try it soon :]
i really want to try cashew and macadamia nut butters!

Lauren September 7, 2010 at 6:13 pm

I’d love to try the coconut butter. I love coconut oil, but never had the buttah!

Jennifer@ knackfornutrition September 7, 2010 at 6:17 pm

Squeeze packs!? Oh no they didn’t!!! I want to try the coconut butter so bad!

M @ meandchew September 7, 2010 at 6:27 pm

Caco Bliss or almond butter!!! Mmmmmmm!

Stefanie September 7, 2010 at 6:31 pm

The Cacao Bliss would be interesting to try. Your oats look good.

Brenda September 7, 2010 at 6:36 pm

I would love to try Artisana’s brand of nut butters. They all sound yummy!

Charlotte September 7, 2010 at 6:47 pm

Ohhh, coconut butter. Always fondle it at the store and have never been willing to fork over the cash and actually invest in a jar of my own. But when I do, that’ll be the day.

martha September 7, 2010 at 6:52 pm

Mmm def the Cacao bliss… I lurve Nutella but can’t deal with all the scary ingredients, so CB has been on my wish list…

lindsay (goodiesgalore September 7, 2010 at 6:54 pm

cacaoooooooooo

Mary Kara September 7, 2010 at 7:04 pm

Mmmm… cacao bliss or coconut butter! want to try so bad!

Kelly September 7, 2010 at 7:07 pm

Yummy! I would love to try the macadamia nut butter.

Lisa September 7, 2010 at 7:18 pm

The cacao bliss definitely!

elaine September 7, 2010 at 7:19 pm

oh wing sauce! YUM!! i use frank’s, but am definitely going to try Emeril’s next. I feel like the whole time I’m eating it I will be hearing “bam! bam bam bam!” in my head haha. as for the nut butters, cacao bliss is at the top of my list!

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 7:30 pm

Elaine,
I love Emeril’s sauce – the ingredient list is so simple. Try it. :)

Marci September 7, 2010 at 7:23 pm

Def. the coconut butter, i seen it in the stores but to buy a whole jar and not like it wold be a shame, I’d love to try it before spending a good 13.00 on the stuff.

BroccoliHut September 7, 2010 at 7:24 pm

Oh man, you have no idea how happy this post makes me. First, I had no idea that Artisana made such a thing as Cashini–glorious! And, they’re making squeeze packets now?! I love their raw almond butter.

Shannon September 7, 2010 at 7:24 pm

Cashini Butter, Cocao Bliss, or Macadamia Nut Butter would be my top three picks. Sorry, couldn’t pick just one. :-)

Ashley September 7, 2010 at 7:26 pm

I’m DYING to try either coconut butter or macadamia nut butter (oooooooh-imagine them together!)

araceli September 7, 2010 at 7:29 pm

I would love to try any of the flavors! I love surprises!

Amanda Y. September 7, 2010 at 7:31 pm

Cacao bliss for sure!

Jae September 7, 2010 at 7:34 pm

Im desperate to try the macadamia butter, coconut butter and cacao bliss <3

JFlo September 7, 2010 at 7:34 pm

I would LOVE to try the Coconut butter… I have never seen these in any of my stores. However, I have purchased Justin’s squeeze packs and they work out perfectly for my out of town oatmeal breakfasts on the go!

Heather September 7, 2010 at 7:45 pm

Definitely the Raw Cacao Butter and the Raw Coconut Butter!!

A.B. September 7, 2010 at 7:46 pm

Oooo! Cacao Bliss would be divine! I’ve never seen that anywhere around here, but I really want to try it! :D Thank you!

Laura September 7, 2010 at 7:52 pm

I would love to try coconut butter and cacao bliss – can’t go wrong with something chocolatey right?

Kristen @ Kristen, Sweetly September 7, 2010 at 8:03 pm

Oh, man. Walnut butter! After reading about you and Ash at The Edible Perspective making nut butters, I have big plans to try every kind under the sun. Omega 3s… in buttered form? Yes please. :-)

Danielle September 7, 2010 at 8:08 pm

Ugh! I would absolutely die for a sample of any chocolate nut butter. I just moved to Virginia Beach and I can’t seem to find nut butter (other than peanut/regular almond butter) anywhere. I practically sit and drool over all of your nut butter flavors and recipes. I see I have a lot of competition, so I will gladly take a suggestion if no sample :)

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 8:29 pm

Danielle,
Have you ever thought making your own? It’s super easy, and you can add cocoa powder and sweetener for a chocolate version.

http://heathereatsalmondbutter.com/recipes/homemade-nut-butter/

http://heathereatsalmondbutter.com/recipes/coconut-butter/

Christine September 7, 2010 at 8:15 pm

I’d love to try some coconut butter…. read your post on making homemade, but didn’t want to deal with washing the food processor, so I tried it in the vitamix. Bad idea– I ended up with coconut sand and it looked like a snowglobe had exploded in my kitchen. Almost makes $8/jar seems reasonable (you know, or makes me consider washing the food processor)

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 8:30 pm

Christine,
Oh gosh, I’d much rather clean out the food processor. Trying to clean around those Vita-Mix blades is such a pain. Sorry, the homemade coconut butter didn’t work for you. Good luck in the giveaway! :)

Jessica September 7, 2010 at 8:25 pm

I’d love to try Walnut or Macadamia! I’m not a huge almond fan (blasphemy, I know) but walnuts are a weakness for me.

Lindsey September 7, 2010 at 8:39 pm

I would LOVE to try Artisana’s Cacao Bliss!

Lindsey September 7, 2010 at 8:42 pm

I would love, love, love to try them ALL!! Fo sho! But I think Coconut Butta would be the bomb-diggitay!!

katherine September 7, 2010 at 8:42 pm

Where can I buy the packets???

brilliant

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 8:47 pm

Katherine,
I’m not sure if they’re available anywhere online yet. The Artisana folks don’t even have them up on their website. However, I hear that some Whole Foods are carrying them. Unfortunately, mine is not. :(

katherine September 7, 2010 at 8:54 pm

Awwwwwwww man! They would be perfect portion control, as I tend to be rather generous with my coconut butter portions! :-)

Mary September 7, 2010 at 8:48 pm

On some wing sauce and a prayer, do you have some Cashini you can share?

HEAB September 7, 2010 at 8:53 pm

Mary,
Haha – I love it. You definitely win points for creativity. :)

Mary September 7, 2010 at 9:03 pm

Or for being a complete cornball… more likely!

Mandiee September 7, 2010 at 8:55 pm

When I recently (finally!) tried Artisana’s Raw Coconut Butter, I fell in love. Needless to say, I’ve been wanting to try Cacao Bliss ever since. Chocolate + Love? Might that be what heaven is like? :P Thanks for the opprotunity, HEAB! You’re so generous to give away some of your buttahs.

Heather September 7, 2010 at 9:05 pm

If I won, you get to choose, as I have not had the pleasure of trying any of their products. The closest Whole Foods is an hour away :( Though it sounds like some of the products they sell at Whole Foods, would be worth the trip!

Jen September 7, 2010 at 9:14 pm

I really want to try the Macadamia Butter and Cacao Bliss! The former because I love eating those nuts whole (or baked in cookies, mmm), and the latter because it seems to be everyone’s favorite. Oh, and I want to compare it to PB&co’s Dark Chocolate Dreams.

Ilana September 7, 2010 at 9:17 pm

How could one person even pick!!? But … well … the chocoholic in me says the cacao bliss, or the coconut butter!!

ari September 7, 2010 at 9:18 pm

walnut butter! walnut butter!

Erica September 7, 2010 at 9:24 pm

I didn’t know that Artisana made squeeze packs! I’d love to try the Cashini butter.

Emily September 7, 2010 at 9:37 pm

I can’t believe how many comments there are here! Well, actually I can because this stuff is supposed to be insanely good. I would love to try the cacao bliss or the coconut butter or the almond butter! I have been reading about Artisana for a long time but have never tried it! I just started college across the country from my home state and I desperately miss special healthy treats! Thanks so much for offering to share the wealth!

Nana Debrah-Karikari September 7, 2010 at 9:38 pm

ooh I would love to try their cashew butter or cacao bliss!

hope all is well!

-Nana

Sara September 7, 2010 at 9:43 pm

I would LOVE to try the cacao bliss! They all sound soo delicious though :)

Sarah September 7, 2010 at 9:55 pm

macadamia, walnut, cashini… GIVE ME NUTSSSSSSSSS!

nut butter fascination=not humanly normal ;)

I’ve heard so much about Cacao Bliss; it’d be nice to try it out.

Fallon September 7, 2010 at 10:09 pm

It is a toss up between the walnut butter and the cashini butter!

Danielle September 7, 2010 at 10:10 pm

Cashini! Now you’ve got me intrigued :)

Michelle September 7, 2010 at 10:16 pm

Well as you knw after seeing how much you LOVE almond butter I had to try! And I as well have falling in love with it! Gotta have some everyday! :) But I would love to try the cacao bliss! Anything chocolate is heaven! And of course I would love to try their version of almond butter!

Veronica September 7, 2010 at 10:18 pm

the macadamia nut butter looks so yummy!

clare September 7, 2010 at 10:22 pm

oh my gosh cashini! ive never heard of that! would LOVE to try. anything with cashews makes me :)

i havent had their plain coconut butter either. the choco coco is so good.

Namaste Gurl September 7, 2010 at 10:33 pm

Good evening, Heather…and HEABlet, of course :)

I think i’d love to try cashini and or cacoa bliss (still haven’t tried that one…not liking the price tag….just got more coconut butter, so for now that’s it!)….I’m an indecisive person, so can’t decide on one.

I hope i’m the “lucky winner” :)

Samantha September 7, 2010 at 10:34 pm

I have to say I’m very curious about the coconut butter and the cacao bliss!

Alyson September 7, 2010 at 10:41 pm

Every time I go to Central Market I look at the Cacao Bliss but talk myself out of the splurge. I’d love to try that and anything else you want to toss in! :)

Hayley September 7, 2010 at 10:42 pm

Trying to choose was really nerve-wracking, but….

cacao bliss.

caronae September 7, 2010 at 10:58 pm

I’ve been dying to try plain old coconut butter for months now but have balked at the idea of shelling out 13 or so dollars for a jar. So I need to win! :)

I also want to try the cacao bliss…and the walnut butter and, well, pretty much everything!

lz September 7, 2010 at 11:05 pm

I would love to try the coconut butter and the cacao bliss!

Laura Duggan September 7, 2010 at 11:11 pm

I’d love to try any of them, but of course have a special interest in trying almond or walnut. Yum!!

STEPHANIE T September 7, 2010 at 11:19 pm

Macadamia nut sounds really interesting to try!!

stephanie September 7, 2010 at 11:24 pm

oh cashini sound great tooo!!! Mmmm, im dreaming of nut recipes…

Mimi (Damn the Freshman 15) September 7, 2010 at 11:44 pm

I’m getting funny menatl images…

“So, Artisana team…what do we make now?”
“I know! Macadamia-Cashew Butter!”
“Nah, those Maranatha bastards beat us to it.”
“Hmm…TAHINI AND CASHEWS!”
“Genius!”

But I’d go wild over the walnut or macadamia butter!

Katie September 7, 2010 at 11:48 pm

Much as I poo-poo the weird nut butters, that cashini stuff is HEAVEN. I got a jar of it too, and I love it.

Heather McClees September 8, 2010 at 12:01 am

HI HEAB! JUST WANTED TO SAY THANKS AGAIN FOR VISITING MY BLOG! PLEASE COME BACK ANYTIME!:) I would love to get free samples like this from Artisana for my blog! Any ideas on thiS?

I would also love to try the Cashini and raw hazlenut butter! I’ve never heard of the Cashini!! I, like so many, LOVE the raw coconut butter by the company and the cacao bliss is okay, but I would really like to try a nut butter! Thanks so much!:)

nicole September 8, 2010 at 12:16 am

Cacao bliss- it’s almost oatmeal season!

sharon September 8, 2010 at 1:04 am

hmm…cacao bliss. I have never tried that before! Sounds like a nice topping for morning oatmeal! :)

elise September 8, 2010 at 1:17 am

whatttt!!! i havent even heard of half those blends!! cashini?!?! wow. ok, i think i will take anything i can get at this point (you have like one million entries above, so i think my odds are pretty slim).

sorry the preggo made your tahini love wane for a bit…im sure itll come back in full force soon enough. im just getting back into the swing of things post honeymoon and its kinda rough. im still in denial about my re-entry into the real world…

Mary September 8, 2010 at 2:03 am

cacao bliss and macadamia nut sound good :)

LeeAnn September 8, 2010 at 2:18 am

I want to try the macadamia cashew butter-I love making tropical oats bowls with pineapple or mango, and this would be the missing nut butter link to tropical oat bliss!

barb September 8, 2010 at 2:44 am

I would love to try the cacao bliss or thr macadamia cashew butter!!

becky September 8, 2010 at 3:22 am

coconutty butter pwease!!!:))))

Ruth September 8, 2010 at 3:36 am

OMG I would love to try the coconut butter and the macadamia nut butter. I cannot find any of either for sale in the UK. If your willing to post overseas I would give anything to try it!

Natalie September 8, 2010 at 3:56 am

the cacoa bliss!

Amanda McIlhatton September 8, 2010 at 4:36 am

Coconut butter please……. I’m in the N.Ireland and I’m having difficulty getting it. do you know if any U.S. websites post to UK?

coco September 8, 2010 at 5:21 am

I’d love to try coconut butter!!! :D

michelle September 8, 2010 at 5:28 am

I’ve just moved to Sidney Australia and I get sooo jealous reading about all of these yummy looking butter combinations (which are not here sadly:( ) I just found a very small jar of cashew butter yesterday in a health food store and only paid $12.95 for it! Can’t wait for my good friend Ms. Vitamix to arrive soon so that I can at least attempt to make my own. :)

greenbean September 8, 2010 at 6:31 am

cocoa bliss! i’ve been looking to try that but i haven’t seen it in stores yet.

Jess S. September 8, 2010 at 6:39 am

i’ve never tried coconut butter so i’d definitely go for that one.

Lindsey @ Gingerbread Bagels September 8, 2010 at 6:40 am

Mmmm all of those nut butters look so tasty. But I have way too much nut butters. This year I won Maranatha’s contest and won a year supply of nut butters! :)

How cool that you sent you all of those samples, especially the single serving packets! :)

Justine September 8, 2010 at 6:44 am

Oh how kind of them? I have still never tried spicy with peanuts. Maybe my time has come?

I would love to try the walnut or pecan butter!

Thank you for sharing your bounty :)

Morgan M September 8, 2010 at 6:59 am

Definitely the macadamia butter–I have never had that!!

Katie September 8, 2010 at 7:18 am

Glad to see you are back in home safe in Nashville!

I would absolutely love to try the Coconut Butter!! :)

Stephyeats September 8, 2010 at 7:20 am

I think either the coconut butter or walnut butter would be interesting to try. Would love to try them on quinoa for breky. I do love me some PB or AB on my quinoa or oatbran but I think my taste buds need a change!

Sarah @ See Sarah Eat September 8, 2010 at 7:36 am

Oh my gosh! I would love to try Macadamia butter because I’ve never had it. But they all look so good!

I finally found the Justin’s chocolate nut butters and can’t wait to try those :)

Agnes September 8, 2010 at 7:48 am

ooh I would love to try the walnut and macadamia butters – just because I’ve never had those before!
