I've used a number of brands of almond butter, both raw and roasted. All, except for Artisana, are inconsistent in freshness. In fact, my experience has been that most of the time the other almond butters are rancid. I'm not crazy-fussy, but rancid is just not acceptable. I did a little online research and discovered the reason why this is the case. Most companies use the leftover broken pieces of almonds to process the product and almonds just don't stay fresh once broken. Artisana apparently uses fresh whole almonds, assuring that the product is truly fresh before jarring. That's why it's on the expensive side, but it's worth it. Not only is it healthier to eat raw nuts and seeds, it's imperative that they're fresh. Nothing's more unhealthy than rancid fat!

The taste is mild, I prefer roasted type.

This is great because CRUNCHY raw almond butter is difficult to find. It's not my favorite, but I'll buy it 2nd to No One!! The oils are not as separated as some, which is a definite plus. Just not as strong an almond flavor as I like ...

Strange taste goes well in my protein shakes, not so good solo

it wasn't popular with the family as it is too dry in the mouth to eat by itself. it's nicer with jam, honey and even treacle.

This is my first organic almond butter, so I can't compare it to other organic products, but I surely didn't expect it to taste like this.

it is a good almond butter and it is so hard to find raw, organic almond butter but it is not my favorite. It is the consistency that I have a problem with. My jar did not spread well and would clump - but it did taste okay once I could get on my rice cake. Others I have tried have tasted better but they cost more. I did order a second jar to see if maybe I just got an "off" jar. For the price - if you want organic raw almond butter, this is good.
