Nut Butter Obsession

Ever since my eyes were opened to the food blog world, I have learned about so many nut butters that I hadn't heard about before! One nut butter company I have fallen in love with is Peanut Butter & Co.

See exhibit A:

I recently purchased the jar of Cinnamon Raisin Swirl at The Fresh Market in VA Beach when I was home for Thanksgiving. It is a-mazing! All of the raisins and perfect amount of cinnamon make this a great peanut butter for toast. It would be awesome on cinnamon swirl bread!

One of the main reasons I was on a nut butter search at home was because we don't get a lot of specialty items in the grocery stores here in Harrisonburg. I guess it's one of the few downsides to living in a small town. That, and not living near a real mall. ;) However, I was SHOCKED to find that Martin's in Harrisonburg started to carry Peanut Butter & Co.'s PB when I got back! I picked up a jar of Dark Chocolate Dreams before they ran out. Good thing I did because I haven't found any of their PB at Martin's since! I hope they keep it in stock :) I really like this flavor because it's a perfect balance between chocolate and peanut butter. Is this like Nutella? Not at all! I don't dislike Nutella, I just think it tastes artificial...I think it's the milk chocolate taste that I'm not a fan of.

Check out this peanut butter if a store near you sells it! They have another flavor called Mighty Maple that I want to pick up soon. Maybe I'll stock up when I go up to Northern VA to visit my Dad over the holiday.

Do any of you have a favorite nut butter? OR has anyone made their own nut butter?
