Barney Butter Review

So my much-anticipated Barney Butter package (chunky and creamy) came via UPS and I test-drove a sample of both yesterday upon their arrival.

First, I tried a teensy taste of the chunky (what was stuck to the interior seal) and it’s really chunky and really flavorful!! Definitely a different taste than my usual Krema all-natural peanut butter … it’s a little salty, and a little sweet. But it stands alone and could be a good alternative from my PB.

The creamy Barney Butter is definitely sweeter — which I have little mini 90-cal packs of now. I think it will taste good swirled in my oats or on fruit, but frankly, it tasted pretty good by itself here at my desk!!

Almond butter has less saturated fat than peanut butter, and so I think it’ll be a nice change-up. I am keeping the mini packs at my desk for a low-carb, pre-gym boost.

Thanks to Heather at HangryPants for the special free-shipping offer!

How about you? Do you have a favorite nut butter, or are nut butters a trigger food for you?

If these girls swear by it, I figured it was worth a shot.

And Heather over at HangryPants just tried it out, and she even scored a deal for her readers! (free shipping if you use the code “HangryPants!”) Continue reading “Jumping on the Barney Butter Bandwagon”
