Artisana Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



We love peanut butter here in our house. Avery has a sandwich almost every day, and I put it on bagels and crackers and anything really. When I had the chance to try out different nut butters from Artisana. I jumped.

We were sent 2 full size jars of Coconut Butter and Cashini. They also sent along single serve squeeze packets in every flavor!
They have a lot of flavors and honestly, they sent me the 2 least favorite in the full size!! Cashini is Cashew and Tahini (sesame seeds). 

My favorite so far has been the Cashew and the Walnut. The macadamia was pretty good too. Haven't tried the Cacao Bliss yet and the Coconut was hard when we got it (because it was cold that day). 

They also send along Coconut Oil which will be put to use. YUM. I love cooking with it. 
They have a ton of flavors. Avery has been using the Cashini on her sandwiches, she doesn't complain about it, but it's not very sweet at all. I would prefer it if they had a bit of added sugar in them to sweeten them up a bit.Peanuts are sweet without added sugar and these aren't so sweet. 

But they have a great consistency. Easy to spread (except the coconut oil) and they aren't too runny so she's not dripping out of her  sandwich constantly. 

Price: 16oz jars vary depending on the store. But are about $13-$17! A bit pricey, but they are healthier than peanut butter. 

Overall: **** I'm not a fan, but it's a taste preference thing and Avery's eating them.
