My raw almond butter came in the mail today (Artisana brand, 100% Raw Organic Almonds)! I was so excited, I opened it right away and stired it up real good and got ready to spread it on a banana. But first i popped a spoonful into my mouth and… whoa!? am I crazy? this tastes like it has cherries or something in it?! It was not what I expected (not sure what I expected, but the sweetness of it surprised me). So then I kind of freaked out and got worried it was labeled wrong or got mixed in with something else and decided not to eat it.
Was anyone else surprised when they tasted raw almond(or any raw nut) butter for the first time? I’ve been eating almond butter for a few years now but was buying the roasted kind before… I knew it wasn’t going to taste like roasted but it’s very different. Just wondering if this flavor is normal or if something really is wrong.
