Windy City Organics Dastony™ Sprouted Almond Butter -- 8 oz
I absolutely LOVE this almond butter. It is sprouted, easy to stir, and very tasty. Some customers criticized its slightly liquid consistency, I found it to be a benefit. I can drizzle it over my fruit, use it in salad dressing (which usually call for peanut butter), or dip whatever in it. Drizzled over strawberries is a delicious treat!!! I don't care about not being able to spread it, bc I don't eat bread anyway. And even then I could see just drizzling it over. It is perfect! To me, it is worth the extra money too.

Viscous liquid with no substance
I was amazed that the jar I received was comprised solely of a viscous fluid more like a slightly thicker version of almond milk than a nut butter. I could drizzle it from a spoon or pour it like a liquid however any attempt to spread it failed. When I attempted to mix the contents of the jar with a knife, all there was, was fluid. I was very disappointed. I would like to think that I received a defective jar of slightly colored almond oil as I think sprouting the almonds is on the right track.

Smooth, tasty, healthier
I have sampled several brands of almond butter before. For me, Dastony beats them all so far. It isn't made from roasted almonds, so the taste is more subtle. I love the mouth feel of it. It is very smooth. Smoother than others that I've tried. It is sprouted so the phytic acid content is reduced, making it a healthier choice. When I eat regular roasted almond butter, I feel inflammation in my body. I don't get this reaction with this product. I haven't tried other brands of raw or sprouted almond butter so I don't know how Dastony compares to them. Overall I love this product. I just wish it was more affordable!
