Barney Butter Squeeze Packs. Adding convenience to its existing line of almond butters, Barney Butter now offers single-serve squeeze packs. Five varieties, available in two sizes— 1.06 ounces and a smaller, 90-calo- rie 0.6 ounces—are all made with blanched roasted almonds and palm fruit oil, plus they're non-GMO, kosher, and gluten-free. Bare Smooth and Bare Crunchy contain just nuts and oil. Three flavored options include Cocoa + Coconut, featuring Enjoy Life brand chocolate chips, extra-virgin coconut oil, and natural coconut flavor; Vanilla Bean + Espresso, with natural vanilla flavor and ground espresso beans; and Honey + Flax, which contains flax seed and powdered honey. barneybutter.com Dave's Gourmet Oatmeal and Snickerdoodle Cookie Butters. These two new products are an American-made take on popular European cookie butters. A 2014 sofi winner in the Outstanding Jam, Preserve, Honey, and Nut Butter category, Oatmeal Cookie Butter was designed to taste like a spreadable version of oat- meal cookies. With a thick and creamy texture, it can be slathered on toast, apple slices, and cupcakes, or used as a filling in cookies and other baked sweets. Snickerdoodle Cookie Butter touts a healthy dose of cinnamon, lend- ing itself to crepes, bagels, and more. davesgourmet.com Eden Foods Organic Concord Grape Butter. This deep purple, sweet fruit butter uses organic Concord grapes grown on a family-owned vineyard in New York's Finger Lakes region. The grapes are crushed, flash-frozen, shipped, thawed, and steam-cooked into a thick puree, which is then slowly kettle-cooked into a smooth, spreadable butter. More than two pounds of fruit goes into each 8-ounce jar. Ideal as a filling for pastries and cookies, the grape butter enhances many morning meals, including break- fast pastries, toast, oatmeal, pancakes, and more. Other fruit butters in the Eden Foods line include apple, apple cherry, and cherry. Based in Michigan, Eden Foods has been independently owned and operated for more than 46 years. edenfoods.com Jem Raw Organics Cashew Cardamom Butter. In 2015, the company is replacing the Coconut Cardamom Butter with Cashew Cardamom Butter. Its texture is creamy, with a discern- ible cardamom flavor. The product, along with Jem Raw's full line of butters, is organic, raw, vegan, low-glycemic, and gluten-free, incorporating ingredients such as coconut palm sugar (a natu- ral and low-glycemic sweetener) and raw cacao. For its nut butters, Jem soaks and dehydrates nuts before stone-grinding to release enzyme inhibitors, making its products easily digestible, according to ayurvedic practices. Other products in the line include Cinnamon Red Maca Almond Butter, Hazelnut Raw Cacao Spread, and Superberry Maqui Camu Almond Butter. jemraw.com NaturAlmond Almond Butters. The star ingredients of this line are slow-roasted, non-GMO California almonds. Available in four varieties, each 12-ounce jar contains no added oils, preservatives, or emulsifiers. Original contains roasted almonds and sea salt, while a salt-free version omits the sodium. A honey roasted variety adds crystallized honey and sea salt, and the maple caramel version blends in caramelized and dehydrated maple syrup with sea salt. Handcrafted in small batches in the company's Atlanta, Ga., commercial kitchen, the nut butters are peanut- and gluten-free. They were inspired by the co-founder's grand- father, who began making almond butters in the 1970s to help combat his genetic predisposition toward cardiovascular disease. naturalmond.com Nikki's Coconut Butter in Pumpkin Spiced Donut. While following the Paleo diet, the founders of Nikki's began preparing coconut butter to satisfy their cravings for a sweet snack. The com- pany recently unveiled an indulgent seasonal flavor, Pumpkin Spiced Donut, featuring naturally sweet organic coconut meat, dry-roasted pecans, coco- nut oil, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and sea salt. Nut- free, gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan, each 12-ounce jar has an 8-month shelf life. Other flavors in the line include equally indulgent chocolate hazelnut brownie, dark chocolate fudge, macadamia nut cookie, honey pecan pie, and vanilla cake batter. nikkiscoconutbutter.com product roundup 88 ❘ SPECIALTY FOOD MAGAZINE specialtyfood.com
