Snack Attack, Part: The Second

While I would be willing to put in some serious investigative effort, it seems like a person probably can’t eat greek yogurt with coconut flakes every day. And sometimes situations present themselves (planes, trains, laziness) where you need something even easier.  Enter: Justin’s Almond Butter packets.

 (photo by M, who apparently requires no explanation as to 
why I need an “art-y shot of an almond butter packet.” The man just delivers.)
 

When I say these things are spectacular, I’m really not exaggerating. There’s absolutely nothing bad in them: just almonds and some paleo-friendly oil. No crayfish hydrogenated caterpillars, or other equally unnecessary ingredients most other companies like to put in their nut butters (I’m looking at you, sugar. Although it’s not really your fault). They’re not very expensive (you can buy them for about a dollar a packet on Amazon). But mostly importantly, they do away forever with the awkward question of how you transport almond butter anywhere other than two feet from your fridge. You always have the good intention of ladling out a normal-sized portion into a Tupperware container, or a plastic bag, but that a) never really happens, or b) is a sad, sticky, disheartening mess,* which inevitably leads you back to a). Just put that all behind you, and stock your desk with these. Never look back.

*If you were Chris Flood, the best 5 year old to ever grace the summer camp where I worked in college, you would turn to me at this juncture and say “I happen to be in a sticky situation!” You would be covered in glue, not almond butter, but I would die all the same.

    ha, i’ve got a bulk order of these little packets sittin’ in my amazon cart at the moment. i love topping plain brown rice cakes with a bit of almond butter and a sliced banana. such a power snack! AND no almond butter clean up, cause yes the Tupperware situation after that is always a mess.

    Those little nut butter packets are my absolute favorite. I have a stash at work and in my pantry. Have you tried the chocolate almond butter? Gahh it’s like straight up ganache. Yummy :)

      I’ve seen them, but tried to steer clear…mostly because I think I would end up eating the entire box at once.
