Artisana Foods Review and Giveaway! -- CLOSED



Hey everyone! My next review and giveaway is for Artisana Foods. Artisana Foods is a great company that has pretty much the most delicious nut butters in the world. They have almost every type of nut created into butter and they're incredible. Period.



I received two large jars of Cacao Bliss and Coconut Butter. But I also received single serving packets of all the rest of their flavors which are:
Coconut Oil
Almond Butter
Cashew Butter
Pecan Butter
Macadamia Butter
Tahini Butter
Cashini Butter
Walnut Butter


These were just so good, I loved that I got the chance to love them all. As much as I do love peanut butter it's fun to experiment and try other nut butters. I was a little disappointed with the Cacao Bliss and Coconut Butter with their consistency. The oil I guess separates easily from both of them and they get super liquidy. The Cacao Bliss made up for it though just because it's pretty much the most delicious butter in the world. It's basically a chocolate coconut butter and tastes as amazing as it sounds. I ate this solo a lot just when I wanted a quick snack, but it's also great on bananas and anything. The coconut butter was okay, a little disappointed because it was really too liquidy for me.

The rest though had some pleasant surprises. My favorite aside from the cacao bliss turned out to be the pecan butter. Oh my god. The consistency was perfect and tasted sweet and thick. I ate it with apples on a sandwich, which I did with a lot of these mainly because I needed a lunch for work haha and it was perfect. Some were good with the apples but kind of bland solo like the cashew and cashini. But this pecan was perfect alone just dipping your finger into, too. The walnut was also incredible. I noticed though, I'm a huge fan of pecans and walnuts in general so that's probably why I really loved these butters. So if you are a fan of a particular nut, I definitely recommend trying one of these nut butters out. The coconut oil was pretty great too, I used it in smoothies to give it a nice coconut kick.

Artisana is also great because they're made with 100% certified Organic nuts, seeds, and coconut meat which means no toxic pesticides, chemicals, or genetically modified organisms. They're also don't add any extra ingredients. No salt, sugar, preservatives or artificial flavors - Nothing. Which means that all you get is the clean, fresh taste of nuts and seeds the way nature intended.

Also these nut butters are great for people that are allergic to peanuts and can't experience the amazingness that is peanut butter because they're peanut free, they're also kosher and gluten free, too!

Definitely check out Artisana Foods, their nut butters are just awesome. If you love peanut butter or nuts or chocolate or coconut or just trying new things you need to try these, they do not disappoint!
