Peanut butter always makes me overeat.... almond butter does too, but not so much, so I like to keep it around more!

it makes sense that almond butter would cost more too bc of the nutritional value.

I can't eat plain almond butter - it just doesn't taste that great to me. I like to use it in raw fudge though. Peanut butter is my favorite.

almonds are actually a nut, either. they're also a seed. i've heard that peanut butter should be avoided because it contains a mold of some kind. heard this on Dr. Asa Andrew's radio show.

I love almond butter. If you like the taste of pb but want the benefits of almond butter try Barney Butter. Tastes like roasted peanuts but is soooo much better!

I like almond butter better. I make it at home and it's super tasty, plus you get to control how much salt and sugar you want to put in to make it tastier.

I really like both too. Almond butter is much more difficult for me to find (and, as a result, more expensive), but I appreciate the extra little nutritional boost I get from it over peanut butter every now and again.

Almond Butter ftw! I really like the kind you can grind yourself, like at Whole Paycheck.

I absolutely love almond butter. I've been mixing both Pb (my first love) and AB on my toast in the morning. Divine. http://moonischasingme1.blogspot.com/

They're both sooo delicious. But I think peanut butter will always have my heart. :)
