I’d say that all of these items are rather easy to find in all grocery stores, but you can always order online!
Best Almond Butters
If you’re wondering what kind of DRIPPY almond butter I like, my suggestions are Kirkland brand from Costco, Trader Joe’s brand, and Fresh Thyme’s brand. I stress drippy because drippy usually means all-natural AKA no additives, which is what I like to look for.
