Watch out, Simply Balanced Dark Chocolate Almond Butter is super creamy! At first glance, it appears dreamy, but in reality, it's drippy – it'll leak from the edges of your sandwich, English muffin or celery stick. The taste is rich and consistency is thin but luxurious. What else could an almond butter lover want? Well, the taste of dark chocolate, for starters! Although the label calls it dark chocolate almond butter, and the color is a bit darker than its regular almond butter friends on the shelf, this product *barely hints* at a chocolate taste. You have to imagine the taste of chocolate if you want it. Or, you have to go and get some dark chocolate to satisfy your craving. This almond butter is an unfortunate waste of money for a dark chocolate aficionado. It's highly edible, if you're looking for standard almond butter. I'm sure it would be superior in certain types of cookies and other recipes. It's just basically false advertising. A letdown. 2 stars.
