I just wanted to share that I had my first bite of Barney Butter and nearly cried from joy.  I developed a peanut allergy six years ago and have desperately missed peanut butter.   I have tried EVERY almond butter out there but they have all been a poor substitute. When I saw your Barney Butter in the store the other day and saw that it has the same consistency as peanut butter I had to try it.  It is the absolute best!  I will be a loyal fan from now on!  Thank you so much for making my day! – Dawn, Vero Beach, FL
