      I saw there’s all healthy natural nut butter stall by Hunters Kitchenette at Takashimaya Basement 2 Singapore, for the time being only until 2nd of March 2014. They have different flavors from cashew, almond, chocolate hazelnut, macadamia and pistachio too.

        I did buy their almond and cashew butter. Both tasted great, consider it as my good fat intake. If I am not mistaken, the price of macadamia and pistachio butter are around SGD16.

  6. Wow. I am counting my blessings. Almond butter is available in the states as much as peanut butter; just not as many brands. Wish I could ship it over!

    • Dont think people will be very receptive to almond butter, cause the word almond in Asia associates with white food.. so its kinda mismatched when it comes to color.
