I'll have to look at the Maranatha, I use their almond butter, cashew butter, sunflower butter...now that one is fun tasting!
I too love the almond butter, cashew butter, and sunflower butter in this brand. That is how I found this. I will need to just start experimenting. Oh goodie. I love experiments! Thanks!

ahh That's the same kind stuff I use, just a different brand. Mine has never been in a solid-ish block though ~ probably because I'm in the desert where it's predicted to get up to 118F in the next couple days! Often times there is some thicker cream that is on the top of the can though.

I love coconut. Glad to see that it's popular and that new research has bounced it back up so far as to be healthy again!

Come to think of it, I used to buy something called cream of coconut in a can to make mixed drinks back in the day. We made piņa colatas (sp?). I'm thinking that tasted sweeter and had a creamy texture. The texture of the coconut butter is more gritty, and not sweet.
