What could be better than RAW ORGANIC SPROUTED ALMOND BUTTER?
It’s “pretty much the best thing on earth.”
Well, I take that back.
Add in some superfood deliciousness and then we’ve got ourselves the best thing ever!
And this is where JEM enters the picture.
An almond butter fanatic (yes, I say it often and I’ll continue to advertise my adoration once again), I was touched with the opportunity to review these amazing little gems from JEM.
Raw. Organic. Sprouted. ALL the best things when it comes to food.
Superfood to boot.
The nuts and seeds in the spreads the company creates are “stoneground to perfection.”
“Made in small batches, paying careful attention to each and every detail, we’ve perfected our sprouting, stone-grinding and blending processes so that our final product retains the richest flavor, smoothest texture and highest nutritional content.”
And boy do the spreads taste great.
Unique. Wild. Intricate. Exquisite.
The flavor amalgamations certainly do make your mouth water simply through the names and certainly through the aromas.
JEM offers Superberry Maqui, Cashew Cardamom, Cinnamon Maca, and Hazelnut Cacao sprouted nut and seed spreads.
Don’t they sound amazing?
So amazing, in fact, that after just one spoonful of heaven, you almost just want to slather the spread all over your body in a state of utterly delicious intoxication.
Well, that may be a little extreme, but I think you get the picture.
I spooned and slathered both the Cinnamon Red Maca and Superberry Maqui Camu almond spreads all over my lips.
And, I was surprised.
I expected delight ~ but I noticed a bit more than just that with my persnickety and precise palate.
First of all, the spread was much thinner than I anticipated. This actually was a plus for many reasons for me. First off, being that I copiously consume almond butter by the heaping serving spoonful, a smoother, silkier texture elicits a much easier trickle down the throat. We’ve all experienced an overambitious bite of nut butter causing quite a bit of a stir in the back of the throat, super sticky despite the sweet joy (remember rubbing peanut butter on the roof of a dog’s mouth and watching the little guy have some fun when we were kids?). JEM somehow avoids this plight ~ which enables ME to eat just a little bit more…
And, in my more than more tasting bites, I also noticed a lingering satisfaction. The deep, intense flavors and aromas of cinnamon and vanilla, with a familiar hint of coconut caramely sweetness, didn’t just float away. They stayed with me. Satisfying me more than I could have imagined.
And, my impression did not stop there.
The superfood addition created even more depth of flavor, but also a nutritional boost beyond measure. “Maca has been used as a source of nourishment and healing for millennia; and has long been used to increase stamina, boost libido, and combat fatigue, for good reason. The root is a superb adaptogen, as it enables the body to more easily adjust to and regulate stress factors imposed upon it.”
For the Superberry: “We have chosen to blend this “JEM of the earth”, super berry in our organic sprouted almond spread for its extremely high antioxidant quality, specifically the well known anti aging flavonoids, anthocyanins, and its mild tart flavor. Camu is also very high in Vitamin C and loaded with antioxidants, bioflavonoids, amino acids, and beta-carotene. Camu camu is a bitter berry so you may get that bitter kick at the end, go with it, and enjoy the benefits.”
By the way, did I mention a quote directly from the JEM website:
“I renamed Superberry Maqui Camu to “Better than Sex.”
Now you know you want to try it.
Next up for me? I am dying to get my hands on some Cashew Cardamom Spread.
The day simply cannot come soon enough!
