I always buy my almond butter in bulk at my favourite local natural foods co-op. It's much cheaper than buying it in a jar, I can choose the amount, and I re-use my container over and over again, which saves on packaging.
It's not raw, but I've made the decision to continue some roasted nuts. It works best for my lifestyle, I guess.
I like to buy a small amount at a time, because in three weeks...I might be sick of almond butter and craving natural peanut butter instead. This is how I buy deglet noor and medjool dates, hemp seed and spirulina and barley grass powder, etc for smoothies, and all my other nuts, seeds, dried fruit, etc. They have some wonderful raw mixed nuts, turkish figs, raw sunflower seeds, pepitas, etc.
Long story short...the bulk department is a raw foodist's DREAM. Just make sure to find out what's really truly raw.
