Best Place For Nut Heads

Wheatsville Food Co-op

Back in the back left corner of Wheatsville, just to the left of the deli, are tubs and tubs of organic nut butters. Cashew, almond, peanut, they all look so tempting you want to dip the oversized metal spoon in and cover yourself, denying the little plastic receptacle you hold in your hand the pleasure of feeling that gooey goodness. But since this would make a big mess, you content yourself instead with sampling the puffed rice "krinkle" treats made with these same nut butters. Perhaps your sweet tooth is acting up, so you trot over to the bakery and ask for a cashew butter cookie or maybe an organic peanut butter cookie with rolled oats laced in peanut butter. In the end, it doesn't matter in which form you take your nuts, because they all reach the same place, your heart.
