GRAND PRIZE WINNER: MaraNatha All-Natural No-Stir
Tops for taste: Powerfully nutty with an ideal salt level—just enough to bring out the almond flavor, but with a harmonizing note of sweetness. Try a dollop stirred into a winter squash soup.
TASTE TEST AWARD: Barney Butter
Tops for texture: the smoothest, creamiest of the candidates. Ideal for turning a PB&J into an AB&J, or for swirling into banana bread batter.
