I've had cashew butter from Trader Joe's and the taste is so subtle -- I have to concentrate: "Taste the cashew flavor! Taste the cashew flavor! C'mon, it's cashew!" -- that it feels like a waste of fat and calories. If I'm eating cashew, I want to TASTE CASHEW. So, peanut butter wins in that regard. At least that was my experience. Maybe I got a bad tasteless batch?

Simple, basic nut butters (just ground up nuts in their own oils and sometimes salt) are a totally different concoction than the commercially processed Skippy, Jif, Peter Pan, etc. that most were raised on. Those, for the most part, have additional hydrogenated vegetables oils, salt and added sugar. The reason "natural" peanut butter, etc. tastes bland or subtle to people accustomed to their Jif et al is that they're used to the sugar. Obviously the texture is very different, too, and some people are texture people.

I like "natural" nut butters, because they taste overwhelmingly of, well, nuts. The only commercially processed peanut butter I really use anymore is Simply Jif, which is a lower salt and lower sugar version of regular Jif.

I think its funny that some people think butters made with nuts other than peanuts are "healthier." people will believe anything. I find peanut butter to be the best ive tried and its the least expensive.

I personally prefer fresh peanut butter, but I voted almond butter to be a good mommy since I have a kid that has a peanut allergy so I really have to avoid having it in the house if at all possible

I have not had cashew butter, it's 3$ more than organic peanut butter, fresh from the grinder at whole foods. I will get some and try it out, I like cashews so I think I'll like it.
