not sure about the taste... in my opinion it doesn't really taste like peanut butter, but it's good...

Other Artisana products are better

After trying Artisana's Cacao Bliss, Pecan butter and Macadamia Cashew butter with great success, I wanted to sample some of the manufacturer's other products. As a peanut butter fanatic, I thought the Cashini Butter would be a good product to try. It is labeled as a peanut butter replacement and probably could function in that capacity for many people. Taste wise, however, I would recommend all of aforementioned Artisana's products over this one. The macadamia cashew butter is especially good on toast.
The Cashini Butter is easily retrieved from the container. There was no oil separation and the product was ready right out of the jar -- no stirring required. One can take a butter knife and quickly spread the substance on a piece of toast or apple slices. There are just three ingredients in the product: 100% organic raw cashews, 100% organic raw sesame seeds and sea salt. I found the flavor to be very much influenced by the sesame seeds and considered this to be a thicker form of tahini.
While not noted explicitly on the product's label, I could see nothing that would contradict my belief that this is a vegan product. There is no milk, honey, eggs or other animal-based substances that go into the formulation of this product. According to the product packaging, this product is "made in a facility that processes tree nuts and soy, but does not process peanuts, gluten, dairy, cholesterol or GMO's."
I think this is a good product but flavor wise cannot compete with Artisana's other creations. If I had not tried other Artisana products before the Cashini Butter (and if the Cashini Butter was not so reminiscent of tahini), the product would have received a higher rating from me. I would prefer to spread the macadamia cashew butter or pecan butter on toast rather than this cashini butter. Compared to Artisana's other products, the Cashini Butter comes in a larger jar which is a nice feature. Many of Artisana's other jars contain only 7 or 8 two tables
