Once Again Nut Butter

Once Again Nut Butter is amazing. They sent me the cutest lunch box filled with all their flavors, and boy do they have a lot. I love the sunflower seed butter. Once Again Nut Butter is 100% employee-owned. They are a company with an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). However, they govern themselves as a worker-owned cooperative. The biggest difference between a worker co-op and an ESOP is in the valuation of company stock. In their employee-owned company, all the employees are owners.

The Once Again Organic Amore Almond Spread with Milk Chocolate was the highlight of the package. We dipped some strawberries in it and my son absolutely loved it.
