Best Locally Made Snack

Butter Your Nuts

Readers' Choice

We've got something this year that you're truly going to go nuts over. Slightly thinner in consistency than typical machine-ground nut butter, this spreadable snack will have your mouth watering, especially when you see all of the creative things that local cafes and restaurants are doing with it. Made by hand in Akron, all-natural spreads like peanut butter, almond butter, crunchy pecan and maple walnut are making a splash all over town. The rolling granite wheels crush nuts until they're warm and liquefied, creating beautiful, honey colored spreads that go great on everything from ice cream to PB&Js.
