Why is there a white coating on the surface of my nut butter?

What you are seeing in your Chocolate Hazelnut or Vanilla Almond Butter is called cocoa bloom. This occurs naturally when the cocoa butter separates, solidifies and rises to the surface of the jar. Although this blooming is not a food safety hazard, and it is still consumable, we understand the appearance may be out of the ordinary. If you would like to send us the flavor, best by date and a picture of the cocoa bloom, we’d love to track the batch as well as replace your jar!
