We’re delighted by this honor, especially coming from a magazine so tightly aligned with our core values. Self’s designation of this award for healthy foods that are simple, affordable, accessible, and great tasting matches perfectly with the vision that guides our products’ creations.

Barney Butter, the booming, Husband and Wife owned, almond butter brand that has twice been awarded a spot on the Inc 5000 list of fastest-growing U.S. companies, has earned a prestigious “Healthy Food Award” from Self Magazine, the popular online “wellness resource” with an audience of over five million viewers. The winning product was noted for its “super-thick” texture, and a “pure almond flavor” that “tastes great without any added sugar or salt.”

“We’re delighted by this honor,” says Barney Butter President & CEO, Dawn Kelley, “especially coming from a magazine so tightly aligned with our core values. Self’s designation of this award for healthy foods that are simple, affordable, accessible, and great tasting matches perfectly with the vision that guides our products’ creations.”

The pure and simple nature of the ingredients in the award-winner is something that Barney Butter’s Director of Marketing, Kate Whitney, finds indicative of the company’s sharp focus on transparency and commitment to quality. “Our decision to make our almond butters in our own dedicated peanut-free facility has made it a favorite of families dealing with a peanut allergy,” shares Whitney, “but it’s also a reflection of our obsession with creating truly clean foods.”

Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Jaime Mass shares Whitney’s perspective on Bare Smooth’s unadulterated power. Says Mass: “When I recommend Barney Butter Bare Smooth to my clients, I know I am actively helping to change their daily life in a positive way. It’s balanced beautifully with macronutrients to create a healthy, convenient, and versatile product that can support their health goals.”
The magazine positioned the Bare Smooth almond butter as one of “12 Healthy Breakfast Foods to Start Your Day. To view the full list of the 2017 SELF Healthy Food Awards, visit http://www.SELF.com.
