25 gifts under 25, No. 17: Heavy metal-themed nut butters

Cannot kill the family; buttery is found in me

Cannot kill the family; buttery is found in me

As you surely know by now, Brokelyn has a pronounced pro-pun bias. What you may not know is that we are also in the pro-metalhead camp (as this reporter’s first, third and fifth concerts were all METALLICA). This is all why the tasty creations by Williamsburg’s Better Off Spread caught our eye: Not only are the names of each item infused with heavy metal themed punditry that would have Dimebag Darrell rockin and rollin in his grave, but the vegan, organic spreads themselves are pretty damn delicious. The sweet (Master of Peppermints and the pumpkiny Cashew the Bell Tolls) or savory (the spicy Jalapeno Be Thy Name or the peppery Ace of Spice), concoctions are good enough that they’re meant to be served as their own appetizers, but you can just as easily throw them on a sandwich. And you may have seen them in our raffle at last week’s No Office party too!

$11-$13 each, or get the Master of Peppermints two-pack for $20; available online or throughout NYC
