Is there anything better than dipping a cold, crisp apple into warm, creamy almond butter? People were using their FourSide and WildSide jars by adding oil or stopping the blender mid cycle to scrape partially blended nuts off the sides of the jar to make almond butter. That worked, but Blendtec’s engineers thought there had to be a better way. After much brainstorming and a lab that smelled like almond butter for weeks, we finally came up with the one-of-a-kind Twister Jar!
