Love'n Bake Fillings

You can buy directly from the company web site where you can find a list of retailers and King Arthur. Many Whole Foods in the East carry most of the items and there are retailers in different pockets of the US particularlly in metro NYC. For example Kalustyan's. Hope this helps.

good brands for almond paste?

Thanks for the kinds words about Love'n Bake, the retail brand made by American Almond Products Company in Brooklyn, NY. One clarification, Love’n Bake is an all natural almond paste made by our company and contains approximately 2/3 almonds and 1/3 sugar. Almonds appear first on the ingredient label, as they do on the American Almond cans packaged for bakeries and restaurants. There is no coloring in the product. There is a natural flavoring used in the retail brand product. So I am guessing that one poster’s comments do not refer to American Almond Products.

Regarding pricing, which varies among retailers, as it is made from an agricultural commodity, almond paste prices can fluctuate from year to year. Also our retail can is 10 ounces. (For a short time we did a 1 pound can.)
