Although peanuts are naturally hesitant to come out of their shells, in time they learn, like a shy but good-natured president, to enjoy being roasted. Forge a friendly rapport with high-status nuts with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet peanut butters and other nutty spreads at Spread's store in West Hollywood. This deal is not valid at the restaurant.
Spread's delectable spreads are hand-mashed from local, organic ingredients. The sumptuous pressed-peanut concoctions include the savory-sweet dark-chocolate-curry peanut spread ($9.50), designed to melt smoothly over sautéed bananas, and the luxurious gold-and-dark-chocolate peanut spread($20), which mixes in antioxidant-loaded flakes of 23-karat gold and rich dark chocolate and gives stomachs a taste of the riches that greedy hands are always clutching to themselves. Though most of Spread's sandwich-cargo is rendered from G.W. Carver's legume of choice, other nutty blends include their signature butterscotch-almond butter, fused with sweet butterscotch chips ($11), and the beach-ready piña colada, a creamy blend of dried organic pineapple, coconut flakes, and white chocolate ($9.50).
