Giving Back to American Heroes

Lea and Mark started American Dream Nut Butter with the goal of making a serious impact on not only their community, but the world.  As a company we have been lucky enough to be a part of and raise money for a number of veterans’ charities and causes close to our heart.

Spread love like butter.

In 2024, all proceeds from One Tough Cookie sales go to cancer organizations, with each month dedicated to a different cancer type. We’ll share stories, honor those lost, support fighters, and celebrate survivors. Join us in battling these diseases that impact countless lives by purchasing a jar of One Tough Cookie Cashew Butter.
