i know exactly what you mean. the one at whole foods was HORRIBLE. at one of the coops in my city, i found shea that is very pure and shipped in regularly. its in a large container and they allow you to scoop. the smell is very light and the consistency smooth. try and find unrefined and organic in bulk where you can scoop yourself (preferably into a glass container- in my opinion those cheap plastic containers impact freshness).
