Thank goodness almonds are good for you, because we haven’t been able to stop snacking on Blue Diamond’s “Naughty & Nice Edition” of flavored almonds.
This holiday season, Blue Diamond Almonds has launched two limited edition holiday flavors, Snickerdoodle and Peppermint Cocoa (photos #1 and #2).
Snickerdoodle Almonds deliver the taste of the popular cinnamon sugar cookie. Heavenly!
Peppermint Cocoa Almonds have a light chocolatey flavor with a hint of peppermint. Delightful!
They’re both naughty (a bit sweet) and nice (all of the healthful goodness of almonds).
They’re a seasonal snack and a great choice for stocking stuffers, too (SRP $4.19 for a 6-ounce can).
The lids are blank gift tags, so you can fill in the “To” and “From.”
ENJOYING YOUR SWEET ALMONDS
These almonds, tinged with sugar (but only 5g for 28 nuts), are delicious:
With coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or a glass of milk.
On an ice cream sundae or other dessert garnish.
Snacking from the can: A one-ounce serving is 28 almonds!
Even tossed into a green salad or grain bowl.
GET YOUR HOLIDAY ALMONDS
Find them at retailers including Kroger, Whole Foods Markets, and on Amazon, through December 2022.
You may want to buy extras for sweet-yet-nice snacking into 2023 (the shelf life is through June 2025).
