As a Blue Diamond Tastemaker I have the opportunity to try new products and this time it was their new Blueberry and Salted Caramel flavors. I have a 100 calorie pack of natural Blue Diamond almonds just about every day for snack. I was ready to change it up without going off my eating plan.
Salted Caramel Almonds
Who doesn’t loved salted caramel anything? I was most looking forward to this flavor of Blue Diamond Almonds and they didn’t disappoint. It’s a great snack when you want something sweet and even a little decadent without all the sugar.
This flavor would be perfect for cooking with as some other tastemakers did. My favorite recipes were for Salted Caramel Almond & Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies and salted caramel almond bark.
Having said that I enjoyed them very much right out of the can. It’s hard to describe but it was sweet, savory and satisfying all at the same time.
Although there are lots of reasons I eat almonds regularly, it’s important to keep track of portions. I count out 14 almonds (1/2 serving) every time I enjoy these.
Oven Roasted Blueberry Almonds
First I tried the Blue Diamond Oven Roasted Blueberry Almonds. They came in a great resealable 5 ounce bag.
These almonds really tasted like blueberry! I took this bag to the office and they were gone fast.
For me the salted caramel almonds were the best but as they say, your mileage may vary. Either way, you’re getting the satisfaction of a sweet treat but without the guilt. Which flavor do you want to try first?

Almonds are probably my favorite type of nut! These both sound delicious! :]
