Blue Diamond Almonds - Little Gems of Tastiness!

Oh. My. Goodness.
Blue Diamond's Bold Habanero BBQ Almonds are freakishly good.
I'm positively addicted.

In all honesty, I do alternate back & forth weekly from the Habanero BBQ to the Blazin' Buffalo Wing flavor. I really, really like them both. Sometimes, I even go buck-wild & buy both flavors  (yeah, I'm a total party-girl...I know...)
I have adjusted well to living low-carb over the last year & half, for the most part. But, I really do miss BBQ potato chips somewhat ferociously. It comes in fits & starts, but it always shows up eventually. I have found my answer!
These Habanero BBQ almonds are seasoned so that they taste like BBQ chips. And the almonds themselves are really tasty, too, of course. It's as close as I've come to finding low-carb BBQ chips.
These have some spice, but not too much. I would say they are less spicy than Sweet Heat chips, but maybe by just a little. If you are super-sensitive to spice, these probably aren't gonna work for you.
If you like spice, I bet you'll love these babies.

Let me mention here, too, the Blazin' Buffalo Wing flavor. They are slightly spicy, too, but they don't have the BBQ chip flavor like the others. But the flavor is EXTREMELY nice. I really don't know which ones I like better! They do taste like buffalo wings for the most part.

Both of these almonds weigh-in at relatively the same nutritional amounts.
Carb count for 1 oz (about 28 nuts) is 5g total carbs, minus 3g fiber, equals 2g NET carbs.
Excellent stats! Plus, scientific evidence suggests that eating 1.5 oz per day of most nuts, such as almonds, may reduce the risk of heart disease.
My entire family (kids, too!) love both varities of these almonds. They are always trying to eat up my almonds! I do SO wish that they had a big, bulk size of these at Sam's club. I would soooo buy them!
Until then, I guess I'll get my weekly fix when I hit the grocery store.

CAUTION: These are highly "snackable". You may need to divide these up into bags right away so that you don't sit down and consume the whole can "accidentally". Don't ask...party-girl, remember?!
