[This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Almonds. They sent me two new flavors of almonds to try out; Honey Roasted Cinnamon and Bold Honey Dijon.]
Let’s just say, both canisters were gone in no time at all, so it’s a real good thing I snapped some pictures prior to writing this.
I started with the BOLD Honey Dijon almonds. I’m a huge Dijon fan, so I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed and oh my… I sure wasn’t. These are packed with flavor! I literally had to stop myself from eating them or I would’ve finished them all in one sitting.
In case you were wondering, in one serving (28 nuts) there is 170 calories, 15 grams of fat, 6 grams protein, 2 grams sugar and 115mg sodium. Sounds like a great snack to me.Once I moved on from the Dijon, I was ready to try the sweeter, Honey Roasted Cinnamon version. Again, zero disappointment! They had the perfect amount of cinnamon, sugar and honey and they weren’t overly sweet. I’d love these in a salad with pears and goat cheese. Oh. Em. Gee. Right?!
I’m a huge fan of almonds as a snack, although the plain variety gets a little boring, so I love the option of the flavored kinds as a way of mixing it up a bit!
Blue Diamond remains committed to investing in bee health research and instituting industry-leading practices to ensure healthier bee colonies. Blue Diamond recently donated an additional $100,000 to Project Apis m., a non-profit organization whose mission is to direct research that will enhance the health of honey bees while improving crop production.
Project Apis m. is committed to providing growers with healthier bees resulting in better pollination and increased crop yields. Blue Diamond believes in their mission of pursuing science-based solutions to honey bee challenges.
In doing some research I found a recipe for Honey Dijon Almond Salmon. That WILL be happening here in the near future! Once it does, I’ll be sure to share a recipe and review. The Blue Diamond website also has a ton of recipe ideas, which is helpful, too!
Head on out and get yourself some of these new, honey bee, supported almonds!!
