This summer is about to get nuts. Because Blue Diamond just released four new flavors of almonds, and they all sound like absolute bangers. These zesty, outside-the-box new flavors are (drum roll): Elote (Mexican street corn), and Korean BBQ. There are also two new flavors off their mashup line: Cinnamon/Maple, and Dark Chocolate/Chili Pepper.
The Elote almonds “deliver the taste of perfectly grilled sweet corn topped with chili pepper, cheese, and lime,” while the Korean BBQ almonds “offer a smoky, sweet and spicy snack with flavors of soy, garlic, and gochujang.” YUM! I cannot wait to try both of those. As for the mashups, the flavors are pretty self-explanatory, but that doesn’t make them any less exciting. Blue Diamond seems to really know what the people want (or at least what I want), so major props to those beautifully intuitive nut manufacturers.
Blue Diamond is no stranger to making bold strides in flavor innovation. As a brand, they’ve become ubiquitous with strong and spicy almond flavors, offering up some of my personal faves: Bold Wasabi Soy Almonds, and Spicy Dill Pickle Almonds. Will Korean BBQ almonds be the latest zesty almond to steal my heart? I guess it’s time to find out. These new almond flavors will soon be more widely-available, and are currently being sold at select Walmart stores. Guess it’s time for me to head on over to my closest Walmart, because Blue Diamond is this girl’s best friend.
