This spring, Blue Diamond Growers has introduced a new product line that will have shoppers loading up their baskets faster than you can say “almonds.” The company has launched Thin Dipped Almonds in the snack nuts aisle, giving consumers a better-for-you chocolate-dipped almond option that will be available at Walmart.
"We are so excited to present our customers with yet another incredible innovation within Blue Diamond's iconic snack almond portfolio," said Raj Joshi, Senior Vice President of Global Consumer Division, Blue Diamond Growers. "Whether you're a health nut or not, Thin Dipped Almonds offer a smart choice when it comes to sweet snacking. The thin layer of chocolate enhances the almond's natural crunch while allowing snackers to enjoy a delicious, sweet treat—without the guilt!"
Thin Dipped Almonds come in two delicious flavors: Double Dark Chocolate and Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel. According to a release, both offerings contain 50 percent less sugar than average chocolate-covered almonds, and one serving has 170 calories and 5 g of protein.
Available in convenient, 4 oz bags, Thin Dipped Almonds are free of cholesterol, high in vitamin E, and contain no artificial colors or flavors. They became available for purchase this May.
I’ll be right back; I have to make a quick stop at Walmart to get my hands on these tasty treats!
