351061351061B0034KN29OAXEQHTFZZ6LB4Themis Nike1151328140800Incredible!These almonds are nothing short of incredible- they are so delicious! If you are trying to follow a low-carb lifestyle (for dietary reasons or weight loss) and need a 'sweet fix' after meals, then this is a wonderful option - only 6 g. Net carbs! And the taste is so yummy! They are just sweet enough! I'm so glad that amazon sells them in bulk, because I could easily go through one container in a week!
351062351062B0034KN29OA3D165TX35GR0S. Macnicoll1151233446400Healthy and delicious!If you want a truly healthy, filling snack, you must give these a try, as well as their sisters, the Vanilla Bean Almonds. They are both just lightly sweetened, and fragrant with either the cinnamon or the vanilla, depending on which you choose. The container is marvelous; there is a half flip top which is easy to do with one hand (like in the car). And they're not roasted in more oil, so the almonds are "meaty" and sweet. And almonds are SOOO good for you. I'd recommend that you try them, and then get an Amazon subscribe and save if you can. It's well worth it! And all natural. LOVELY!
351063351063B0034KN29OA2HS6ND7J8IQ0Lfemgeek2321335744000Not the same as the canned versionI expected that these canisters of Blue Diamond "Roasted Almonds - Honey" would be the same product as the little cans of Blue Diamond "Honey Roasted Almonds" ( Blue Diamond Almonds Honey Roast, 6-Ounce Tins (Pack of 12) ) but they're surprisingly not the same, and have a very "off" taste. What a disappointment! Blue Diamond has apparently seen fit to add much more maltodextrin and "other natural flavors", which I suspect cause the odd taste, thus ruining a fabulous product.

I've been having a hard time finding the small cans of Blue Diamond "Honey Roasted Almonds" at the supermarkets, despite all the other flavors being carried. It's as if Blue Diamond just, for some reason, *wants* this product to fail. First they make it hard to get the canned version, then they completely change the taste of a great product and package it in a canister, using a name that is so similar that it contains all the same words, but without a hint that it's not the same product.

I'd contact Blue Diamond and complain, but I already know that they never respond to customers despite having a contact link on their website. In the past, I wrote to them when they test-marketed and then removed some wonderful silvered almonds (not "slivered" but silvered, as in almonds with a very light sugary coating); when I wrote to ask, instead of appreciating my interest as a customer, they simply ignored me.

So I'm offering this review as a warning to anyone else who might make the same mistake, and think that these almonds will be like the similarly-named canned "Honey Roasted Almonds" from the same company. The ones in the can are great; these are just plain awful, and I'll be throwing out 2.9 canisters of 3 purchased.
351064351064B0034KN29OAZN88CCKEQN0Gary Cavener2331217116800Nice salt on a very dry nut.OK, I like a little richness. These nuts have a flavorful salt taste, but are almost too dry to get down your throat.
351065351065B0034KN29OA2TP8VCDYHH3MTJackie P. "Loca"0031350432000The taste is crunchy,I love these almonds. They are my favorite to date and I would definitely buy again. The taste is crunchy, they are well toasted and the salt that has been added is just perfect. Not too little, not too much. Best I have ever eaten!!
351066351066B0034KN29OA2ILSYQM0CO9SCR. Townsend0021349740800Too Much Sugar!This is basically candy masquerading as a "healthy" snack. They taste good - because they have three different kinds of sugar in them! Blue Diamond wants you to think that eating sugar is a healthy snack - c'mon!

I purchased these thinking they were sweetened with stevia. Yeah, there's a miniscule amount of stevia (very last ingredient) - but sugars are the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th ingredient listed. These have corn maltodextrin - the worst thing there is on the glycemic index (can you say fat formation?). Now I'm stuck with 3 containers of this sugar snack.
351067351067B0034KN29OA3DZ7YTDAI7NUGN. Colonna "Nick C"0051349136000Always fresh!These are the best tasting almonds. I buy them in bulk to share at work. Any time someone finds cheaper almonds, they always come back to these because they can't be beat.
351068351068B0034KN29OA3GV9YG4LWSDKNAllieD2040051348185600Like Snickerdoodle cookies!I love these almonds!! They taste just like a snickerdoodle cookie, but make for a much healthier snack! One of my favorites of the Blue Diamond Oven Roasted varieties. Buying them in a 6-pack is more cost-effective for me, especially now that I can't find them in my grocery store. I wish they came in the large resealable bag like some of the other flavors, but for now I'll stick with the 6 container pack.

Almonds are a good source of magnesium. One ounce contain approximately 20% of the RDA for an adult recommended dietary allowance (RDA)
Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) the amounts of selected nutrients considered adequate to meet the known nutrient needs of healthy people. The RDA is based on scientific knowledge and has been presented by a committee of the Food and Nutrition Board (FNB) of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS). The Canadian equivalent is the Recommended Nutrient Intakes. RDA is generally accepted throughout the world as a valid source of information. At least 40 different nations have as well as organizations have published standards similar to the RDA.

Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body and is essential to good health. Approximately 50% of total body magnesium is found in bone. The other half is found predominantly inside cells of body tissues and organs. Only 1% of magnesium is found in blood, but the body works very hard to keep blood levels of magnesium constant.
Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. There is an increased interest in the role of magnesium in preventing and managing disorders such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. Dietary magnesium is absorbed in the small intestines. Are you taking enough magnesium in the diet? The recommended daily allowance is 300mgs/day for men, 350mgs for women. Magnesium is extremely safe by mouth - too much simply causes diarrhea. Try increasing the amount of magnesium you take by mouth until it causes diarrhea, then reduce the dose slightly so it does not. This is called taking magnesium to bowel tolerance (just like using vitamin C to bowel tolerance.

Almonds are a good source of Fiber.
One ounce contains approximately 12% of the RDA for an adult.
So, in summary, Almonds are a very healthy snack, so what's left to say?

Two things:
1st be cautious about "bowel tolerance" or "happy bowels" if you prefer.
2nd Taste. I realize that taste is a personal thing. That's why they make chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla.

Here's my current favorites"

1st Blue Diamond Dark mint dark chocolate (reminds me of the chocolate mint Girl Scout Cookies with less sugar).

2nd Blue diamond Dark Chocolate Oven Roasted
3rd Blue diamond Blue Butter Toffee
4thd Blue Diamond Almonds Bold Habanero BBQ (reminds me of BBQ potato chips again with less sugar).
5th Bold Blazin Buffalo Wing
6th Blue Diamond Almonds Cinnamon Brown Sugar
7th Blue Diamond Almonds Lime `n Chili
8th Blue Diamond Almonds Smokehouse
9th Bold Wasabi & Soy Sauce

But that's just me: you might have a completely different take on these flavors.
4th and 5th are very close.

351069351069B0034KN29OA1SQPBEUL9VEDRRuth0041348012800Delicious and healthy treat!I wouldn't call these almonds sweet, but they do have just the right hint of sweet flavor that the almond is elevated and feels like a treat. The taste and texture of almonds doesn't particularly appeal to me, but they're such a healthy snack that I'm glad to find this delicious option. Also, the small container is the perfect size to have on your desk or keep in the car, or use as stocking stuffers like I plan to do for a couple of my healthy eating conscious friends!
351070351070B0034KN29OA18W1DLQGPFLXGJust a shopper "Shopper"0011347408000You are only getting one container!I purchased 2 other types of Blue Diamond almonds on the same day, and they were both around $11 for a pack of 3. T his one was only ONE 8 oz. container, and I assumed it was at least 2-3 containers since the cost was over $8.
351071351071B0034KN29OA1XWVBI4ZUM9B8VLee0051346976000Yummy!Nice sweet treat with some nutritional value. These are fantastic! The only thing is I can find them in more local store at a lower cost.
351072351072B0034KN29OA2RNC1NMKN1Y2CamVetteGirl0051344211200YUM!!!!I LOVE the Blue Diamond Butter Toffee and The Chocolate. This is my first try with the Cinnamon and they are fabulous! I eat and live low carb and eat a lot of nuts...the flavored Blue Diamond Almonds are hard to find, so I am happy to find them on Amazon. Even better to have them delivered to my door FAST & FREE! Thanks Amazon and Blue Diamond!

351087351087B0034KN29OA18KXN2MQAPKCOroger8450051325289600great valuethese are a good thing for you and sometimes hard to find in a larger container at the store, so these make it much easier and there a good price here.
351088351088B0034KN29OAUMGVFDBLIC86FireFly "school daze"0051322870400AwesomeThese are incredible! Eating these makes me not want to eat candy. I love these! The price isn't that great though. I think Blue Diamond should save money by packaging them in something cheaper than plastic. I did notice it on Amazon in a box, but the price looks odd - over $50? Too bad Amazon doesn't stock this, so no Free Shipping.
351089351089B0034KN29OA1MV52KBC9HK75Fairjoy0051318809600Ideal Healthy SnackThe almonds tastes all right. Since it is too dry, the salt can hardly stay on surface. Therefore, it is not salty enough. On the whole, it is a healthy snack. I hope this type of almonds can have subscription service and discount.
351090351090B0034KN29OA2CNEFGEV07ZQ0Eric Balkan0051314921600Butter Toffee almonds are sooo good, but hi-carbI've tried several of the Blue Diamond jar almonds and the Butter Toffee almonds are the best. They would probably be my favorite almond, but they're high-carb. I guess the trick is to only eat a few at a time.... We can all do that, right? :-)

I agree with the other reviewer who said that the Blue Diamond almonds in the cans are better than the ones in the jars -- my favorite are the Vinegar & Salt -- but the Butter Toffee almonds are the exception.
351073351073B0034KN29OA1C22YQP04YPOVA. Schaefer0051343174400AmazingI love salted and smoked almonds. I had never even heard of Butter Toffee almonds before. But, wow, I'm glad I tried them. They are just sweet enough to satisfy my sweet tooth without overwhelming you with a sugar taste.
Another reviewer was right, they taste a lot like french toast. I'm definately buying these again.
351074351074B0034KN29OA1FII6B4HLS8XRShawn Walden "OtisBLKR1"0051343001600boy these are some tasty nuts !!Ive had some tasty nuts before but these are exceptionaly good. try them ! im very happy with this product
351075351075B0034KN29OA1IKOG44PHFNYSBrigitte Hoch0051342051200Should almost be labelled a "BOLD" flavorButter Toffee is not a flavor I thought I would like - for some reason the name makes me think of an icky flavor. However, I became hooked at first bite. This flavor is much sweeter than the Honey Roasted. It certainly becomes my top "dessert almonds" when in need of that sweet replacement.

Absolutely great for those on a low-carb or Keto diet - only 6 Net Carbs per serving. The bold, sweet flavor keeps you satisfied after only a small amount.

Highly recommended!
351076351076B0034KN29OA3PNBZ677VZHO1Illini Fan0051341532800Best almonds everThese almonds are my favorite almonds. Wal-Mart used to carry them, but now I have to order online. They are the perfect balance of cinnamon and sugar without being overpoweringly sweet.
351077351077B0034KN29OA2VPMHJSA5P7QQG G0051340582400If You Like Almonds and You Like Cinnamon You will like theseThe Almonds are very very fresh tasting. The cinnamon adds an extra bonus of goodness to the almonds with a great flavor. We keep them in the fridge. We also mix them with all the other nuts we have making our own nut mixture. Excellent snack with protein.

Just ordered some more of them.
351078351078B0034KN29OA34NUFLGSRQYB6QueenMab0051340150400Love the new flavor!I love these for a snack. I get a nice taste of chocolate and mint (in addition to the almond, of course), but it isn't super sweet. I hope Blue Diamond keeps coming out with more flavors. The Butter Toffee is great too.
351079351079B0034KN29OA118AULZTIXJXLBK "Dad of 2 teenage boys"0051336780800A heathly snack we all loveGreat taste. The Blue Diamond flavors are way better than the Emerald flavors. Great between meals snack that we all eat. Also grab to put in baggies for lunches.
351080351080B0034KN29OA8QZJUJN7RH1GHipknitizer0051335744000Best Almonds Hands DownAfter trying every kind of almond out there over the years, I will take these flavorful Blue Diamond almonds any day. They are fresh, salted just right and not greasy/oily. I try to eat a handful a day, usually as a mid-afternoon snack for optimum health benefits. The handy container is easy to use and even indicates portion size. Unfortunately, this type of almonds is getting more and more difficult to find in my local stores, so I was happy to be able to order a 6-pack from Amazon to have in my pantry.
351081351081B0034KN29OA2NT1F84CD2T4YJen S.0051335571200Our favoriteThese are our absolute favorite almonds and love that there isn't any fake sugars in them. I'll take more calories with real sweeteners any day over sucralose in the other brands. And this flavor is DELICIOUS. YUM!
351082351082B0034KN29OA18Z7ICRLVHBBPCatherine S.0051332547200Yummy in my Tummy :)I ordered these lovely almonds a few weeks ago, as I often find myself jonesing for junk food, and I thought that if I had something that was good for me around, I would be less likely to grab something terrible. These nuts are packed with nutrition, and they taste amazing. They have just enough flavor to make me want more, but the fact that they are high in fat makes it difficult to eat too many in one sitting; I'm satiated with two handfuls. I go through one little container every week or so. They are perfect for anyone concerned with nutrition or trying to put on or keep muscle- they pack 6 grams of protein in 1 oz. I will definitely be re-purchasing these nuts. I wasn't so keen on the idea of the canisters, as I don't like producing so much waste, but I have purchased nuts (peanuts etc) in the past in bulk, and they did go bad before I finished eating them.
These nuts have kept me out of the icecream, chocolate chips, and other naughty sweet things that have little nutritional content. These nuts taste like they should be bad for you, but they are more similar to vitamins than junk food; read the back for the nutritional content: 35% Vitamin E, 15% Phosphorus, 20% Magnesium, 35% Manganese....the list goes on...:)

Update: I ordered my second shipment of these. I love these and I eat a handful of these almonds after my morning banana yogurt shake and with my vitamins :)
