439591439591B000ZSX4D2A1FJEIB7HQ22MEMarty Whitman5551334188800Yes!!!I could live off of these! I'm not kidding. The regular salted almonds are good too, but I prefer the Smokehouse almonds.
439592439592B000ZSX4D2A15TTWZQNBCDJTStephanie Murphy5551230249600Tasty, healthy, good price.I love almonds in general, and this particular brand is quite good. They taste great, with just the right amount of salt and oil (for me, anyway).

They're individually packaged in 6 oz. cans, which makes them an easy and portable snack. Portion control is also easier with the small can size.

I've ordered a few packs of these almonds, and while there is some slight variation in the taste from batch to batch (some are roasted a bit darker than others), I have always found them fresh and tasty.

Almonds are relatively healthy too - high in protein, a good source of magnesium, calcium, and manganese, and full of unsaturated fats.

I haven't seen organic roasted, salted almonds from this company, but I hope they offer them eventually at a decent price. One thing I would also like to see is some kind of assurance that the can liner is free of BPA.
439593439593B000ZSX4D2A12J78776LOMELV. Martin "V."4441207267200A 'Flavorite' TreatVery tasty and great for a late night snack, a sitting at your desk snack, and/or a traveling treat . If you're not a big fan of salty treats, steer clear.
439594439594B000ZSX4D2A2OL5WLCNZVD9Knonpareil3351320192000Perfect little guysYup, no stray pieces, just whole brown almonds. Which is to say that these are not "blanched" - blanching being the process that removes the actual skin of the almond (not the husk) and leaves a pale buff-colored product. And the description of "lightly salted" is accurate. I can barely taste it. The can says the ingredients are almonds, vegetable oil (canola, safflower and/or sunflower) and salt. That's it. Gluten-free. Interestingly enough, there is no indication on either the can or their website whether these are raw or roasted. And I couldn't tell by eating them. But Blue Diamond responded to my email query, saying they are in fact oil roasted - have to be "Pasteurized", per a new California law. [You might want to know that this is a "light" roasting. I would say that it goes part way to a roasted flavor, remaining as healthy as possible while conforming to the legislation I mentioned. My taste preference is actually for the flavor of a fully roasted almond, bad me.]

They taste fresh and almondy, as they should. They make a wonderful addition in both taste and appearance, to my just-created Nonpareil Trail Mix which is lo-carb and gluten-free as I am trying even harder to follow this kind of diet. I'm pleased to report that these Blue Diamond Almonds are properly dated: on the bottom of the can it says "BEST BEFORE JUL 20 14". That gives plenty of time to use up six little cans.

And about the cans, they seem to be metal bottom and sides, making them superior for storage although the plastic replaceable top with sealed metallic foil under it might be breachable by the ubiquitous rodent. The little cans are nicely reusable.
439595439595B000ZSX4D2A18JI6XEQ6PQ3BCharles Gillenwater "Dr Charlie"2251254614400Smokehouse AlmondsExcellent flavor which we can find no where around us locally. Ate these as children and enjoyed them so much. Excellent light snack.
439596439596B000ZSX4D2A1X1CEGHTHMBL1jjceo1151339372800One of my very favorite flavors!I love all of the Blue Diamond Almond flavors and they are my favorite snack. This one is one of my favorite flavors and I eat these almonds for a snack because I view them as being healthier than other types of snack foods. This flavor is ideal as you get the freshness of perfectly roasted almonds with just a little dose of salt.

One serving of these nuts is 170 Calories and it contains 6 grams of protein, 5 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber and only 1 gram of sugar and 1 gram of saturated fat. You also get calcium, vitamin E and magnesium from the almonds which are good for your body, heart and bones. I would rather eat 28 of these almonds for 170 calories than 11 potato chips for the same calories and none of the dietary benefits.

This flavor has only 2% of your daily intake of sodium which is good for any snack food.

The only problem with these almonds is that they taste so good you have to be able to close the can and walk away. If you don't like the super bold and spicy flavors then this flavor is the perfect one for you. This is as good as it gets in snack foods and good for your body and diet.

I like all of the Blue Diamond Almond products as I feel that they are healthier for you as long as you don't overdo it in eating them.
439597439597B000ZSX4D2AYZDH088ZKYUNDarryl Webber1151324771200Very tasty when the price is rightThese things taste great but the price on Amazon swings wildly (and widely) so stock up when the prices is low.
439598439598B000ZSX4D2A12DU5M8U6QGIGLAM1151314576000Tastes the bestThese are perfect for traveling. On the airplane when they offer you peanuts, pretzels or cookies you can take out an alternate, healthy snack. The only thing is, now I'm addicted to them, they're so good.
439599439599B000ZSX4D2A2754OLX4JI486Fury1151311033600Salted AlmondsIf you like snacks that are a healthier alternative to other options, almonds are a great way to go. These almonds are lightly salted and roasted. They are absolutely delicious. I could easily see getting in trouble with these since I could sit down and eat the whole can in a sitting and not even realize it. I snack on them pretty much every morning to tide me over until lunch without having to eat a big meal or something very unhealthy for me.
439600439600B000ZSX4D2A3TIV6J1X9BA46Naka1151302480000Sweet memoriesThese are the best smoked almonds I have ever had. I remember getting these as a child on the airplane as a snack and have been searching for them for years. Finally found them and I will NEVER eat any other smoked almond. Blue diamond almonds are forever!!!
439601439601B000ZSX4D2A1X2Z2X65EQEG4Isa A. Campbell1151297641600Delicious, perfectly salted and freshGreat fresh product if you like roasted almonds. No more frustrating attempt to buy some that match these in the grocery store. Free shipping and come to your home. Great for snacks.!
439602439602B000ZSX4D2AJCK6OKNWGIYGMike K1151294876800Love these almondsThe deal I got on these was amazing so that, combined with the fact that I love this brand of Almonds made ordering these no-brainer. I happen to love all of Blue Diamond's different flavors for their almonds. This flavor - Smokehouse is the best IMO. It's got just the right amount of smoky flavor to it without being overbearing. I believe this is Blue Diamond's best selling variety of Almonds. These come in 1.5 ounce packages and for me each package is good for 2-3 servings - about a handful each serving. Very tasty
439603439603B000ZSX4D2A2ALRZ0ENQLYY5Jon "Your tomorrow, shipped yesterday...arriv...1151283299200Blue Diamond onlyI've tried a lot of almonds out there but I always seem to come back to these. Nicely sized can and a good deal here on Amazon. Lasts me a while between purchases and saves me money too. What can I say, they're delicious.
439604439604B000ZSX4D2A3OXJ6N5FUHGXFAl2341342656000Purchased a bag with way too much salt - Company provided a replacement: almonds were perfectOriginal review -- I thought I had purchased salt with almonds in it. The amount of salt is RIDICULOUS and very unhealthy. Almonds are a healthy snack but not if they are this salty.

UPDATE -- I contacted the company and they provided a replacement. The new bag was perfect, the almonds were tasty and not too salty. It seems that I purchased a bag from a bad batch. The company was prompt at correcting the problem. I originally gave the product a 1 star rating, I'm updating the review and giving the product 4 stars.
439605439605B000ZSX4D2A368USVQJ2DUCSanibeljac0051349827200The best tasting almonds lower sodium is just a bonus
439606439606B000ZSX4D2A28J2SWLFS8Z5LGali0021349136000Good Almonds, Terrible PriceThese are good, though a bit too salty for my taste. But you can get these for about 40% less at any grocery store. Save your money!
439607439607B000ZSX4D2A39E3BK969RI3EKristina Chung0031348704000good tasteIf you like an almond this is a good product and it is cheaper than the name brand. To me this product taste the same as the name brand, I like paying less and having the same taste!
439608439608B000ZSX4D2AJWD2QR81RLX1Douglas K Turley0051346889600Delicous salty snackIts hard to stick to the rule of doing everything "in moderation" with these tasty snacks around. Salty, smokey, a wonderful and more nutritious alternative to potato chips. Good with cocktails, good by the handful. I've snacked on them before dinner, watching tv, having a drink, or at bedtime. And did I mention the price? The 3 pack is so much cheaper than buying singles at the grocerystore. All round great snack!

439610439610B000ZSX4D2A27KTLDSBWXNEDDavid C. Filmer "David Filmer"0051334793600Delicious Blue-Diamond quality, half the sodiumI need to watch my sodium - but I'm not really a fan of salty foods in the first place.

These almonds are perfect, at half the salt. I would prefer them over the regular salted almonds any day! I have no idea why anyone would want to put MORE salt on these delicious nuts.

The three-count 16-ounce bags (with Prime shipping) pop on and off of Amazon - buy them when they are available. Otherwise you must buy the six-pack of small cans, at a higher price per ounce.
439611439611B000ZSX4D2A3RU7QI4PLON76fancydancey0051323388800TASTY!What's not to like? Delicious smokehouse almonds in the perfect size package. I keep them in my locker at the gym for a post workout snack. They are very smokey-don't leave an open package in your car, like I did...It made my car smell like cigarettes. However, this is unlikely to happen as it is hard to only eat part of the package as they are so good.
439612439612B000ZSX4D2A3R7RQ6H059YRASunny0051310947200Good almondsWe like these almonds and were unable to get them at our local store anymore so found them on Amazon and ordered them.

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.

439616439616B000ZSX4D2AZ66W0PC0SRY1C. Cruz0151325980800Great snackI love the portability and taste of this snack. I wish the caloric and sodium count was less, But the protein count is perfect.
439617439617B000ZSX4D2ALE3LQ8C99YKEshauntell19710141324080000i love them after i rub some of the salt off!smokehouse almonds are great but i just can't take all of the salt so i rub some of the salt off of them and then i go to town, if they sold lightly salted ones i would probably not only be addicted but broke as well from eating them so much love love love this product and will buy again.
439618439618B000ZSX4D2AIHJLCZBF6KE8robert dee0151313884800deez nutz.great deal on these nuts. whole family loves these nuts. nuts for nuts. arrived fresh and tasty. great for a snack or packed in a lunch.
439619439619B000ZSX4D2A18TST0YO1NN2M. Copeland "puddykat"1311329868800Too salty to eatThese almonds had an unbelievable amount of salt on them. I love salt but this was over the top. I've bought this brand from other stores and they have never been this salty. Maybe the machine went wacko when processing these. ???
I can't eat these unless I take the time to try and wipe off the salt, which talks forever!!
439620439620B000ZSX4D2A2HXOW6CAGCQRPDylan Bishop1331257379200I love these almonds and all......but the cans were smaller than I expected for the price I paid. I dunno, I just expected to be saving a lot more than that when buying in bulk. It's the same price (about $3 a can) at the local Target. Plus, and this is a personal problem, I had a hard time being conservative with em. They are delicious (not as good as the smoked ones though which Amazon doesn't sell for some reason) and I couldn't stop eating them! I went through two cans in the first night! I love to snack, but almonds aren't the best for snacking in large quantities, and I won't explain exactly why but it messes with your digestive system. Anyways, the nuts are perfectly fine and it's a decent price (considering you're not paying sales tax outside of NY and that there's free shipping if you're patient) so I can't not recommend them, although I will never buy em again in this quantity.
