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
10th Bold Salt & Vinegar

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

225120225120B001LNTY70A3914DFUXE505ZJimmy Tran2251330214400Delicious!These almonds are my favorite flavor from Blue Diamond. Not too sweet, not too spicy. More sweet than spicy though so I wouldn't be afraid of getting it even if you can't normally handle spicy foods.
225091225091B001LNTY70A2DPCHKF3M6BF2jax0051214611200good stuffthese are the best flavor - very nice lime/chile taste goes great with the almonds. i agree with ms.cox!
225092225092B001LNTY70A1G60ANYI0HMEUJeddy 31241319846400A nice enough flavor, but I wouldn't describe it as either "Blazin'" or "Buffalo Wing."I'll start off by noting that I love almonds, I eat almonds every day, and I particularly love Blue Diamond almonds. The most important qualities of almonds, for me, are freshness, quality, and careful roasting. Blue Diamond almonds get 5 stars on all those parameters.

And I've tried all their flavors, especially their "BOLD" line. Alas, their definition of "BOLD" is apparently "a little too spicy for kids." This flavor is okay, as a change of pace, but doesn't exactly set my taste buds a-"blazin'." It doesn't taste like Buffalo wings -- it's too sweet and not vinegary enough. And it's definitely not spicy enough. I realize that real Buffalo wing spice can be brutal, and might not suit a mass-market snacking product. But really, they haven't even tried here. There's not even a hint of Tabasco, for example.

As I said, this is a pleasant enough flavor, especially if you need a little change from, say, my favorite, Jalapeno Smokehouse. But it doesn't taste much like anything in particular. They could have called it "BOLD Generic Faux-Spicy Snack to be Eaten Brainlessly While Watching the Game" flavor and it would have been more accurate.
225093225093B001LNTY70A1SCANWWQTEG9ITheLastCoyote1231310601600Not the best flavorOrdered these because I wanted to try them and none of the stores in my area seem to carry them. Normally I eat the habanero bbq or the wasabi.

For spiciness they are better than the habanero but not as much as the wasabi can be (though in all fairness the wasabi is in a whole different taste spectrum anyway)

Flavorwise is where they lose out. They taste MUCH saltier and the flavor itself is overpowered by that until you get to the end zing where the spice kicks in.

In summary, they are edible and I will finish off the cans that I ordered but I will go back to purchasing my wasabi and habanero after that.
225094225094B001LNTY70A1N5FSCYN4796FPhilip R. Heath "Gadgets, Music, & Books"1231260230400Not As Balanced As Other Bold Flavors, But Not BadI went out on a limb trying Blue Diamond Almonds Bold - Wasabi & Soy flavor. I had never had wasabi before, but I have like many of the other "Bold" flavors Blue Diamond makes (Jalapeno Smokehouse and Habanero BBQ) so I decided to give them a try. The flavor is definitely bold. It reminds me of the horseradish flavor that is common in many deli mustards. It has grown on me over time, but I would like to see a little more balance with the "soy" flavor. This is where I like the other flavors that I mentioned better as I think these are bold but better balanced. If you love wasabi or horseradish, this will probably be right up your alley. Combine that with almonds being one of the healthier snack options, and you've good a good treat. Much like the other flavors, the bold flavor makes moderation fairly easy as I could not imagine going overboard on these. Enjoy!
225095225095B001LNTY70A2N2X7L7LB3S6XChris0131337212800Taste kind of strange....To start, I'm a big fan of Blue Diamond brand Almonds. I really like the bold flavors, Habanero BBQ and Lime & Chili. I had never seen the Blazin' Buffalo Wing flavor at the local grocery store so I ordered them here on Amazon.

When you first put an almond in your mouth you get the initial hint of buffalo wing flavor but it quickly goes away and then just tastes kind of strange.

They aren't bad but they aren't my favorite. Every bodies taste buds are different so you might like them but I don't think I'll buy this flavor again.
225096225096B001LNTY70A1KIW2VOQ9M8F8rhonda0151334188800Blue Diamond Almonds Habanero BBQI love the product, they have great taste, easy to order and we did not have a long wait time to recieve them. I will order again.
225097225097B001LNTY70AH92J7FT08PA6William G. Sanders "Bill"0131298678400Not the best in the WorldThis product was delivered on time, but I can not say that it was worth the money. When you look at the price per oz. it becomes much more expensive than you think.
225098225098B001LNTY70A4JSQFCKVKX2AJ. Kort0151271548800The 2nd Best Nut of ManMy fav bold BD almond by far. Completely addicting. TY Lord that they are pretty expensive. Not the best nut though. That distinction, of course, goes to Mauna Loa garlic and onion fav Mac.
225099225099B001LNTY70AOSYECY7F2T3RDavid1351242259200After a few cans, I'm hooked.It took two or three cans, but I love these now. When I first tried these, I thought the taste was not as "bold" as I would like it to be. I do wish they were a tad stronger and hotter on the wasabi taste, but I am hooked on these now. I eat some almost every day.
225100225100B001LNTY70AXQP8ZXQ251FMBilly Smith0221340755200Not worth the moneyThese have no bite at all...Nothing. They should scratch off the "Wasabi" from the label... on the verge of false advertisibg..."Bold"...My behind...the only reason for 2 stars is that they are at least Almonds....
225101225101B001LNTY70A1PMHZ9AN1EFEIJeff Biehle0231296604800Eh, they're all rightThese almonds aren't bad--better than just eating regular salted almonds. But I tried the Jalapeno Smokehouse almonds first, and I like those a LOT more than the Wasabi & Soy. I found that I got a stronger "kick" from the horseradish if I sucked on the almond first before eating it.
225102225102B001LNTY70A2HHSZXISP0TKIChi-Chi0321335744000I Didn't KnowI didn't like these.
I guess it's my fault for not liking them, because I actually have never tried wasabi, but I like asian flavors in food and adore all of Blue Diamond's bold flavors, so when I saw this in the store, I was like hey why not.

Now I know why not. These nuts were horrific...they had this...harsh acerbic taste to them that I just could not enjoy. I ended up wiping most of the flavoring off and chopping the nuts up to put in stuff like salads. The nuts themselves are high quality and always taste fresh, so at least I was able to get some use from them. However, I would never buy these again and if you are not experienced with wasabi, you may want to think twice before buying them lol.
225103225103B001LNTY70AI8Z1GP75O9J4Phyllis J. Kirk "sttchurchlady"0331237161600Blue Diamond Wasabi AlmondsThe wasabi flavor was not as strong as I like. I have had others (in the large 39 ounce plastic jar from Costco that were better, but they are no longer available. These are an adequate substitute. The smaller container is handy.

225104225104B001LNTY70A2TSYFAPY1D64RStephen E Eck0411327622400What Happened?I used to love the smokehouse almonds but the last few cans I bought SUCKED! Bland with little flavor. Does anyone know if they changed ingredients or recipes or something?
225105225105B001LNTY70A3Q3EVDIIIRLLLShorty0431307577600Taste great, price not so great!!The cans are teeny tiny, and for what they charge it's just not worth the expense. Also, I really hate how they charge different prices for different flavors. That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. The product itself is yummy, just not happy about the prices.
225106225106B001LNTY70ARRNOA2H9V4ZZJ. Hale31121295827200Not what I hoped for, but probably should've expectedI picked up a can of these after the glowing reviews I read for it. To keep it short, it has a very authentic wasabi taste. It literally tastes like an almond dipped in wasabi sauce. And that, to me, doesn't make the most appealing snack. I find the wasabi flavor overwhelming, and none of the soy flavor coming through. I thought it'd come through as a more balanced flavor, but that's not the case. I won't be eating anymore, personally. I gave it two stars since it is wasabi flavor, and it certainly tastes like that.
225107225107B001LNTY70A4JSQFCKVKX2AJ. Kort11011271548800Where's the Lime?Tastes like a poor Ranch fav almond. Barely any lime. What are these 5 star reviewers eatting anyway. Proably the wasaibi and soy bold BD almonds. Save your money and calories, do not buy these. Buy extra wasaibi.
225108225108B001LNTY70A2LUMWYGAOS4ZRVance Oglesbee0921323907200NastyI deserved to get a nasty product when I selected a product flavored with Wasabi and Soy Sauce. If you really like Wasabi and Soy Sauce, buy this product. The nuts are of a high quality.
225109225109B001LNTY70A10TYGME2FQHO7Dr.J.A.P.121251239667200I LOVE this stuffI'd been buying it for years WHEN I COULD FIND IT, at the local grocery. Generally buying 5 or 6 cans cause I couldn't be sure it would be there next time I went. As such, I was thrilled to see Amazon selling it in bulk and cheaper than at my local store.

These are almonds... so you get the health benefits of that. They are very tasty, with a mild wasabi tang... I've shared them with friends and they love them.

Granted, these don't provide the entertainment value of the wasabi peas from the Japanese place that blow out your sinuses. But Its still a very tasty, semi healthy (lots of salt), snack that fills my need for something crunchy.

MUCH healthier than potato chips.
225110225110B001LNTY70A1G60ANYI0HMEUJeddy 37751319846400Very tasty but not very Habanero-yThis is one of my favorites in the Blue Diamond "BOLD" flavors line. There's a nice balance of heat vs sweet, and the saltiness isn't overwhelming. You can eat 'em by the handful, and probably will once you taste them.

However, true hot-pepper fans know that the heat of the Habanero pepper is a fearsome thing. You won't find much of it here, just a little hint. That's probably for the best, given that most people can't tolerate the blazing intensity of those devilish little peppers. But I kind of wish Blue Diamond would put out a "BOLD, and This Time We Mean It" line for those of us who really do love spicy foods.
225111225111B001LNTY70A2KP45DO3RY4RGCheeryToes6651320019200Just right for this low carb snacker!OH MY WORD!! I love these, I love the bold flavored Blue Diamond almonds. Love this flavor first, then the wasabi then the salt vinegar. The Wasabi has a gram or so more of carbs, so I generally choose this one or the salt and vinegar. The problem for me is I'm an addict. If I got 3 pounds of these almonds, I'd eat 3 pounds of these almonds in short order. That being said. They are delicious, salty, a little spicy with a touch of sweeet - they are fantastic! This price is better than I get them at Wally World for the 6oz can and they are cheaper there than anywhere else. So, buy these, buy them now and hide the other bags from yourself (or send them to me) ...they are SO good, I'm eating them now! :

Hey Amazon, this is sold and shipped by you, it would be ever so nice if this came on the subscribe and save!
225112225112B001LNTY70A2YSA6RZMKD9LCJp5541322179200Not SpicyThese taste great but aren't even as spicy as something that would be labeled jalapeno. I will still buy these but if you are expecting spicy don't be surprised for mild.
225113225113B001LNTY70A2L4FXJZISAL4TP. Lee5551276214400Addicting is right!Wasabi! Almonds! What's not to love? Can't stop eating these, glad they come in packs of six...
225114225114B001LNTY70A1N5FSCYN4796FPhilip R. Heath "Gadgets, Music, & Books"3351251244800A Great Spicy, Healthy Snack!!Blue Diamond Bold Jalapeno Smokehouse Almonds are a great snack. Almonds are one of the healthiest nuts that you can eat, and the Jalapeno Smokehouse flavor is very similar to chipotle. This isn't too surprising since a chipotle is a smoked jalapeno after all. From a nutrition stand point, the only special consideration that doesn't come will all almonds is the 180 mg of sodium per serving. Unless you get a plain, unsalted nut this is pretty typical. I like to keep a can of these either in my desk or in the pantry at home for snacking. Grabbing a handful of these is great between meals when hunger strikes. So if you are looking for a spicy snack that is fairly healthy, give these a try.
225115225115B001LNTY70A25PM9JGHPU8EIWes3351245196800My mouth is watering while writing this reviewI just tried these for the first time last night...and wow, what a product! The lime and chili combination for these almonds is AMAZING. The flavor is INTENSE, powerful and oh, so delicious!! I am going to buy a bunch more of these to snack on, and I have to say, I will be snacking on THESE almonds for a long time to come. And seriously - I'm salivating while I write this!! I'm going to go eat some right now!
225116225116B001LNTY70A10Q1JRWMTOLT0Victoria M. Thomas3351242604800addictive!These are great! I can't stop eating these! The amount of wasabi flavor was perfect for me. I am definitely going to have to try the other flavors
225117225117B001LNTY70A35USKFKAVA0GIS. Cibik "Online shopaholic!!"3351221091200Awwesome!!I absolutely love these salt and vinegar almonds!!!
Being a fan of salt and vinegar potato chips when I saw these I knew I had to try them. Finished off the can within a couple days!! These are truly very good!! My only problem is I couldn't find them again in any store around here so I remembered my fav place to shop Amazon.com and knew they wouldn't fail me! Thank you!!
225118225118B001LNTY70A361PLXEWB9UC1*Auntie Lynn* "color & pigment specialist; wa...3351206489600reallllllly goodfirst of all -- they're good. really good. go back for more and lick the bowl when they're gone - good.

That said -- they're not quite as bold as you might hope. I mean -- I'm from Texas. Bold should be really BOLD. But they are good -- so we'll just overlook it. Yummy.

And they are almonds -- one of those wonder nuts so full of B vitamins and other good stuff that you should be eating an ounce a day just for health sake. But they're good enough that it's not exactly an intelligence test whether you'll want to eat them.
