My concerns of the environmental sins of almond plants get pushed aside when there are new flavors to try!Nuts, like almonds, make it very easy to snack on the go. I was intrigued when I saw these new flavors: Blueberry and Wasabi & Soy Sauce.So, I’ll review these bite size flavor bombs in the order that I consumed them.First, the Blueberry Almonds were found at 7-Eleven.They’re like shimmery purple gems! So cute! But, how did they taste? Well….When I opened the package, the smell of sweet blueberry perfume-y-ness filled my nose. That’s no exaggeration; it was really pleasant.The taste of these things were just as pleasing!These Blueberry flavored almonds are really, really good!The Blueberry coating is where it’s at. Although visual aesthetics are not a reliable indication of flavor.. in this case, it is accurate.These would be a nice alternative to candy as well.Please forgive me, I don’t have a picture of the ingredients!Anyway, next we’ll cover the savory part of this review: Blue Diamond BOLD Wasabi & Soy Sauce Flavored Almonds.
It’s easy to see the flavor profile they’re going for here. But how does it add up?Well, my first impression – I was a bit skeptical because the flavored coating was about 50% less than the Blueberry Almonds.And then I tasted them!They’re good!A little spicy, a little salty.Honestly, they could have been a little more boldly flavored. A little more spicy.Or, a lot more spicy.Wasabi heat doesn’t really linger and for that fact alone I believe that these could have been more heavily seasoned.Anyway, I ate these fast. As in, in one sitting, these were inhaled into my face. It was a very tasty moment that I won’t soon forget.Blue Diamond Flavored Almonds has been a great experience to my taste buds. Thanks Blue Diamond.I’d purchase both of these snacks again, no doubt.
