When it comes to new flavors, I am not always adventurous. But sometimes you need to take a chance – you may be pleasantly surprised. New Sriracha Blue Diamond Almonds were delicious and exactly what I needed to get out of my snacking rut.
Blue Diamond was kind enough to send two containers of their new Sriracha almonds – from their Bold Line. It’s a curious taste — really intense with strong undertones of heat. If you’re not familiar with Sriracha, it’s a hot sauce made from chili peppers, vinegar, garlic, sugar and salt. According to Wikipedia, “It’s named after the coastal city of Si Racha, in eastern Thailand, where it may have been first produced for dishes served at local seafood restaurants.” I’m typically not a spicy flavors person, but I have tried sriracha before and enjoyed it.
However, keep a glass of water next to you, you may need it. These sriracha flavored almonds from Blue Diamond makes a great afternoon snack.
I liked it a lot and so did my 9 1/2 year old son. My son loves jalepeno and buffalo sauces, so Sriracha Blue Diamond Almonds were the right snack for him. In fact, we almost spoiled our dinner snacking these delicious almonds.
