Blue Diamond's Wasabi and Soy Sauce Almonds

OH MY LORD!

OK, this is gonna sound weird, but these almonds may in fact be my newest favorite snack in the world.

I recently got married and went to Alaska for my honeymoon. I have family there. Well, my cousin Leo turned me on to these and I've searched all over for them here in Chicago. I've turned up nothing.

Three days ago, my wife came home with them from Walgreen's drug store. They stock them in three sizes. A 99 cent pouch, a small canister and a huge bag. I have three huge bags in my cabinet right now. Actually, I have 2 huge bags and one that is like 3/4s gone.

I am a happy man.

Try some and tell me what you think. I think think they are more addictive than Pringles. (you know what they say about Pringles...)

PS - How ya all been? I have been absent again. I hate not being here.

Never tried them, Ardge. But do love the Blue Diamond Smokehouse ones. They are addictive!
I'll keep my eyes open for these. Thanks!

A friend was serving these almonds at a recent party and I couldn't stop eating them til she told me they contained soy. I can't eat soy. I almost cried. These are the best almonds I have ever had. I always buy BD Smokehouse almonds but these are much better.

ARDGE! Welcome back prodigal one! I'm heading out to Wally world today to do a bit of shopping so I'll see if I can find some. Sounds like a taste sensation.
