I'm glad these things come in small cans, because I've almost killed one this evening. Now I know how crackheads feel.

Those, and whole cashews! Once the can is open, I must have them all.

Did you lick the smoke-flavored salt off your fingers afterwards?

+1 for the Costco/Sam's Club tub.

Almonds are a laxative. I predict at least a 12" dump tomorrow.

I'm going to ruin you...

You know you can buy a great big bag of almonds and just toast them in a toaster oven/regular oven, right? They're even better, IMO. Dash them with popcorn or sea salt and they're wonderous.

Back in the 80's I made a few business trips to Modesto California where a LOT of almonds are grown. I think Blue Diamond is located there.

A friend was retired military, and he'd go to the PX and buy giant #10 cans of these for me for a VERY few dollars. Basically what a tiny can costs back East.

Talk about getting addicted!!

Those Blue Diamond almonds are pretty good
I also like to get almonds raw, without all the oils and salt
(they are right next to the granola on the health food isle)

That's what I was talking about. Just get a big bag and toss a bunch on a cookie sheet and toast them. Easy peasy, Japanesie.

You are currently using what is known as a "gateway nut". Soon it won't be enough or ever like it was the first time and you will have to move on to something else: Pistachios, it is only a matter of time and your weakness.

About a year and a half ago I was eating pistachios by the metric ton until I bit into one that had been a condo for a worm. I still feel nauseous thinking about it.

Up until that point, I had a system down where I could just keep a dis-assembly line going between bag, hands, mouth and trashcan.

i used to work at a nut and candy store and we would get 50lb boxes of blue diamand almonds in almost every flavor delivered. honey roasted was my favorite. if only they knew how many unfortunate almonds fell and had to be "discarded" by me...

I always buy a can or two when shopping at BJ's, they have them so close to the checkout lanes...resistance is futile!

Way too cool, eat more Pistachios and almonds, they are major cash crops in Calif. The state has a $hitload of almond & pistachios trees in the N. Calif, Central and Imperial Valleys. Pistachios is only grown in Calif, and the other major producer of pistachios is our nemesis, Iran. When you folks buy pistachios be sure to get the natural brown colored ones, not the one dyed pink or purple because the packer is trying to hide flaws in the coloring, not to mention that the dye comes off on your fingers when you eat it. Blue Diamond brand is a co-op here in Calif, much like Sunkist is for oranges.

Hey, that's right. Growing up, all pistachios were dyed red.

Nuts are very good for you. Try them raw without salt or anything you may find them to better just as they are. I dig almonds, pecans, peanuts and walnuts. Eat some every day.

Blue Diamond Almonds also come in 1.5 ounce bags, for portion control, $0.68/bag.

Jalapeno Smokehouse, Wasabi & Soy and Chili & Lime.

I use them for low-carb snack food, as they have lots of fiber.
