We went to Sams Club yesterday, and I found the most fantastic almonds ever!
I can't have salt, or sugar... anymore.
These are by Emerald (distributed by Diamond) and are dry roasted, cocoa covered with sucrolose and acesulfame as light sweeteners.
I use almonds as a snack. I try to do them for my daily magnesium.
These are just "right". Not too much chocolate (very light), no sugar no salt (25mg sodium/serving), not too hard to chew, and all around really nice! I confess I am not a big chocolate consumer (unlike my chocoholic husband), so this dark cocoa is perfect for me. Cocoa is high in antioxidants too.
There used to be cocoa almonds in high end candy stores, and those were messy to eat. These have a think coating on them so nothing transfers to your hands. A welcome feature for me.
Even better was the PRICE--- 9.63 for a humongous jar 38oz !
I'm going back to buy several more before they are gone.
(compare to Amazon 44oz for 24.92.) The expiration date on my jar is Nov 2010. I save these tough jars too, for my crystals and stones/rocks for my artwork. For those of you who love to save stuff like this, you will LOVE just the jar! LOLOLOL
If you go to Amazon and look them up, you'll find 96 ~~ 5 star reviews! Those who didn't give it 5 stars were disappointed that there wasn't MORE chocolate. But for me, this is the best part of the nut. I just don't do sweets much anymore, and this does not break the sweet ban in any way for me.
