SACRAMENTO, CALIF. — Blue Diamond announced the addition of four new almond snacks to its portfolio, including two flavored almonds and two flavor mashups.
Elote almonds and Korean barbecue almonds will be joining the company’s flavored line. The elote-flavored almonds are topped with chili pepper, cheese and lime. The Korean barbecue almonds are covered with the flavors of soy, garlic and gochujang. Both flavors are available in a 6-oz can for a suggested retail price of $4.19.
The other two products are joining the company’s new Mash Ups line, which combines two flavors into one. Both the cinnamon and maple almonds and the dark chocolate and chili pepper almonds are available in a 14-oz bag for a suggested retail price of $6.98.
All four new products can be found at select Walmart locations around the nation, with further retail availability coming later.“We know that consumers are eager to try new flavors of their favorite snacks, and in our research, we’ve identified a growing demand for global flavors tied with savory sweetness ranking as the fastest growing snack category over the past year,” said Maya Erwin, vice president of innovation and R&D at Blue Diamond. “Expanding our portfolio of international flavors and introducing these exciting flavor combinations are some of the key ways that we're bringing consumers flavors they’ll come to crave.”
