We picked up a big ol' bag of Blue Diamond Chocolate Almonds. Here's what we thought of these vegan chocolate covered almonds.
Blue Diamond Chocolate Almonds review
Blue Diamond Dark Chocolate Almonds are a little bit different from a conventional chocolate-covered almond. Instead of a creamy chocolate coating, these are dusted with sweet cocoa powder.
They're dry, but not in a bad way. They reminded Dave of Cocoa Krispies, and I wholeheartedly agree!
Since the chocolate coating isn't as heavy, the chocolate flavor hits a bit differently. It's lighter but still present, and it hits the spot when you're craving some chocolate!
These almonds are the latest addition to our late-night snacking game, and I can't recommend them enough.
They're sweet and crunchy with a nice, chocolatey flavor.
Are they healthy?
Blue Diamond Dark Chocolate Almonds don't contain a ton of sugar. Instead of sugar alone, they sweetened them with a mix of sugar and stevia, and they nailed the ratio.
You can't detect the stevia at all! That's big, because neither Dave nor I are fans of that taste.
A serving of these only contains five grams of sugar, which is not much at all for a sweet treat.
They are high in fat, because they're almonds, but the fat in almonds is good for you! You also get three grams of fiber in a serving.
The ingredients list on these is nice and short. Here's the list, according to Blue Diamond's website:
ALMONDS, SUGAR, COCOA POWDER (PROCESSED WITH ALKALI), CORN MALTODEXTRIN, NATURAL FLAVOR (DARK CHOCOLATE), SEA SALT, REBIANA (STEVIA EXTRACT).
