MICRO-REVIEW: Blue Diamond BOLD Sriracha Almonds
Today’s junk food: Blue Diamond BOLD Sriracha Almonds!!
When I opened this can of Blue Diamond BOLD Sriracha Almonds and smelled, I definitely got the aroma of sriracha – good garlicky notes and some vinegar tang. Each almond was splashed with a heavy dose of visible orange-y powder. Popping a few into my mouth, I chewed – like other Blue Diamond Almond products, the almonds were fresh and popped easily under my teeth. Each almond had GREAT flavor – the sriracha garlicky note was nice and strong, and the base flavor had the sweetness, the saltiness, the sour vinegar and chili pepper flavor that we all associate with sriracha. These nuts, however, were NOT spicy – at all. At least, not to me. After eating several, I did get a TINY bit of tingle, but otherwise, nope. In essence, these almonds captured a really good sriracha flavor – with absolutely no burn. Super flavorful without any real spice. I’d eat these again, only because they WERE tasty, but if you’re looking for SPICE, pass on these.
