Where’s the Lime?
Not what I hoped for, but probably should’ve expected
Taste great, price not so great!!
I Didn’t Know
I guess it’s my fault for not liking them, because I actually have never tried wasabi, but I like asian flavors in food and adore all of Blue Diamond’s bold flavors, so when I saw this in the store, I was like hey why not.
Now I know why not. These nuts were horrific…they had this…harsh acerbic taste to them that I just could not enjoy. I ended up wiping most of the flavoring off and chopping the nuts up to put in stuff like salads. The nuts themselves are high quality and always taste fresh, so at least I was able to get some use from them. However, I would never buy these again and if you are not experienced with wasabi, you may want to think twice before buying them lol.
Blue Diamond Wasabi Almonds
After a few cans, I’m hooked.
Not worth the money
Eh, they’re all right
A nice enough flavor, but I wouldn’t describe it as either “Blazin'” or “Buffalo Wing.”
And I’ve tried all their flavors, especially their “BOLD” line. Alas, their definition of “BOLD” is apparently “a little too spicy for kids.” This flavor is okay, as a change of pace, but doesn’t exactly set my taste buds a-“blazin’.” It doesn’t taste like Buffalo wings — it’s too sweet and not vinegary enough. And it’s definitely not spicy enough. I realize that real Buffalo wing spice can be brutal, and might not suit a mass-market snacking product. But really, they haven’t even tried here. There’s not even a hint of Tabasco, for example.
As I said, this is a pleasant enough flavor, especially if you need a little change from, say, my favorite, Jalapeno Smokehouse. But it doesn’t taste much like anything in particular. They could have called it “BOLD Generic Faux-Spicy Snack to be Eaten Brainlessly While Watching the Game” flavor and it would have been more accurate.
Not the best flavor
For spiciness they are better than the habanero but not as much as the wasabi can be (though in all fairness the wasabi is in a whole different taste spectrum anyway)
Flavorwise is where they lose out. They taste MUCH saltier and the flavor itself is overpowered by that until you get to the end zing where the spice kicks in.
In summary, they are edible and I will finish off the cans that I ordered but I will go back to purchasing my wasabi and habanero after that.
Not As Balanced As Other Bold Flavors, But Not Bad
Taste kind of strange….
When you first put an almond in your mouth you get the initial hint of buffalo wing flavor but it quickly goes away and then just tastes kind of strange.
They aren’t bad but they aren’t my favorite. Every bodies taste buds are different so you might like them but I don’t think I’ll buy this flavor again.
Blue Diamond Almonds Habanero BBQ
Not the best in the World
The 2nd Best Nut of Man
Like salt-and-vinegar potato chips, but more substantial and delicious. The almond gives a nice hint of sweetness under the assault of the vinegar. I’ve eaten 2/3rds a can at one sitting.
Milder than most of the bold flavors with a slight zing of lime citrus flavor!
One serving of these nuts is 170 Calories and it contains 6 grams of protein, 5 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber and only 1 gram of sugar and 1 gram of saturated fat. You also get calcium, vitamin E and magnesium from the almonds which are good for your body, heart and bones. I would rather eat 28 of these almonds for 170 calories than 11 potato chips for the same calories and none of the dietary benefits.
This flavor has only 5% of your daily intake of sodium. The only problem with these almonds is that they taste so good you have to be able to close the can and walk away. If you don’t like the super bold and spicy flavors then this flavor is ideal for you.
I like all of the Blue Diamond Almond products as I feel that they are healthier for you as long as you don’t overdo it in eating them. This is still a great flavor and I like them!
Can I offer you ladies a cool beverage or a tasty snack?
Most wasabi-flavored snacks really contain horseradish because it is a cheaper substitute. Wasabi is notoriously difficult to cultivate and the chemicals that give it its characteristic pungency are volatile.
I like these a whole lot and routinely buy several cans of them from my drugstore whenever they are on sale. My mom’s factory wo-workers like these too. However, I took this to a baseball game and it was almost universally hated. Go figure!
Bold BBQ taste that is not too spicy!
One serving of these nuts is 170 Calories and it contains 6 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber and only 1 gram of sugar and 1 gram of saturated fat. You also get calcium, vitamin E and magnesium from the almonds which are good for your body, heart and bones. I would rather eat 28 of these almonds for 170 calories than 11 potato chips for the same calories and none of the dietary benefits.
This flavor does have 7% of your daily intake of sodium and if you are on a salt restricted diet then make sure to watch your salt intake. The only problem with these almonds is that they taste so good you have to be able to close the can and walk away.
This is a very good product and I recommend it to you!
Crunchy almond treat with a sassy Jalapeno kick!
The nice thing about this treat is that they have only 1 gram of sugar while giving you 6 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber. They are a healthy snack and you get Vitamin E, magnesium and calcium in every serving. This particular flavor does have 180 mg of Sodium (7% of a daily 2000 calories diet) per serving but they really taste good! Just make sure that you only count our 28 almonds and eat one portion for 170 calories. It is really hard to do and they taste so darn good!
A hot, bold and tasty snack!
They do contain 15 grams of fat but only 1 gram of saturated fat and 0 grams of trans fat. (Mostly they are the good stuff) If you want a quick snack that is high in protein and low in sugar and sodium these are pretty good and spicy.
While there are other flavors that I like more this one is still very good. Just remember, they are addictive so you only get one serving!
I’m pleased to say that I wasn’t disappointed. This is right up there with my favorite flavors. It has just enough heat and jalapeno flavor with just a little bit of smoke. To me, these have almost as much heat as the Habanero flavor. Which isn’t a bad thing. I like spicy.
I would defiantly recommend these if you like the Bold line of Blue Diamond Almonds.
Not habanero-y at all, but still insanely addicting
Satisfyingly crunchy and tangy, it’s really hard to stop eating these. Even though the habanero kick isn’t there as promised on the label, it’s still really tasty. I highly recommend these. Sodium content is very low at 4% per serving. High in Vitamin E (35%) and magnesium (20%). This 1 pound bag (x3 bags) is a great deal compared to buying the 6 oz tins at the store, however, when my local Walgreens has buy 1 get 1, the price drops to about $0.35/oz.
Blue Diamond makes about 8 other flavors that I know of. My favorites are the Soy Wasabi, Honey Roasted, Smokehouse, Dijon Mustard.
The Lime n Chili flavor is my favorite with the Habanero BBQ being a close second.
I agree with another reviewer that says the tartness of the lime flavor is just enough to bring out the chili flavor. Its a nice balance.
I would say my only complaint is towards the end of the bag the flavor can get a little overwhelming because of all the extra spices that accumulate towards the bottom.
