Taste Test: Emerald Cocoa Roast Almonds
Sometimes we get free food in the mail here at the Weekly's World Headquarters. This is one of those times. (Thank you, food people for keeping the starving writer in mind.) Anyway, the guys at Bay Area-based Diamond Foods sent along a plastic cannister filled to the brim with Emerald Cocoa Roast Almonds (a relatively new item that hit stores just this month) and wanted to know what we thought.
Well, we know that the whole point of the product was to bake the almonds in dark chocolate flavoring to reduce the calorie count, but there's nothing like a nut dipped in some quality chocolate. These things are terribly addicting though they're not the most natural combination - think almonds dunked in grainy Swiss Miss hot chocolate powder. So thanks guys, but next time send us something interesting...like your Wasabi peanuts. --Janine Kahn
