Product Snapshot: Blue Diamond Growers is turning up the heat with its new line of Blue Diamond XTREMES almonds. Available in three super-hot flavors: Cayenne Pepper (Hot), Ghost Pepper (Hotter), and Carolina Reaper (Hottest), these new almonds are made with real peppers and have a spicy flavor rush that takes snacking to the next level. 

Blue Diamond XTREMES has 6g of plant protein, and are an excellent source of antioxidant Vitamin E and a good source of magnesium. 

“Spicy snacks are continuing to rise in popularity, and through our research, we uncovered that there is a growing demand to really bring the heat to the category,” said Maya Erwin, who recently took on a new role at Blue Diamond as the vice president of innovation and R&D. “We couldn’t resist combining our highest-quality almonds with extremely hot flavor to give consumers a flavor rush they’ll keep wanting to come back for.”   

Blue Diamond XTREMES are currently available at select retailers and will be available online and in major retailers beginning June 2021.
