Product Review: Blue Diamond Almond Nut-Thins

Is "hella-delicious" a word?

     Run, don't walk, to your nearest store that will carry "not your run of the mill crackers and cookies" and look for Blue Diamond brand Almond ( they also come in hazelnut and pecan ) Nut-Thins. These little thin crackers look a tad like a small Communion wafer that got mashed up with a Frito. Crunchy, a little nutty tasting - delicious. A serving is an impressive 16 crackers for 130 calories, 115 mg sodium. Ingredient list is short, too: rice flour, almonds, potato starch, salt, expeller pressed safflower oil, natural almond flavor, and natural butter flavor. ( They also seem to be available in a ranch flavor and cheddar cheese - but I can't imagine those flavorings help the CE profile.)
     These crackers are gluten and wheat free as well. Nice crunch, and would be terrific with salsa, guacamole, or  that raita recipe I published a few days ago.

And while I'm at it, here's a link to get a .50 / 1 coupon  for any Blue Diamond product!
