Blue Diamond Jalapeño Smokehouse Almonds

I was surprised to learn, even after all these years, that I was a relatively naive flavored-almond lover. Sure, I'd sampled standard Smokehouse® almonds. You know the ones, coated with smoke-flavored powder, whose addictive properties are legendary.

So I was wholly unprepared for the extra taste sensation of Blue Diamond Jalapeño Smokehouse Almonds. OK, so they won't burn your tongue off. But they do have an extra kick that says, "Hey there, ready to have some fun in your mouth?" I exercised every bit of warranted restraint... I bought an entire case.

A "serving size" is apparently only an ounce -- the label says "about 28 nuts". Right. My grandmother can pound 28 nuts before she's done dealing her first hand of pinochle. Plan to eat the whole freaking 6-ounce can. Heed the warning on the label though: "Peanut free. May contain other tree nuts." Like, say, almonds?

Yeah....these are great...but here's another bit of crack for ya...

Just found your blog; cool idea.
Here’s one that’s made with crack….

Trader Joe’s brand “mini mild chocolate peanut butter cups”….these are teeny tiny and they lure you in by their small size. The ratio of peanut to chocolate is perfection (better in my opinion than the Hershey’s brand peanut butter cups which have two much PB for the chocolate (but are still good, mind you).

Anyway, these little devils are so good I regularly eat way too many (they are so small after all) and find that the entire 12 ounce container is gone in 2 days. Ouch.

Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having trouble finding one? Thanks a lot! capital one credit card login
