“We know that consumers are eager to try new flavors of their favorite snacks, and in our research, we’ve identified a growing demand for global flavors tied with savory sweetness ranking as the fastest growing snack category over the past year,” said Maya Erwin, vice president of innovation and R&D at Blue Diamond. “Expanding our portfolio of international flavors and introducing these exciting flavor combinations are some of the key ways that we're bringing consumers flavors they’ll come to crave.”
The latest flavor additions from the brand include:
- Elote – Mexican Street Style Corn Almonds, made to deliver the taste of perfectly grilled sweet corn that is topped with chili pepper, cheese and lime;
- Korean BBQ Almonds, a blend of smoky, sweet and spicy flavors that include soy, garlic and gochujang;
- Mash Ups Cinnamon and Maple Almonds, a harmonious balance of sugar and space; and
- Mash Ups Dark Chocolate and Chili Pepper Almonds, a pairing of the sweetness found in dark chocolate with a subtle kick of pepper.
Currently, Blue Diamonds’ new Elote – Mexican Street Style Corn Almonds and Korean BBQ Almonds are available for purchase at select Walmart locations and will expand their distribution to grocery stores nationwide in the coming months, the company said.
The company’s other innovative flavors will be available beginning in June.
