SACRAMENTO, CALIF. — Blue Diamond Growers has launched Thin Dipped Almonds, a line of better-for-you snack nuts.

The chocolate-dipped almonds contain no cholesterol, artificial flavors or colors and 50% less sugar than the average chocolate-covered almond. Available in double dark chocolate and dark chocolate sea salt caramel varieties, each serving of the dipped almonds also contains 170 calories and 5 grams of protein.

“We are so excited to present our customers with yet another incredible innovation within Blue Diamond's iconic snack almond portfolio,” said Raj Joshi, senior vice president of the Global Consumer Division at Blue Diamond. "Whether you're a health nut or not, Thin Dipped Almonds offer a smart choice when it comes to sweet snacking.”

Blue Diamond’s latest offering is now available in Walmart stores nationwide in resealable 4-oz packages.
