Blue Diamond XTREMES™ truly is the Super Spicy Superfood as each serving 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.
