As I was strolling through the grocery store today (HEB in Houston), I ran into a couple of nuts! Oven-roasted ones, in fact. They waved to me from the shelf and begged me to take them home. So, here they are… my new best friends! First, I sampled the dark chocolate ones. Mmmmm. Kind of like eating a Hershey’s with almonds bar (without the bar!).
Then I cracked open the mint dark chocolate almonds. Wow! They taste like those yummy Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies. They were a burst of flavor, and healthy, too! Just to be sure this was a good idea to become acquainted with these new friends, I checked out their references online. Yep, it’s true. Eating almonds in moderation promotes lower cholesterol levels, prevents heart disease and can help with weight loss. Yahoo!
One last bonus. They even have portion control built in. Along the side is a measuring tape that lets you know you’ve eaten one serving. Too bad they don’t have a built-in whistle as well. You many never want to stop eating them once you start.
