It’s getting hot at Blue Diamond! The specialized almond company is launching its first-ever  dedicated line of spicy almonds, XTREMES almonds.

Turning Up the Heat with XTREMES Almonds

The new fiery flavors range from hot to hottest, starting with Cayenne Pepper (HOT), Ghost Pepper (HOTTER), and Carolina Reaper (HOTTEST).

Do you think you can handle the heat? I know I already can’t because I get the hiccups with any pepper flavor. Probably not something I should be proud of…

This line is so hot that only the fearless can take the heat, so where are all the spicy craving snackers? You might need your gallon jug of water next to you for this one.

Each flavor is actually made with real peppers to deliver both a mouth-blazing heat and fiery flavor rush all at the same time.

Not only is XTREMES almonds spicy, but it’s also has positive benefits in each serving including 6g of plant protein that 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.

Right now, XTREMES almonds are only available at select grocery stores, but will rollout nationwide starting this June.
