Nuts for chocolate
In a first for national snack brands, Emerald Cocoa Roast Dark Chocolate Almonds pair special dry roasted almonds with a rich, dark chocolate flavoring. The shelf-stable product features the taste of chocolate without the added calories and fat found in chocolate-dipped nuts, notes Stockton, Calif.-based Diamond Foods, which has expanded the Emerald line from 14 to 23 items since its 2004 introduction. With just 150 calories per serving, the low-sodium snack provides a great source of vitamin E and protein. An 11-ounce convenient, ergonomically designed canister has a suggested retail price of $6.59 to $6.79. Call Diamond Foods v.p.-U.S. grocery sales Jim Barker at (630) 571-8262 for more information.
