That’s what I am.
It’s because I can’t stop eating these new Emerald Cocoa Almonds that landed in my mailbox recently as a sample. You know it’s a good day when the mailman brings you goodies like this.
The cocoa is baked into the almonds so there’s no messing up your fingers. That’s a good thing since I’ve been eating them by the handful. The wonderful roasty flavor of the nuts is married with a whisper of chocolate. It’s not so much chocolate that it tastes like candy, but just enough to give it a haunting je ne sais quoi.
I’m already wondering what these might be like baked in chocolate cookies.
One and a half ounces of the cocoa almonds is 150 calories. Almonds also are loaded with fiber, magnesium, protein, and Vitamin E.
So do indulge. An 11-ounce canister is about $6.99 at supermarkets nationwide.
