Almonds are exactly the kind of snack food you can eat by the handful without ever realizing you've gone overboard. Just imagine yourself at a party or a picnic, almonds within reach… before you know what's happened, the bowl is empty and you're left holding the bag. Whether directly out of the bag or from a bowl, these nuts have that great nutty flavor that just keeps you coming back for more. Believe us, we understand your pain. And really, since nuts contain the best fats and are great sources of protein, the biggest potential downside to eating all these almonds is the salt.
Enter Trader Joe's 50% Less Salt Almonds. As their name clearly states, Trader Joe’s 50% Less Salt Almonds have 50% less salt than our regular version of the same nuts. Plus, they're oven roasted with no additional oils, making them naturally free of cholesterol and trans fats, and a good source of fiber. So, if you're like us and have a bit of difficulty controlling your "reach-grab-eat" impulse when confronted with almonds, these California-grown Nonpareil 50% Less Salt Almonds are really worth their salt, so to speak. They come in a 16 ounce bag for $4.99, every day.
