This Wasabi Snack Mix recipe is a twist on the classic popcorn and cereal snack mix. Thanks to the wasabi almonds, it has just the right kick to it.
Much to the dismay of loyal fans everywhere, football season will soon draw to a conclusion. However, there is still time for at least one more tailgating party. For a game-changing flavor, how about making something different?
If you are up for the challenge, try my Wasabi Snack Mix, made with snacking favorites like pretzels, popcorn, and rice cereal. The twist? Blue Diamond BOLD Wasabi & Soy Sauce Almonds.
Making it is a cinch. You start making the base of popcorn, pretzels, and rice cereal.
Then you put a small pot on low heat and melt some butter, add soy sauce, honey, and curry powder.
Then you toss the seasoning with the base and bake low and slow – 200 degrees for about 45 minutes.
Once it has cooled completely, you toss in a can of Blue Diamond BOLD Wasabi & Soy Sauce Almonds. The hint of sweetness and soy in the base mix is complemented by the WOW of wasabi from the Blue Diamond almonds.

Did you know that almonds are among the lowest-calorie nuts? They are also the highest tree nut in six essential nutrients: protein, fiber, calcium, vitamin E, riboflavin, and niacin. Almonds are high in monounsaturated fat. (Monounsaturated fats can help reduce bad cholesterol levels in your blood which can lower your risk of heart disease and stroke.) These are some good reasons for eating almonds.
