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 are complemented by the WOW of wasabi from the Blue Diamond almonds.

Did you know that almond 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.2
