As far as flavored almonds go, if health is your paramount concern, these are virtually the only nuts on the market I bother with. I'm a purist and generally prefer unadulterated almonds, but when I need to trick my brain into thinking I'm eating candy, these are fine. They taste fine. There is no more apt way to describe these nuts. You know you're not eating chocolate, you may as well just be eating raw almonds, but this is a go- to for those who are feeling lost and desperate in their recent realization of the value of protein and the brutality of sugar.
