Just Almonds sent me a bag of almond flour and a bag of nonpariel almonds. I've had the products for awhile, but waited until this week to try the almond flour. My nephew Braden has enjoyed eating the almonds every time he is over and eats them by the handfuls. My husband, daughter and I have also enjoyed the almonds.
The almonds are Just Almonds, just like the name refers to, there is no added preservatives, colors. When we opened the package we used our senses to decide what we were getting. To look at them they were all very big, nice and plump and smelled very fresh. The highlight for me was the sticker on the package that said what month they were actually packaged in. I have never before seen this on any nut package, so you know what you are getting is top quality and freshness!!

The almond flour we used to make homemade shortcake for the fresh strawberries we recently purchased. Since we are watching our calories and carbohydrates I was pleasantly surprised that Just Almonds almond flour only had 177 calories and only 6 grams of carbohydrates!! So not only is it fresher than what you would buy a tth store it tastes a little better for baking!! The almond taste was fantastic with the fresh strawberries and was made with Zero calorie Wholesome Sweeteners. Almond flour is also high in protein and low in sugars.
I would have to say that the almond flour was very surprising! It tasted great, but the chewiness would take some getting used too. All in all I was pretty impressed with almond flour and it will be a staple in my kitchen for years to come.
Another one of my favorite parts of the Just Almonds is that they are products of the United States. Its not very often anymore you find products that are from the United States. Check out Just Almonds website today by clicking here. Visit them on Facebook and Twitter.
