    Primal treats at WALGREEN'S

    OK so they may not be perfect, but it beats a snickers bar. I just got back from the corner Walgreen's and they had Planters brand "skinned almonds" in olive oil and sea salt and another was black pepper and garlic. 250 calories for 99 cents, oh and 200 of those calories from FAT.
    I did not grab any myself but I am going to steal the idea and make a few blends from the almonds I do have. I'm sure if I took the time to read the label from one end to the other we would find some less acceptable ingredients but I was not going to nit pick.

    I googled it: I am not sure how great these are, since they are roasted and have cottonseed oil in them? But you're right, definitely better than a Snickers! Here's the nutritional info for the chili-lime: http://www.planters.com/varieties/nu...uct=2900001428

    Very true- I have had marinated olives stuffed with almonds before, and they were delectable!

    Bostonbully, it's not a problem with the roasted almonds, just the oil that they were roasted in. If you're dying and have to eat they'll work, but like the OP mentioned, those little snacks are a great launching point for making your own "fancy" almond snacks! Plus it'll be cheaper, since you'll almost always get a better deal buying a bigger bag of almonds than you will buying those snack bags.
