Blue Diamond Almonds & Fruit Perfect Appetizer for Dinner Parties

This post was sponsored by Blue Diamond® as part of an Influencer Activation and all opinion expressed in my post are my own. 

My friends and I have a weekly dinner on Monday nights to which we got really creative and call it, “Monday Night Dinner”. It gives us a chance to catch up, and for us to have great food. What’s not to love about that? This week our appetizer was taken care of thanks to Blue Diamond Almonds & Fruit.


 So, to prepare for our dinner party, I downloaded the Ibotta coupon and saved $1 on any variety of Blue Diamond Almonds & Fruit. Once I had that I was able to head over to Walmart and use the coupon.




Personally, I recommend the Almonds & Fruit Sea Salt & Whole Blueberry along with Almonds & Fruit Fiery Ghost Pepper & Tart Cherry. We have often had Almonds out as a snack or an appetizer but never thought of pairing it with dried fruit like this. I have to say it’s quite brilliant. Out of the two above my favorite is the Almonds & Fruit Sea Salt & Whole Blueberry. 



Since we did have little kids at the table, we made sure to let them know that the Almonds & Fruit Fiery Ghost Pepper & Tart Cherry would be spicy, and they may not like it but could try if they want. I also cut up some Gouda to go along with, we all love it, so it seemed like a great pairing.


We had kids at our dinner party this time, but I know that the next dinner party we have will be with adults only and will be a little more sophisticated. The brilliant thing about Blue Diamonds Almonds & Fruit is that it can be elegant and fun. I love that about it. Elegance meets practicality. In my world, that’s a perfect match. My kids love Gouda as do some of their friends, so I know we will still include that, but I’ll expand with some brie, baby swiss, of course since we are in Wisconsin, I can’t miss out on some good Wisconsin cheese. Then we need a good Riesling as that pairs the best with Almonds.



For the Almonds & Fruit Sea Salt & Whole Blueberry a serving is only 160 calories, yes you read that right. So, when your dinner guests, or just yourself is snacking on those delicious blueberries and almonds you don’t have to worry.

As you can see the rest of our meal was grilling out with steak and chicken kabobs, hobo potato packs, zucchini pizza bites, along with some fresh fruit and of course some delicious chocolate covered cheesecake bites.



I know I mentioned two flavors of the Almonds & Fruit, but Blue Diamond has more options than that. When I was at Walmart, I also picked up a bag of the Almonds & Fruit Sweet Cardamom Almonds & Honey Crisp Apple. The only one I didn’t get, but wish I did (I’ll grab next time) is the Almonds & Fruit (Dark Chocolate Flavored Almonds & Tasted Coconut). So, you really do have a bunch of option to choose from and with the Ibotta coupon you really can’t go wrong.

As always tell me what you think if you have tried these. We all love them here and will be our go to party appetizer in the future.
