We Dig It: Planters Pumpkin Spice Almonds Taste Like Cupcakes

pumpkin-almonds

We got a chance to test out the new seasonal Planters line and were pleasantly surprised by the palatable taste. With everything from vile Pumpkin Pie Vodka and questionable Pumpkin Pie Spice Pringles (among other things), we were wary to say the least.

However, lo and behold, the Planters Pumpkin Spice Almonds are a seasonal Pumpkin-flavored treat that doesn’t make you want to gag. In fact, we wanted more. While the general response for the Winter Spiced Mix was, “I’m not mad at it,” the Pumpkin Spice Almonds were absolutely exquisite. They were like munching on crunchy pumpkin pie cupcakes, while still retaining the nutty flavor. Think a nutmeg, cinnamon cupcake minus the mounds of icing.

Hmm…possible clutch ingredient for a holiday recipe? Stay tuned.
