Emerald Cocoa Roast Almonds

Emerald Cocoa Roast Almonds

Crunchy? Check. Chocolaty? Check. Healthy? Check! We went nuts for these roasted almonds. They're dusted with a cocoa coating that imparts a deep, dark chocolate flavor, without adding all the fat that a dip in real chocolate would. One serving has just 150 calories and 13 grams of fat -- more than half of them the monounsaturated kind, which helps with the battle of the bulge. Factor in 3 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein (meaning they'll fill you up), and 35 percent of the RDA for vitamin E, and you've got a snack that's just about near perfect. Plus, the lid of the clever container they come in holds exactly one (1.5-ounce) serving. No danger of overdoing it!

Price: $6 for an 11-ounce canister
Manufacturer: Diamond Foods
Available at: Sam's Club and Safeway supermarkets nationwide
