I wrote to Diamond foods to inquire about the cocoa roasted almonds -- a friend gave me a baggie of them, but I couldn't find the nutritional info and ingredients online. Here is their well-written response:

Thank you for your recent e-mail concerning gluten in Diamond Foods
products.

The Emerald of California product line is produced and packaged at the
Diamond Foods processing facilities. Some of the Emerald snack nut
products contain gluten. They are as follows.

Emerald Honey Dijon Glazed Walnuts 'n Cashews
Emerald Backyard Grill Glazed Walnuts 'n Almonds
Emerald Honey Roasted Peanuts
Emerald Chocolate Brownie Walnuts
Emerald Dry Roasted Walnuts
Emerald Wasabi Dry Roasted Peanuts
Emerald BBQ Dry Roasted Peanuts
Emerald Chipotle Dry Roasted Peanuts
Emerald Berry Blend Trail Mix
Emerald Breakfast Blend Trail Mix
Emerald Tropical Blend Trail Mix

Diamond adheres to superior Good Food Manufacturing Practices, and all
processing lines are thoroughly cleaned between
packaging runs of the different Emerald products. However, there is no
way to be absolutely certain that our Emerald products
have not come in contact with gluten. Because of Diamond Food's concern
for those who have severe allergies, we want our
consumers to be fully informed so that they can make the appropriate
choices regarding using our products.

We appreciate your interest in our products.

Sincerely,



Marilyn Lindberg
Customer Service

You know, I read lists like that and I just can't help but thinking why in the world are they putting gluten ingredients in something like (non-flavored) dry roasted walnuts? That is insane. Thanks for posting that!

I crack my own nuts. It is tedious, but that way I can be sure that they are gluten free.

I became addicted to those chocolate almonds not long before I went gluten-free. I have a box of the snack pouches at the back of my cabinet waiting for me to become daring. I think I'll wait a while; I'm sure my mom won't argue with having a few extras added to her snack drawer.
