It is very hard to navigate this site in order to place orders. If you don't know what you are looking for, you might decide to leave. Know what you are looking for when you go to this site.

We usually stop here around holiday time to get some very good almonds (lots of varieties) as well as to get some holiday presents for others. Almonds are very fresh - its a store by their factory. Nicely laid out store; there is a small table where they have sample almonds of their different flavors they offer. Service is friendly;... More

We did not do the tour, but visited the store. They have a wonderful selection of different things made with almonds. I got the coconut almonds, delicious. They offer samples of different flavors that you can try before you buy. I've been coming to Blue Diamond for years and it is a must stop whenever I'm in Sacramento.

There is no tour of the factory but ask to watch the 20 minute movie. It is old but you learn something about the almond. Ask for a sample if you don't see the one you want to try. A nice variety of types of almonds to choose from.

The retail store at Blue Diamond almonds is a fantastic place to go pick up the best, highest quality almonds in the world, but the store has a lot more than just almonds. Very friendly staff and you will be much more informed on the entire process of the almonds processing.

We arrived promptly at opening on a saturday and were greeted by a most friendly gentleman. We sampled many different flavors of almonds and left with plenty of almonds to share with our family and friends. Highly recommend!

Blue Diamond Growers shows an informative video about the almond growing, collecting, sorting and processing business. There large gift shop sells every kind of almond product and the sampling table lets you decide which ones to buy. Very friendly staff.

A must-visit whenever we're in Sacramento. You can sample everything and buy at prices better than back home. Plus they have new varieties and quantities you can't get elsewhere. Give packages and specials are available, too, along with logo merchandize. Informative displays and video tell you about the products.

They stopped giving tours over 10 years ago but every day people still ask. Thanks AAA for keeping your guide books updated. However, the store was a major treat. Lots of great bargains on fresh almonds and many different flavored coatings. Not worth a special trip but we were going to Old Sacramento anyway. Enjoyed the shopping at the Blue... More

I went to the store the first time to for the sole purpose of buying almond baking paste for a Dutch pastry that I make each Christmas. It is the only place in California I've ever found it and it is reasonably priced. I found so much more at the store including gift sets, school snacks and some dark chocolate... More
