The "tour" consists of a detailed film describing how almonds are grown, processed, and packaged. Fans of the TV show "How It's Made" will be delighted by how almonds are harvested, sorted, cleaned, roasted, seasoned, and packaged. The film is slanted towards emphasizing the safety, cleanliness, and palatibility of almonds, but is acceptable. The Outlet Store has a bewildering assortment... More

no tour for the last decade, (was great a couple decades ago) no damaged packaging almonds which is a primary reason to go to such a store. No big discounts. There is a video about the industry and company which was good. So, really what is the reason to go out of your way to go here? A video? Sure... More

We visited the Blue Diamond store while staying in Roseville, CA. We asked the clerk to play the 20 minute video which we found informative. Once done with that, we went into the retail store and sampled a lot of almonds. They had sample containers of all their different flavors. After selecting our top four, we browsed some of the...

I love smokehouse almonds. I have been ordering them for Christmas gifts the last 3 years. Almonds are great and the gifts show up on time.

There are so many samples of most of their almonds, many different package sizes for gifts or just to take home and snack. I come here every visit to Sacramento (usually once or twice a year).

The blue diamond almond store is always a highlight when we visit my grandma. We are a almond loving family. What could be better than sampling almonds? The flavors are amazing and the staff is always friendly. It's a great place to grab a snack for yourself and purchase gifts to take home.

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.
