Bobalu Almonds Review and Giveaway!

Bobalu Almonds sent us some of their shelled almonds to review AND host a giveaway!! 
We were not compensated for this post, just sent product. All opinions are our own. 
Here's some FAQ from their website:
Where do your almonds come from?
All Bobalu almonds come from California, anywhere from Bakersfield to Chico.  Nearly 80% of the world’s production of almonds come from this region.  More info can be found here.
What makes your almonds so delicious?
Most importantly, we take great pride in our selection of almonds and use the Nonpareil variety.  Second, we roast our almonds IN THE SHELL which produces their crisp texture and buttery taste.
What’s up with the shell?
An almond actually has multiple layers: a fruit like exterior while it hangs on the tree, a much harder and larger outer shell, a thin shell, and a kernel.  You may be familiar with almonds that require a nutcracker and are a pain to crack!, but we remove that for you, leaving only the thin shell and almond.
Where can I buy?
Currently, Bobalu almonds can be purchased directly via our on-line store. We are a food service company providing in-shell almonds across the country. If you are interested in having Bobalu almonds at your bar, lounge, club or sporting venue, contact us here.
What is the shelf life for your almonds?
Unopened, Bobalu almonds can be kept for nearly a year.  Once opened, our resealable bags will keep the almonds fresh for 3-6 months.

Our Review:
WE LOVE ALMONDS. These almonds were no exception. We enjoyed them for a snack at home. It was fun to crack open the shells! When we took them to a golf tournament, we obviously took the time to take them out of the shells before we got to the course due to the fact that you have to eat on the go during a round and it's not exactly easy to crack open shells. haha. They were a wonderful healthy snack to keep us fueled for the rounds!
