You may be familiar with our Perfect Portion tins; we debut the new design every year at our FNCE booth. But they’re not just cute. They have nutrition relevance too. We’re all aware that almonds make a great snack—but do you know how many almonds are in a serving? The answer is as easy as 1-2-3: one ounce of almonds is 23 almonds. It’s what we call the perfect portion, which fits exactly into our ever-popular Perfect Portion Tin. Check out this year’s new design!
