National Almond Day is February 16, and Blue Diamond Growers is paying tribute to the tasty, delicious, and healthful nut that is grown with care in the heart of California.
To celebrate, there will be a state proclamation declaring February 16 as California Almond Day. Blue Diamond Growers is also offering a one-day-only special of 20% off all products at the Blue Diamond Nut & Gift Shops in Sacramento, Modesto, and Chico, as well as through its online gift store at www.bluediamondstore.com.
