We’re already seeing a ton of excitement and can't wait for more people to try it.”

    Consumers can find the strawberry lemonade almonds in a 3.5-oz. pouch that retails for $4.99 at such locations as HelloFresh, Kroger, H-E-B and Hungryroot. The Beach Don’t Kill My Vibe bundle retails for $14.99 at Amazon.
