Almondina, the Delicious Cookie Without The Guilt (Review/Giveaway)

My husband loves tea.

I think I may have mentioned his affection for tea once or twice on this blog already.

Well, now my hubby has a favorite new snack to go with his tea - thanks to the company that sent us a few samples to try:

Almondina®, the Delicious Cookie Without The Guilt™

It was the first time we've tried Almondina®, as a family. I'm not sure why, since I've seen it in stores multiple times. All I can say, is the next time I pass the Almondina display at the store, I'm putting on the brakes and loading up my cart.

I wish I could say I have a few samples left to enjoy as I'm writing this post - but I don't. They're gone. Long gone.

My husband, toddler and myself all enjoyed the delicious almond cookie (baked using grandmother Dina's secret recipe) within a week. Did I mention that was 6-7 packages?

It's fitting that I'm going to stock my my "Fuel Up Father" Father's Day Gift Basket with Almondina® this weekend, as the owner, Yuval Zaliouk, internationally known symphony conductor (What???) and gourmet chef, is a father himself.

Introducing his grandmother's secret recipe in 1989, this cookie is baked with all-natural ingredients, no cholesterol, added fat, trans-fats, salt or preservatives.

Simply all-natural, homemade goodness, just the way I like it.

This precious, delicate cookie doesn't have to be dipped to enjoy.  I found myself in the afternoons, reaching for an Almondina® to munch on for a little pick-me-up.  I'm not a sugary sweets fan in general, so these cookies were the perfect balance of sweet and savory for my taste.

However, if you're a "dipper" they are perfectly paired with coffee, tea or even wine in the evening as well. 

Almondina is available in the following flavors:
  • The Original - Almond
  • Choconut
  • Cinnaroma®
  • Gingerspice
  • AlmondDuo® (almond & pistachios)
  • Anniversary (touch of Anise)
  • BranTreats® (with 30% oatbran)
  • Sesame
  • Pumpkin Spice
  • Chocolate Cherry

Honestly, all the varieties we tried were delicious. I think if I were to choose, the good old Original flavor was probably our all-around favorite. A close second would be the Gingerspice.

It's amazing how much flavor they pack into the Original Almondina almond cookie, with only 6 simple ingredients!

I'm finding myself craving more of these Almondina® cookies right now!  Good thing they've expanded their distribution and can be found at Whole Foods, Cost Plus World Market, Walmart and more.
