Almondina Cookies Review and Giveaway


Looking for a snack without guilt? Look no further then Almondina, These savory biscuits are incredible!! They are the perfect accompaniment to coffee, tea, cheese and wines. Or they are just as great eating them solo.

I was delighted Almondina gave me the opportunity to sample and review their products. With no cholesterol, no added fat or salt, these are a healthy alternative to the overly sugared cookies you find at the grocery store. I don't have a huge sweet tooth, hubby has a big enough one for both of us. I don't eat a lot of cookies, candy, cake etc because they are too sweet. Almondina's cookies are not overly sweet. They are full of natural flavor and have enough sweetness that works for me.

Almondina comes in the following varieties:

  • Original
  • Chocolate Cherry
  • Choconut
  • Cinnaroma
  • Gingerspice
  • AlmonDuo
  • Anniversary
  • Brantreats
  • Sesame
  • Seasonal Pumpkin Spice
  • Chocolate Dipped
  • Yogurt Dipped Brantreats
  • Milk Chocolate Almondina Delights

  • I received seven varieties of Almondina to try: 2 of the Original Almondinas and one each of the Sesame, Cinnaroma, Chocolate Cherry, Choconut and Gingerspice. I thought "Where do I start?"
      
    Of these three pictured below, the Chocolate Cherry is my favorite. It has a rich decadent flavor to it. Almost like a dark chocolate cookie with the chewy cherries and almonds. It's a thin piece with a nice crunch to it. I found it was the perfect little pick-me-up when I had the mid-workday slump and needed something to get me going. Hubby loved the Sesame a lot. I'm not a huge sesame fan, but they were good. Not too much sesame flavor at all. I love Almonds so anything with an almond it it works for me.
    My favorite with coffee is the Cinnaroma. With just a hint of cinnamon and loaded with almonds and raisins, this one was perfect to dipping in my coffee. I ate this one with some yogurt for breakfast and it was just the right amount of food for me.
