I wasn't exactly sure what to expect when I received my sampler package from Almondina for review. I'd never tried their cookies, but when asked to do a review of almond cookies.
How could I say no?
These are thin, and very crunchy variety of cookie, which made me slightly reluctant to take my first bite, but the smell of that delicious original almond cookie made me sink my teeth in.
True, C is for Cookie, but A is for Almondina, because they know what a cookie is all About! My husband doesn't always get into all the products I'm reviewing, but he was anxious to help on this one. We received a sampler box with 7 packages of these delicious cookies.
The first we tried was The Original, we were given two packages of this flavor. If there were no other flavors to choose, this one would be enough. We loved this flavor, they don't skimp on the Almonds! The simple goodness to this treat makes it hard to only eat one, or two. With the Nutrition facts like the ones these cookies have, it's alright to indulge and go ahead and have a third cookie!
|Nutrition Facts From Almondina~ The Original|
One of my favorites has to be the Gingerspice with chunks of real Ginger, these were so tasty. I sort of hoarded these for myself. I was thinking the Choconut would be my favorite, but to my surprise it came in behind the Gingerspice. Since I brought it up, the Choconut, was also very good, and rich with flavor. My husband seemed to love this flavor.
We were having salad for supper one night, and I just happened to think I have a package of Sesame Almondina Cookies, I wonder how that would go with this salad. I got them out, and opened the pack and took a bite with my salad. My question to you, "have you every tried a cookie with your salad?" The flavor of the exotic roasted sesame, raisins, and almonds complimented my salad to perfection. These were an amazing combination, cookies with my meal. Works for me!
We also tried the Chocolate Cherry, and the Cinnaroma. Our family loved all the flavors, but for me the Sesame and the Gingerspice were my favorites. For all the true Chocoholics out there, they offer chocolate dipped cookies, and yogurt dipped.
Almondina's catch line is "Indulge without the Guilt", and I find that to be a truthful statement. Eating these light, crunchy cookies, I felt like I was cheating, but the calories said otherwise.
