Almondina  Review and Giveaway

Hosted by:  Here We Go Again...Ready?

Sponsored by:  Almondina

I was given the opportunity to review Almondina Biscuits.  I have a sweet tooth so I was really looking forward to trying Almondina.  

I would like to share the story of Almondina:
Almondina® is the inspiring success story of a man whose great loves include both music and wonderful food. For generations his family loved his grandmother Dina’s most secret cookie, which she called Petit Gateau Sec. Yuval Zaliouk, an internationally known symphony conductor and gourmet chef, always had a special place in his heart (and stomach) for this exquisite, crispy wafer with the delicate flavor of roasted almonds and the natural sweetness of plump raisins.
“Generous as she was in giving away her recipes, Grandmother Dina kept the one for Petit Gateau Sec a total secret until the end of her life. Only then did she finally reveal the secret to her daughter, Ahuda, my mother.”
“It is with her blessing and with pride that the Zaliouk family shares these delicious, healthful wonders with your family.”
Long after his grandmother’s death, Zaliouk became aware that the remarkable characteristics of this addictively delicious but extremely nutritious cookie fell squarely in line with the growing demands of health-conscious buyers at the end of the century. Within seven years having started baking in his kitchen, the cookies, renamed Almondina® for his grandmother, were available in all fifty states, sought after in seven foreign countries, and had brought him recognition as Entrepreneur of the Year.
This all-natural, crispy almond cookie has no cholesterol and no added fat, salt, or preservatives. It is wonderfully crunchy and does not have to be dipped. It is a delightful accompaniment for coffee, tea, soft cheeses and fine light wines. The rush to eliminate fat from gourmet foods too often has also eliminated most of the flavor, a fact which is in sharp contrast to this enticingly delicious cookie.
Since the introduction of the classic Original flavor, eight more distinctive variations have been introduced, all of which continue to be packed with roasted almonds. A recent innovation, Chocolate Cherry, combines the almonds with dark chocolate and plump cherries.
The first cookie I tried was Almondina Chocolate Cherry.  I love it, I couldn't believe how good it tasted.  The cookies are so light and crispy and decadent.  It reminded me of a crispy brownie.
I also was able to try Original, Sesame, Gingerspice, Choconut, and Cinnaroma.  They are all very unique and delicious!  I have really thought about it and I can't decide which one is my favorite.  I really love them all!
One of the best things about Almondina biscuits is they aren't like cookies.  You feel like you are splurging but you aren't.  If you have a sweet tooth like I do you can have 4 of these and it's not going to ruin your diet.
You can tell with every bite that only the highest quality ingredients are used.  I normally don't eat crunchy cookies.  I tend to go for the chewy or soft type.  I will tell you I'm changing my mind after trying Almondina.
My daughters also love Almondina.  My oldest seemed to really like the Chocolate Cherry and Choconut.  This isn't a huge surprise to me, she is my chocolate girl.  One thing I found really funny is that she says she doesn't like raisins but even ate the flavors with raisins and didn't complain once.
My youngest really liked the Cinnaroma and the Original.  
I would highly recommend Almondina.  This is an excellent cookie. I love the fact that they have so many different flavors.  There is one for everyone!  I know you want to try them yourself, just click here and check out the store finder to locate a distributor near you.
