Almondina Feature and Giveaway

I was recently given the opportunity to try a cookie that is new to me, Almondina. These are a healthy cookie, with a crisp crunch. Honestly, at first, I was hesitant. I am used to the sinfully thick chewy cookies.  Well, Almondina has won my cookie loving heart!  These cookies come in so many flavors, there is one to fit any craving you have. I enjoyed many of these with a cup of coffee, and some I tried with a thin spread of marscapone cheese, and that folks.... was delicious! I wanted to try some crumbled on top of a bowl of ice cream, but .... it has just been to cold to have ice cream in my part of the world! But, trust me, I think it would be a great way to top your ice cream!

I can't remember the last time I made a New Years Resolution, but we have made them this year. More exercise, and healthier eating. Almondina is a perfect snack to help us along.  The cookies are:
  • Crunchy, addictive, healthful
  • Free of cholesterol, coloring and preservatives
  • Made with no added fat or salt
  • Low in calories – only 30 per slice
  • Proudly made in America
  • Kosher and Pareve (non dairy)

It is hard for me to pick a favorite flavor, but I am torn between the Chocolate Cherry, and the AlmonDuo which is loaded with pistachios! You need to try these!

(This picture is just a preview of the flavors offered!)
I received a free sample of the product for the purpose of this review and to facilitate a giveaway. The opinions expressed herein are my own and are not indicative of the opinions of Almondina.

Check out their Store Finder to see what stores in your area stock Almondina. You will also see that you can buy the cookies on line, if you live in the boondocks like I do, and don't have a lot of shopping options near by.
