From time to time, I get invitations to try different things as a part of this humble food blog TastyChomps.com . This is a hobby of mine and not a career so I always welcome feedback and cool new things to try. Lo and behold, we have Almondina cookies who would like to be reviewed:
Almondina cookies are all-natural, crispy almond cookie has no cholesterol and no added fat, salt, or preservatives and has only 30 calories. They are kind of like biscottis with almonds in them.
These extraordinary gourmet treats are created from musical conductor Yuval Zaliouk’s secret family recipe which has been passed down from generation to generation and was introduced to the market in 1989. 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.
Almondina® biscuits in the following flavors:
Original – America’s all natural favorite with almonds and raisins
Chocolate Cherry – We combined the world’s finest dark chocolate with plump cherries to produce an irresistible, decadent treat without guilt.
Choconut – Rich tasting crunchy chocolate, but low in calories
Cinnaroma® – The original biscuit for cinnamon lovers
Gingerspice – Trend setting, with chunks of Australian ginger
AlmonDuo® – Double-nut wonder with almonds and pistachios
Anniversary – Award winning delight with a touch of anise
BranTreats® – Made with oat bran and the finest cinnamon “Cookies For Breakfast”
Sesame – Irresistible, exotic, flavorful
Pumpkin Spice – A seasonal attraction with a delightful touch of fall spices combined with the highest quality almonds and pepitas(pumpkin seeds)
My favorite flavors were the Cinnaroma and the Chocolate Cherry. The pumpkin spice were also a hit and if you are a ginger lover the Gingerspice had a noticeable kick of ginger !
