Almondina "Gourmet Cookies" Review/Giveaway (Closed)

Last month my mother reviewed a Gourmet Gift basket which included Almonduo Pistachio Biscuits by Almondina. She loved the Almondina cookies because not only were they yummy but they are also made with no added fat, salt, or cholesterol. Well I was very lucky to be contacted by Almondina to review a variety of their gourmet cookies. I was sent a box containing the following flavors: Original, Gingerspice, Cinnaroma, Choconut, Sesame, & Chocolate Cherry.

Are you wondering 'what is Almondina'?
Almondina Brand Biscuits are unique - a gourmet cookie, health food and snack, all in one. These extraordinary gourmet treats are created from a secret family recipe which has been passed down from generation to generation. Now you can enjoy Almondina just as Grandma Dina made in her own kitchen.

Almondina® Biscuits are:

  • Crunchy, addictive, healthful
  • Unique in the marketplace
  • Free of cholesterol, coloring and preservatives
  • Made with no added fat or salt
  • Low in calories - only 30 per slice
  • Enjoyed by people of all ages
  • Proudly made in America
  • Kosher and Pareve (non dairy)

  • The day my sample box arrived, I was like a kid in a candy store! I opened each flavor & began to eat one of each as my husband watched me with a grin on his face. I responded, "I have to taste them in order to write a review." He simply gave me a "Mmm hmmm!"
    I think I ended up eating roughly two from each package....just to be thorough with my review process. :) From my extensive taste testing I decided that my favorite flavors are Chocolate Cherry & Gingerspice. By far the unusual flavor was Sesame because it just doesn't sound like a typical cookie flavor. The taste of it is interesting too because the sesame seeds add a little twist to the flavor. Overall, all taste great & go perfect with my morning coffee! The fact that the cookies are a healthier choice & low in calories makes them the perfect guilt free snack (in moderation).

    WIN!!

    I'd like to try the sesame --it sounds so unusual for a cookie, and I usually like unusual things! This would work with my diet, too.

    I think the ginger spice would go great with some chai latte.
