**Almondina Brand Cookies** Review and Giveaway

image descriptionimage description


This Delectable award-winning cookie recipe is prepared just the way Grandma Dina used to make in her kitchen.

                      I'm admittedly a cookie junky, there is just so much to enjoy about a nice crispy, crunchy, texture overload. The Almondina company has created the fine art of all those qualities rolled into one. Whether you are like me, a coffee dunker, or just enjoy one while reading that book, this has so much taste and texture in every bite. Award winning , loved and admired for generations and kept as a family secret
                          The original recipe, crispy almond cookie , has no added fat, salt, cholesterol and preservatives and even with all those missing you are not missing any flavor. The cookies are crunchy, yet slightly chewy because of the real fruit pieces. It is a perfect accompaniment to coffee, teas or even your favorite wine..could definitely be served as a dinner party treat.
                           Like mentioned earlier I love coffee and light cookies so my first flavor choice was the Original, not for any particular reason other than I closed my eyes and picked one. The flavor of original is more than an original flavor, the wafer was crispy, the flavor was lightly sweetened and was chocked full of raisins and almond pieces. Almondina has a list of ingredients on the back of their packages and the listing is very minimal with no weird additives, everything is easily said and understood. The cookie are light and a recommended amount of 4 per serving.
                      The next flavor i tried was the Chocolate Cherry and it was amazingly chocolate-y with a nice crunchy chewy cherry flavor. Every bite is full of all flavor, this is definitely a luxury treat perfectly paired with any warm drink, for me.
                                    Because I was chosen to review the products from the company I received a nice variety of flavors and I really can't choose one favorite I thought they were all super yummy and definitely a must try for anyone that likes a lower fat alternative to a cookie.
                               The Almondina variety pack gives you a nice array of flavors and has a special taste for any cookie lover..chocolate, coconut,cherry, cinnamon and all have the almonds and all natural flavors baked in. 
                       The choconut had a great flavor of chocolate  and almond with a perfect taste for a late night chocolate snack.
                       The Gingerspice was a very good flavorful cookie, as I am not a ginger kind of person, but I did find i enjoyed this crushed on a bowl of greek yogurt. I could not make myself dunk it coffee because I dont feel ginger is a coffee safe flavor.
                       The Sesame this one is very similar to the Original in the way its made with raisins and almonds but the added sesame gave it a little bit more flavor.

                      ** I have to say I am not being compensated any other way by the company than them providing me with the review product. This is definitely a "thumbs up" in my book as the crispy crunchy wafer really sealed the deal for me.All opinions are my own**
                       I love any cookie than offers more than flavor and this indeed does that. The next time you are looking for the lower in fat alternative make sure you give these a second look. If interested you can buy them o.nline..<HERE> or locate a store near you <HERE>.
