I love cookies…cookies of all kinds! Soft cookies, chewy cookies, even crunchy cookies. I recently was sent a big sample pack of Almondina. I had never heard of them before but who am I to deny cookies, right?! The box arrived and I opened up the package to see several varieties. First – I have to say that these little almond biscuits/cookies are sooooo good! They’re super crunchy with nice chunks of almonds in every bite. Love the taste and the texture!
Here’s a little backstory about the company:
After reading more about the company, I found out that Almondina which is based in Ohio, is an inspiring success story about a man named Yuval Zaliouk, whose passions included music and wonderful food. For generations, his family enjoyed his grandmother Dina’s most secret cookie, which she called Petit Gateau Sec. Long after his grandmother’s death, he started making and selling this delicious cookie and renamed it Almondina, after his grandmother.
These yummy cookies are now available in all 50 states. Almondina is all natural and the best part (besides the crunch and flavor) is that they do not contain cholesterol, added fat, trans-fats, salt, or preservatives. Love!! We’ve tried all the flavors that they sent us. I have to say that my 2 favorites were the Choconut and the Cinnaroma. Both of those, I could have ate my weight in, especially with a nice hot cup of coffee. I was even shocked that my SUPER picky 7 year old enjoyed all of them and that’s saying a lot!
You can find Almondina is these stores: Fairway, Publix, Hy Vee, Giant Eagle, Brookshire, Mollie Stone’s, Hannaford, Jewel, Whole Foods, The Fresh Market, Walmart, Trader Joe’s, Cost Plus World Market, TJ Maxx, Marshalls and many others.
