Almondina: Delicious, Healthy Gourmet Cookies (Review & Giveaway)

Are you looking for a delicious treat or dessert without any of the guilt?  Dessert has always been weakness, so with my recent promise to get healthier and lose weight, finding low calorie desserts is critical to my success,!

Almondina are unique - a gourmet cookie, health food and snack, all in one. These extraordinary gourmet treats are created from 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 come 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
· AnniversaryT - Award winning delight with a touch of anise
· BranTreats® - Made with oat bran and the finest cinnamon "Cookies For Breakfast"
· Sesame - Irresistible, exotic, flavorful
- Seasonal Pumpkin Spice - A seasonal attraction with a delightful touch of fall spices combined with the highest quality almonds and
pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
· Chocolate Dipped – the Original® dipped in the finest, pure, rich dark chocolate was
previously offered only certain times of the year is now available year round

Almondina® Biscuits are: 

· All Natural
· Free of cholesterol, coloring and preservatives
· Made with no added fat or salt
· Low in calories - only 30 per slice
· Kosher and Pareve (non dairy) 

Almondina® Biscuits are also:
· great with tea or coffee
· as a cracker with cream cheese, Brie or other soft French cheeses
· with a glass of sherry
· crumbled as an ice cream topping
· served to youngsters with milk
· as a delicious breakfast on the way to work
· crunchy, addictive, healthful 

My weakness has always been chocolate... so it comes as no surprise that my two favorites were choconut and chocolate cherry!  All the delicious Almondia varieties are perfect alone, with tea or coffee, and of course ice cream and yogurt!

Almondina gourmet cookies are thin, crunchy and absolutely delicious!
