Almondina is a thin, light, crunchy cookies that packs in the flavor with minimal calories. They are made with all natural ingredients. I of course also love the fact that there is no added fat or salt. I enjoyed my Almondina with a cup of fresh brewed coffee of course. I was given several flavors to try and I found it very hard to pick out my favorite. I have to say that I loved them all. There are so many flavors to choose from. Some of them are The Original, Choconut, Cinnaroma, Gingerspice, Almonduo, and Sesame. There are so many more. If you want to see the full line you can check it out here. There is so much to tell you about this delicious delight let me share with you the company story.
"Almondina® is the inspiring success story of a man whose great loves
include both music and wonderful food. For generations his family loved
his grandmother Dina’s most secret cookie, which she called Petit Gateau
Sec. Yuval Zaliouk, an internationally known symphony conductor and
gourmet chef, always had a special place in his heart (and stomach) for
this exquisite, crispy wafer with the delicate flavor of roasted almonds
and the natural sweetness of plump raisins.
“Generous as she was in giving away her recipes, Grandmother Dina
kept the one for Petit Gateau Sec a total secret until the end of her
life. Only then did she finally reveal the secret to her daughter,
Ahuda, my mother.”
“It is with her blessing and with pride that the Zaliouk family shares these delicious, healthful wonders with your family.”
Long after his grandmother’s death, Zaliouk became aware that the
remarkable characteristics of this addictively delicious but extremely
nutritious cookie fell squarely in line with the growing demands of
health-conscious buyers at the end of the century. Within seven years
having started baking in his kitchen, the cookies, renamed Almondina®
for his grandmother, were available in all fifty states, sought after in
seven foreign countries, and had brought him recognition as
Entrepreneur of the Year.
This all-natural, crispy almond cookie has no cholesterol and no
added fat, salt, or preservatives. 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. The rush to eliminate fat from
gourmet foods too often has also eliminated most of the flavor, a fact
which is in sharp contrast to this enticingly delicious cookie.
Since the introduction of the classic Original flavor, eight more
distinctive variations have been introduced, all of which continue to be
packed with roasted almonds. A recent innovation, Chocolate Cherry,
combines the almonds with dark chocolate and plump cherries."
This by far is one of my new favorite snacks. I love the gourmet taste of the cookie yet they are all natural with no added fat or salt. They also have no cholesterol or preservatives. So they would make a great snack to help stay in line with out diets. With that being said you would think that the Almondina would loose flavor, well I have to tell you it does not in any way. To have a gourmet cookie that is also a healthy snack and taste delicious is something you don't see very often.
