Congratulations! Now all the winner has to do is reply to the email I will be sending in just a few minutes within 48 hours with her full name and mailing address so that I can forward to the company who will be shipping the 8 packages of Almondina direct.


Almondina – A Cookie Lover’s Delight!

(picture from the Almondina website-this is not the package I received)


As I sit here dunking the Chocolate Cherry Almondina cookies into my coffee-I am in ecstasy. These thin cracker-like cookies are perfect for dunking! Sturdy enough for a long dunk-and still have a crunch. The pieces of cherries make for a sweet treat. I was sent 8 packages of these cookies and each one I try is just as good or better then the one before. Of course this will depend on your taste buds.

Made from an old family recipe that thankfully contains no cholesterol, no added fat, salt, or preservatives you don’t have to dunk these to enjoy. I actually opened the Cinnaroma package first and felt no desire to dunk! It is definitely my favorite—the smell and taste of cinnamon was wonderful—that package was finished very quickly. I love cinnamon and the pieces of raisin made it taste like cinnamon sugar. Lots of pieces of almonds as well. There are 16 in each package. Each little rectangle is approx 30 calories no matter which variety you buy which isn’t bad. The carbohydrate and sugar counts are a bit high for a diabetic but if you are real careful-------and try to eat just one or two (pretty hard I admit!)----The pieces of almonds-found in each variety are a source of protein.

(picture from the Almondina website)

So far the original Almondina Biscuits are my second favorite (after the Cinnaroma)—these are the ones you generally see on the store shelves, as my Mother informed me as she decided since I was sent two packages of the originals—I should give her one package. It seems she has purchased and loves Almondina biscuits! (Yes, I did give her a package of the original flavor). She is attempting to get me to give her one more of the packages! These little cookies are chock full of almonds and raisins.

The other varieties I was sent are: Choconut, Seseme, and Gingerspice. I am trying to be careful and only eat 2 pieces at a time so have not taste tested them yet but can see that they are also chock full of almonds and the sweetness will come from bits of raisins or another fruit. They have a bunch of other varieties like Pumpkin Spice (which I may end up ordering) and Yogurt Dipped Almondina Brantreats. They also have gift packs which you can purchase. And of course you can find them in stores-just use their store finder in their website.

The great folks at Almondina have agreed to send one lucky winner the same variety I was sent!

To recap what I received:

2 of the Original
1 of the Choconut
1 of the Seseme
1 of the Gingerspice
1 of the Cinnaroma
1 of the Chocolate Cherry

For a chance at being the one lucky winner (US entrants only please) here is what you have to do: (please remember to put your email in each comment you make!!)
