Almondina #Review and #Giveaway

 *Please click on the title of this post to view it entirely if you cannot see the Rafflecopter form*

Have you heard of Almondina? I never heard of them till recently. I had the A-M-A-Z-I-N-G chance to review Almondina cookies. These cookies are delicious.This all-natural, crispy almond cookie has no cholesterol and no added fat, salt, or preservatives! Wanna know more about the success story behind the cookies? You can read it in the scroll bar below.

A Grandmother's secret recipe is no added fat, no-cholesterol, no salt cookie for our time.

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, crunchy wafer with the delicate flavor of roasted almonds, the
natural sweetness of plump raisins and the warmth of vanilla.

"Generous as she was in giving away her recipes, Grandma 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 my family shares these
delicious, healthful wonders with your family," says Yuval.

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 consumers at the end of
the century. Within seven years, having started baking in his
kitchen, the biscuits (renamed Almondina® after Dina, his
grandmother), were available in all fifty states, sought after in
seven foreign countries, and had brought him recognition as
Entrepreneur of the Year.

These all-natural, wonderfully crunchy almond biscuits do not contain cholesterol, added fat,
trans-fats, salt, or preservatives. They are a delightful accompaniment for coffee, tea, soft cheeses and dessert wines, or
just as an everyday snack.

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 these enticingly delicious biscuits.

Since the introduction in 1989 of the classic The Original flavor, eight more distinctive
variations have been introduced, all of which continue to be packed with roasted almonds.

The Company is Celebrating a Delicious Crunch for More Than 20 Years.

Its mission remains the same:


These cookies are absolutely delicious and I love ALL OF THEM! It was really hard to choose which to eat first. I received several different cookies.The Original (x2), Choconut (1),Cinnaroma® (1), Gingerspice (1), Sesame (1) and Chocolate Cherry(1). 
 I have to say, it is a first for me to actually not feel bad for grubbing on cookies. These cookies are completely cholesterol ,fat, salt, and preservatives free!! How neat is that? The first cookie that I tried was the Choconut. I am hooked and in love.
 You can find more cookies on their website HERE and  you can find them on Facebook and Twitter as well.

You can BUY these cookies for $3.94 a bag or you can buy a 24 pack for $74.16
