Bullock's Buzz: Almondina: All of the Flavor, None of the Guilt!

Almondina: All of the Flavor, None of the Guilt!

Try Some for Yourself! Win Your Own Almondina Cookies!

   One of the hardest things when trying to lose weight is having to stay away from all of those delicious treats like chips, cookies and candy.  And when I do give in to the urge, I am usually consumed with guilt and/or remorse.  That is until I tried Almondina® cookies, whose motto is the “delicious cookie without the guilt”.  And what a perfect motto it is!

    Almondina® cookies are all-natural, crispy almond cookies that have no cholesterol, no added fat, salt, coloring or preservatives, and they have only 30 calories!  They are the perfect cookie and health food all in one!
   First introduced to the market in 1989, these yummy treats are created from Yuval Zaliouk's secret family recipe which has been passed down from generation to generation.
   Each cookie is thin, incredibly crunchy and absolutely filled with almonds and other ingredients depending on the flavor.  They are so flavorful you simply will not believe they are actually healthy!  Almondina® is available in a wide selection of flavors, many of which I had the opportunity to try!

Original 
– a deliciously perfect crunchy mix of sweet almonds and raisins.  This is my absolute favorite flavor!

Chocolate Cherry 
– delicious dark chocolate biscuits with slices of almonds and sweet bits of cherries

Choconut
- crunchy rich chocolate biscuits filled with slivers of almonds

Cinnaroma® 
– delectable crispy biscuits seasoned with chunks of Australian Ginger and filled with almonds and raisins.

Sesame 
– crunchy slightly sweet biscuits with slices of almonds and raisins mixed together with bunches of sesame for an exotic flavor.

Seasonal Pumpkin Spice
– these seasonal biscuits have just a touch of fall spices combined with sliced almonds and pumpkin seeds (pepitas).

In addition to flavors I tried, Almondina® is also available in these great flavors:
  • AlmonDuo® – double the nuts with almonds and pistachios
  • Anniversary - Award winning delight with a touch of anise
  • Bran Treats® - Made with oat bran and a dash of cinnamon
  • Chocolate Dipped – the Original® dipped in the pure, rich dark chocolate.  This flavor used to be offered only certain times of the year, but it is now available year round.
  • Delights – The Original® Almondina totally covered in creamy in Milk chocolate
  • Yogurt Dipped – Bran treats® covered on one side with a layer of all natural yogurt
My Verdict
   These thin, crunchy cookies are so good it is hard to believe they are not filled with sugar and other junk, but instead are actually a healthy treat!  I really like how the cookies themselves have just a hint of sweetness that is increased by the added ingredients such as almonds, raisins, cherries, etc.  They are also very filling which means you don’t eat many before your craving is satisfied.  Of course the best part of all is that they are all natural with no added preservatives, fat, salt or sugar, and they are low calorie with no cholesterol!

   Although Almondina® cookies are delicious on their own, there are many other ways you can enjoy them!  Try them with coffee or tea, as a cracker with cream cheese, Brie or other soft chesses, crumble them on top of ice cream or frozen yogurt, or enjoy them with a nice glass of wine or sherry.  They are perfect as a quick breakfast, with a salad or sandwich for lunch and even as a snack with a cold glass of milk! 
   But don’t just take my word for it!  Try them for yourself!  You can find Almondina® at many local groceries such as Fairway, Publix, Whole Foods, The Fresh Market, Wal-Mart, Trader Joe’s, World Market, TJ Maxx, Marshalls and many others.   You can see a complete list of stores by going to their store finder at www.almondina.com, as well as order directly through the site!  Be sure to check them out on both Facebook and Twitter for all of the latest product news and promotions!

I'd love the original except my husband is allergic to almonds and I'm in Canada :)

I would enjoy them on the go! This would be something that I keep in my car, so if I get the munchies while driving, I can eat something yummy "without the guilt"!
