Have any of you ever tried Almondina? We just received a box filled with Almondina! there were 2 Original, 1 Chocolate Cherry, 1 Pumpkin Spice, 1 Cinnaroma, 1 Gingerspice, 1 Choconut, and 1 Sesame. These are the type of treats you hide! You know, so everyone else can't find them. Perfect for sitting down first thing in the morning with a cup of coffee or hot tea. Might even be great with hot cocoa! Dip them if you like, but they are GREAT without being dipped!
|See all the almonds!|
I was only kidding about hiding them. I made sure to share! These would make a good snack to serve when you get together for a morning coffee, or invite friends over for an evening snack. Get the coffee brewing and pull out a couple of different flavors of Almondina and you are ready to go!
|Don't these look great!|
Almondina is a Delicious Cookie Without the Guilt! The recipe includes no added fat, no cholesterol and no salt.
A little about Almondina:
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.
|See how thin they are! Nice and crunchy!|
One neighbor will receive a package of Almondina just like I did.
