We love cookies just as much as the next family, but most of them are loaded with sugar, and packed with calories and fat. Recently we had the opportunity to try Almondina Brand Cookies, what a delightful change. So different from other cookies we have come to know, so tasty & healthy.
Yuval Zaliouk, inherited his beloved grandmother Dina's prized family secret recipe for the cookie she called, Petit Gateau Sec. 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.
I wasn't sure what to expect when we were asked to try Almondina® Gourmet Cookies, but to my surprise Almondina Cookies were extremely delicious. We didn't just get to try one out, we got the lucky opportunity to try seven different flavors. Not only are they healthier than most cookies, they are packed with flavor. The best part is these delectable cookies do not contain cholesterol, added fat, trans-fats, salt or preservatives and only contain 35-40 calories each. A great healthy alternative to snacking.
The Original Almond Biscuits - The delicious cookie without the guilt™ - this is the cookie that made us famous and it is still our #1 bestseller. Based on Grandma Dina's original secret recipe that she called Petit Gateau Sec, we begin with top quality almonds, plump raisins, and a blend of other natural flavors, then cook this to a perfect crispness. Delicious. Crunchy. All-natural. No Cholesterol.
Brantreats - Cookies for Breakfast™ - A thin, almond, raisin, cinnamon cookie with 30% oat bran. This cinnamon Brantreat® cookie makes a perfect snack or is great for breakfast. It has less fat than other premium cookies. Delicious. All-natural. No Cholesterol.
Cinnaroma - The Cinn-full Treat™ - The Original for cinnamon lovers. Almonds, raisins, and cinnamon just seem to be made to go together - so we combined them in our Cinnaroma cookie. These make a wonderful snack, but we like them best on a Sunday morning with tea of coffee. Delicious. Crunchy. All-natural. No Cholesterol.
Sesame - Open Sesame Release the Magic - an Almondina® cookie with an exotic twist. The roasted sesame adds a flavor that magically complements the almonds and raisins for a truly irresistible taste. Delicious. Crunchy. All-natural. No Cholesterol. Have a nice CRUNCH!™
Gingerspice - A surprising Slice of Spice™ - zesty chunks of flavorful real ginger give this cookie a real kick. The sweet, chewy pieces of ginger add an exciting flavor dimension to this crunchy cookie. Delicious. Crunchy. All-natural. No Cholesterol.
Choconut - Indulge without the Guilt™ - The world's finest chocolate in a delicious crunchy cookie. If you are a chocolate lover, then this is the cookie for you! We took the Almondina cookie recipe and added some of the best chocolate in the world. The result is a delicious, chocolaty, crunchy cookie that is still low in calories. No wonder it is a bestseller. Delicious. Crunchy. All-natural. No Cholesterol. Indulge!
Chocolate Cherry - For chocolate lovers everywhere. We combined the world's finest dark chocolate with plump cherries to produce an irresistible, decadent treat without guilt. Delicious. Crunchy. All-Natural. No Cholesterol. Indulge!
The real almonds in each variety give Almondina® cookies the signature that sets them apart from other snack products. Follow Almondina on Twitter or find them on Facebook.
