Almondina comes with a great history.
Let me tell you a little about who they are and how they got started. 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. 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 wonderful cookie was born: 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.
At only 30 calories a cookie you can eat 3 for less then 100 calories and feel no guilt. I love my Almondina dipped in coffee or hot coco, but I also enjoy them plain. We have taken on hiking trips, long car rides and just in case we get hungry snack for a long day out of the house. EXCELLENT snack. The taste of each one is as the package states the flavor. They come in a wide variety of flavors.
My favorite of them all was the AlmonDuo®, thin crisp cookie packed full of
almonds and pistachios. LOVE this one!
