Who doesn’t LOVE cookies? I know I do – maybe too much! If you do, too, you’re going to love this giveaway!
This giveaway is brought to you by Almondina
The British got a few things right in my opinion and one of those things is Tea time. The British believed that part of being civilized is having the good sense to know when to take a break and relax. I can’t agree more. Even during the wars that they fought all over the globe the Brits would cease fire and break for tea time at at around 10 am. The Brits were usually most annoyed at the uncouth enemies that they were fighting against for not having the common courtesy to stop shooting at them while they were enjoying their tea.
I like a good cup of Earl Grey tea. I drink mostly coffee but I like the traditional morning tea time too. I even drink it out a proper tea cup. Today I had the good luck of being provided with the ideal snack to go with my morning tea.
Almondina sent us a sample pack of some of their cookies to review. For my tea time snack I picked the Gingerspice, Choconut and the Sesame cookies. Last night when the cookies arrived we all had a taste of each of the cookie samples and the Gingerspice was a favorite for all of us so I considered myself lucky to have had the last few Gingerspice cookies with my tea.
About the “Cookie”
Almondina markets their product as a cookie but to me it is a biscuit. A biscuit is crunchy and can usually be snapped without it bending first. A cookie to me is moist and soft and Almondina is not moist or soft.
Almondina “cookies” are good on their own but traditionally a biscuit is best had with a drink so Almondina accompanies coffee , tea or even wine perfectly. You can also use use Almondina to make a tasty cheese snack by smearing some soft cheeses between two Almondina cookies.
I see a cookies as a treat and a biscuit as a snack and again Almondina shines greater as a snack than a treat. Almondina goes to great length to point out that they intend to provide you with a healthier snack. The companies motto is “To put a healthful cookie on every table”
I’m personally very grateful for having discovered Almondina because I have missed biscuits. Here in America I find my family prefers the soft chewy cookies stuffed with chocolate or filling and that is just not for me. I prefer the crunchy ones and being able to dip my cookie or biscuits in my coffee or tea is a bonus too. This all-natural, crispy almond cookie has no cholesterol and no added fat, salt, or preservatives so I feel good about packing it in with the kids lunches for school.
