I was very excited to try Almondina because we are always on the lookout for healthier snacks. I not only love the history behind Almondina, but I also love that they’re healthy! You can see the great points made above! Awesome, right?! For my review I was sent a sampler pack of 7 packs of Almondina in different varieties. As always, each family member had a preference, and our toddler and myself, well, we liked them all! They have a very unique, crunchy texture with a sweet taste. I particularly loved the chocolate with cherries. I would definitely say that was my “favorite,” but I always tend to love chocolate! Our older 2 kids actually preferred just the original Almondina, and they ate them up rather quickly! I love when there is a healthier snack that they love! It makes me feel good about what I can offer them without pouting that they don’t like it! (I’m sure other parents know exactly what I’m talking about!)
Some of the flavors we got to try: Original, Ginger Spice, Choconut, Cinnaroma, Chocolate Cherry, and Sesame. I was surprised at all the choices when I received this package! I didn’t know where to start, but we were all eager to try them right away!
When I received the package, I was also really surprised (and excited) to see that they were shipped from Maumee, Ohio because I grew up in Northwest Ohio near Maumee! How had I not tried this great, healthy snack before? That’s seriously what I thought! I actually already know an appreciate the health benefits of almonds, so when they also discuss Almonds & Health on their site that is definitely something I can appreciate! Plus, as I said, this is a snack I not only feel good about eating, but I feel good about giving them to my kids as well! I am very glad we had the opportunity to truly discover Almondina! I love their quote “The delicious Cookies without the Guilt” because that is exactly how I feel about them!
You can purchase Almondina cookies on their website or at local stores near you such as: WalMart, TJ Maxx, Trader Joe’s, Cost Plus World Market, Whole Foods, and more! View their Store Finder for the full list!
