We're just a couple of weeks away from Halloween and there's one thing that's on everyone's mind... treats. We can't let the trick-or-treaters have all the fun. Here at the Treat Yourself Giveaway Hop, hosted by So Easy Being Green and Viva Veltoro, you can win a treat for yourself. Be sure to hop around to all the giveaways in the Hop Linky below, and don't forget the ultimate treat... the Treat Yourself Grand Prize!
I recently had the opportunity to try Almondina Biscuits, a delightful brand of almond cookies that are equal parts delicious and addictive. The wonderful folks at Almondina are generously offering a sampler package valued at $41 for one lucky reader. Let me tell you more about these little cookies I fell in love with.
I was excited to try Almondina cookies because almond flavored baked goods were one of the things I craved during both pregnancies. I tried a variety of flavors and liked them all, but my favorites were Choconut, Chocolate Cherry, and Cinnaroma. I will be buying all three often and having them for breakfast and snacks. They reminded me of baked treats I ate for breakfast while living with a host family in Spain. The cookies are a healthy alternative to fat and preservative laden goods. They have no added fat, and no salt or cholesterol. I tried to put my finger on exactly what makes these little biscuits so addictive, and I think it is a combination of the light, crunchy texture and the full flavor unexpected from such a calorie light cookie. Each cookie has only about 30 calories! The only thing I didn't like about the cookies was that it was really difficult to not eat the entire package. The Bear loved them, too, so they are officially toddler approved.
The Original is perfect, with a roasted almond flavor that can't be beat. I think the Gingerspice flavor would be perfect for pregnant mamas battling morning sickness. They even have a Pumpkin Spice flavor I'm dying to try. I'm hoping to try the chocolate and yogurt dipped varieties next. There is a flavor for everyone and every taste. Almondina are the perfect snack to put out for a play date or brunch, and a package would make a fabulous hostess or neighbor gift during the holidays.
Are you ready to try Almondina? Almondina cookies are available at Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Walmart, Brookshires, and a variety of grocery and specialty stores. A 4 oz package retails for around $3.50, but you get even better deals on larger quantitiies through the Almondina website. Visit the Almondina website for a full list of retailers. Follow Almondina on Facebook and Twitter for product updates and deals. If you like almonds, cookies, and things that are delicious, you will love them.
