Toastees From Almondina Review and Giveaway! Ends 6/27/2017

My family is snack crazy.  We are always searching for the perfect snack! Happy Husband is an after-work, TV time snacker.  Me? Early morning / late evening whilst enjoying coffee or hot cocoa.

Sweet, gooey cookies and cakes don't appeal to me, oddly enough.  I prefer lightly sweet, crunchy snacks.

I was simply delighted to discover Toastees from Almondina!  These wonderful, crunchy almond cookies are fabulous! Thinly sliced and filled with almonds and assorted flavours -- they are a tasty, low-calorie, low-fat, healthy treat! 

Toastees come in assorted flavours: Cranberry Almond, Coconut Orange Almond, Lemon Poppy Almond, Sesame Almond.  The Coconut Orange Almond is my favourite. My Mother just loves the Cranberry Almond!


Grandmother’s Secret

Grandmother’s secret recipe is a no added fat,

no-cholesterol cookie for our time.

dadi-momAlmondina® 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.

“Generous as she was in giving away her recipes, Grandmother Dina kept the one for Petit Gateau Sec a total secret until the end of her life. Only then did she finally reveal the secret to her daughter, Ahuda, my mother.”

“It is with her blessing and with pride that the Zaliouk family shares these delicious, healthful wonders with your family.”

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 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 (paired with something else to be enjoyed). However, 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.
Since the introduction of the classic Original flavor, more distinctive variations have been introduced, all of which continue to be packed with roasted almonds.

Almondina makes all of their products with love and care. That's why they taste so good!

Don't just take my word for it, just look at the joy on my Mom's face!
