When Yuval Zaliouk was growing up, his grandma Dina would make a wonderful dry cookie she called “Petit Gateau Sec”. This little addictive cookie was full of almond and raisin flavor and everyone loved them.
Long after his grandma’s death, Yuval Zaliouk decided to make and sell the cookies for those who were searching for something that was healthy and taste good too. Thus Almondina was born, and it carried grandma Dina’s name too.
The original Almondina has to be my favorite. It has very simple ingredients: Almonds, flour, pure cane sugar, egg whites, natural flavors, and Kosher Pareve.
The ingredients are so simple, and they are AMAZING!!
Almondia’s mission is “To put a healthful cookie on every table”. Goose loves to eat these as a snack and with lunch, and I don’t feel bad about giving them to her. Just take a look at the Nutrition Facts, not bad.
This is a photo of the Gingerspice Almondia cookie. Instead of having raisins, it has diced ginger. So the cookies are full of the all natural flavors of almond and ginger.
I personally like to eat these with coffee or tea, but this is the type of cookie that does not require that. The Almondia cookies are thin and crunchy, but not like other unmentionable “cookies” where you think you are going to break your teeth eating them.
Another thing I like about the Almondia cookies is, there are no hidden perseveres or junk. Almondia uses all natural ingredients in their cookies.
Almondina has come up with some great flavors of these awesome little cookies too.
