It was difficult to choose a favorite among all because they were all delicious. ¬†This is the type of cookie that when I shop at Trader Joe’s, if they did not have my first selection…..it does not matter. I will pick-up the flavor they have in stock. ¬†Yup, not passing it up! ¬†I love to pair the thin cookie mostly with ice cream because it’s like having a treat after dinner but I don’t pay for it a day later at the scale! ¬†It tastes good, maybe so good that you forget that each sweet cookie is just around 30 to 35 calories. ¬†The selection is bountiful and you can choose from chocolate based cookies to just the Original. ¬†No added fat, salt and a cholesterol free product…..so, your heart will thank you as much as your taste buds.

AlmonDuo:

I love pistachio nuts, so this one really was the perfect little cookie for me. ¬†Almondinas are thin, but do not mistake that for being dry because they are not. ¬†They are crisp and light and the cookie is just studded with with perfect slivers of almonds and pistachios. ¬†It’s a happy cookie that will make anyone smile! ¬†Dip in chocolate ganache and you may even get the giggles ūüôā

Chocolate Cherry:

This cookie has a rich chocolate base that is deep in flavor. ¬†You have a great combination of plump dried cherries that just complement the cocoa perfectly but also almonds. ¬†I enjoy having this cookie with ice cream because in my eyes it’s almost a sundae with the fudge, nuts and even cherry on top! ¬†Also, you can have your chocolate and enjoy it too with 4 cookies only at 132 calories.

Cinnaroma:

I love cinnamon but tend to avoid it in products because manufacturers forgot the words, “a touch of Cinnamon”, ¬†Almondina thankfully has not. ¬†You taste the spice but you will find it compliments versus just engulfing your mouth with it. ¬†Your taste buds still enjoy the almonds, and the raisins really make me think of a loaf of cinnamon bread when I have this cookie. ¬†You also pick up the malted barley flour, giving this cookie a distinct flavor.

GingerSpice:

This is what I call my “breakfast cookie” because I enjoy it with a pear based yogurt I like having in the morning. ¬†The Almondina is like the cereal that never loses it’s crunch in milk but yogurt in it’s place. ¬†I start my morning with this healthy parfait and you get to enjoy the diced Australian ginger they used that really gives it that gingery-snap taste. ¬†Nice to have a cookie like this available year round!
