“KITCHEN GOURMET”: Almondina: The Delicious Crisps without The Guilt!

Feb 07, 2020
Almondina® 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.

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.

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

Since the introduction of the classic Original flavor, more distinctive variations have been introduced, all of which continue to be packed with roasted almonds.

Along with the original cookies, Almondina also offers Toastees, delicious crunchy almond crisps for special occasions and get-togethers. It’s a lighter version of Grandma Dina’s original secret family recipe. These delicious Almondina Toastees crisps are a highly requested snack item at the office, school events, on road trips and at parties. Extremely snackable and crunchy, Almondina Toastees are perfect on their own or with toppings. They are excellent when paired with cheeses, superb in ice cream or yogurt, and a great treat for all ages. They come in four tantalizing flavors: Cranberry Almond, Coconut Orange Almond, Lemon Poppy Almond, and Sesame Almond.

Now, Almondina Brand Biscuits introduces its latest snack – Almondina Almond Bites. These twice baked almond crisps are Non GMO Project verified and contain the same simple ingredients found in all Almondina products. They are all-natural, have no cholesterol, no preservatives or trans fats, no added fat or salt, and are dairy free. Almondina Almond Bites have 4 grams of protein and are only 140 calories per serving (about 12 pieces). Deliciously snackable and crunchy , these Bite are great out of the bag or with toppings.

Almondina Almond Bites flavors include: The Original, with almonds, raisins and the warmth of vanilla in a bite-sized portion; Chocolate Almond and Raisin; Ginger Turmeric Almond; and Ancient Grains, Blueberries and Almonds.

Today, all of Almondina’s delectable award-winning cookie recipes are prepared just the way Grandma Dina used to make in her kitchen – baked thin, crunchy and sweet. For more information on Almondina’s please visit www.almondina.com.
