What Is Almondina?  Who Cares, Just Let Me Eat Them!

Almondina Cookie or Biscuit

A debate has been raging at the Dad Does offices and has spilled over to my home life as well.  When we received the Almondina pictured above, it sure looked like another dry and jaw breaking biscotti product.  One bite into the Almondina and you could tell something special was going on.  It was crunchy, but not too crunchy.  It had an excellent biscuit like consistency.  So, Almondina are biscuits, case closed.

Not so fast, as you take a few more bites and hit some sweet raisins and the cinnamon starts to kick in, the Almondina cleary becomes a treat, a cookie.  If this is cookie, better not eat to much – clearly something this tasty must be filled with fat.  Hold the phone, a quick look at the label shows these all natural crunchy almond cookies do not contain cholesterol, added fat, trans-fat, salt or preservatives.

The debate rages on  – Almondina is a cookie.  No, it is a biscuit.  No, it is cookie biscuit from another planet.  It is clearly the work of an alien race!  To be honest, none of us know exactly what to call Almondina, but we all love it!

It Turns Out That Grandma Does Know Best

A quick visit to the Almondina website and you learn it was not an advanced alien race that created the “delicious cookie without the guilt” it was Grandma of course.   Many years back, Yuval Zaliouk’s grandmother Dina made a most secret cookie, which she called Petit Gateau Sec.  Yuval always loved the almond based cookie and long after his grandmother’s death, Yuval realized that the cookie was not only delicious, but also free of harmful additives.  Within seven years of when he 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.

All a great story, but all that really matters for Tasty Tuesday is that these Almondina cookies taste great and make an awesome treat.  They now make eight different flavors and everyone we have tried has been a true treat.  Visit the Almondina site and pick up some Almondina today, you will not be disappointed.
