Almondina: The Delicious Cookie Without The Guilt
Disclosure: I was provided a sampler box of Almondina Cookies for review. Any and all opinions are my own and have not been influenced.
I was contact by Almondina to try out their delicious cookie. I was very intrigued and couldn’t wait to give them a try. My package arrived and it was filled with lots of different choices for my family and I to try.
All three of the kids wanted to try the cookies right away. We tried the original first and there was mixed reactions. My two year old loved them. He ate most of the pack. My five year old didn’t like it as much I think he didn’t like the almonds. My daughter didn’t like the original but she love the Chocolate Cherry and Choconut. I shared a few packs with my sister and mother. They really liked it and because they want to find better snacks to reduce their sugar intake. The packs have three compartments and you can just take a few with you to snack during meals or for your after meal snack. They also work great in the kids lunch boxes.
