Almondina Cookie Review & Giveaway

Posted on May 21 2014 - 3:56pm by Susan Bewley

Disclosure: I received these products for free to review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.


Like many other coffee drinkers, I sometimes love to treat myself to a good dipping cookie. The problem with many of these cookies, however, is that they are filled with fat and are usually pretty high in the calorie department. With me trying to lose weight, I knew I had to find something that not only tasted amazing, but was a good reward when I wanted a sweet treat. As I was looking for the perfect cookie, I was approached by Almondina, who asked us to review their low calorie cookies. Curious, and loving a good almond-flavored cookie, I immediately said yes and couldn’t wait for them to arrive!

Almondina: Overall

When I first tried these low calorie cookies, I really didn’t know what to think. Were they just for dipping, or to be eaten as normal cookies? Well, I discovered they are awesome both ways. In all honesty, these cookies are delicious! While I was sent a variety of the cookies for the review, the original flavor and choconut are hands down the favorite of both my husband and myself. I will admit though, these cookies are very addictive. If you aren’t careful it is very easy to eat the whole package since they are just so yummy. Right now, I can’t wait to order more of these cookies. Based on our own experience, we are delighted to give Almondina’s cookies an A rating!
