My Review

Finding good snacks has been, for me, one of the hardest parts when on my journey to living a greener lifestyle. It can be difficult to give up years of bad habits when it comes to snack foods. Any busy mom can tell you that although we do our best to make sure our kids are eating right, we tend to not be so picky when it comes to ourselves. When you're tired and hungry, you reach for whatever is available.

I was really surprised that Almondina sent such a large package for review. Very pleased though! Here is what I received:

I know what you're thinking! Low calorie, no added fat or salt, no cholesterol, it can't be that good, right? Wrong! I devoured the whole bag of Almondina Chocolate Cherry in about 30 minutes!

That particular flavor is my favorite, but the others are really good too!

These are great snacks that are good for you! What more do you want in a cookie?

They are great in the morning with coffee or as an afternoon snack.

They also have a really great back story that you can read about here. They are made using the secret recipe of the owner's grandmother:

This Delectable award-winning cookie recipe is prepared just the way Grandma Dina used to make in her kitchen.

If you've been thinking about getting some, DO IT! They are really great!
