Almondina Gourmet biscuit cookies

Ever want a nice treat of a cookie without the guilt of all the calories? Also do you like Almonds? Almondina contacted me to try out their think crispy cookie. I was excited to try it since I had never had one of them before and really enjoy trying new things.

Darin was especially happy to see the box of goodies since he loves almonds. He’s always happy when we get a package with food it in. I don’t always tell him something is coming, but this one I did, so he was looking forward to it.

In the box was almost all the different flavors that Almondina offers. They have a huge variety of choices:
