Toastees by Almondina Review & Giveaway

11:01 PM

If you have been a reader of my blog for any amount of time, then you know that our family LOVES to snack. As a mom of little ones, I am constantly trying to find snacks for them that aren't pure sugar. You ladies that are moms can relate, I'm sure. :) My third child is a grazer, meaning he eats very little at meal times and snacks lightly throughout the day. No matter how I try to change that...it just is what it is. So our favorite, easy snacks are probably cheeses, fruits and crackers. Peanut butter is also a frequent flyer on the snack list too. :) I am a fan of anything crunchy, sweet and/or salty...snacks don't hang around our house for very long at all.
Today, I am going to introduce you to a fun snack that I have had the privilege of trying and they are SO tasty! Toastees are small, bite sized almond thins that are made by Almondina. This company is one that I have reviewed in the past and I have never been disappointed by their products. Before I continue with my review, here is a brief overview of this company...
Almondina® is the inspiring success story of a man whose great loves include both music and wonderful food. For generations his family loved his grandmother Dina’s most secret cookie, which she called Petit Gateau Sec. Yuval Zaliouk, an internationally known symphony conductor and gourmet chef, always had a special place in his heart (and stomach) for this exquisite, crispy wafer with the delicate flavor of roasted almonds and the natural sweetness of plump raisins.

Long after his grandmother’s death, Zaliouk became aware that the remarkable characteristics of this addictively delicious but extremely nutritious cookie fell squarely in line with the growing demands of health-conscious buyers at the end of the century. Within seven years having 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.

Wow! What a story. I love supporting small companies whose roots go deep and the love of family runs strong. I was pleased and honored when offered the chance to review their amazing almond thins. 
So, for this review I was sent several bags of Toastees. The flavors I received were Cranberry Almond, Coconut Orange and Sesame Almond. The other available flavor is Lemon Poppy Almond, which sounds amazing! I love lemon anything so I would love to try that flavor sometime.
When my Almondina Toastees arrived in the mail, my children got wind of the fact that there were snacks in the box and of course, we had to open it immediately. The first flavor we tried were the Cranberry Almond and these proved to be the favorite out of the entire box. These little almond thins are small, yet they pack an enormous crunch and just the right amount of sweetness. They are not overly sweet, just enough to satisfy a sweet tooth craving. I get those a lot these days and a handful of Toastees does the trick! The Coconut Orange flavor is also very tasty…a slight orange flavor with just a hint of coconut which makes for a nice blend of savory bites, perfect for that afternoon coffee break. I won’t tell you how long one bag of Toastees lasted here…they went FAST though! I had to hide the rest of my bags just so I would have a snack for my special “mommy break” that I enjoy in the evenings. I so enjoyed reviewing these snacks, and was grateful for the opportunity to share them with you today.
If you would like to find some yummy Toastees by Almondina, you can find them at the following stores and websites…Sprouts Markets, Bed Bath & Beyond, Publix, Fairway Markets, Kroger Michigan, Amazon, Almondina.com  and others. Each bag retails for around $3.99.
