Now on to our review!
First off I would like to say how each flavor was very delicious and went perfectly with my coffee and tea drinks. Not only was this perfect for a morning pairing with my yummy drinks but it was also a healthy snack that I paired with my little ones lunches. It went perfectly with their wheat bread sandwiches and also made a wonderful snack.
Out of all of the flavors I would have to say that the Chocolate Cherry was my absolute favorite. Now I’m you I’m not a big cherry fan and have a hard time eating them when they are atop my sundae’s. BUT when it was paired with those chocolate biscuit it was just amazing! The cherry it’s self was tenderly moist within the cookie and it just melted in your mouth when you bit into it. Oh I didn’t mention how there was small pieces of chocolate in the biscuit to! OMG talking about this has got me wanting to go grab some from my cabinet.
Here is a chocolate lover and coconut lovers dream right here, you defiantly get the coconut flavor with the chocolate and also you get to enjoy the chocolate chips in the cookie yum! This wasn’t to rich or under flavored at all. Defiantly a pick for you if you like coconut and chocolate
Wow was this biscuit packed with cinnamon, I was pleasantly surprised to see it have raisin’s since cinnamon and raisins go together so well. This was a super sweet snack for my kiddos they loved the raisins and hey I loved them eating healthy.
This biscuit delivers, It says Gingerspice and it is spicy and gingery! This reminded me slightly of a gingerbread cookie but with the almond’s and the punch of ginger it was a step up from the usual cookie. This biscuit went well with my morning Tea.
They got their recipe right with this Original biscuit, I can see how they started off with just one recipe and grew to become the company that they are today. Their raisins were still moist and the buttery flavor doesn’t over power you but it takes you down a lovely trip with your taste-buds. This was a great pairing with my kiddo’s wheat bread sandwiches they thought they were eating something “naughty” when they were actually eating healthy lol.
Wow! I was super surprised to see this in my package, I LOVE Pumpkin flavored anything! I’m such a huge fan of this flavor and im always so bummed since it really only ever comes out for 3 months out of the year, unless you buy it canned lol. I LOVED! This biscuit, wow! it wasn’t to sweet but it was defiantly sweet and delicious! it had a little kick of spice to it but not to much! It was amazing I loved it! I wasn’t able to share this with my little ones since I just loved it so much lol. The kids didn’t mind though since they were already digging into the other flavors lol
The last flavor I tried was the Sesame, now dont let this scare you! If your a fan of sesame chicken then you will LOVE this biscuit. It isn’t salty, or flavorless like you would think. Its so delicious with the rasins and the sesame seeds and the almonds, it just does a dance of flavors in your mouth each bite. Definatly was number 3 on my favorite list of all the biscuits I tried. LOVE This one!
Sweet N Sour Deal’s Conclusion on this review: I highly! Recommend this Almondina biscuit’s if your looking for a healthy snack option for you and your family. They are not only DELICIOUS! But they are something your whole family will love, this snack had my kids asking for more each time! I LOVE the Chocolate Cherry and I highly recommend you try it if you are a chocolate lover. I paired my biscuit’s with my coffee and tea in the morning, I didn’t have to add much sugar to my coffee since I had the biscuit so it already helped me cut down on my sugar intake!
