Almondina Review & Giveaway


I was contacted by Almondina to see if I would like to review their new line of products on my blog...Well of course I did!

Almondina sent me a variety box of their newest snacks, Toastees. Almondina cookies have been on the market for over a quarter of a century. Toastees are a new snack/cookie, that is the first product introduced by the next generation of the Almondina family. The flavors included in my sample pack were:

  •  Coconut Orange Almond
  •  Cranberry Almond
  •  Sesame Almond


So, I have a dirty secret, I am addicted to cookies, I can say no to pastries, cakes, ice cream, even a candy bar, but I can never say no to a cookie (unless it's oatmeal raisin). After trying Almondina Toastees, I could probably trade out my very bad for me cookies with these almond thins. Why? Because they have an amazing taste.
  • The Coconut Orange, tastes like an orange Milano cookie, they're freaking delicious. I can't taste the coconut, but the orange is noticable.
  • When eating the Sesame Almond Toastees, the first thing I taste is vanilla and the after taste is sesame flavor, they are surprisingly yummy.
  • As for the Cranberry flavor, they have a mild sweet cranberry flavor. I know it's cranberry, but it reminds me of Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia.
Aside from their delicious taste. They are a healthy alternative to regular cookies. Toastees run about 65 to 69 calories per serving (7 pieces), usually after 1 or 2 servings my cravings are settled and I can put them down, which is really good for me. They have no added fat, no added salt, zero preservatives, and are dairy free. The dairy free part is huge for me because my daughter is intolerant and it's so hard finding a yummy snack for her. \

I highly recommend Almondina Toastees, they are delicious, good for you, and a lower calorie snack alternative. I received samples in exchange for an honest review, my opinions are my own.

Resolution VoxBox


Oh, how I love Influenster (a free program that sends you FREE products to try).

The most recent box they sent me was the Resolution VoxBox. Included in it was:
  • Crispy Fruit 
    • Weird texture, kinda of a melt in your mouth thing, but delicious
  • Febreeze One
    • Fresh clean scent, with an earth friendlier bottle
  • OraBrush Tongue Cleaner
    • I gave this to my co-worker, because, well I just use my toothbrush to clean my tongue.
  • Burts Bees Protein Powder
    • I gave this to my boss, who needs protein packed foods for her active lifestyle.
  • A bag of #Popchips
    • I received the Cheddar & Sour Cream flavor, at 100 calories per bag I did not feel guilty eating the entire bag.
  • A coupon for a free Sabra Grab & Go Guacamole
    • I'll be giving this away since I don't like guacamole
  • Orgain Protein Bar
    • I received the Peanut Butter flavor and didn't enjoy it. It was dry and the peanut butter flavor tasted diluted.

I received these products free of charge in exchange for my honest opinions, my views on the products are my own.
