Almondina Incredible Cookie Giveaway Oct. 2 - 16, 2013

Welcome to the Almondina Incredible Cookie Giveaway!

Sponsored by: Almondina

Hosted by: Savory Savings

Co-hosted by: Conversations with Carolyn

It is an unfortunate truth that we have mostly accepted the fact in America that “diet” or “good for you” food must taste bad.  Need to eat more foods with no trans fats or no cholesterol?  Prepare to be bored to tears while you eat and not be satisfied, especially if it is a little treat you are after.  That has all changed!  More than 20 years ago, a young man, already well-known as a symphony conductor and gourmet chef, decided to bring to the masses, a delicious, nutritious and all-natural cookie, created many years before by his beloved grandmother.  Almondina (so named for his grandmother!), quickly grew in popularity for their ease to eat, delicious flavors and powerful list of ‘no’s”.  These cookies have no cholesterol, no trans-fats, no preservatives and no salt!  Do you get any better than that?


Krista over at Savory Savings had a chance to check out these delightful cookies and shared her favorite ways to enjoy many of Almondina’s flavors.  Be sure to take a minute to check out her review to see what Almondina has to offer!

Would you like to win an assortment of Almondina All-Natural Cookies?  This giveaway is open to US residents, ages 18 and older.   The giveaway will run from October 2, 2013 through October 16, 2013 at 11 PM CST.

Gone in 60 seconds!

Do you want to know what goes over the lips and down to the stomach in 60 seconds?  The #GOTITFREE Special K Nourish™ Cranberry Almond, Lemon Twist and Dark Chocolate Nut Delight Nourish Bars! 

I opened the box from Bzz Agent and opened these bars before I ever took pictures of them.  The first bar was gone in 60 seconds!  That was the Lemon Twist!  Real Ingredients! Real Delight! A hearty multi-grain blend with oats, wheat, barley and quinoa combined with real lemon and citrus peel.  I felt like I was a judge on Top Chef judging these homemade bars! The bars are a hearty multi-grain blend of quinoa, oats, wheat and barley, it’s a good source of protein and fiber*. Take all that goodness and combine it with real lemon and citrus zest and you’ve got a tasty treat that is anything but boring! Only contains 6g total fat per serving and that makes me love love love these bars and have them in my food pantry ALL the time! 

I am so used to low fat, low calorie nutritious bars that are hard to chew, dry, lacking real ingredients and too expensive for a second try. 

I #GOTITFREE coupons as well and I hope to see more in the Sunday papers or I think I will write Kellogg's and ask for coupons to try this again.  And I will definitely buy them off the shelf no matter how much they cost.  So far we haven't been able to get the product in our Kroger store so we will try other grocery stores that are further away from us.

Special K Nourish™ Cranberry Almond Nutrition Bars are made with a unique multi-grain blend with superfoods like quinoa, oats, wheat and barley, then combined with the great taste of real cranberries and crunchy almonds.

You can get all that flavor plus a good source of protein and fiber* all for less than 200 calories!  That's what I call a great deal and a great tasting bar for me when I'm on the run and can't stop for a meal.  I plan to put some of the Special K lemon twist, cranberry almond and dark chocolate nut delight bars in my handbag! 

I found the cranberry almond bars to be chewy and savory.  Since the ingredients of the cranberry almond bars to be similar to the ingredients that I can eat on the DASH DIET  ( ).

All of the bars are permitted on my Dash Diet and Lifestyle plan.
This is very important in my meal plan and to my doctor!

Special K Nourish™ Dark Chocolate Nut Delight Nutrition Bars boast a unique multi-grain blend with superfoods like quinoa, oats, wheat and barley, combined with dark chocolate, almonds, peanuts, and cashews. Each bar is crunchy, sweet and a good source of fiber* and protein. My husband ate most of this bar and gave me a taste so that I could get his opinion of the bar!  He said that he would like to buy more of these bars and substitute them for the dark chocolate bars that are in the pantry.

If If I can afford it, I will put these in the children's trick or treat bags for Halloween.  I will put a note in each baggie containing the bar, telling the parents just how good they are for them and their children! I really don't like giving candy for Halloween to the children because it's not good for them.  So I will think about this for their treat.
