A snack that tastes great and is guilt free? Almondina has just that! I was so excited when I learned about this company and all their high quailty products. This family run business makes all of their products right here in the USA. Read more to learn about their famous biscuts and new Toastees.

About Almondina:

"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."

Almondina's Tasty Treats:

Almondina Biscuts

I loved the Almondina gourmet cookie! It's a treat I can feel good about eating. At only 30 calories a biscuit...I can have a few. The cookie is crunchy and is perfect for a snack at any time of the day. I like to have a couple with my morning coffee and it also makes for a nice crunch over my favorite ice cream. Almondina biscuits come in so many flavors, you'll want to try them all.

Adagio Teas: Gourmet Teas

I have to say I LOVE tea. It's so relaxing and a get way to unwind. Since becoming pregnant I've had to cut back on my caffeine addiction. As a result I've been drinking more tea! I was so excited when Adagio Teas reached out to partner with Creative Me. They have so many products that make a tea lover delighted. Gourmet teas, teaware, pantry items...have really offer it all. 

About Adagio Teas:
"Adagio Teas was founded in 1999 with the aim of providing consumers with unmatched quality and variety of teas. We have become the most popular destination for tea online, and among the highest rated companies on BizRate and Epinions. Adagio was also singled out by Consumer Union as having the “most trustworthy” consumer practices. Our products are now available in many gourmet and health food stores."

My Adagio Teas Items:

I loved the layout of their site. It was so easy to navigate and find exactly what I needed. I will say it was hard to me to choose a tea! They have such a large variety I wanted to try it all.

I decided to purchase a pregnancy tea. This was my first tea I purchased that was made just for mamas to be. I love the design on the tin. It's great because it keeps the loose leaf tea fresh for longer with a tight seal on the box.

The tea itself has a light flavor. You will find flavor notes spearmint, fennel, rose hips, raspberry leaves, rooibos teas, and lemon verbena. The blends really brings a sense of calm when drinking it. The blend is caffeine free so need for me to worry about my daily caffeine intake. My favorite time to drink this tea is right before bed when I am ready to unwind.

Next, their honey collection looked too tasty not to try. This honey for your tea is perfect to pair with any variety of tea. It adds a naturally light and sweet flavor to any tea and comes in a glass container. The flavor of this honey really complimented my Great Expectations tea I purchased from Adagio Teas. I also purchased the pump to attached to the jar. I makes the use of honey so much easier! No mess!

I also bought a new teapot made of glassware. It's such a beautiful piece. It holds enough for two servings, making it perfect for when I have a guest over for chit chat and tea! The stainless steel infuser is large and lets the loose leaves really open and infuse to perfection. I was worried at first that the glass might be too fragile but when I got the teapot I saw how sturdy to is!

In my box I got several great samples to try. Samples are nice because you can test out teas that might be out of your routine go to teas.

Overall, I truly enjoyed all the products I received from Adagio Teas. They really have something for every tea lover. Whether you just started drinking teas or it's been your go to for years! Also the customer service they provide was exceptional. If you have a question, they have an answer. I recommend Adagio Teas for your tea purchase.
