Nonni's Thin Addictives

On a scale of 1 - 10 I rate this product a 100!

I've found my new favorite snack. I love almonds and pistachios but when I saw these little Biscotti style 'cookies' I had my doubts.  The almonds I've eaten in Biscotti before but never pistachios.  I've also never eaten almonds and pistachios together.  And with the unmistakable 'nip' that comes from pistachios I just couldn't see the combination working.  BUT... they were on sale buy one get one free and that was a sale I couldn't pass up, especially when I could buy just 1 and get it for half price.  That turned out to be a really big mistake.

I decided to give these new cookies a try so as soon as I got home I opened the box.  Inside there are 6 packets with 3 Biscotti in each.  I took my 1st bite.  OMGoodness!  They are delicious and I only bought 1 box.  Well, the next day I went back for more.  They had ONE box left.  I bought it and also got a rain check to buy more.  I have now been to 2 of the grocery store locations and they were both out so I guess I'll have to wait until the sale goes off and hope they restock.

There are other flavors that I fully intend to try.  They come in Cranberry Almond, Cinnamon Raisin Almond, Blueberry Oat Almond, Banana Dark Chocolate Almond, Mango Coconut Almond, and of course the Pistachio Almond.  Oh Yeah, did I tell you that there are only 100 calories in each pack?  The sugar is 5 g and the sodium is 65 mg.  Not too bad for some really tasty treats.
