Review: Twin Dragon - Almond Cookies

These might seem like an international item but Twin Dragon Almond Cookies are made here in the States.

Normally they have half an almond affixed to the top of the cookie but I found these with diced almonds on the cheap for $1.09 for an 8-ounce box (compared to $2.99 for a 16-ounce box of the ones with almonds on top).

I most remember these because back in 4th grade, my teacher had us sell these with four (or was it five?) cookies in a small zip lock bag to raise money for a field trip.
Twin Dragon Almond Cookies come in a nice golden color and feature a crumbly cookie of medium hardness infused with the taste of almonds (as well as actual almonds). They're more subtle in flavor which makes them go with tea better than other more stronger flavored cookies (I've never actually eaten them with tea however).
I like these cookies. They bring the flavor of a Chinese bakery cookie home in a convenient package. Plus I like almonds.

  1. I have a lot of Asian supermarkets in my area where I can get them. They might also be available in one of the chain supermarkets in the Asian foods aisle.
