Review: Nonni's - Thinaddictives Almond Thins

Nonni's Thinaddictives are twice-baked almond thin cookies. Basically they're like biscotti but thinner. They sent me Banana Dark Chocolate and Blueberry Oat flavors to try.

It's normally $3.29 for a 4.44-oz box with 6 packages of 3 cookies each.

The way these look, I'd have to guess they make a small bread-like loaf (about half the size of biscotti), slice it thin and then bake it again until it's crunchy.

Both have a hard crunchiness to them like biscotti but seem to be just slightly more dense.

Banana Dark Chocolate is interspersed with dried banana chips, almonds, and dark chocolate. It tastes like eating a banana nut muffin but in biscotti form (i.e. it's drier and crunchier). It's just lightly sweetened and the dark chocolate adds a nice bit of rich flavor to go with the banana chips.

Blueberry Oat features a combination of dried blueberries and blueberry-infused cranberries, rolled oats, and almonds. It tastes like blueberry oatmeal except drier and crunchier (surprise, right?). Like the banana version, it's lightly sweetened and pretty good.

Look it's a Buffalo Quarter! It's coming right for us! Banana up top; Blueberry below.
Overall, Nonni's Thinaddictives Almond Thins are pretty good, especially if you like biscotti (because they're pretty much the same). I especially liked that the almonds, blueberries, chocolate, etc. that they put in came in good-sized chunks. I'd definitely go for them over similar breakfast biscuits but they won't keep you as full (they are meant for snacking anyway).
