**Newmans Own Organics**Review GIVEAWAY!!
It's easy to confuse Newman's Own and Newman's Own Organics products. NOO started as a division of Newman's Own in 1993 by Nell Newman and her business partner, Peter Meehan, but became a separate company in early 2001. The two companies have separate lines of products.
I recently received the opportunity to review some products exclusive to Newmans Own Organics and was completely surprised by the quality and taste. Not that I thought that anything was wrong with the company BUT low fat, fat free, wheat/dairy free is mentioned in some of these fantastic products and I would have thought to myself, minus this or that, minus the taste but was I WRONG!! WOW!! I have found my new friend and snack and I can feel better about my kids eating something that is better for them.
I've got to say these Newman's Own Organic O's are some excellent cookies and honestly by the look of them you would compare them to other brands BUT don't let looks deceive you. These are fabulous each flavor is distinct and very flavorful, the cookie is crunchy not soft and the filling is right on point. The "hint o' mint" were definitely my favorite it was nice and minty had no clue in taste that these were organic without all the added products other companies offer. My kids, on the other hand, liked all BUT the mint and that was fine for me because now I could claim and not have to share:) Little "T" enjoyed the original she is more of a simpler kind of girl, "E" liked the original and the Vanilla and "J" enjoyed the Peanut Butter(that's more his thing). The Fig Newmans were very good, I really liked them when I needed something that was not crunchy, these were soft and moist..GREAT taste and very satisfying for a snack.**fat free,low fat, wheat/dairy free**
Newman's Own Organics has made a commitment with the launch of our new chocolate bars and cups to pay a premium above and beyond the current market price for Certified Organic Cocoa Beans that is tied to the Fair Trade market price of Organic Cocoa Beans.
These are Newman's Own Organic Milk Chocolate Caramel cups and let me tell you these are so good and the perfect treat for after the kids go to bed(and I don't have to share) :) I opened the package to find 3 bite size cups of chocolate-caramel goodness. The chocolate was perfectly flavored and the caramel was smooth and creamy, when you bite into the cup you see the creaminess of the caramel oozing out. This is definitely a keeper in my house!! So good!! They carry the USDA seal and the Rainforest Allegiance Certification.
There was so many yummy things in my box and if I was to post all of them now this would be a LONG post so I'm going to give you my number 3 favorite. Trust me, not for any reason other than the fact I LOVE dried fruit..its my weakness!!
Whether it be dried apples, apricots, strawberries whatever I just enjoy snacking on them after I put the kids to bed. So many times a product that has dried fruit has so many additives but this one does not, I mean come on, if it has added sugar how can it be healthy?? I had the opportunity to try the Newman's Own Organic Apples, let me tell you tastes just like a fresh apple off the tree. It is chewy not crunchy, the flavor is ideal and the best part it contains no sulfates.
Now talking about nice chewy candy with a bit of tartness, this is for you!! I like licorice and enjoy it now and again, but with kids in my house it does not last long nor did these. These Newman's Own Organic Licorice come in sour and original and they are sure to please, the sugar and sour crystals are derived from natural sources.
The kids loved these, as they are a little more chewy than regular licorice and last a bit longer. The flavors are so natural and they come in a variety of flavors and all the kids gave these a thumbs up.These are low in fat, sodium and cholesterol free.
The Newman's Own Organic Alphabet cookies are a smaller version of cookies for little hands to hold and carry. My kids liked the alphabet cookies as it was fun playing with their food they could spell words or just be silly and make up words. My kids had the chance to sample the chocolate chip and the chocolate, I really could not get a straight answer on which was better. They are perfect to pack and take along, they don't melt and they are perfect size to not spoil an appetite.
Do you enjoy popcorn?? Well Newman's Own Organics carries that as well, I know they carry a bunch of things!! Any snack item I could imagine I was able to try and the Pop's Corn was a favorite of mine and a friend who ate it while watching movies at home(kids asleep).No oils, no transfat and 3 different flavors, this definitely a must have for a family movie night. Like all of Newman's Own Organics products, Pop's Corn has been certified organic by Oregon Tilth.
Newman's Own Organics carries a great line of mints in cinnamon, ginger, peppermint and wintergreen :
They do come in rolls as well as tins, I have no preference but the tins are very eye catching and can be used for a dual purpose:)
All flavors in both the tins and rolls are made from organic sugar, organic corn syrup, gum arabic and natural flavors. Three pieces (2.0g) contain ten calories with 2g of sugar and no total fat, sodium or protein.
So what is preventing you from looking for these wonderful, healthy snacks in store? Its real simple click <HERE> and find a retailer near you.
