I was given the chance to review Newman's Own Organics and I have to say that it's some of the best goodies I've ever tasted to be natural and a lot of it was low-fat! As someone who is on a health challenge I think these would be a great thing to have put back when you are having a sweet tooth! My family & I really enjoyed ourselves on this. My father-in-law remembers watching 'Pa Newman' in movies and when he seen the packaging I guess it brought back memories for him.
I'll break down the products & how they tasted.
Here are the Newman-O's which I received in Creme Filled Chocolate, Creme Filled Ginger, and Creme Filled Mint Chocolate.
The Creme Filled Chocolate are way better than Oreos! The cookie tasted a lot different to me almost more home-made than anything. All of the food did.
The Ginger Cookies you could taste the rich ginger and spice in them and that's one thing I go for in my sweets is spice!
The Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies oh we put those babies in the fridge to get them cold then ate them all pretty much in one night! They remind me of those girl-scout thin mints, but I loved these a lot better because they are bigger and you get more than a little measly box.
These are the Alphabet Cookies in Cinnamon Graham, Chocolate Chip, and Double Chocolate Chip!
My husband picked these off before I could even get to taste them so I'm going to say that these were famous in our household and he gives them two thumbs up! He's a chocolate junkie so the double chocolate chips apparently made his eyes as big as saucers. He said those were the best little cookies he's ate in a long time.
These are the Newman's Own Fig Newmans
These were thick little figs to be Fat Free! We always put stuff like this in the fridge to make them super cold because we think it tastes better and after picking through a lot of the stuff we reached for these in the middle of the night when we craved something sweet. These really hit the spot and they are delightful.
These are the Newman's Own Organic Mints in HOT, Ginger, Peppermints, and Wintergreen Mints.
The Hot Mints were my favorite so I hogged those and stuck them in my purse. They aren't so hot that they burn your tongue off, but they are quite spicy and good.
The Ginger Mints we all tried and we just weren't fans of because of the ginger taste was quite strong which was odd because we loved the ginger cookies, but for our mints we like them either hot or cool.
The Peppermints were refreshing and cool. They are great when you need to freshen your breath or are out and maybe you are feeling a little hungry and you want a candy fix.
The Wintergreen is another favorite in my family as they all wanted a piece of the WINTERGREEN! They love that flavor.
I have to say the packaging on these are so detailed and cute!
These are the Ginger Hermit Soft Cookies
I loved these they have raisins in them and I heated mine up a bit in the microwave to make them just a little bit warm. We sat many nights eating these and watching the Andy Griffith Show!
These are the Newman's Own I guess you would say Dehydrated Prunes and Apples I believe.
I love stuff like this. I love dried apples they are so good and so good for you as well as prunes! They are sealed so fresh when you open them it's like they were freshly done. I know many of times I've bought dehydrated apples and they've tasted horrible. These actually taste like the ones my friend used to make years ago. I loved both the prunes and the apples! My family on the other hand don't like a lot of fruity things like me. That's okay more for me!
These are the Newman's Own Organic Sour Licorice and Regular Licorice.
The Sour Licorice was in Strawberry, Apple, Mango, and Cherry - These are not overly sour which is what I loved about them. They are slightly sour with more of a sweet taste.
The Original Pomegranate, Strawberry, and Black Licorice- The Pomegranate and Strawberry were my favorites! Out of both the Sour and The Original they both taste like they have actual fruit juice in them which to me they are the best licorice I've ever tasted. I've tasted quite a lot of licorice because they were my go to sweets, but mostly all have tasted like the plastic they were packaged in. Not these! These were juicy and soft to chew. We didn't eat all of the Black because we just don't have the taste for Black licorice, but I bet if you love that flavor this one will probably be the best you've ever tried!
This is Newman's Own Organic Dark Chocolate
A recent study has shown that Dark Chocolate is actually good for you and good this was. I actually prefer Dark Chocolate over Milk Chocolate. I think because the Dark gives off more of a natural coco type of taste. It was surprisingly softer for Dark Chocolate as it's sometimes a little harder than Milk, but it was very good we all split it.
These are the Newman's Own Organic Peanut Butter & Caramel Cups
These were so cute and the packaging inside the way they are wrapped are way better than other brands because it actually has a cup holder to hold the cups in place and they are less likely to melt together. My husband loves peanut butter cups so I let him and his Dad eat those and they pretty much fought over the other pack of Caramel because they liked the Peanut butter so well.
These are the Newman's Own Organic Honey Wheat Pretzel Minis, Salted Pretzel Sticks, and Unsalted Pretzel Sticks.
The Honey Wheat I knew would be good because I love honey! They were just the right amount of sweetness.
The Salted Pretzels those are a lot larger and I dipped those in a spicy cheese dip and I loved them so much! I have low blood pressure and I sometimes have to eat salt which I'm not a big fan of, but these helped me get through having to put a downpour of salt on potatoes and other things.
The Unsalted Pretzels are good for those people out there who aren't able to have salt, but honestly you can't tell when you are eating them because they taste good. You figure when you hear unsalted it must not be good, but that's not always the case and it wasn't the case with these. My whole family eat on these for days!
