Newman’s Own Organics Snacks (Review & Giveaway)

Keeping a variety of healthy snacks and treats in the house is essential for any family, especially when you have children.  In addition to fresh fruits and yogurt, pretzels, popcorn and cookies are among our household favorites. Newman’s Own Organics has a great selection of organic snacks to satisfy even the most finicky eater!

 

My family recently received a box full of organic goodies from Newman's Own Organics and I must say that I was impressed!  Not only was I surprised at the amount of healthy snacks they sent us, I was also surprised at their great variety and assortment of organic snacks and treats they offer.

'Organic' will be the last thing you think of when you try Newman’s Own Organics tasty Pretzels, Chocolate Bars, Cookies, Chocolate Cups, Pop's Corn,  Dried Fruit, Mints and Licorice. They're just so good!

 

A few of our personal favorites include:  

  • Spelt Pretzels
  • Pomegranate Licorice
  • Chocolate Chip Famous Recipe Cookies
  • Newman-O's Hint O' Mint Cream Filled Cookies
 
My kids loved the pretzels and licorice.  My husband's favorite were the chocolate chip cookies, and even though I liked them all, I'm going to have to give my vote to the hint o' mint cream filled cookies!

The pretzels were crunchy and flavorful.  Not too salty, they had the perfect amount!  Both of my kids had them for their morning snacks at school for an entire week.  They enjoyed them plain as well as with peanut butter for dipping!

The licorice was soft and sweet.  The flavors were bold, unique and mouth-watering!  I was a little worried about the sour licorice being to bitter, but it was the perfect combination of sweet and sour!

Cookies have always been one of my favorite desserts, especially those that you can take apart.  I love cream filled cookies because you can twist them apart and enjoy the cookie and cream separately - or together! You simply can't go wrong with cookies.... am I right?  Chocolate chip cookies and minty cream filled cookies make for a sweet treat and the perfect dessert.  Whether you like your cookies alone or dunked - you're going to love them!

 

About Newman’s Own: 

When Nell Newman and business partner Peter Meehan started Newman’s Own® Organics: The Second Generation® in 1993, they were sure there was a market for organic snack foods, but they couldn’t have anticipated just how fast the demand for their products would grow.They started with pretzels and grew to include other snack foods and has now expanded to many other organic items: coffee, tea, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, organic dried fruit, and pet food.

Newman's Own Organics was established as a division of Newman's Own in 1993, and became a separate company in late 2001. The sale of Newman's Own Organics products generates money for the Newman's Own Foundation to give away. Since 1982 Paul Newman and the Newman's Own Foundation have donated more than $350 million dollars to educational and charitable organizations worldwide."
