Newman's Own Organics Review and Giveaway!!!

*THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED*


Let's face it, we all love a little snack food now and then. Wouldn't you agree that if you are going to feed your family snacks that these foods should be organic and as "healthy" as possible?

Newman's Own Organics offers a wide selection of yummy snack and treats that are made from the highest quality organic ingredients. You'll find tasty Pretzels, Chocolate Bars, Fig Newmans, Champion Chip Cookies, Chocolate Cups, Newman-O's, Pop's Corn, Alphabet Cookies , Olive Oil & Balsamic Vinegar, Dried Fruit , Soy Crisps, Hermits, Mints, Coffee and Royal Tea and more!

I was sent a HUGE box of goodies for my family to try out. You can imagine the excitement from my children when they saw all the cookies! I am not a baker, so this was a real treat for them.

I let my children pick something to try right away. My 9 year old son chose the original flavor Newman's O's. These are much like Oreos, except made with with ingredients you can feel good about....Organic Unbleached Wheat Flour, Organic Sugar, Organic Palm Fruit Oil, etc. There is not one thing in the ingredients that I have to question what it is or how it is going to be harmful.

The taste test: these cookies are WONDERFUL! Every bit as good as an Oreo, very flavorful. My personal favorite is the Newman's O's Hint of Mint flavor. YUM.
I gave my 2 year old some of the Arrowroot Organic Alphabet Cookies. He loved them and stuffed his face. These are similar in taste in Animal Crackers but as like the Newman's O's contain healthy ingredients such as Organic Palm Fruit Oil.

What is Organic Palm Fruit Oil?

Organic Palm Fruit Oil is a non-hydrogenated oil, free of trans-fatty acids, is lower in saturated fat than butter, has no cholesterol, and contains antioxidants, including vitamin E.

My daughter chose the Barbeque flavored Soy Crisps as her snack (she ate a cookie too!). The Soy Crisps are a great alternative to rice cakes. They are low in fat but high in protein (7 grams per serving), making them a great snack for dieters as well as the whole family! They are also Gluten Free.

We have been equally impressed with the other Newman's Own Organic foods we have tried. All the cookies have been delicious. I love the mints, they come in 4 flavors Cinnamon, Ginger, Peppermint and Wintergreen and all taste wonderful. I like that they come in 1.76 ounce tins that can fit easily in my purse. Another one of my favorites is the dried fruit. Dried fruit always makes a nice snack and is great added to recipes, mixed with yogurt, or added to trail mix.

I'm such a huge fan of Paul Newman. I was pleased as punch when he first started Newman's Own because it really showed what a great humanitarian he was. But I'm astounded to learn that they have given over $200 million to thousands of charities worldwide since 1982. That's amazing! And probably a little miraculous to those charities that received his donations. I'm so proud!

Yeah:

Do you use slave labor in producing your chocolate?
We have confirmed in writing that the cocoa products we purchase have been produced on farms that treat their workers fairly, and pay them a fair wage. Our suppliers do not and will not support any farms or plantations that mistreat children and adults or engage in �Slave Trade Practices�. '

From their facts page..."The front of each product features an American Gothic "Pa" Newman and daughter Nell in appropriate costume with an accompanying legend on the package; each variety has a color band or colored packaging for easy identification." I always wondered who was the woman in the pic. Oh, and I LOVE their dried cranberries! delicious.
