The other day I received a huge package in the mail. And I mean 15 hulking pounds huge! I knew the Newman’s Own Organics people were going to send me some things to review, but I had no idea they were going to send me this much stuff!
THAT’S A LOT OF FOOD!
Obviously, I haven’t tried everything yet but here are some reviews of the items I’ve tried so far, plus some of the non-vegan items that my family tested. (I’ll let you know which ones aren’t vegan.) You can find nutritional information on all of these products on the Newman’s Own Organics website
Cinnamon Hermits: I was not a big fan of the chunky sugar crystals sprinkled on top and thought that some of them had way too many raisins/dried fruit. It was a little bit of an overload! On the pro side, however, I’m pretty sure this package included more cookies than the 12 that it was supposed to contain. Bonus cookies = always good! Also,Ipreferred these to the more distinctively flavored ginger version (below).
Ginger Hermits: I thought these were kind of fun.
I just loved these..
Cinnamon Sugar Soy Crisps: As I mentioned above, these taste very similar to what I remember rice cakes tasting like .... On their own these weren’t that fab—unless perhaps they will give you just that hint of sweet crunch that you’re craving—but I think that they would be good served with a dip or fruit salsa. Although I haven’t ever had it, you might try them with Kristen’s Cinnamon Delight Hemp Spread.
We were also sent 2 packages of Hermits and Fig Newmans. Hermits are a rich, chewy, spicy cookie sweetened with molasses. The Hermits are not overly sweet, but they are so rich one, or possibly 2 is filling and satisfying. They are different from a typical cookie, but my sons and I both loved these. The Fig Newmans are out of this world. This is another Newman's Own Organics product that I have purchased a couple of times as well especially for our travel trips. I also want to mention that the Fig Newmans have a Wheat Free/Dairy Free version for any of you who may have these sensitives.
Last, but certainly not least, we got to try out a variety of chocolates and mints! Newman's Own Organics Chocolate Bars are made with at least 95% certified organic ingredients. These chocolate bars knocked my socks off. They are so yummy! I'm a dark chocolate girl, so I especially enjoyed the darker blends. The Newman's Own Organics Mints have been a wonderful addition to my purse! I usually keep gum in my purse, but since I started eating healthy 5 months ago I eliminated the usage of artificial flavored chewing gums. These organic mints are a great replacement and are very tasty and refreshing.
We have really enjoyed getting to try out all of these fabulous Newman's Own Organics products! There are a few of the products I am especially hooked on now. I am excited because I saw on Newman's Own Organics Facebook page that they have new products coming out, Licorice Twists! I happened to be in Whole Foods the next day and checked just to see if they were out yet, but no, they aren't there yet. I'll be keeping my eye out on these.
