Newman's Own Organics Review and Giveaway 4/15




Newman's Own Organics
I love organic products and anything I can do to choose something healthier is right up there on my 'to do' list.  I've also been a fan of Newman's Own but when I found out about Newman's Own Organics, I was ready to check out the second generation of products.  I saw an episode of Martha Steward interviewing Nell and her fond memories of her father, actor Paul Newman.  It was intriguing to hear her talk about the business and how she got started and how her father influenced her.  Martha even shared in some of her favorite memories.


I received a very generous complimentary box of various Newman's Own Organics products to try.  There was something for everyone.  I gravitated towards the Orange Chocolate Chip cookies that had a nice orange fragrance but chocolate that was very rich and decadent.  You could not tell that there was anything different about these organic cookies except I thought they tasted better.  Each bite sized cookies are also perfect if you are watching your calorie intake given the size.   It's just enough to satisfy that chocolate craving but not overly big to indulge too much.  Five cookies were only 150 calories and as with all products, the ingredients are listed.   In case you were wondering, all of the Newman's Own Organics' product are certified organic by Oregon Tilth.

Certified organic by Oregon Tilth. Ingredients have been grown on farms that have not used artificial fertilizers or pesticides for three years or more. The farms and processors have been certified by an independent third party. Kosher certification by Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America, 333 Seventh Avenue, New York.



My girls were fans of the pretzels which had the perfect crunch factor and the pretzel taste that pretzel loves enjoy.  They also loved the Alphabet Chocolate Cookies.  They were powerful little chocolaty cookies that I love seeing my girls enjoy.  I'd much rather have them indulging in organic foods versus overly processed, preservative laden foods.  Fig Newmans are also a favorite of mine and they were light and fluffy with a robust fig taste inside.  The mints are fantastic and were light and packed the perfect punch.  Not overly strong but just right.  I will confess that I was not a fan of the Ginger Snaps but my husband was.  He took them along with the various flavors of Licorice on an Army trip yesterday and is fully enjoying all of them.  We both agree that there is nothing lacking with the organic version of each of the products we received.  My husband is anti-anything good for you so to hear that he actually enjoyed them, was a huge testimonial in the taste as he only like what is bad for you.  






Whether you made that switch to organics or not, Newman's Own Organics are the route to go.  With so many choices to choose from, they have all your snacking needs taken care of.  I hope to see more foods like entrees eventually.  The quality is exceptional along with the taste.


They also have pet food and organic coffee!

I have enjoyed Newman's Own pasta sauces and salsa for a while, now, and am happy to see more organic products added, especially as they're certified by a third party. A wonderful thing Mr. Newman started!
