Newman's Own Organics Review and Giveaway

Everyone loves to snack, including myself. When I first started learning about organic food and changing over the food in my kitchen, Newman's Own Organics was one of the first companies I tried out. So, I am very excited to introduce you to them today!


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. What started with pretzels and grew to include other snack foods has now expanded to many other organic items: coffee, tea, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, organic dried fruit, and pet food.


Newman’s Own Organics' products meet all the requirements of the USDA’s National Organic Program. Ingredients have been grown on farms that have not used artificial fertilizers or pesticides for three years or more. The farms and processors have also met the USDA’s organic standards.

"Great tasting food that happens to be organic," is the slogan of the company, and I can attest to their slogan being very true!
 
My all time favorite product of Newman's Own Organics is their chocolate bar. Since I am a major chocolate lover, I am always on the lookout for organic chocolates. Being a frugal mom, I am also looking for organic chocolate that we can afford. Their chocolates meet both criteria. They come in flavors like dark chocolate, super dark chocolate, mocha milk chocolate, espresso dark chocolate, milk chocolate and orange dark chocolate. Yummm!
 
I also love their Alphabet cookies! They are tasty and crunchy, and I love that the list of ingredients is quite short. One thing that sets these cookies apart is that they use organic palm fruit oil, which is different than a lot of other companies.


Organic palm fruit oil:


Is extracted from the palm's fruit not the palm's kernel.
It is not hydrogenated.
Contains no trans-fatty acids.
Is lower in saturated fat than butter and has no cholesterol.
Can be grown organically in tropical regions.


At only three grams of fat per serving, I can't help but love these cookies. They come in three flavors - Chocolate, Arrowroot, and Cinnamon Graham. You can feel good sharing these cookies with your children too, knowing you are not giving them a bunch of icky chemicals and preservatives.


Of course, I also love the Fig Newmans. They are the organic version of Fig Newtons, only better! Fig Newmans are available in fat free, low fat, and wheat-free/dairy free varieties.


Am I making your mouth water yet??


I have one more product of theirs that I have to highlight - Soy Crisps. Soy Crisps are a new addition to their snack food line. Gluten free, they are made with organic soy and organic rice. The Crisps come in four varieties: Cinnamon Sugar, White Cheddar, Lightly Salted, and Barbecue, and have between 7 and 9 grams of protein depending on the variety. My favorite was either the Barbecue or Lightly Salted.


Besides the snacks I mentioned, Newman's Own Organics also has several varieties of Pretzels, Champion Chip Cookies, Newman-O's, Dried Fruit, Mints, and Hermits. All of these are very tasty! Trust me, you won't even know they are that much healthier for you! You will be too busy enjoying every bite!

Newman's Own Organics are sold in retailers all over the country. Click here to find the store nearest you.

For (1) lucky reader of mine, we are giving away all (4) of the products I have highlighted today - Organic Chocolate Bars, Organic Alphabet Cookies, Organic Fig Newmans and Organic Soy Crisps. Yum, Yum, Yum!!
