"True health care reform begins in our kitchens not in Washington"~ Anonymous
As you all know I am huge on eating organic as well as being eco-conscious! Both really go hand and hand more than many of you think. I am always looking for better alternatives for my children as their tastes change and mature. My kids are like typical kids they love chicken nuggets, french fries, Chocolate and McDonalds and we do allow them these luxuries but we do make sure that we are making health conscious decisions as much as we can. When I found Newman's Own Organics (The Second Generation) I was pretty excited about the products they offered. Even with the popularity of organic eating it is still hard to find affordable and well tasting luxuries like licorice or cookies. For my review they sent me a full line of products to try and review which at first seemed it would take forever to get through each product and taste test but thank goodness for family it was done pretty quickly.
Newman's Own Organics offers several different types of cookies, licorice, candy, chocolate, pretzels, and dried fruits! All of which were beyond my expectations in terms of flavor! I am a huge snacker because it seems like I am always on the go and I rarely have time to sit down for a proper breakfast or lunch which is so bad for me!! I found a new on the go favorite with Newman's Own Organics Berry Blend Dried Fruit. I grab it and have it when I need it! The blend is made up of dried cranberries, blueberries, & Cherries and of course sweetened with organic sugar! It is so yummy!
My children's favorite is, of course, the large selection of cookies that they offer! My children's favorite of all the cookies were the Hint O' Mint Newman O's and I can see why they are just the right amount of chocolate and mint mixed together!! My favorite cookies were the Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip from their Family Recipe collection! SO GOOD! Each one made with only the best organic ingredients! It's so nice to have my daughter hand me a package and actually able to read the ingredients!
My husbands favorites were the Ginger mints and the the Ginger Snap Cookies from the Family Recipe Collection. I am not a huge ginger person so I could not relate but my in-laws were oh so happy to review them and found them amazing! Despite all of us having our favorites nothing was dislike except the dried apricots- which we had to have one thing that someone didn't like. Even the black licorice found a home with my in-laws who raved about how great they were! My nieces loved the candy bars and I don't blame them they were spectacular!!!
