Did you know that Newman’s Own Organics is a separate company from Newman’s Own? I did not until very recently. Newman’s Own Organics was started by Paul Newman’s daughter Nell, and her business partner Peter Meehan in 1993. The company started out with pretzels, added chocolate in 1995, and then cookies came into the mix. Now there is a wide variety of snack foods, balsamic vinegar and olive oil, organic coffee and pet foods. I was lucky enough to try a selection of their snack foods, which I am sharing with you today.
The first is the amazingly delicious Newman-O’s. These are creme filled chocolate cookies and they come in six different varieties. We tried the Hint O’ Mint and also the Peanut Butter, and they were awesome. These did not last long in my house at all. The chocolate cookie was just the right amount of chocolate, and the creme fillings were mouth watering. I don’t know how else to explain how good these were. If you combine chocolate and peanut butter or chocolate and mint, it is hard to go wrong in my book! These will definitely be entering our snack food rotation again…soon!
The next snack that we tried were the Chocolate Alphabet Cookies. These are a great snack, and a great way to work on letters with the kids! After rest time, my two kids will choose 2 cookies each. Then they would look at the letter, tell me the letter, and a word that starts with the letter. OK, mainly Emma did this. Jack only wanted O’s, and he never came up with any words 🙂 Overall, a great game to play, and they were still getting something that they really enjoyed eating as well.
Finally we tried the Mighty Pretzel Minis. My husband declared these were his new addiction…which is good since we were out of all the chocolate cookies 🙂 They were a perfect snack with some dried fruit for the kids as well. Something that we could easily bring out with us that wouldn’t make a mess. There is a hint of salt, but not overpowering, which is nice in a pretzel. They were crunchy and delicious!
