Newman's Own Organics Review & Giveaway

I sub to email
I received a huge box full of Newman's Own Organics to review.  I am so excited to tell you all about this wonderful company.  Here's a little bit of information about them.


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. The partners anticipate adding a number of new items each year in all these areas. 
            Nell approached her father in 1992 about the possibility of an organic division. He offered to cover one year’s expenses for Nell and Peter to determine the feasibility of an organic product line under the Newman name. The one stipulation was that, once established, they would return the seed money, so that it could be added to his charity money. They not only managed to do this within a short period of time, but also became an independent company in early 2001. This had been the goal from the beginning. They are committed to following the philanthropic role of Paul Newman and bringing out products that he was proud to have his name associated with. 
            “Great tasting products that happen to be organic is our slogan,” says Nell. “It really says a lot about us. We’ve seen in recent years that people want to know more about the food they eat, not just how many calories a product contains. It’s becoming more important to them how ingredients are grown and processed on the way to their grocers' shelf. Once people see how much organic foods have improved since the early days of packaged `health' foods, we feel they'll seek them out.” 


Newman-O's

Newman O's
16 oz. package

No Trans-Fatty Acids

NEWMAN-O'S: MILK DUNKIN' GOOD
Cream Filled Chocolate Cookie Expands Organic Cookie Line

Nell Newman loves chocolate and can't go too long without dreaming up a new use for it. This time it's Newman-O's, a delicious addition to Newman's Own Organics' cookie line. "Dad's name has been in lights - and now it's on our cookies, too." states Nell. The cream filled chocolate delight is easily recognized by the distinctive package featuring "Pa" and Nell Newman in American Gothic dress and its accompanying courtly sentiments:






Ode to Newman-O's
You might, m'lady tweak my nose.
You could, m'lord step on my toes.
But Heaven help those poor bozos, who try to filch my Newman-O's. 






We tried the original, chocolate and peanut butter.  The original were our favorite, but then we also enjoyed the others.  My husband loved the peanut butter.  My brother loved the chocolate.  These cookies are amazing.  They are so good.

The chocolate bars will be available in two sizes: 3.25-ounce and 2.25-ounce, in the following flavors:

  • Dark Chocolate
  • Super Dark Chocolate 70% Cocoa - NEW!
  • Mocha Milk Chocolate - NEW!
  • Milk Chocolate
  • Espresso Dark Chocolate
  • Orange Dark Chocolate

Signature Series Chocolate
We received all six of the chocolate bars.  They did not disappoint.  I love chocolate so I was very excited to try this.  My favorite was the espresso dark chocolate.  The flavor was rich and creamy and dark.  I really enjoyed all of these chocolate bars.  They were a huge hit in our house!

Organic mints in four flavors have been added to Newman's Own Organics' product line. The Cinnamon, Ginger, Peppermint and Wintergreen varieties are packed in eye-catching 1.76 ounce tins with colorful cover designs designating their flavor. They carry the USDA organic seal on the back ingredient panel.
"This is the first time we haven't used our familiar American Gothic style logo on the packaging," says Nell Newman, who appears in the logo with "Pa" Newman. "We were delighted with the illustrations for the tins and thought they'd be fun to use for other purposes after the mints are eaten. The inner paper does carry the familiar logo."
The same flavors are available in a convenient pocket size .75 oz roll and a four roll multi-pack bag with the familiar logo of Nell and "Pa" Newman and are perfect for a quick pick-me-up whether at home, work, or school.
All flavors in both the tins and rolls are made from organic sugar, organic corn syrup, gum arabic and natural flavors. Three pieces (2.0g) contain ten calories with 2g of sugar and no total fat, sodium or protein.

 The mints were good.  I liked the cinnamon the best.  I am not a big mint user so I passed these along to my mother who loves mints and she was so excited that they were made with organic ingredients.  


Hermits

Newman’s Own Organics has added Hermits, an old-fashioned soft cookie, to its popular cookie line. The cookies are available in three flavors: Original, Cinnamon, and Ginger.
The 9 oz. package with the familiar Nell and “Pa” Newman logo contain twelve cookies.
       “Hermits were a family favorite when I was growing up,” say Nell Newman, co-founder and president of the company. “Our recipe, which is based on one we used to make at home, is filled with our delicious organic raisins and sweetened with organic molasses. These spicy, chewy cookies are said to have originated in Colonial New England. One theory is that hermits were named for their long keeping qualities—better when hidden away like a hermit for several days. I doubt if these will last long enough to hide.”
            
The hermits were a huge hit with my husband.  I am not a fan of these, but my husband loves them.  We also shared with our neighbors and they really enjoyed them as well.  I think I just don't care for molasses.  My parents really loved these.  My dad wanted them all for himself.
Dried Fruit Packages Dried Fruit Packages
Raisin Packages
Coffee
Newman's Own Organics® introduces 3 new items to our line of organic dried fruits! In addition to our current stars Raisins, Cranberries, and Pitted Prunes, we now have Apples, Apricots and a Berry Blend. The dried fruit line is 100% organic and contains no sulfites. "We are proud to partner with U.S. Certified Organic Farmers and Processors whose commitment to organic practices makes these wonderful dried fruits available to you. Purchasing our organic products supports their efforts," states Nell Newman, Co-founder and President of Newman's Own Organics.
Dried fruits have gone beyond their traditional roles and are now replacing high-fat, high-sugar snacks and drinks. Prunes, once thought of only for the older set, are being touted for their high antioxidant qualities; second only to blueberries. Raisins, always a treat, have made the leap from the lunch box and oven to trail mix, granola, and other mixed snacks. Cranberries are not just for holiday sauce anymore. They add zip to fruit salads and stuffings, are tossed into mixed snacks, are baked into muffins, breads, and cookies, or, like the others, are perfect for eating alone. Apricots are a healthy, delicious treat right out of the package. Or, try adding them to yogurt, cereal, salad, or desserts. All can be used to add a special flavor to today's ethnic recipes and family favorites, as well as continuing to be a staple for bakers.

We tried the dried apples.  These were really good.  Not too dry, just the right amount of flavor.  I really enjoyed these.





Newman's Own Organics Adds Winner With Champion Chip Cookies
Chocolate chip cookies are a Newman family favorite. Since Nell grew up making and eating them, it was natural that they would become a very popular cookie for us.
Champion Chip Cookies are available in six tasty flavors:
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Espresso Chocolate Chip
  • Orange Chocolate Chip
  • Double Chocolate Mint Chip
  • Chocolate Chocolate Chip
We loved all of these, we got them all to try and they were so good.  They didn't last long in our house.  They were great with coffee or tea or even milk.
Samantha got to review the dog biscuits.   She was so excited to be included in this review.  She loves to eat.  I give her 2 or 3 biscuits when we go on walks.  She loved the Newman's Own Organics biscuits and I felt good about them for her.
