About Newman’s Own Organics: Newman’s Own Organics was established as a division of Newman’s Own in 1993, and became a separate company in late 2001. The sale of Newman’s Own Organics products generates money for the Newman’s Own Foundation to give away. Since 1982 Paul Newman and the Newman’s Own Foundation have donated more than $350 million dollars to educational and charitable organizations worldwide. Nell’s commitment to organic foods and sustainable agriculture led her to convince her father to let her establish an organic division of Newman’s Own. She won him over by creating a completely organic Thanksgiving dinner and then suggesting organic food products for the new Newman’s Own Organics’ line. “All of Newman’s Own Organics’ products are ones that Dad enjoyed, so we chose ones that he really loved,” states Nell.

I received products for free in hopes I would mention them on my blog. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated or persuaded by anyone to write this review.
About the food products: 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.
I am new to organic foods. Before I tested out these products I thought foods that are organic would have a dull taste and a bad, dry aftertaste. I have no idea why I thought that, but I did. Newman’s Own Organic has proven me wrong. Now I know organic foods are better for me AND they taste good too.
The cookies above are all amazing. The Newman O’s taste just as good as Oreo’s. They have original, chocolate and mint flavored. I personally liked the original the most. This is the first organic product I tried. With my prejudgement of getting a dry mouth and a bad aftertaste, I had my large glass of milk ready. Let’s just say I didn’t need the large glass of milk. I didn’t get a bad aftertaste or a dry mouth from these cookies. They tasted awesome. The Hermits were delicious as well, they were soft and chewy, they had a great consistency. I am a regular Newman’s Own Organic
cookie customer now. My family and I loved each and every one of the cookies above.
They sent some candy as well for my family and me to test out. My daughter and I are not dark chocolate people, we are more milk chocolate kind of people. Every now and then I would bring out one of the candies above and split is with my family and got everyone’s input. This drove them crazy, they kept wanting more. I often heard,” Mom, can you test another one now”. I had to hide my review products. lol
My daughter and I actually liked the dark chocolate bars. They didn’t taste bitter like other dark chocolate bars I have tried in the past. All the chocolate tasted amazing. No bad aftertaste!! The pleasant aftertaste stuck around for awhile. Which in my opinion is a great thing? The only product in the candy section my family and I didn’t go crazy about was the licorice. It was hard and not very sour. If you are wanting something sugary and chewy I would recommend it, as they only have 5 calories from fat in the whole package. My personal favorite out of all the product above is the wintergreen mints. They come in a nice metal tin and is packed with little round mints. I like to suck on my mints for a minute and then crunch it. They leave your breath nice and fresh. The Wintergreen isn’t overpowering. To me, it’s just right.
The pretzels are wonderful as well. They have a great texture and crunch to them. The cranberries and berry blend was fantastic. For breakfast, I added some to my corn flakes. They also taste great alone as a healthy treat. All of these products would be great to add to children’s lunch boxes.
Over View: My family and I enjoyed these organic products from Newman’s Own Organics. These products taste so good you wouldn’t think of them as being organic. The calories are way lower than other brands and you really wouldn’t know it by the taste of it. I can’t wait for the stores near me to start carrying them.
