I know this month is centering on Get Out and Get Active, so I want to include some great snacks to take with you when you head out the door. Ready to go walking, to the park, out to play with the children... Grab some of the Newman's Own Organics foods. We chose four of their products that will be included in a giveaway, but let me tell you, it was a hard choice.
My husband chose their Chocolate Bars. He especially liked the Dark Chocolate. I do have to admit that dark chocolate has always been his favorite, but he is sold on Newman's Own Organics. Hearing my husband rave about a candy bar is definitely unusual. He said they were fresh, with a unique taste.
My sons chose the Licorice Twists. They come in Black, Strawberry, Pomegranate and Tangerine, but his favorite was the Strawberry. And the best part about it is they are organic! And he still loved them. On our trip out west he ate one whole package by himself! Toss a 5 0z package in your purse, backpack, tote bag, whatever and head out with a snack that is great tasting and good for you too!
My oldest daughters, and my husband really enjoyed the Chocolate Cups. It was a toss up between the Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cups and the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. I think we actually had fights over these!
Here is a sample of the ingredients:
Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups: Organic Dark Chocolate (Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic Chocolate Liquor*, Organic Cocoa Butter*, Organic Soy Lecithin [an emulsifier], Organic Vanilla), Creamy Peanut Butter, Organic Yogurt Coating (Organic Sugar [evaporated cane juice] Organic Palm Kernel Oil, Organic Nonfat Yogurt [Milk], Lactic Acid, Organic Soy Lecithin[an emulsifier], Salt and Organic Vanilla), Palm Kernel Oil, Peanut Flour, Salt.
When it comes to cookies, Newman's Own Organics holds their own. You should try their Champion Chip Cookies. We all enjoyed the Chocolate Chocolate Chip, and the Double Chocolate Mint Chip. I think the children preferred the Chocolate Chocolate Chip. I think they get that from their father!
Here is what they have to say about these cookies:
"With our line of organic chocolate bars, we already had the source for the chocolate," states Nell. "The next step was developing the right recipe for a terrific tasting cookie. In searching for a way to have the highest percentage of organic ingredients possible without compromising the taste, we found the perfect answer in organic palm fruit oil. We were able to take out a non-organic ingredient, conventional butter, and replace it with an organic ingredient, palm fruit oil, and produce a wonderful cookie with no hydrogenated oils."
I am really impressed with the quality of the Newman's Own Organics food products. These would make excellent snacks as you Get Out and Get Active! Make sure you check out their page on What's Organic?
