Newman's Own Organics Review and Giveaway #noopl


I got the best box of goodies the other day.  Some I kept for myself and some I shared around.  So this review is going to contain opinions of family and friends as well as my own which means lots more palates and a more thorough positive on Newman's Own Organics!

In our box there were chocolate bars, chocolate cups(peanut butter, caramel, raspberry, and mint), pretzels, all kinds of cookies, and dried fruit.  One bag of a dried medley, one bag of apples, and a b of raisins.  Those will be featured soon in some recipes as I love cooking with dried fruit!  Yum!

Now I hid away the chocolate.  Yes I'm a chocoholic and do not share well with others.  Shh I still have a bit hidden away so I can't tell you where, but this stuff is good!

So of course the first thing I tried were the dark chocolate mint cups because I'm a chocolate and mint lover and my main weakness is dark chocolate and mint together.  All I can say is heaven.  Pure bliss.  I'm an seeing more of these in my near future.  Now to find that stash of money that can be used for purchasing these yummy treats and hiding in random spots in the freezer so the kids have no clue they are there. . . . please tell me I'm not the only one that  does that!


Next I tried out the orange dark chocolate bar.  I've talked to several people before and they all wrinkle their nose at orange and chocolate mixed together, but I've been eating it for years.  It's something my cousins in England always sent over for us at Christmas time.  It's very popular there and very popular in my family.  Maybe it has something to do with my grandma being a WWII war bride from England, but it is a hit for us. I had a friend try a bite of mine(after she'd hemmed and hawwed to try to get out of it thinking she wouldn't like it) and guess what?!  She liked it!  Oh yeah it's good.  It's really good and everything should pick up a bar.  I hate waxy chocolate and love that Newman's chocolates are not waxy.  They taste like chocolate which is the way chocolate should taste.

Signature Series Chocolate

Now for the rest of the box.  I didn't get to try the rest of the stuff as it wasn't gluten free, but as you may have seen before around here there are plenty of taste testers willing to test out wheat products.  My husband still eats them and these were great things to send with him to munch on.  He recently had a Civil War reenactment so he took the box along.  I was up there for the day while they were munching along and asked what they thought.

It was unanimous that the Newman's Own Organics Newman's O's were better than the popular brand(oops shall I say it. . . why not they were better than Oreo's)!!  Oh yeah they get rave reviews!  Included in our box were original, peanut butter, and vanilla creme.  I have to say I was sad I didn't get to try the peanut butter ones because those were always my favorite oreo's.  I do notice on their website they have a dairy and wheat free version of the original so I may have to check those out!!

There were also several different bags of pretzels and two kinds of hermit cookies, gingersnaps, chocolate oatmeal cookies, orange chocolate chip cookies, and two kinds of animal crackers.  I'm telling you, this box was loaded to the max!

Of course, everyone was thinking they wouldn't like the chocolate orange ones. . . . but guess what?!  Again they were loved!  Seriously, people need to believe me when I say chocolate and orange go together.  They do, really really well they do!

The pretzels were not as big of hit, though they liked them.  They said they were different than most of the pretzels they are used to and that they were hard.  Which makes me think that I would have liked them. Especially the honey whole wheat.  Before going gluten free honey whole wheat were my favorite!
