Back 2 School Blog Hop - Day 3 - Newman's Own Organics Review & Giveaway

Check it Out!  Not too long ago I got an amazing package from Newman's Own Organics that had an awesome assortment of products in it.  Everything from dried cranberries to Licorice! 
Needless to say when I got this box and opened it, I had some super interested kids and there are a few products missing in the picture because they disappeared to quickly!
With 3 kids home all the time, snacks are important and to find healthy snacks they like can be challenging so we were all excited to get to try some new healthy snacks! 
Newman's Own Organics was established in 1993 as a division of Newman's Own, and in late 2001 became it's own company.  Their products are certified organic and made with the highest quality organic ingredients. 
"Great Tasting Products that Happen to be Organic" is their slogan! 

Here is a rundown of all these fabulous products that we got to try:
*Fig Newman's
*Dried Cranberries
*Dried Prunes
*Newman-O's - Creme filled & Peanut Butter
*Newman's O's - wheat free creme filled
*Family Recipe Cookies - Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip & Ginger Snaps
*Pretzels - Thin Sticks & Salted Rounds

*Peanut Butter Cups
*Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Cups
*Caramel Cups
*Peppermint Cups
*Licorice - Sour Mango, Sour Cherry, Sour Apple, Sour Strawberry, Pomegranate, Black Licorice, Strawberry
*Chocolate Bars - Dk. Chocolate, Super Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, Expresso Dk Chocolate,  Orange Dk. Chocolate
Mints - Spearmint, Peppermints, Ginger, Hot Cinnamon

Once we had a chance to try everything, we had some products that we didn't like but there were so many we did. Of course the chocolate was the first to get tested, and it is sooo good, my fave was the Peppermint Cups, yummy!  I also loved the Newman's O's and the dried cranberries, so good in a salad.
 For this review I am gonna focus on the products we really liked, especially the kids and all of these products would make excellent back to school snacks, for the lunchbox or for the whole class or for homeschool!
In fact these are the 4 favorite items that I choose for the Giveaway!
Newman's Own Organics have created the first sour licorice twists made with Organic ingredients.  What I love is that they are low in fat, sodium, and cholesterol free and they contain no trans-fat! Now that is not something you just don't find in the candy isle! 
My kids LOVED this product and in fact there are 2 packs missing from my photo, cause they were so popular.  Sour Cherry was the most fave with the Sour Apple and the Strawberry rounding out the top 3 flavors! 

Newman's Own Organics Mints come in four flavors and are made with organic sugar and corn syrup as well as gum arabic and natural flavors.  Three pieces contain only 10 calories with no total fat, sodium or protein. 
We love the peppermint and the spearmint!  I personally love the spearmint.  We found the hot cinnamon mints to be just that- hot, cinnamon! 

Another favorite was the Family Recipe Cookies.  We didn't really care for the Ginger, but we passed those on to Grandma and she said that they were indeed Gingery! 
In my home the Chocolate Chip Family Recipe Cookie was the 1st fave with the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip coming in second.  They are crunchy and full of lots of chips.  Very tasty!

And finally the Newman's Own Pretzels.  With ten different varieties to choose from, they are baked and are low fat.  We love both the Salted Rounds and the Thin Sticks.  These are flavorful and crunchy.  We love the sticks for adding grapes and cheese to, makes a great healthy snack for the kids.
