Make a healthy snacking change with Newman’s Own Organics
I'll be the first to admit that I don't always make the best decisions when it comes to snacking. I've always been one that tends to shy away from snack foods that say they are "organic" or other healthy related terms. In the past I'd had a few bad experiences with foods not tasting very good in their alternate form. So I just stopped trying new ones as they came along. I'm sure many people will admit the same thing when they hear the word "organic".
Fast forward years later (to now) from when I first tried and was less than thrilled with my first organic foods experience. I am actually looking at organic foods and snacking with a whole new outlook and attitude. Since having tried some different foods recently as well as snacks I am learning that organic isn't so bad after all. Yes some foods do taste different, but that's even true between different brands of the exact same product. But that's a whole different conversation in itself. Back to organics. Newman’s Own is a brand name I've known for a long time and enjoyed several of their products over the years. A division of theirs I hadn't ever tried is Newman’s Own Organics. It's a line they've actually had for quite a long time. I was actually fortunate enough to receive a very nice sized box of their products recently to check out for myself and am happy to report that I'm loving some of my new found snacks. Right now at the top I have to say is their Fig Newmans - they are better than the other brand of fig bars in my opinion. You can really taste the fruit bits in them and they are so soft and moist. Newman's Own Organics Snacks are actually very good and I'm a bit sad I hadn't tried them out before. Knowing they don't sacrifice flavor for goodness gives me a whole new opinion of the line.
Newman’s Own Organics actually has quite a good array of cookies in their line to choose from. There's something for everyone whether they like a good chocolate on chocolate cookie, or just a simple plain shortbread cookie. This is the part where I admit I ate half a bag of the chocolate chip cookies in one sitting - yes they are that addicting!
Newman's Own Organics even has a really nice line of chocolates, candy and mints. I've not had too many organic foods from this category so I didn't really have much to compare to. I wasn't really thrilled with the flavor of the Licorice Twists - but my husband and son both said they thought they were awesome and asked if I had anymore. So besides brands all tasting different we also have to remember we each have our own individual taste bud differences. That's one sometimes I forget to not allow to influence me. I always tell my kids they have to try one bite of everything, but don't always remember that advice for myself when it comes to trying something new.
Thankfully I was given the opportunity to try out some new snacks because it's left me with a whole new attitude about organic snacking. I know now that I can still enjoy a treat whether it be sweet or salty and not have to fill my body with all sorts of unnecessary additives. You can stick to a healthy diet and enjoy the luxuries of snacking too!
