A tasty #review with Newman’s Own Organics… Pretzels, Licorice, and Cookies!

Company Bio: “Great tasting food that happens to be organic. That’s what we kept in mind when we created our products. We focus on the kinds of products we loved as kids, but take them one step further by using the highest quality of available organic ingredients.

We find that people really want to know how the ingredients are grown and processed on the way to their grocer’s shelf. When people see how much organic foods have improved since the early days of packaged ‘health’ foods, we hope they’ll try other organic food products.”

newmansheaderPersonal Experience: Newman’s Own Organics provided me with a large complimentary selection of their products for the purpose of this review. It included many great snacks including a variety of pretzels, licorice, and cookies.

newmanslicoriceIf I had to pick one favorite product among the entire line of Newman’s Own Organics, it would definitely be the licorice. It’s soft and chewy and so full of amazing flavor! It doesn’t matter which flavor… they’re all good… but I do have a special affinity for the sour flavors. The coating of sugar against the sweetness of the licorice just makes for an amazing snack. The licorice, of course, was the first thing to disappear. Unfortunately, I can’t locate any locally. :( My mom has even joined the quest, because we got her addicted too. ;) I did eventually find that one of my local grocers carries the entire line of products… with one exception. I put in a suggestion and I hope to see the addition soon, but meanwhile I’m ordering from Amazon.

newmanscookies

I love the variety of cookies that Newman’s Own Organics offers… Fig Newmans, Hermits, several varieties of Newman-O’s, and many varieties of bagged cookies. My husband snapped up the bag of Fig Newmans in just minutes after I opened our box of goodies. He says that the Fig Newmans are way better than [that other fig cookie brand]. ;) I love the little bagged cookies. The basic chocolate chip are very good, but the oatmeal chocolate chip take it one step up to awesome. They both have a great crunch with soft chocolate chips inside. The Prince really enjoyed the soft and chewy Hermits. (Still wish they’d make a version of raisin-free Hermits… I’d be all over those!

newmanspretzels

Newman’s Own Organics has such an amazing selection of pretzels. One of my personal favorites is the High Protein pretzels. As a dieter, these provide a really satisfying snack. I get the crunch I’m craving with an extra burst of filling protein. The pretzels all have a great balance of crunch and saltiness. The Honey Wheat were a great change of pace. A bit of extra flavor from the whole wheat dough and a touch of sweetness to go with the salty crunch. All-in-all a great collection of snacks suitable for everyday meals and parties.

Pros: Great tasting favorites made organic. Lots of flavor choices in every category. Most products are easy to find at the stores you already shop at.

Cons: Where is the licorice?!

  2. OMG! I just love their licorice! I looked everywhere for it but only found it on Amazon. It is not in any of my local stores that I have checked. So if anyone knows where else I can find it please let me know. Thank You!

    • The best advice I can give is to ask your local stores to stock it. Sometimes that’s the only way they find out people want it.

  3. Newman’s Own does make really good products. I’ve tried the cookies before. I have yet to try the licorice though. The picture of it looks really good.

    • If you like licorice, you’ll definitely want to try theirs. I’ve always been a bit take it or leave it with licorice, but the NOO licorice is just delicious.

  4. Wow, Newman has really branched out, he’s doing organic now. The only thing I have tried is his salad dressing. I know people who really love his products

  5. I’ve had Newman products before and I liked them. I’ve not had the licorice before though. I am a snacker so these would be healthier snacks for me to have since they use organic ingredients :)

  7. I have a special weakness for licorice. I’m not a big fan of the sour ones, just the regular red licorice. I looked for Newman’s in my local store but couldn’t find it. I’m always weary of purchasing food products online because it’s hot outside and I’d hate for it to go bad or get bugs if left on my doorstep :-)

    • I completely understand that. I’ve put in requests at my local grocery stores, because I also prefer to get food in person.

  8. I probably shouldn’t have clicked on this review because now I’m craving licorice. Yum! I love Newman’s Own. They have some tasty stuff.

    Reply
    • Sorry. :) I am craving more too! I think I’ll have to see if my grocery store ordered some yet… or use some of my Amazon gift cards.

  9. I love the fact that these products are organic! The only Newman’s Own product I knew about and use was the salad dressing in creamy caesar.It’s great too!

    Reply
    • I haven’t tried the dressings yet, but based on my experiences so far I will have to!

  10. I love Paul Newmans products, I have never tasted anything I didn’t like. My favorite thing about his products is that 100 percent of the sale goes to his charity

    Reply
    • That’s something I didn’t even know!

  11. I have never tried these cookies. They do look delicious though.

  12. These are in my local grocery store. I’ve tried a few things, and they’re pretty good…. I didn’t know they were organic!

  13. Yum! I’m a big fan of newman o’s, but haven’t tried any of their other products. I didn’t even know they made licorice…I’ll have to figure out where to get some!

  14. I love Newman’s products. I have not tried the licorice, but after your review I am headed to the store tomorrow to get it. Thanks for sharing information on companies that offer organic products!!!

  15. I do not eat these type of snacks any longer, but I do not keep them away from family. I think they may like some of these.
