Who wouldn't want to get a GIANT box in the mail filled with yummy food? I was lucky enough to get just that!!
I received a GIANT box of Newman's Own Organics foods to taste and I was not disappointed. Of course there was some skepticism when i started reading the packages; i mean wheat-free dairy-free cookies, organic and natural licorice and wheat flour pretzels, wouldn't you wonder a little bit?
These Oregon Tilth certified organic foods have been grown on farms that have not used artificial fertilizers or pesticides for three or more years.
Here goes nothing.. I went for what's the most safe first, the Pretzel Rods!
Dang! They were delicious.. these pretzels are made of organic unbleached wheat flour, organic rye flour, organic brown rice syrup, organic sunflower oil, organic barley malt, did i mention they were organic? With all those organic ingredients there is no way i would've known anything was different had i not read the package, they are that good! I am not surprised Newman's Own Organics Pretzels are delicious since that is the first food they started with back when the company first started.
I got a bit braver after the pretzels moving onto the Newman's O's. It is a wheat-free, dairy-free creme filled chocolate cookie perfect for dunking in milk! I first tried them without milk.. oh yeah.. delicious! Then I dunked them in some milk.. SCRUMPTIOUS! Before I knew it I had eaten nearly half the package, oops. :)
To top it all off I tried the dried cranberries and apples. I have been hooked on dried fruit lately, i find them sweet enough to eat as a snack instead of sugar candies. Newman's Own Organic Dried Fruits are so soft and chewy but not sticky like some get. These are my new favorite yogurt topping.
