We had the opportunity to review Newman's Own Organics (NOO) line of snacks. I'm usually very picky about what type of snacks I bring in the home. I looked through the ingredients of some the snacks to see what was being used to sweeten them and what was used for their dried fruits, etc.
I was happy to see that their dried fruits do not contain sulfite, sulfur dioxide, additives, or preservatives! Some of the sugars used in their NOO line of snacks are honey, beet sugar, and dehydrated cane juice. We were sent a huge assortment of their snack line and they even included their olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Honey actually ended up "reviewing" most of the NOO snacks and only saving me a sampling of each type! So this review will be mostly his feedback.
Eating snacks that are made with such careful choice of ingredients add a carefree delight in every bite! The chocolate cookies that sandwich cream filling or peanut butter in the Newman-O's had a serious crunch with a light consistency and bold chocolatey flavor. What was especially important was that the cookies didn't taste like sugar bombs, or the feeling like having finished a can of soda (we are almost exclusively water drinkers). The NOO dark chocolate selections, both plain, and the peanut butter filled cups also had rich flavor. It was satisfying to snack on something that didn't just taste like processed sugar, but combinations of real flavor. ~Honey
We enjoyed the NOO snacks so much that we actually ended up buying some NOO raisins for Kiggster too! I really enjoyed even the unsalted Pop's Corn because I was able to flavor them myself with the right amount of butter and sea salt. I plan on also being able to make some sweet popcorn…maybe drizzle some dark chocolate and caramel. The NOO Olive Oil was also really nice. We used it to drizzle over some walnut raviolis and it didn't taste greasy/oily but was a light flavor and really helped enhance the walnut raviolis. The NOO olive oil was also featured in my Guac Bomb recipe! Since Honey reviewed most of the NOO loot, I allowed him to choose his 4 favorite items and this is what he narrowed them down to:
- Newman-O's in Original
- Newman's O's in Peanut Butter
- Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
- Dark Chocolate Bar
