Newman's Own Organics - GIVEAWAY

Newman's Own Organics. Have you heard of this company? Not to be confused with Newman's Own. Newman's Own Organics is a separate company. Here is a little bit about the company

Newman’s Own Organics was established as a division of Newman’s Own in 1993, and became a separate company in late 2001. Paul Newman has given over $200 million to thousands of charities worldwide since 1982.
Certified organic by Oregon Tilth. Ingredients have been grown on farms that have not used artificial fertilizers or pesticides for three years or more. The farms and processors have been certified by an independent third party. Kosher certification by Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America, 333 Seventh Avenue, New York. 
The sale of NOO products generates money for the Newman’s Own Foundation to give away. That since 1982 Paul Newman and the Foundation have donated more than $300 million to a wide number of educational and charitable organizations worldwide. One of the company’s main goals is to support sustainable agriculture through the development of good tasting products. Many of them, as you will see, are essentially snack food which can’t be deemed something to eat all the time, but when you do have them those with organic and pronounceable ingredients are definitely better for you. The company’s slogan is “Great Tasting Products that Just Happen to Be Organic.” 
 The folks at Newman's Own Organics sent us amazing box of products to try out. I know, it's a hard knock life here at Give Peas A Chance. But, you can get in on this deliciousness by entering to win a product assortment worth $25-$30 below. We were sent

Newman’s Own Organics

The mints were robust and flavorful. The girls liked them all. The ginger was nice in helping sooth tummies. The cinnamon, wintergreen and peppermints were also flavorful. Not overpowering but so fragrant. 

The pretzels were crisp and perfectly salted, not too salty and not tough. The apricots were so yummy, I used them in a pork dish to make a compote.

O, the O's, cookies and the Figs... NOM NOM. The chocolate and chocolate mint were my personal favorite. Not overly sweet, just good flavor and texture. So good. The gingersnaps, grahams and chocolate chip cookies were delish and the perfect size for a little snack. Which is what all of these offerings are. Snacks, they aren't a main food group, but a little treat. Perfect with a glass of milk.

 The chocolate. The beautiful, creamy chocolates. Three perfect little cups. Which would be perfect for my three little girls, so I *ahem* might have tested some of these when they weren't looking. Smooth creamy chocolate, great flavor, the fillings were so good. DH and I both agreed that the peanut butter ones were so much better than the mainstream peanut butter cups. There was no funny after taste with these.

DH LOVES licorice. Me? It's not my favorite. I don't like most licorice, it's too sweet, not enough actual flavor. I can honestly say that these are flavorful, soft, chewy twists and that the pomegranate is my favorite licorice. SO good. DH and the kids loved all of them.
