Review: Newman's Own Organics #organicrecipes #healthiersnacks

For years now, one of our tried and true favorite snack makers has been Newman's Own Organics. Their products are always delicious, feeling somewhat gourmet, while providing a little more comfort in knowing that our snacking is at least healthier in the organic sense. The idea behind their products is to take the classic snacks we loved as kids and create organic, therefore healthier, versions. Their products are grown on pesticide and artificial fertilizer-free farms and certified organic and kosher. 

Mints, pretzels, cookies, dried fruits, licorice--they cover the snack arena really well. While we love each of their products featured above on their own, they also make great, healthier ingredients in fun summer recipes! We used the Newman's Own Organics Pretzels in our Fourth of July dessert recipe featured below...

Strawberry Pretzel Jello Salad

We love taking summer salads for lunch and the Newman's Own Organic Raisins and Cranberries add a nice pop to our Summer Spinach Salad recipe.

The Newman-O's are perfect for making fun summer ice cream treats!

Mint Cookies and Creme Milkshake

As delicious as the smaller pouches of Newman's Own Organics Cookies were, they didn't last long enough in our home to make it into a recipe. The chocolate in the oatmeal and orange chocolate chip cookies is so smooth and creamy, that we found ourselves finishing each bag before we realized it. Even the alphabet cookies are hard to put down. They make an easy grab-and-go snack for kids and the resealable bag is always helpful.

We also tried the Newman's Own Organic licorice and mints. My husband and niece each have major sweet tooth. They loved the chewiness and sourness of the licorice flavors that were covered in sour sugar. While the taste makes me pucker, this candy is right up their alley.

Head over to their website to take a look at all of the products Newman's Own Organics has to offer!
