Advocate For Our Food Supply With Newman's Own Organics




I am an advocate of quality food.  When my grandmother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer I took the reigns in regard to her diet as much as I could.  I stuck with organic foods found at Whole Foods and my local health food store.  She had an insatiable craving for sweets, which is quite common for her diagnosis. At times that was all she could get down.  I purchased loads of  Newman's Own Organics cookies along with their pretzels.  She enjoyed these treats immensely as did everyone else in the family.

Sadly my grandmother has since passed away.  She did, however,  really surprise the medical community. No one expected her to live nearly as long as she did after her initial diagnosis.  Even her quality of life was relatively decent up until the bitter end.  I credit her mostly organic diet as being one factor that enabled her to battle this horrid disease.

Newman's Own Organics have maintained their high standards of excellence since their inception many years ago.


The Newman-O's are my favorite store bought cookie.  I am hard pressed to choose a favorite flavor because I enjoy them all, but my top three are the original, chocolate and mint.   My grandmother loved the Vanilla.

Newman's Own flavors:

Original • Peanut Butter • Chocolate • Hint O' Mint
Ginger 'n' Cream  Wheat Free Dairy Free  Vanilla

Quality is the difference

Compare Newman's Own Organics with Oreo's

Oreo's

Sugar, enriched flour, high oleic canola oil and/or palm oil and/or soybean oil, cocoa (PROCESSED WITH ALKALI), high fructose corn syrup, cornstarch, leavening, salt, soy lecithin, vanillin (artificial flavor), chocolate

Newman's Own Organics O's:

Organic Unbleached Wheat Flour, Organic Powdered Sugar (Organic Sugar, Organic Corn Starch), Organic Sugar, Organic Palm Fruit Oil, Canola Oil (Expeller Pressed), Cocoa (Processed with Alkali), Unsweetened Chocolate, Salt, Natural Flavor, Sodium Bicarbonate (leavening), Soy Lecithin (an emulsifier).

 You can really see the dichotomy in the quality of ingredients.  I'm personally not a fan of enriched flour found in Oreo-s.  Surprisingly this ingredient is omnipresent in supermarket fare.  It's basically so processed that synthetic vitamins are added as an attempt to replace what was lost.  Another red flag ingredient: high fructose corn syrup.  Both these ingredients are said to lead to obesity,  That means, they're not diet-friendly.

Introducing Newman's Own Organic Family Recipe Cookies




The folks at Newman's Own Organics sent me both the  Family Recipe Chocolate Chip and the Double Chocolate Chip cookies.  These are a scrumptious little cookie with the most delicious chocolate chips.  I enjoyed the Family Recipe cookies almost as much as the Newman-O's.  These are definitely a close second.

A smarter option to traditional store bought treats


While the Newman-O's and the Family Recipe Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite there are still other items in this line that I really enjoy including the the Fig Newmans, pretzels along with a host of other organic treats that you can feel comfortable feeding your family.

Find Newman's Own Organics at Whole Foods, health food stores and the natural/organics section of your local grocery store.

Funny you have the pic of the Newmans "oreo" cookie on the post. Because that was THE first Newman product I ever tried, to get away from the hydrongenated fat in the "real" ones. They are not bad at all. I have tried some of the salad dressings and I see SO many new products they are coming out with now.. I will be trying a few.

My fave Newman product has been the Sockittome Marinara and the Basalmic salad dressing. The military commissary stocked those items world wide and we thorouughly enjoyed them. Many of the newer products like NewmanO's and the licorice I've never seen.

I love their hearty pasta sauce! I love that it doesn't have any of those icky preservatives. I try to make my own pasta sauce but it is never as good (and I like to think I'm a pretty darn good cook!) My kids love the little snacks like ginger snaps and fig newmans and I don't feel guilty letting them have one or two!
