Newman's Own Organics Hermits

Author: healthnuttxo

Aren’t Hermits those annoying crabs? Nope! Well, sort of, those are hermit crabs, but the Hermits I’m talking about aren’t “crabby” at all.
They come in 3 different flavors, Original, Cinnamon and Ginger. I tried the Cinnamon variety of the 3. They resemble fig newtons in a way, and are approximately the same size and shape. They have HUGE sugar crystals on the top, that almost look like granules of salt. When you  bite into them, oh wow, it is such a nice experience.  They are made with figs (not to be confused with Newman’s Own Organic Fig Newmans…to be reviewed on a later date!! 🙂  ), and had a deep, chewy consistency, which i hold the molasses, fig, and raisins responsible for. There was a nice “spice” to them, mainly from the cinnamon. They weren’t overpoweringly sweet, but just sweet enough. The perfect compliment would be a nice cold glass of milk or even tea if you wanted to have something with them. I really thought the sugar crystals on top added a nice touch, even a tiny bit of a crunch to the cookie. These were GOOD!

1 cookie is 80 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, 17 carbohydrates, less than 1 gram of fiber, and 1 gram of protein.

These would be perfect if they were whole wheat and had more fiber. But for now, I’ll take ’em as is!

Organic Unbleached Wheat Flour, Organic Raisins, Organic Molasses, Organic Sugar, Organic Palm Fruit Oil, Oats, Organic Figs, Raisin Paste, Cinnamon and other Spices, Leavening (Baking Soda, Monocalcium Phosphate), Salt, Rice Bran Extract.
