AS IF we need any more treats to eat with the upcoming holidays, I’m going to put these on your list of goodies to buy and eat too. Newman’s Own Organics sent me a free bag of their Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. I couldn’t really say no. It’s simple logic. I love Newman’s Own Organics. I love Chocolate Chip Cookies. I love oatmeal (does that work?) SO- voila! I must love Newman’s Own Organics Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies….no?

At first, I looked at the nutritional facts. SWEET, I thought. 1 serving was five cookies. I like when servings are more than 1 or 2, or half…. (I know some cereals where 1/4 of a cup is a serving. WHAT? WHO eats 1/4 cup!?!?)

But…..of course, the cookies were tiny.

However, even though the size lacked, the flavor was delicious. It was a crunchy/crumbly cookie with rather large chocolate chips that literally melted in my mouth. The cookies were sweet and had that crunchy-yet-soft texture thing going on, especially when you bit into a chocolate chip.

You could taste just a bit of a salty aftertaste, as well as a hint of vanilla.

In fact, these cookies reminded me of Chips Ahoy!, but thicker, and well…better. They had a bit more of a homemade flavor than a Chips Ahoy! cookie would, which is why I liked them better.

These cookies are dangerous. So tiny as in, oh I can soooooo have another one, and it’s literally impossible to eat only one. But a good dangerous. In the sense that, yea I would buy these in the future if given the opportunity. 4 stars

And…..nutrition facts

Newman’s Own Organics Organic Apples

Author: Healthnuttxo

I happen to like dried fruit. Chewy, sweet, good on the go or in cereal. Although apricots may be my favorite, I thought that dried apples would be good as well seeing as apples are my favorite fruit. Anyway, seeing the picture below (apologies for ripping the bag HORRIBLY), the apples look like dried apple slices.

Each one was tough, and had a nice bite to it. But the flavor was actually quite good. Definetly sweet and chewy, not tart at all with a raisin-like consistency, they reminded me of those bits of apples I used to get in my instant oatmeal when I was a kid, (and, well, still eat now…).

What I also liked was that you get quite a bit of pieces for a serving. They are not all apple rings, some are just pieces in the bag, and after I measured how much a serving was (40 grams), it was a generous amount. Something good to snack on, and something I’d have to actually take time to chew and enjoy! Just another way for me to enjoy my favorite fruit. Best part is, only ONE ingredient, Dried Organic Apple Rings. 4 stars!

1/4 cup (40 grams) is 120 calories, 0 grams of fat, 29 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 22 grams of sugar, and 0 grams of protein.

What’s your favorite dried fruit?


I was provided this bag of Organic Apples to try for free from Newman’s Own Organics.
