my favorites were...
what a blessing! newman's own organics sent me a huge box full of food to sample. it came with nearly all products they produce, with a couple exceptions. I noticed the packages were color coded and when I read up on it, found out they do this to be easily distinguished. out of all the food I received, my favorites were the champion chip cookies and newman-o's mint cookies. did I mention I love sweets...?
I especially loved the champion chip cookies in regular chocolate chip flavor over everything else! they have a "different" taste to them, one that I've never came across until now. the truth is, at first I wasn't positive whether I liked them but after eating a few, I was hooked. what's cool is the chocolate chips are manufactured out of the chocolate newman's own organics produces. besides the taste, I like that they are bite size. oh and the best part- they are free of tans-fat and cholesterol. these make the perfect snack!
my other ultimate favorite would be the newman-o's in mint creme. out of 3 flavors I got to test out, this was the bomb! all it took was one cookie and the next thing I knew was two days later they were gone. generally oreo's or off brand oreo's don't come in the creme flavor mint so this was a nice change. these had a hint of mint- not too much nor too little, just right. all in all, it feels good knowing your eating organic, which has the world's people, animals & environment's best interest at heart. go green!
