Product Review ~ Newman's Own Organic Dried Fruit Snacks

Today I would like to introduce you to the great company called Newman's Own Organics and their fantastic organic dried fruits line of products. What I love about their line of products is that all of them are USDA certified organic!

Newman's Own Organics is proud to partner with U.S. Certified Organic Farms and Processors whose commitment to Certified Organic practices make these fine organic dried fruits available to you, the consumer.

Newman's Own Organics sent me a large box of their organic products to try out in my own home so that I could write honest and unbiased opinions about them. I am breaking this down into several smaller product reviews so I hope you continue to follow along over the next few weeks as I post them.

My Review: Newman's Own Organics sent me 2 bags of their organic dried fruits for my review. I received a bag of their Berry Blend and a bag of their Apples to share with my family. First up The Berry Blend. This particular blend contains organic raisins, organic cranberries, organic blueberries and organic cherries...the perfect berry blend! I love that they come in a zipper closure bag so that we can keep them fresh as we consume them. The taste...oh my! This berry blend is absolutely perfect for the berry lover like me! I love snacking on dried fruit snacks through out the day and this bag was quickly demolished by my husband and I. What I really appreciate besides the fantastic taste is that a 1/4 cup of the berries is only 120 calories. Munching on dried fruits is a lot healthier for you than other traditional snack foods.

The other flavor we got to sample was their wonderful dried apple snacks. Wanna know what is really impressive about this one? It contains nothing but dried organic apples! I kid you not, the ONLY ingredients is apples! A 1/4 cup serving is only 120 calories so it's a great snack for those who are watching their weight.

Overall Impression: My family and I have totally enjoyed snacking on both the Berry Blend and the Dried Apples. Both are incredibly tasty, moist and chewy. There is nothing dried, hard or chunky with these snacks. Besides using them as a snack food, you could toss some into your favorite quick bread recipe and back up a great tasting bread or muffin. My personal favorite was the Berry Blend but my hubby preferred the Apples. We give these products a big 2 thumbs up and will be purchasing them on our next grocery store run!

I would like to thank Newman's Own Organics for sending me the organic dried fruit snacks to try out for my product review! We loved them!
