Product Review ~ Newman's Own Organics Fig Newmans Cookies

Today I would like to introduce you to the great company called Newman's Own Organics and their fantastic organic Fig Newman's line of products. If you are not familiar with what a Fig Newman is, I am going to tell you all about them. The Newman's Own Organics Fig Newmans are a fruit filled cookie that is made with organic figs. They are available in 3 varieties: Fat Free, Low-Fat and the Wheat Free/Dairy Free Varieties.

Nutritional Information: Serving Size is 2 Fig Newman's at 120 calories per serving with 0 calories from fat.

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: We were sent 2 packages of Fig Newman's to try out in our own home. We love the other major brand of cookies like this so I was excited to try the Newman's Own Organics brand to see how they measured up. We received the Fat-Free and Low-Fat varieties. The first ones that we opened were the fat-free ones as I wanted to give those to my 20 month old grand daughter for her afternoon snack. While she was having her snack, we tried them out too! (we weren't going to let her have all of the fun!). The Fig Newman's have a nice soft cookie layer and inside are delicious tasting figs. The cookies almost melt in your mouth! They have the perfect blend of cookie and figs without them being too sweet. They are the perfect size for little or adult hands and a great snack to have any time of the day. In regards to the low-fat variety, they didn't taste any differently than the fat-free ones! Seriously, I couldn't tell a taste difference at all and both were equally good.

Overall Impression: My family has always loved cookies like this but we have never tried the Newman's Own Organics Fig Newmans until now. Wow...I am going to admit to all of you... that these are a lot better than that other big name brand of fig cookies! What I really liked about this brand as compared to most of the others is the fact that they weren't too sweet and I appreciated that the seeds of the figs were a lot smaller and barely noticeable as you chewed the cookies. (some of the other brands have big seeds in them that get stuck between your teeth, you know what I mean!). Another plus for the Newman's Own Organics Brand is that they of course are made with organic figs which means they are a lot healthier for you to consume. If you have never tried this brand of fig cookies, I would like to invite you to pick up a pack and do your own comparison taste test. I bet after you taste them that you will agree with me that these Fig Newmans rock!
