|Newman's Own Organics cookies|
Although I love to bake, I will admit there are times when homemade is not an option. On those occasions when you are in need of a cookie fix, I prefer organic baked treats like the delicious variety from Newman's Own Organics, which have been known to appear in my shopping cart from time to time.
My particular favorite is Fig Newman's Low Fat or the Regular variety. These are always so soft and yet fruity.
Then again, Newman-O's creme filled are also very good that I received for this review when it comes to sandwich cookies. I sampled the vanilla creme filled chocolate, the peanut-butter creme filled chocolate ones, the newest addition to this line with the vanilla creme filled vanilla cookies, and creme filled, wheat-free, dairy-free chocolate cookies.
What I loved about these Newman-O's are the better organic ingredients, less sugar in the formula than their non-organic alternative, and more intense chocolate or vanilla flavor in the wafer cookie itself. The fillings are creamy and luscious, perhaps, just slightly thinner than the non-organic variety. Nonetheless, they are scrumptious together when teamed up with a cup of coffee.
The Family Cookie Recipe Double Chocolate Chip cookies are jammed-packed with rich chocolate. This is especially handy when you're tempted to grab a chocolate bar with the amount of semi-sweet pieces in each cookie.
I also received the new cookie addition to their Family Recipe Cookies with the Spelt Ginger Snaps. I loved how heightened the spicy ginger flavor in this cookie taste in this crunchy, but not overly sweet treat.
Of course, organic cookies have calories, fats, and sugar just like the other non-organic brands. However, they do instill more trust with what goes into their baked goods by way of ingredients, how they are grown, and limiting sweetness without denying a consumer a fabulous tasting cookie.
If you haven't tried any cookie from Newman's Own Organics, I think you should give this company a shot.
