Newman's Own Organic Giveaway!!

So glad you stopped by little island studios! Follow via GFC, Networked and/or Twitter to receive updates. Thank you so much!



We have had a yummy time the last week eating our Newman's Own Organic snacks!!  We received some snacks to try out, and have not had one thing that wasn't absolutely fantastic!  They have amazing pretzels, cookies, licorice, mints, dried fruit and chocolate...ohhhhh, the chocolate!!  We have been using their olive oil for years, and it is perfect!


I received dried cranberries and apples in addition to pretzels and cookies, I really had planned to make cranberry oatmeal cookies.  That was until I tasted them...I love snacking on dried cranberries and these are absolutely the best!! Soooooo...I took the dried apples, (which I had to take away from my tween, LOL!)  I ran them through the food processor and used some of them to make apple pumpkin oatmeal cookies!  The whole batch lasted less than 24 hours!  Needless to say, the dried apples are fantastic!
 
This is my honest review, I have nothing negative to say, except for my kids ate everything too fast!  But, is that really a bad thing, kids eating organic healthy snacks?  (actually, I have a bag of pretzels hiding from them ;)




A little bit about the company - When Nell Newman and business partner Peter Meehan started Newman’s Own® Organics: The Second Generation® in 1993, they were sure there was a market for organic snack foods. 

It was “Pa” Newman’s  love for pretzels that made them a perfect first choice when they launched the pretzels in fall, 1993.

Great tasting products that happen to be organic is our slogan,” says Nell. “It really says a lot about us. We’ve seen in recent years that people want to know more about the food they eat, not just how many calories a product contains. It’s becoming more important to them how ingredients are grown and processed on the way to their grocers' shelf.

The sale of Newman’s Own Organics products generates money through a royalty system for the Newman’s Own Foundation to give away. Since 1982 Paul Newman and the Newman’s Own Foundation have donated more than $300 million dollars to educational and charitable organizations worldwide.



I am VERY impressed with this company, actually, I always have been.  They really do things the right way, from how they run the company to the ingredients they put in their (our) foods.  I am so happy they are sponsoring a fabulous giveaway, a prize pack with 4 full size snacks for you to try I am sure you'll love them too!

little island studios was given food goodies from Newman's Own Organic to try them out and no other compensation was given.  That's ok, I'll take yummies any day ;)
