Newman’s Own Organics Newman-O’s

These cookies came in the package, but when I opened them, they were all crunched up. Not all of them, but a few. I think I’ll use the crumbs for an ice cream topping.

These were like the mint Newman-O’s, but for some reason, the creme filling must have really hydrated the cookies, because they were a bit moister. The creme wasn’t like a regular vanilla, either. It was a tasty creme, much less grainy than Oreos and tasted less vanilla flavored than marshmallow. It was good.

These are a good stand-by to eat or give to friends and family, but I definitely prefer Newman’s Own Organics specialty flavors of Newman-O’s. Something was just strange about this. I think it was the texture of the cookie, perhaps, that made it not to my liking. I feel like these would taste much better as a recipe than a stand-alone snack.

Welch’s 100% White Grape Juice

Compared to the red grape juice of yesterday’s post, this juice was much better.

It’s a nice, white grape juice, and tastes very, very sweet. Much sweeter than the red grape, but still tasty. For some reason, I didn’t get as much syrupy flavor as with the red, but would have diluted it anyhow. It was a tasty juice.

A little bottle is enough for me when it’s that syrupy anyhow. It was thick, but seemed to get better as it chilled in the freezer. Welch’s makes a damned fine juice, but I think I’m going to stick to the lite kind for now. I’ve been raised to its standard. Curse you, diet kings and queens!

6/10- GOOD

Welch’s 100% Grape Juice

My mother buys lite juices, so I was not prepared for the flavor and taste of this. I’ve been drinking a lot of powdered “single” drink mixes, like Crystal Light and such.

The drink is a dark, deep purple. It’s a really syrupy texture, which I didn’t like. It was sent to me as part of a wonderful little promotional package of Welch’s Juice, along with a tote bag, a pen, a magnet, and three other bottles of juice, with a selection of white and red grape. Very generous!

The flavor was unmistakably 100% grape, and it was a very good grapey taste. Heavy grape aroma, too. I don’t know. The juice was good, much better cold than warm, but it just tasted a lot like Dimetapp cough medicine, with that syrupy texture. In the future, if I have this again, I’ll either buy the “lite” version or dilute this a little. I was just turned off by the texture.
