Hello, everyone! Sorry for the lag in posts. It was a very busy week.
I did get some snacking done, though, and I tried the lovely sea-salt flavored Newman’s Own Organics Soy Crisps.
I am a potato chip fiend through and through. Nothing delights me more than a good, crispy chip, which I do have for review soon, but to my surprise, I couldn’t stop eating these crisps.
They have a nice, rice and soy based crunch to them, very crispy, and soft throughout. Unlike other crisps, there’s no strange and brittle crunch. The sea salt comes out in them in a very subtle, but tasty way. They are quite low in calories.
If these could be improved, I might say that they could use a little more sea salt. I ate them on a stomachache and their plain and simple flavor was very tasty and easy on my stomach, especially with the overall consistency, but to some, they may be a little bland.
I’m trudging through this package, and my family and friends are extremely happy to reap the leftovers of what I share.
This cookie was another version of the Champion Chip line of Newman’s Own Organics. They tasted like the Hint ‘O Mint Newman-O’s minus the cream. The mint flavor overpowered the chocolate and tasted dry. I thought it would have made the texture moist, but it didn’t do much.
The chocolate chips were plentiful. I strongly recommend these with a glass of milk. They were flavorful for mint lovers, but a little too much mint for regulars like myself.
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.
Another winner. Seriously. I want to let you know, Newman’s Own Organics doesn’t get all tens and nines and eights because they sent me all this free stuff, they get high marks because their stuff is just freaking awesome. If this is what eating organically consists of, send over the freakin’ carrots.
This is not your mother’s peanut butter cookie.
No, when they say “peanut butter” they mean peanut butter. It’s not peanut butter cream, or peanut butter glaze, or peanut butter frosting. It’s peanut butter. Plain, simple, delicious. Like the inside of a Reese’s, except more peanutty. It’s fucking infused with peanut butter.
But the nice thing is that it doesn’t overpower. The crunch from the cookie blends incredibly with the peanut butter, much like the Hint O’ Mint Newman-O. It’s not the sweetest cookie, but it’s flavorful. In fact, it’s much better than a sweet cookie because the sweetness is subtle. It stays in your mouth afterward with those nutty notes, instead of burning your throat.
This cookie is amazing. I love it. I want to buy this and fill my house, so that in the event of a nuclear apocalypse, I can live happy, underground, and stuffed with these.
Here’s another product from the lovely people at Newman’s Own Organics. They gave me two kinds to try, original and cinnamon.
The cookie is a little deceptive in its packaging. The package looks big, but inside, there are only twelve cookies. Luckily, the cookies are extremely filling. I took three, expecting to eat them all and still be hungry, but stopped after two, they were that thick.
The cookie itself was delicious, but had me a little worried about the plain ones, because with the medley of raisins and doughy texture and cinnamon, it didn’t seem like it would be right if the cinnamon wasn’t there at all. I’ll have to see when I taste the plain ones.
The texture was thick, almost like a really good brownie, and the pieces of sugar were sweet and added to the richness of the cookie. They provided a lovely crunch and almost none of them fell off the cookie before eating them.
This is just a really excellent cookie. Personally, I cannot stand raisins, but these blended so well. They’re like an oatmeal raisin bar for the sophisticated set, the people who need more than a run-of-the-mill cookie. This is stuff for gourmands. Very tasty.
I tried these, and they’re definitely as good as, if not better, than Oreos.
I am not a mint person, really, not when peanut butter or more chocolate can be had, but I did try the “Mint and Creme” Oreos, and these are such a breath of fresh air from that gelatinous mess.
The cookie is a delicious chocolate, with the perfect balance of minty cream filling. Nothing green in here, just pure mint extract. The cookies were crunchy and had the perfect amount of filling. And these were some thick cookies! Almost the thickness of a Double Stuf Oreo.
I liked these. I’m not sure if I’d buy them again, but they were very tasty and balanced well.
7/10- VERY GOOD
Have you ever tasted a Terry’s Chocolate Orange? These cookies are exactly like those.
Newman’s Own Organics makes the best cookies, I’m convinced, and are one of the most friendly and generous companies I’ve ever encountered. I got over twenty five of their products today in the mail, and my father and I sat and crunched away at one of many product samples, the Orange Chocolate Chip Champion Chip Cookies.
When you first open the bag, there’s a lovely, homey orange and cookie scent, like these were freshly baked. This is a plus. The cookies are the size of a large half dollar and are studded with chocolate chips. Although the bag portrays many more chips than the actual average cookie, I was able to look this over, as these cookies are FREAKING AMAZING.
The crunch is buttery, smooth, and crunchy, dissolving into a wonderful taste. Natural ingredients really do make the difference, folks. It’s no surprise here. The orange tastes like real zest was used in these, and the chocolate blends perfectly.
A winner. If the rest of the products from Newman’s Own Organics are anything like this, I will be the size of a boat.
