It's time to share more reviews of the complimentary Newman's Own Organics products I recevied to review on my blog :-).
Fig Newmans (Great name if I say so myself!)
9 of 10. Soft, chewy, and fresh with a great texture. It definitely reminded me of a Fig Newton with the sweet gooey inside! My family agreed that they tasted like Fig Newtons.
8.5 of 10. I liked that these didn't have the sugar sprinkled on top. Still, they were quite sweet with a strong, rich molasses flavor. They were soft, fresh, and chewy and absolutely loaded with raisins - maybe too many, but that's just my opinion :-).
Now for Newman's Own Organics 2 versions of "crack" (at least for me!!)...
Barbeque Soy Crisps
9 of 10. Yeah, they're like crack, but I still wasn't happy with the amount of sodium they contained :-(. Otherwise they had a great BBQ flavor, were quite crispy and crunchy, and were slower to dissolve than the cheddar flavored ones. And the protein's an added bonus!
10 of 10!! Seriously, these were way too tasty - it has to be some sort of crime to make a cookie taste so good ;-). These were rich with 2 crispy, crunchy chocolate cookies sandwiching a creamy, smooth, and sweet chocolate filling. The 2 distinct chocolate flavors melded together to make a great combo that delighted my tastebuds!
Most of these Newman-O's were consumed with homemade nutbutter (pictured below) on top... which made them even more sinfully delicious!
