Newman's Own Organics Chocolate Review

Yes, another Newman's Own Organics review :-).  Click here for my past ones.

Now, who doesn't like to review chocolate?!  It's so fun and delectable!  Here are the flavors I got to try:

I gave a couple of the bars to my parents to review and then reviewed the rest myself :-).

Mocha Milk Chocolate: 8 of 10.
Mom: Not a big fan of the "mocha" flavor.  Noticed a gritty texture too.

Milk Chocolate: 9 of 10.
Mom: Cute bar with good taste and texture - very creamy.  Cocoa milk - yum!  If there were added almonds, it would be perfect.
Dad: Good taste but occasional gritty texture.

Now for my reviews...

Orange Dark Chocolate: 9.5 of 10.  Rich and creamy with a nice hint of orange that isn't overpowering.  A very cool flavor combo!

Espresso Dark Chocolate: 8.5 of 10. Smooth and creamy for the most part, but sometimes a tad gritty :-(.  I enjoyed the espresso taste since it wasn't too overpowering.

Super Dark Chocolate: 9.5 of 10.  Smooth with just a little "bite" to it that is often characteristic of super dark chocolate.

Dark Chocolate: 10 of 10!  My favorite :-).  Creamy and not bitter at all.  It actually tasted like it had mint in it?  But that's a good thing as far as I'm concerned!

Now for some nature pictures I took on a recent bike ride!  I've built up to a couple 18 mile rides already... but the first day of RAGBRAI is almost 70 miles, so I have some longer rides still in store for me.  I hope I'll be ready come July 25!

Oh, and one last picture of my family's kitten for some comic relief :-)

Silly kitty!!!

Have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!
