Newman's Own Organics was established as a division of Newman's Own in 1993, and became a separate company in late 2001. The sale of Newman's Own Organics products generates money for the Newman's Own Foundation to give away. Since 1982 Paul Newman and the Newman's Own Foundation have donated more than $350 million dollars to educational and charitable organizations worldwide. Newman's Own Organics gives the definition of Organic as: Organic agriculture is a holistic system with the primary goal of optimizing the health and productivity of interdependent communities of soil life, plants, animals, and people. Management practices are carefully selected with an intent to restore and then maintain ecological harmony on the farm, its surrounding environment and ultimately the whole planetary ecosystem. Organic production systems seek to provide food, fiber and herbal products of the highest quality in sufficient quantities.

My four favorite products that Newman's Organics sells are,
Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies, Hermits, Dried Prunes & Spelt Pretzels.
They are small soft melt in your mouth hint of orange and lots of chocolate chip cookies. It's hard to explain how good these are. My boyfriend opened the bag and ate some when I was at work. He told me to try one when I got home, good thing I didn't or the bag would of been gone before dinner. Later that evening I gave one a try. One went to two then three before I knew it the whole bag was gone. I don't think I have ever had such a good bagged cookie before. To know these are organic and so yummy is a huge plus for me. Now if I can just figure out how to not eat the whole bag in one sitting, I will be fine.
At my local market the 7oz. bag of Orange Chocolate Chip cookies is less then $3.00, Excellent deal for the best tasting cookies in the world.
My favorite is the Ginger flavor.
“Hermits were a family favorite when I was growing up,” say Nell Newman, co-founder and president of the company. “Our recipe, which is based on one we used to make at home, is filled with our delicious organic raisins and sweetened with organic molasses. These spicy, chewy cookies are said to have originated in Colonial New England. One theory is that hermits were named for their long keeping qualities—better when hidden away like a hermit for several days. I doubt if these will last long enough to hide.”
Love these. I take them in the morning when i don't have time for breakfast and usually eat one or two on my ride to work. Along with a cup of coffee they make a great morning treat. The soft texture and unique flavors and hint of ginger make my mouth water just thinking about them.
The 9 oz. bag also sells for around $3.00 at my local market.
Great anytime snack ~ to me the dried prune is like a piece of candy, it's sweet,
sticky and delicious.
For those of you that don't know what spelt is, here is a little info: Spelt is a species of wheat that was a very important crop in ancient and medieval times, but now it is only commonly grown in Europe. It's been around in the United States since the 1890s, but it was replaced in the 20th century by bread wheat. According to Wikipedia, spelt actually requires fewer fertilizers, so the organic farming movement is making it more popular again, as is the health food industry.
Great for snacking or packing in your lunch bag, Spelt Pretzels are baked (not fried), their pretzels make a great low-fat, healthy snack with only 1 to 1.5 gram fat (no trans-fat).
Spelt Pretzels are the perfect size small pretzel with a great taste and a hint of salt. I love these for everyday snacking or when I pack them in my lunch bag and have them along with a sandwich or even bowl of soup.
You know what your eating when you have anything that Newman's Own Organics makes. Spelt Pretzels have very few ingredients but are packed full of taste.
Organic spelt flour, spelt flour, organic sunflower oil, salt, yeast, and soda.
Around $4.00 a bag you will be happy you picked some up.
