Newman's Own Organic's Chocolates & Hermit Cookies Review



I love Newman's Own Organic's and if you have never tried them, then you need to! They have some of the best tasting cookies, like these Hermits, along with a long list of other cookies that will make your heart sing and put an extra skip in your walk. They are good for you and made to taste just like they were homemade from your Mom's oven.

The Hermits come in three flavors, Ginger, Original and Cinnamon. I love the Cinnamon ones the best so that is what I got for this review. I have eaten them before but it's been awhile so it was a special treat getting to try them again. They kind of taste like a cinnamon cookie and a raisin cookie all rolled into one.


They are made with molasses and that is what gives it that rich dark color and it sure as heck adds to the rich taste of the hermits! There are 12 cookies in each package and they are pretty thick cookies and I doubt that you can eat more than a few at a time.

 
Now, here is where there greatness really shines through. If you love organic chocolate, then this is one product you definitely want to try. They have several different kinds and they have added a few more since the last time I reviewed them, so I got to try the new flavors.
 
A little background on how they are made:
Inspired by our love of chocolate, we searched for a source of organic cocoa beans to make a rich, flavorful chocolate - and we found it! Our new Signature Series line of Chocolate Bars is formulated with some of the finest Certified Organic chocolate we've ever tasted, made from cocoa beans grown on Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms.
I got to review the  Milk Chocolate 34%, Dark Chocolate 54% and Super Dark Chocolate 70%. Now, of course, the Milk Chocolate was where Mike zoomed in on and left the Dark Chocolates to me. I like Dark Chocolate and can eat it in small quantities because it is very silky and rich, so I don't recommend eating a lot of it at one time. A little goes a long way and you will want to make these last as long as possible.


The chocolate bars will be available in two sizes: 3.25-ounce and 2.25-ounce.


Carefully selected organic cocoa beans and other fine ingredients were used to produce a line of chocolate with richer flavors and a creamy, smooth texture.


Here's a list of all the Chocolate Bars:
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Super Dark Chocolate 70% Cocoa - NEW!
  • Mocha Milk Chocolate - NEW!
  • Milk Chocolate
  • Espresso Dark Chocolate
  • Orange Dark Chocolate

The cookies look good. Are they a lot of calories? I'd love to eat more organic.
