Newman’s Own Organics and the Magic Cranberries

Newman's Own Organics Giveaway Overload Disclosure

It was magical I tell you.

Magic.

Meet Joshua, the pickiest eater in our home. I would not venture to say the pickiest eater in the world. My brother once went through a phase where he would only eat eggs and oatmeal. That’s pretty darn picky.

Thanks to Newman's Own my picky eater snarfs down dried cranberries like there's no tomorrow. Read my review about several Newman's Own Organics products. #ad

However, I did have my mind blown just a little the other day when I opened a bag of dried cranberries from Newman’s Own Organics. Olivia saw what I was doing and immediately demanded asked ever so sweetly that I share. Always wanting in on whatever is going on, Joshua ran up and asked for a handful as well.

{Insert skeptical look here}

I gave him one, yes one, little dried cranberry. I just knew he was going to hate it. He doesn’t do the whole fruit thing unless it’s a banana or an apple and it’s every other Tuesday in a month that doesn’t end with R.

Then it happened. He ate it. No faces, no noises, and he held out that little hand for a real handful. Then another. He has tried at least two other brands of dried cranberries and not liked them. He even hesitantly tried them again a few days later and still liked them. If you’re a parent you know that a child liking something iffy twice is a miracle.

Cranberries aren’t the only yummy snack we’re enjoying from Newman’s Own Organics. The Newman-O’s are most definitely a favorite. I took my life in my hands when I snapped this photo. Between the four of us I’m surprised the package lasted as long as it did… which was about an hour.

Let’s just say the Newman-O’s beat out any other cream filled chocolate cookies I’ve ever eaten. Ever.

We also love the mints. Tim immediately snagged one for work since they are only allowed hard candy at their desks, and he’s trying to not just eat candy all day. These are 5 calories a piece and a little more forgiving. The cinnamon mints are mine. No sharing. Yes, it’s like that. So if you come to my house you’re going to have to bring your own cinnamon mints.

There are so many other yummy snacks to be had from Newman’s Own Organics. They have 10 varieties of pretzels, milk and dark options for caramel and peanut butter cups. The dark chocolate peppermint cups are also divine.

Did you know that Newman’s Own and Newman’s Own Organics are two separate companies? I didn’t know that until recently. Newman’s Own Organics: The Second Generation was started in 1993 by Nell Newman and Peter Meehan. Organic snacks were sadly lacking and they wanted to do something about it. With Paul Newman’s blessing and a loan they were able to pull it off. Newman’s Own Organics contributes to the Newman’s Own Foundation which has donated more than $350 million to charitable and educational organizations throughout the world since 1982.

    Glad you found something he would eat… I haven’t had any picky eaters yet, although my kids are testing me lately by telling me they don’t like things I clearly know they like and have eaten before, lol.

    I was just thinking about the Newman’s peanut butter cups the other day. They are, by far, my favorite peanut butter cups.

  11. I love those break through moments when the kids eat something they normally wouldn’t. Newman’s Own has a ton of really good foods and I love that they have gluten free options as well!
