Company/Product Description (direct from website)

‘Great tasting food that happens to be organic.’

That’s what we kept in mind when we created our products. We focus on the kinds of products we loved as kids, but take them one step further by using the highest quality of available organic ingredients.

We find that people really want to know how the ingredients are grown and processed on the way to their grocer’s shelf. When people see how much organic foods have improved since the early days of packaged ‘health’ foods, we hope they’ll try other organic food products.

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.

Certified organic by Oregon Tilth. Ingredients have been grown on farms that have not used artificial fertilizers or pesticides for three years or more. The farms and processors have been certified by an independent third party. Kosher certification by Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America, 333 Seventh Avenue, New York.

The front of each product features an American Gothic “Pa” Newman and daughter Nell in appropriate costume with an accompanying legend on the package; each variety has a color band or colored packaging for easy identification.

My Review


I am always introducing healthy and organic food to my family, as we make the transition into mostly organic products.  I was very familiar with the Newman’s Own Organic brand, as I see their products frequently at my local grocery store. So when I had the opportunity to review and share their food with my readers, I was ecstatic!

I have to tell you, there wasn’t a single item they sent me that my family didn’t love! Aside from the benefits of the food being organic, the food was also light and full of flavor. All of the items that were flavored contained the perfect amount of taste in it, especially the cookies and chocolates! It was very reassuring to know that my family could indulge on such things as cookies and chocolate, without worrying about unhealthy ingredients.

I am overall extremely impressed with all aspects of this company! They were a delight to work with and they offer a great variety of food items. We will most definitely continue to enjoy their products in our home.

Newman’s Own Organics asked me to choose my four favorite snacks from the box they sent me, that was probably the hardest decision I’ve had to make in awhile! I was finally able to narrow my favorites down to just four, all of which I can not begin to explain how scrumptious they are! The Hint O’ Mint cookies were delicious and contained the perfects amount of mint and it complimented the chocolate cookies perfectly. The bite size orange chocolate chip cookies were a good size for my children and immediately became their favorite snack out of all the products. Once again, they managed to offer the perfect hint of orange flavor in the cookies! My husband and I adore orange flavored candy, so it was no surprise when we found the orange dark chocolate to me mouth watering good! Lastly, the sour strawberry licorice lasted five minutes as we were drooling over its amazing taste and sugar coating. I included a close up picture down below to give you an idea of how yummy this snack is!

Orange Dark Chocolate

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.

  • Dark Chocolate
  • Super Dark Chocolate 70% Cocoa
  • Mocha Milk Chocolate
  • Milk Chocolate
  • Espresso Dark Chocolate
  • Orange Dark Chocolate

Sour Strawberry Licorice

Newman’s Own Organics introduces the first sour licorice twist made with organic ingredients. Licorice twists are the most popular kind of licorice candy and the organic sugar and sour crystals, derived from natural citrus sources, on the surface of the twists provides the special taste for our four tantalizing new flavors: Sour Strawberry, Sour Cherry, Sour Mango and Sour Apple. With the popularity of our regular twists in Black, Strawberry, and Pomegranate, we felt our customers would also enjoy the chance to try these sour ones that offer a different taste experience.

  2. Newman’s Own makes delicious and healthy food items! I have tried their pretzels, cookies licorce and chocolate. I can say that everything that I have tried is truly enjoyable. I have never gotten a product that I did not like. They also make very good salad dressing that my family loves! And what a good way to help by buying their products because they give back the money to charity!

  3. Your photos are beautiful and the description(s) left my mouth watering. Organic food that is delicious appeals to me and I’m impressed at the philanthropic efforts of the Newman company.

  4. I didn’t know Newman’s had all these products! I’ve never seen apricots, mints, licorice, hermits or those orange chocolate chip cookies. I like their cookies, would like to try the rest.

  5. I love newmans own!! Organic is important to me and their high quality products are all awesome- i especially love their olive oils. The hermit cookies are on my grocery list now!

  8. I love the shift towards organics and am trying to do the same thing in my family. I had no idea they had so many products out there as I have not seem them in my local store. Thanks for all the great info on them!!

  9. I have tried the Signature Series Chocolates that they have, but I would like to try so many other products. I didn’t know that he had this large of a product line. What I have tried has been so good and tasty that if the others are half that good it will be great.. Sure do wish to win this so I an give more items a try!

  10. I like supporting the organic food movement–and these snacks sounds particularly tasty!
    I would especially like to try the Ginger-O’s!

  11. i am trying to find the coffee i think walmart has it, i want to try it, i never even thought to try it out, but read reviews on it and sounds amazing, great products and great review thanks a bunch

  12. Thank you for the great review. I have tried a few of Newman’s Own Organics, and definitely liked what I tried, but never knew they made that many great products. From the pictures, it looks like they make a healthy and organic version of all of the things people like to eat and snack on, that is usually considered “junk food”. I love that Paul Newman started Newman’s Own foundation and that all profits from the business go to charity.

  13. Wow. These all look amazing. My favorite sweet combo ever is chocolate and mint, but I’ve never seen these Newman’s Own sandwich cookies!! Need to find and try.

  14. not only are they organic which is a five star bonus for me, but its a company worth supporting because they’re good to their workers! I only wish the stores near me carried more of their products… i buy their sauce and fig newmans all the time!
    except we’re big seinfeld fans and my husband says newman the seinfeld way! 🙂

  15. I had no idea about their foundation! that’s great! and of course, love the fast that they are organic! Didn’t know they had a mint cookie OR had mints!

  16. I love Newmans Products I Love That They Donate Their Proceeds and the food is always great.

  17. I remember way back when Newman first came out with his pasta sauce and would go towards donations. I am amazed at his growth since then. Will definitely purchase more products with this incredible line. Thanks so much!

  18. I have been buying Newman’s Own products for years, and have yet to be disappointed. My own personal favorite is their Sockarooni Spaghetti Sauce. Delicious! I feel good buying Newman’s Own products because they use such good, natural products, and the good they do!

  19. Like many others I’m trying to eat more organic. I also have a big sweet tooth! Knowing that I can find good sweets from a company I respect that is are also organic is really great!

  20. Great review! I have not tried any of Newmans Own Organics yet,but would love to.I would love to try the Sour Strawberry Licorice it sounds so good.

  21. I haven’t seen the Newman’s Organic chocolate bars or the licorice in the stores yet, but I am sure I would love the dark chocolate and my hubby would love the licorice. He loves every flavor of the Newman-O’s cookies.

    My cats love the Newman’s Organic dry cat food. 🙂
