My husband, on the other hand, is a junk-o-holic. (Yes, I know that's not a word...But it should be! And my husband's face should serve as the very definition in the dictionary.) Dan constantly sneaks massive amounts of cookies, cakes, and other "goodies" into the cart when we go grocery shopping, even though I tell him those treats aren't so good in the long-run. I try my best to keep these snacks out of my kids' hands, but I often catch their Daddy sneaking them what I like to call a "chemical sh*tstorm in a wrapper." This does not make Mama happy!
Don't get me wrong. I do not want to completely deprive my kids of cookies, candies, and other tasty treats. These are, after all, some of the things that make childhood magical. Some of my fondest memories involve my Grandma's house, a cold soft drink, and a huge bowl of Cookies and Cream Ice Cream. So I get it...I really, really do. I just like to swap traditional snacks for more sensible ones, like the organic snacks from Newman's Own Organics.
About Newman's Own Organics :

Our Favorites :
When our package arrived, the kids were very eager to start sampling all of these organic goodies. While everything was amazing, there were a few products that definitely stood out for us. Our favorites? Definitely the cookies. We loved the Ginger-O's, the Hermits, the Vanilla Newman-O's, and the Fig Newmans the best.
Another of our favorites are the Hermits. These cookies resemble brownies in a way...They're little squares of moist deliciousness, flavored by sweet, organic molasses. These come in 3 varieties, but we received the Original Hermits. These little morsels are absolute perfection, and go great with a steaming cup of coffee or cocoa.
Last but not least, rounding out our favorites are the Fig Newmans. These are pretty self-explanatory. They're soft, cake-like cookies with a sweet fig filling. They're absolutely fantastic, and remind me of my childhood. I used to eat similar cookies, but these are so much better because they're organic! I adore these cookies and could have eaten them all myself, but sadly, my kids wanted me to share. And sharing apparently means caring.
