Newman's Own Organics Pretzels
The packages with their distinctive, eye-catching bags feature an American Gothic "Pa" Newman and daughter Nell. They come in 7 oz. to 8oz. bags and in rounds, sticks, nuggets, minis or thins. Since they're baked (not fried), our pretzels make a great low-fat, healthy snack. The Bavarian-Style sourdough are fat-free, while the other pretzels have only 1 to 1.5 gram fat (no trans-fat).
The Rounds come in salted, unsalted, and a unique salt-and-pepper flavor. We like to say, "They're hot, but not too hot!" Bavarian-Style sourdough come in a larger twist style. The Minis include spelt and hi-protein. Spelt has a light, slightly sweet, nutty flavor. With a stronger outer hull than either oats or wheat it seems to keep more of the nutty grain taste and good nutrients locked inside. By using yellow pea flour, we were able to create a hi-protein pretzel with 5 grams of protein per serving.
Sticks are available in salted, unsalted, salt-and-pepper variety with a salted rod-size. We find our Salted Nuggets to be travel-friendly. These are "no crumbs, no mess" pretzels that are great for cars or in the office to keep tell-tale crumbs off your desk. And for those who have requested a thicker stick, we now offer Rods. Our old style pretzel rods forced us to revise an old adage: "Don't spare the rods. Spoil the child!"
Overall Newman's Own Organics has alot of great products. I never knew that they sold organic. You will be seeing some of their products in the weeks to come.
Thanks to Newman's own organics for sending me this great package for review. My opinions are honest and i was not paid for this review.
