Newman Double Chocolate Cookies

With Halloween fast approaching you might wonder why I'd be reviewing cookies you can find in many large grocery stores or local food co-ops.  They were on sale and I had a coupon at our local Kroger.  We ate them a while back but as you may not know, I do pre-write some of the regular product reviews.

These are the chocolate sandwich cookies with a chocolate cream filling.  My family loves all the varieties of these that we've found and this wasn't our first time enjoying these, just the first time since I starting reviewing products for all of you, Sisters and Brothers.  The good thing about Newman's is that their donate some of their profits to charities we can get behind so we never feel bad about buying them.

There are 32 cookies in a bag so I do recommend you get them on sale or use a coupon if you have one.  Only 2 cookies make a serving of 130 calories composed of 1.5g saturated fat, 85mg sodium, 1g fiber, 10g sugars, and 2g protein with some iron. Not as bad as similar cookie from other manufacturers.  I thought these were delightfully chocolaty myself and the Milk Chocolate Acolyte liked them as well.  Frankly, if I've been watching what I've eaten the rest of the day, I didn't feel too bad about having two servings or four cookies.

The products are made in the USA and are certified organic.  Add that to the charity support and the taste and nutrition and I have to declare them cookies that I will certainly buy again and again.

2 cookies have 130 calories…wow this can be a problem because they look fantastic, but I think with moderation is ok ;)

Cheers,

That's so hard when things taste good, Gera. That's why I try to find things multiple people will enjoy or put things out when we have friends. Or if I must, I'll eat for a review then give them away so I'm not tempted.

I am far from perfect but I do try.
