Food Review of Newman's Own Ginger-O's

Newman's Own Ginger-O's

I'm sure you've all tried Oreos at some point in your life. They're definitely tasty, but they're also made with high-fructose corn syrup. Newman's Own makes a healthier version of Oreos, which are yummy, but when I saw Ginger-O's, I had to try them. I'm a huge fan of anything ginger.

Want to see how the Chocolate Newman-O's and Ginger-O's compare? Then


Here's a picture of what they look like. They're basically made with organic unbleached flower, organic molasses, organic sugar, ground ginger, and nutmeg. There are no hydrogenated oils or other unnatural ingredients, so when you or your children are craving a little treat, you can feel good about eating these.

Check out the nutritional info. There isn't a huge difference between these two, except that the Ginger-O's contain more sodium, slightly more saturated fat, and slightly fewer calories. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the chocolate Newman-O's have 1g of fiber. I mean, I didn't expect to see any from a cream-filled cookie, but out of these two, I would have thought that the Ginger-O's would have more. I guess the chocolate O's are a little better for you, but since cookies in general aren't exactly healthy, I'd still choose the Ginger-O's because they are so very tasty.
