Newman’s Own Organic Mints

mints_new

Normally i’m not big on candy, usually full of gross sweetners, artificial flavors, colors, dyes, etc. But, coming accross Newman’s Own Organic mints, my mind changed. I like the conveinence of mints-something to stop me from munching or to freshen up after a meal or snack. Newman’s Own is a trustyworthy brand that delivers excellent products, and donates money to many charities. What a great company!

So, back to the mints, they come in four flavors. Cinnamon, Ginger, Wintermint, and Peppermint, and come in tin form or roll form.The tin cans are SO CUTE! So I tried the ones from the tin. I’m a cinnamon kinda girl. I used to love cinnamon trident gum when i was little, (but stopped chewing it because of the artificial junk), so i was excited to try these.

Cinnamon-YUM! These were AWESOME! At first i was a little scared to try it because of the word HOT on the bottom (and the tiger on the tin can!!), but not to worry at all. They aren’t spicy-they are actually sweet. My mom said they were “perfect”, and i agree. They have just the right amount of cinnamon flavor and are sweet and satisfying.

Ginger- whew! these sure have a kick to them. At first it tastes almost spicy. DO NOT CHEW! My dad had one and he chewed it right away, which made it overpowering. I, on the other hand, sucked on it slowly and let the flavor come out. I liked them, and people who are fans of ginger will LOVE them. I think they would be good to suck on when you have a cold or are sick because of the ‘kick’ they have.

Wintermint-this one tastes like spearmint. It has a nice flavor to it, not overpoweringly minty, but still a definite breath freshener. I liked these- and normally i’m not a “spearmint” kinda girl!

Peppermint-these taste like your typical peppermint. They leave a cool, refreshing taste in your mouth, and have  a slight sweetness to them as well. I liked these 2nd best (cinnamon is first, of course!)

Three mints have 10 calories, 0 fat, 2 carbs and no protein.

The only thing that puzzled me a little bit was the corn syrup. I thought corn syrup was bad? Either way- it’s organic. So that makes me feel better popping one of these mints in my mouth compared to any OTHER mints out there. 🙂 So if you need a breath freshener (or just like to suck on them when your bored…hahha like me!), definitely give these a try. And the tins are so cute, you’ll keep coming back for more!

The Organic Ingredients…
Organic Sugar, Gum Arabic, Natural Flavor, Organic Corn Syrup, Rice Bran Extract.

True Lemon Naturally Sweet Lemonade Mix

lem2

Water. So good for us. Sometimes it just hits the spot and is refreshing as it, but sometimes we need to step it up a notch. So…

Finally! A healthy alternative to Crystal Light without artificial sweetners, colors or preservatives! True Lemon Naturally Sweet lemonade mix packets takes the cake! It sweetened naturally with Truvia, which is sweetner with natural Stevia, and evaporated cane juice. Like Crystal Light On-the-Go packets, it has 5 calories per serving (2 servings in a stick). It also has 25% daily vitamin C needs.

As for the taste- delicious! You can make it as light or strong as you want, but it has a good, strong lemony taste. It tastes genuine or real, which is, in my opinion, how lemonade SHOULD taste. It tastes like you actually squeezed some lemons, added water and some sweetner and viola! Lemonade. I hope True Lemon comes out with more flavors like lime or orange, because they also make crystalized lemon, lime and orange packets for seasoning/teas/ etc.

Not many ingredients in here-that’s a good thing!

Citric Acid, Evaporated Cane Juice, Lemon Oil, Lemon Juice, Rebiana (Truvia), Guar Gum, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Natural Color.

My First Post

Hello, everyone.

I’m starting this blog to review all natural/organic food products and to “share the love”. I’m tired of everyone ragging on healthy food saying it tastes gross or like “cardboard” just because it’s good for you! So here’s my chance to review all the healthy products out there-don’t worry I’ll let you know which ones to avoid and which ones to buy and enjoy frequently!
