Sweet Snacking with Newman’s Own Organics

Who doesn’t love licorice twists?  The adults and kid in our household agree that they are one of the best treats!  Licorice has been a family favorite for quite some time, and for good reason.  These candies are chewy, fruity, and just plain delicious.  And now, Newman’s Own Organics have made this classic treat just a little bit greener with their mouth-watering line of Licorice Twists!  That’s right!  These babies are completely organic, making indulging a little more guilt-free.

1x1.trans Sweet Snacking with Newmans Own Organics

Newman’s Own Organics introduces the first sour licorice twist made with organic ingredients.  Licorice twists are the most popular kind of licorice candy and the organic sugar and sour crystals, derived from natural citrus sources, on the surface of the twists provides the special taste for the four tantalizing new flavors: Sour Strawberry, Sour Cherry, Sour Mango and Sour Apple.  With the popularity of their regular twists in Black, Strawberry, and Pomegranate, the folks at Newman’s Own Organics felt their customers would also enjoy the chance to try these sour ones that offer a different taste experience.

I recently got the chance to try their new Sour Licorice Twists.  I prefer sour candy to chocolate treats so I was quite excited about these new additions to the Newman’s Own Organics line-up.  My husband has his own sweet tooth and was especially looking forward to trying the Sour Strawberry and the Sour Mango flavors.  Although the Sour Apple and Sour Cherry sounded quite tasty as well!  Each package of Newman’s Own Organics Licorice Twists is generously sized and would be great for sharing (or not, lol)!

The sour licorice twists are showered in organic sugar and sour crystals. Among their ingredients are elderberry extract and licorice root extracts.

The candies are low in fat and sodium, and are cholesterol-free. You can eat four twists and do only 130 calories worth of damage to your diet.

Each 5-ounce package is $2.99.
