Now before you start saying, “What? They’re reviewing another cookie?” let me simply state – there is virtually no chance that I will ever turn down the opportunity to review a cookie. I love cookies. If it is sweet and delicious, then it gets an “edible” mark in my book and I will happily share my thoughts with you all. The fact that the Newtons Fruit Thins have 8g of whole grains and just 140 calories per serving (per 3 cookies) – well, that just makes my health-conscious side feel better.
About Newtons Fruit Thins
For more than a century, Newtons has been one unique cookie – wholesome goodness made with real fruit and a taste all its own. Now, with the creation of Newtons Fruit Thins, Nabisco is breaking the mold again with a cookie unlike any other with real fruit in unexpected combinations packed into a thin and crispy cookie.
The four delicious varieties include
- Cranberry Citrus Oat
- Blueberry Brown Sugar
- Chocolate Raspberry
- Fig & Honey
And because Newtons Fruit Thins are made with real fruit and 8 grams of whole grain per serving you can feel great knowing you’re having a deliciously wholesome snack.
I have never had a cookie that tasted like the Blueberry Brown Sugar Newtons Fruit Thins. I have had blueberry muffins that tasted like the Blueberry Brown Sugar Newtons Fruit Thins – but not a cookie. The Blueberry Brown Sugar Newtons Fruit Thins taste so much like blueberry muffins, that I would happily eat them for breakfast or as a snack. In fact, I think I like them even better than the muffins because I love the crunchy texture of the Newtons Fruit Thins.
Newtons Fruit Thins are baked with real fruit, which is proven by the actual pieces of blueberry that I can taste while I eat the cookie. They have just the right amount of brown sugar to make it sweet but not too sugary. Eating the Blueberry Brown Sugar Newtons Fruit Thins reminds me of eating the crispy crust of a blueberry scone. The Newtons Fruit Thins are also a great size – they aren’t too small or too large, but a nice in-between size that is about 2.5″ wide.
In addition to having 8g of whoe grains, Newtons Fruit Thins are made with “real” ingredients – such as flour and sugar. They’re also naturally flavored; dried blueberries and brown sugar are even listed as ingredients!
They’ve got crunch, they’ve got flavor, and they aren’t loaded with artificial whatevers. Newtons Fruit Thins are definitely a great option for family snacking. (That is, assuming I’m willing to share.)
