My mom use to purchase Newtons for my all the time. They were my favorite snack when I was younger. I remember when they started coming out with a variety of flavors (did I just reveal my age?) Now the famous Newton name has come out with something new: Newton Fruit Thins cookies. These are nowhere near similar to the Newtons I grew to love. Newton Fruit Thins are the perfect “hit the spot” snack that are low in fat and high in fiber.
I was sent the Blueberry Brown Sugar flavor to try and I was impressed. They are not TOO sweet and they don’t have high fructose corn syrup in them. My toddler asked me for one and I am usually reluctant to give her sweets and cookies, but I felt that the ingredients in them were appropriate for her. She enjoyed them, just as I enjoyed Newtons when I was a little girl.
My hubby and I are currently dieting and I am a firm believer in not denying yourself a little something sweet when you are watching the scale. At only about 46 calories each, these little fruit thins are a great pick me up in between meals.
You can find Newton Fruit Thins in 4 flavors: Cranberry Citrus Oat, Blueberry Brown Sugar, Chocolate Raspberry, and Fig and Honey.
