There is a new kind of Newtons on the market.
The Sunday paper had a coupon to save a $1.00 on these Fruit Thins, so I cut it out just in case they happened to be affordable.
I forgot all about them until I came across a display in the supermarket, and they also had a $1.00 coupon attached to them as a promotion.
Since this brought the price down even more, a package of the Raspberry Chocolate variety made its way into the cart.
With two grams of fiber per serving of three thins, I figured there could be worse things out there to have as a treat.
And to me, one of the most important things, there were no hydrogenated fats in them.
So, how did they taste?
I really liked them, but the the boys didn't want any more than their first ones - they were not impressed.
I thought they satisfied the need for crunch and chocolate.
They were not too sweet - that's what I think the boys didn't like - they really like the sugar.
There were quite a few raspberry seeds in them too, which they also didn't care for.
Would I buy them again?
You bet, and I just love the fact that they are all mine!
