I rarely buy packaged cookies but when they are given to me....well.....what's a girl to do? I have to admit that I was a little skeptical when received a package of Newtons Fruit Thins.
My kid broke into the package first. Hey! I had to have guinea pigs!
I watched as my 16 year old son took a bite and waited for "the face." To my surprise his eyebrow lifted and he said something to the effect of 'hhmm not bad' and shrugged his shoulder. Now if I translated that correctly (from the language of a teen boy to English) this means 'these are really good.' So I decided to give them a try and found that they were actually quite good. They were crisp, lightly sweet and have small bits of fruit. They make a nice little treat and go very well with a cup of herbal tea.
Everyone of my children, as well as my co-workers and one of my oldest son's friends all liked them quite a bit. Do they replace a fresh homemade cookie? No. But they are definitely worth having around for a quick treat and they will most likely find their way into my shopping basket in the near future.
