These may be the best-tasting grocery raisins you've ever had. Nothing even approaches these for their flavor, texture, and all those Newman Company extras that aficionados like me adore. (We're talking organic ingredients, environmentally sound production, profits donated to the needy, and supporting the goals of one of the most compelling actors of all time, and a heck of a nice guy as well.)
But back to the food at hand.
These are plump, JUICY raisins, startlingly different from the usual fare. I don't know how they do it, but Newman's Organic California Raisns retain their natural flavor; pleasant scent, and a succulent mouth feel that one expects from fine port. One "secret" may be the ingredients: Raisins. C'est tout. Make that ingredient, in fact. THe only thing missing is Newman's usual story on the package--usually some wild, adventurous story shedding light on the product, and featuring Mr. Newman as raconteur-narrator. Perhaps with raisins this classically delicious, we must resort to the Latin --"Res Ipsa Loquitor" -- the thing speaks for itself. Unbelievable.

Based on these glowing reviews, I decided to try these instead. What a major disappointment. They are quite small and relatively dry. They also do not have a great taste.
I am not going to mention the name of the other brand for fear everyone will think I work for them, but they are ten times better than these. They are plump and juicy and the flavor sends your taste buds into a frenzy. They have no chemicals added to them.
There are many Newman's Own products that I buy on a regular basis. This just isn't going to be one of them.
Maybe I got a bad batch. Who knows. I just know they will not get eaten.
My comparison is between Newman's Own and three other non-organic brands, including a house brand. Sun-Maid and Dole and both quite good, and Dole is often excellent. The house brand is less expensive but not as tasty.
None are organic, though.
This brand is one of only a few organic farmed raisins available, so it's easy to make the choice for sustainability reasons. (Go to Sonoma sometime and see what's required to do organic grape growing). Some boxes have a little more stem in them than one is used to from Dole, but I can overlook it.
I'm happy that it's on the market.
