The Last Fig Newton

fig newton, fig newtons, netwon, figs, fig newton cookie

This is how I feel about Fig Newtons.


This is how I feel when there are no more Fig Newtons.
What I thought were some limited-edition berry incarnation of the beloved, ol’ fig snacks is, I believe, just a new color scheme. Perhaps the Fig Newton camp is trying to play up the “real fruit” within?

Either way, this dry, sandy little treat is an oddball with a unique flavor … that sandy texture is actually what kinda makes is great. Sure, two cookies is 200 whole calories, but you feel a little better than eating a Nutter Butter or Oreo.

  1. I always felt like if there was a “healthy” packaged-cookie-treat-thing out there, it was Fig Newtons… they have real fruit! And those are the BIG cookies, anyway ;D
