The classic Fig Newton kind-of-a-cookie, or a breakfast treat bar, or I don't even know but whatever they are, I can't remember a grandparents house that was without these in their cupboards. They were delicious then and they have only gotten better.
Fig Newtons are perfect when you are looking for a delightful treat that isn't too sweet. They are always so soft and smell so fresh. I know they make a variety of flavors now, but there is nothing like the original fig. It is SO GOOD.
I've always loved fig Newtons... even when I was a kid. I don't eat regular figs, but I could eat a whole thing of these myself. My whole household loves them. I even prefer them over chocolate chip as I've gotten older because these aren't too sweet. The fig to cookie ratio is good too. Although they can be a bit mouth drying, washing them down with a bit of milk or coffee does the trick.
This is one of my all time favorite snacks! They're delicious, and even relatively healthy (compared to all my other snacks haha). They always meet my expectation and are always delicious- never disappointed!
