What ever happened to the Fig Newton? It is delicious, original, and somewhat healthy! It reminds me of my childhood. But why is it not receiving the recognition it deserves?
It has a unusual shape, is soft yet the texture of the jam gives you a small surprise when you bite into it. To me it is delightful and delish. It is a pastry filled with Jam. Who doesn't like that!! And it comes in a assortment of flavors, although my favorite is the plain old fashion original flavor.
I only know one other person who favors this yummy treat with me. I just don't understand why people aren't stocking these in their cupboards.
In any regard I would like to give a shout out to Charles M. Roser who created this brilliant little snack back in 1891. Thank You Mr. Roser, may the Fig live on forever:)
