Not sure of the reasons for it.
As a diabetic, I too find that sweets are unpalatable. Just one bite is all I can stand.

Count me in with the buttermilk. I use it in my cornbread but wouldn't touch it by itself.

After soakinig chicken overnight in buttermilk, it makes Southern Fried Chicken taste like heaven. It has to be the acid in the milk that is doing such a great job.

I hated fig newtons with a passion when I was growing up. That tasteless dry pastry, gummy sweet filling just didn't do it for me.

About 15 years ago a friend introduced me to figs on their own and I was skeptical but tried them. Love at first bite! I eat them many ways...but not in a Newton!

The Canadian Hershey's is better and not as hard.
