[quote=Katie E;485705]Gotta be a "rain on your parade" person. Can't stand anything "fig." I think they taste like sticky, gooey sand. There's something about the texture of Fig Newtons that makes me want to chuck my cookies...Fig Newtons, for sure. I want to like them, but haven't been able to get THERE.
I'd never eaten a fresh fig in my life until we were visiting friends in Mississippi a couple of years ago. They had a big bush full of ripe figs, and I couldn't get enough of them! I've never seen them in the markets around here...I guess they don't ship well.

I like the fig Newtons. I used to find Apple Newtons, but cannot any longer. I can find Caramel Apple Newton and they are good too. Fresh are delicious as well Miss Connie. We used to make Fig preserves, with Strawberry Jello mix in them. It made the most delicious "Strawberry" Figs!

I love the Fig Newtons, but adore the Strawberrry and Apple Newtons. I've loved them for as long as I can remember. I prefer them to any chocolate chip cookie, any day of the week. Sadly, because of the high carb content, I can't eat them very often anymore. I also miss Pop Tarts for the same reason.
But yes, Newtons rule!
