Do You Like Fig Newtons?

Today is National Fig Newton Day, and I want to know what you think of the snackable cookies. As a child I really enjoyed them, but haven't had one in years. I might have to remedy that today, how about you?

I like Fig Newtons, but I'd rather have fresh figs. Or whole dried figs!

Sometimes. I never think about them until I'm offered one. I eat it, like it, and wonder why...

Yeah I love em - grew up with em. Never know what the heck a fig was. Now I found a healthier fig newton at WF market - no wheat, no fat, no sugar but tastes the same as the original.

I LOVE fig newtons. I gobbled them up as a kid. Never had a fresh fig until I was in my 20s, sad but true.

Yum! The apple ones are so good! I love them all! Too bad they have such a high caloric content.

Gee, they have their own day?? I'd better go out and buy some. I LOVE them fresh out of the package, but lose interest in them once the air hits them and they get a bit drier (dryer?).

I never really thought that people didn't like them. They've always been a staple and are super yummy! I do only like the Fig ones though the Strawberry are too sweet.

I always have them for a snack after I donate blood. The mini ones made with whole grains are my favorite.
