Fig Newtons Are Dropping The Fig
One of my favorites snacks as a kid were Fig Newtons. Whenever we would go to grandma’s house you could count on her having a drawer full of gum and used tin foil and a cupboard full of Nilla Wafers and Fig Newtons.
I just read where the makers of Fig Newtons are now dropping the word “fig” from the name and are just calling them “Newtons”. I am sure they are doing this because they now make them in so many different flavors. They now have strawberry, apple, raspberry, Wayne and more but it will always be a Fig Newton to me.
