Default Do you like Fig Newtons?

Fig Newtons seem to be something you either really love or really hate! Seems everyone I know either really likes them or doesn't like them at all!

I LOVE them , I haven't had them in awhile but they were a favorite when I was a youngster !!!

My mother used to eat Fig Newtons all the time when she would be busy watching movies or TV but then Nabisco started to change the taste of Fig Newtons and then my mother quit buying them. My mother now likes the Pepperidge Farm Milano cookies instead of Fig Newtons. I don't know why Nabisco messed with Fig Newtons but I do wish Nabisco could bring the old Fig Newtons recipe back so my mom can enjoy Fig Newtons again

Really? You think the recipe changed?! Nabisco was the main brand,but I also ate the generic Fig Newtons even from the dollar stores! I found that they have to be just opened and really fresh or they lose flavor and aren't soft enough! Maybe your Mom ate Fig Newtons that weren't real fresh?

I do but they're really bad for me - so I only have one - or half of one - on rare occasions.

I haven't had them (or thought about them) in years but I used to really enjoy them so I'm sure I still would.

Sorry, raisins, figs, dates . . eeeww! As a kid I ate the outside cookie part
and threw away the rest. I'm surprised they still make them.

It's been a few years since I've had some but I used to enjoy them in moderation. I forget which flavor I liked best, probably just the original.

I love the Newton part! I love the tan color of them! I also love the fig part! I love the texture of Fig Newtons and the taste,everything. But they have to be fresh, can't even get a little stale! The strawberry ones and the other flavored ones are OK, but not nearly as good as the original Fig Newtons!
