Fig Newtons - do you like them?

I was eating a big Fig Newton & it said the "original" kind. So I guess all these years I've been eating the non-original kind! But while I was eating it & spitting out the really hard seeds that's in the fruit stuff, I thought wow. These are kind of gross. But I actually like them okay. Wouldn't say I love them & they're definitely not my top favorite sweet, but I like them. So I thought about asking if you guys like them? Do you? Do you? Huh?

I love Fig Newtons!! I always forget they exist, then get wicked amped when I remember. I like to snap the seeds between my teeth. I'm a fan of the original ones over the other flavors.

Figs gross me out. I really try to avoid anything that contains the digestive tract of another animal (like oysters etc) for ick reasons, which includes the fig plant. They're allowed to have like 13 bug parts to 100g of fig or something like that.

My boyfriend likes them, though!

I like them, but I miss the apple they used to have ages ago. I liked those more.

I haven't had one in ages, but they are good! I remember my Dad always had a special bag of them - it was about the only cookie he ever ate.

Yes, love them! Now I want some I've tried store brands before but they just aren't the same, gotta get the real ones!

I love figs. Fig Newtons aren't my favorite, but I'll eat fresh figs all day long. There are so many different kinds of figs, too!

I don't like Fig Newtons, but I like other flavors of Newtons. I currently have Sweet Peach Apricot Newtons and they're really amazing! Plus no seeds!

Awesome! I did not expect many people to say they liked them, so it's nice to see I'm not a total weird-o. Lol. I definitely expected most responses like the one below yours. Lol. Glad to see you, me, gsfanatic, Joolie, Gary, Sammi and some others like em. When I got to thinking about the weird filling, I thought ew. It seems like this stuff would be gross any other way because it reminded me of some type of really old fruit/jelly substance, but for some reason, those things are enjoyable! I liked the original one I had today too! It was my first time having one that said "original." I think I've tried different flavored fillings though, unless it just strangely tasted different to me earlier when eating that "original" one. Lol. I haven't ever met a Fig Newton that I didn't enjoy though, but I wouldn't choose them over some other dessert, but I certainly enjoy them when they're around.

Hate the seeds though! They hurt my teeth and they get stuck in them. Lol.

Gary -- I knew they made different flavors! So I'm not crazy. Does this mean they don't have apple anymore? Well that really sucks!

Hillys -- LOL that sounds like me! Ha Ha. Anything tastes good if you eat it at the right moment.

Zombirella -- lol! Glad to hear you like em' too. My exact thought when I finished typing this discussion topic was "crap. I bet this is going to make somebody crave Fig Newtons!" Lol. I just knew there'd be someone who did. I hate when I'm having cravings and see photos or talk about food that sound so delicious, especially if it's late at night & I have nothing that resembles it in the house. Err! That is annoying because then I won't be able to stop thinking about said delicious food until I get one/some/whatever. Lol. Thanks for the tip too. I've never had any other than the "real" ones, so I'll store that info away for future use. "Do not buy the store brand Fig Newtons. They aren't as good as the Real ones."

FlashFushcia -- Hey, those sound good! I didn't know they made other types that weren't Fig Newtons. I might have to try some of those flavors.

LOL Twelve -- Sorry about that. But at least you'll be enjoying some Fig Newtons tomorrow

I love them; they are one of my favorite cookies. I only like the original ones. The other fruit flavors are just not the same.

They are ok. Not my first choice, but surprisingly decent.

Bluh! I hate Fig Newtons. They always taste old or stale...even when they aren't. And I love the fruit, so it's not that I hate figs.

I love these, especially when hiking or doing other really physical activities. The burst of energy is a welcome addition to this little snack.

Yep, this exactly. I don't eat them since I found out the crunchies in them are likely bug body parts.

I like them, but I must admit that it's been a long time since I've had one. I wonder why?
