Today we're reviewing Trader Joe's Fig Bites. As the package says, they're "made with Turkish Figs."
A 10-ounce package costs $1.99.
A mom's (my) take: Ah, nostalgia! I've loved Fig Newtons since, well, forever. I haven't eaten one in ages, though. These Trader Joe's Fig Bites brought it all back. The cakey cookie, the lightly sweet filling....ah, memories. No artificial colors or preservatives here, but yummy, yummy memories.
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars
A teenager's (Jack's) take: Well, I'm a huge fan of anything resembling a Fig Newton, so my eyes lit up when I saw these... The breading has a pretty strong flavor, but doesn't get in the way of the figs. The fig filling tastes awesome, and although I have no idea what the difference is between Turkish and regular figs, I bet they taste exactly like them. Overall: buy many, many boxes.
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars
