I love getting food packages in the mail. I just received a bag of Newton Fruit Thins as part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program.
We all know and love Fig Newtons but these are a new take on the old cookie. The bag I received was the Honey and Fig cookie. These cookies are made from whole wheat flour and have a texture similar to a shortbread cookie. They have bits of fruit in them and have a slightly spiced flavor. I wasn't quite sure just by the looks of them but I found I liked them because of the texture and because they were not too sweet.
They would pair well with coffee or tea. The cookies also come in blueberry and raspberry flavors. I love raspberries so I think I will get a bag those the next time I'm in the store.
Nutrition wise they are not too bad either. 3 cookies (and they are good sized) equal a serving. 140 calories and 45 from fat. Plus being whole grain wheat flour it makes you fee a little more virtuous eating these.
They are good. Next time your looking for cookies, pick up a bag of Newton Fruit Thins.
