Tastemaker: Fig & Honey Newtons Fruit Thins


As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I recently received a package of Fig & Honey Newtons Fruit Thins to try. Though made by the company that produces Fig Newtons (it's not a cookie, it's fruit and cake!), these thins are quite different than their iconic cousins. Instead, as their name suggests, they are thin, crispy cookies with bits of real fruit and a sweet taste.


Thus far I've enjoyed a couple of the crispy cookies with a cup of green tea as a mid-morning snack, as well as an additional mix-in to my bowl of Greek yogurt at breakfast time. Though I typically don't purchase packaged cookies from the grocery store, I could see myself buying these as a treat for a long road trip when I need something sweet (but relatively wholesome) to eat.
