BEYOND VEGAN: The Fig Foster

· 238 words · about a minute

As a children many of us remember the soft gooey sweet Fig Newtons that came in a pack with two rows. The downside to those yummy "treats" were the number of calories, sugar and preservatives contained in this nostalgic snack. The other day I was out shopping for foods on the Nutritional Guide when I came across a small carton of Black Figs, so I decided to make Fig Newtons... but decided to call them Fig Fosters, because back then I never really knew who Newton was.
