A Question. An Answer. An Insight.

When queried about her choice of Newtons, she said:

I like my Newtons figgy and original.  

Proving once again that she is a woman who does, indeed, live by her stated motto:

IF SOMETHING WORKS, STICK WITH IT.

  1. I’ve Googled this, not having the foggiest (figgiest?) idea what a Newton is. I’ve found a recipe for a pastry, bit like a Danish, with fruit inside – is this it? Looks gorgeous! Not sure what the other options might be, but I love figgy stuff, so I would go with figgy too. 🙂

    1. Polly, there’s supposed to be a link when you click on the word Newton. Maybe it’s not working. A Newton is a kind of cookie that originally was only fig. Now there are other fruit flavors available.

  2. Oh, but Newtons are fruit and cake… if I recall the old ads correctly. I definitely prefer the original to the reduced fat newton. And newtons are the only way I’m willing to eat figs (at least that I’ve tried so far). But I think apple newtons ran a close second. I haven’t seen them in a while – do they still exist?

    1. I liked the apple ones, too. I don’t think that Nabisco still makes them. Which means that I am fully committed to the original ones. Unless the apple ones come back, of course.

  3. It’s been awhile since I’ve eaten a fig Newton, but I do love them. Grandma O always had them for us–good memories. Thanks!
