Fig Newtons saved the fig

October 27, 2006

Figs are definitely B-list fruits that never get to hang at the same party as those pompous apples and oranges.  The invention of the Fig Newton came along like a leather jacket to instantly boost the popularity and respect of the fig.  Even the apple, who has dominated the American fruit pie market, is forced to ride shotgun to the fig on the Newton highway.  When was the last time that you ate a fig that wasn’t wearing a Newton costume?

The tastiness of Fig Newtons is measure in terms of fruit * kg * m / sec^2.
