I much prefer the complex taste of whole grains over white stuff... just a personal preference though. If you are the type that loves wonder bread and sprite and think applebee's, ruby tuesdays, and golden corral are the best restaurants in the country, then you probably should stick to regular fig newtons. Oh, and enjoy a shorter life full of medical ailments.

At first I wasn't sure if I would like them, but now I can't imagine going back to the original fig newtons! The whole grain is awesome!

Grotesque? I find the crust on the traditional Newton gummy and bland. I'll take the trend of less processed ingredients over the additive laden crap sold under the "low fat" and "sugar free" banners any day.

I am eating them right now, and they taste great!

What?! So you're against eating grains that haven't been stripped of all nutritional value? The whole grain crust isn't bland and gooey enough for you? Talk about your blechh. If you're going to eat a sugar bomb do yourself the slightest favor and eat the whole grain version. Bon appetit!

Fig Newtons have always been yuck in my book. These are even yucker.
