Fig Bars by nature's bakery at Costco

I received a request to review Fig Bars, a new product at Costco.  

Bob and I are not great fig bar fans, we want more protein in our snacks, but Henry, age 5, liked these and asked for more. 

The cookies are similar to Fig Newtons, although not as sweet, which to me is a good thing. I believe the Fig Bar cookies are larger than Fig Newtons; the Fig Bars come in three flavors: strawberry, blueberry and fig.  

Bars are all natural, made with whole wheat, no trans fats. Thirty 2 oz. packs are $8.99 at my Nashville Costco.  I asked my friend Rose, a nutritionist, what she thought of the nutritional label. She said:

"It would be fine as part of a healthy diet, low fat and low protein.  15 grams of carbohydrates are considered one serving so this is over that...."

  1. They're good, but expensive. For my money, I'd just buy whole grain Fig Newtons.
