I love fig bars! For some reason I always have. I used to buy Fig Newtons or the off brand kind and “eat them by the sleeve” as comedian Brian Regan says. Watch his sketch on YouTube.
I am also a label reader. I like knowing what’s in my food-well, sometimes. I have noticed many fig bars have high fructose corn syrup and refined wheat flour as main ingredients, making them cheaper, but less nutritious. I wanted to find some healthier fig bars. I have been unsuccessful until now.
Since Gription Gear is all about awesomeness, I had to share my new found love with all of you: Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars. I must give credit to my awesome wife for finding these. She found them on a recent Costco trip and bought me a box to try.
There are more flavors than just regular fig as seen in this photo.
These are a great snack for your work day, or your next outdoor adventure. I will be taking them with on hikes and camping trips since they are nutritious and a great source of energy. They are also a healthy snack for kids. My three year old son likes them so they have been kid tested and approved.
Buy them, try them, and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
