Figamajigs!

HLing | Sep 28, 200706:57 PM     11

Found these in the energy bar section in NYC's Fairway -

1)Chocolate covered Fig candy, which are bite-size chocolate covered fig bits that look like M & M's but slightly bigger.

2) Chocolate Covered Fig Bar (Dark chocolate)

For all those times that I see candy bars and fig bars (or M&M's for that matter) in a store, get a craving, buy them..to finally eating them, non have met my imagined sense of satisfaction. The candy bars these days don't taste like real food.

So, it is strange, but most wlecomed, that I picked up these two Figamajigs candies, and found that from beginning to end, the whole crave-to-buy-to-consuming process, I felt that I actually got what I craved! Definitely a winner for those who love dark chocolate. For those who love fig bars, these are less "seedy' than the usual fig bar.

The Chocolate covered Fig bars actually taste more like a really rich and tasty browny.

The chocolate covered figs pieces taste like a good version of those jumbo chocolate covered cherries.

These, to me, are the real "energy bars". Deliciousness always gives me a boost!
