I don't normally like store purchased cookies but I have to admit a fondness for Fig Newtons. As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemakers program I get the opportunity to try new things sometimes so when a chance to taste-test these new cookies came along I jumped at it.
I'm not sure if I'm happy about this or not. You see, I liked them. They are a whole-grain shortbread cookie, so not too sweet.
They have chewy bits of dried cranberry for a great tang plus a hint of orange zest that didn't have a "chemical" flavor. That is the part that surprised me the most!
So if you enjoy these flavors I think you might like these bits of crumbly goodness. Give them a try!
