Featured snack: Fig Newton (by Nabisco)
Rating: 14 “It’s not a cookie, mother, it’s a Newton”s
Figs are such an unlikely fruit to include in a snack. In fact, I think the only other time that I ever had a fig was once at a fancy party and it was wrapped in bacon. Or maybe that was a date. No, it was a party.
I’m tempted to end this post after that totally amazing joke but I feel it is my duty to continue long enough to let you know that you shouldn’t be tempted by nostalgia or any other force to eat these ever. They are really gross. It’s not that the concept of the Newton is so bad - it’s actually really great - it’s that figs are gross and grainy and don’t belong in a shitty Nabisco cookie.

Featured snack: Wheat Thins Crunch Stix (Fire Roasted Tomato flavor)
Rating: 36 yawns
Review: Wheat Thins are good but let’s face it, they are boring. Like most good crackers, their value comes from their adaptability. This being the case, it makes no sense to make them into a different “fun” shape, put them in a new “fun” package, and sprinkle them with an exciting “fun” flavor. Not fun. Still boring. Also, it’s been a long time since I’ve heard a flavor name as bullshitty as “Fire Roasted Tomato”. C’mon Nabisco!
