National Fig Newton Day

Whether you're a devoted fan or not, the undeniable popularity of Fig Newtons has endured for over a century, earning them a dedicated day. January 16th marks National Fig Newton Day, and we bet you're eager to indulge in a few to join in the celebration. The origin of Fig Newtons traces back to the 19th century when physicians recommended increasing the intake of biscuits and fruit as a digestive remedy. The advent of fig rolls gained popularity, and in 1891, Charles Roser devised a machine to infuse fig paste into dough. Following various business transactions, the fig roll eventually became a Nabisco product, rebranded as the well-known "Fig Newton." So, seize the moment and get figgy with it!
