When the sales clerk at Dollywood finished wrapping my purchase, it looked like a burrito or sub sandwich. In fact, it was a jar of Fig Spread. My wife spotted the product as I was reading the ingredients on a jar of fig preserves. We bought the one that did not contain high fructose corn syrup. It does contain white grape juice concentrate, figs, pectin, citric acid, and lemon juice concentrate.
For Christmas, my wife gave me a jar of Aunt Berta’s Fig Preserves. Its ingredients are figs, sugar, pectin, citric acid, and elderberry. I’ve already started enjoying it.
My wife and I stopped off at a Whole Foods Market in Northern Virginia on the day after Christmas. We needed to pick up a few things to bring to my mother’s house for dinner. I also bought something for myself, which I will probably save for Super Bowl Sunday. It’s a Mitica Fig Almond Cake.
I also bought two Holiday Bixby Bars. The price was discounted after Christmas. Although they had two flavors available, I chose to get two of the Figgy bars, which have dark chocolate, sweet fig, walnut, and gingerbread spice. I’ll have to eat the candy bars before Lent begins on February 18.
