It seems quite often these days that a new product pops up at our local Trader Joe’s, and we’re always happy to give it a try. But this “new” product is a bit of a paradox – it’s new, yet so very not new.

But that’s not always a bad thing – sometimes improvement is the best form of flattery.

Point is, these Fig Bites are no doubt familiar looking – they are almost identical to the ones you likely grew up with. The taste is fairly close as well, though we noted that the TJ’s version tasted a bit more premium all around.

For example, the outer pastry seemed more dense and flavorful to us, and the fig center had a more balanced sweetness with a subtle crunch – largely due to the fig seeds within.

Yes, some bites were grittier than others, but that’s to be expected.

We enjoyed pairing our Fig Bites with a spot of bold espresso for a lazy afternoon treat. It was the perfect chance to wind down, reminisce and ponder how these little guys are made (it’s actually quite a fascinating process – see below).

Even though these new Fig Bites are not all that new, they’re still well rated in our book, and we plan to keep them on hand to add some subtle sweetness to our day.
