Did you know that January 16 is National Fig Newton Day?
Did you know? Fig rolls were handmade and locally produced in the U.S. thanks to British immigrants.
Then, in 1891, Philadelphia baker and fig-lover Charles Roser invented and patented the machine that inserted fig paste into a thick pastry dough.
Soon after, the Kennedy Biscuit Company purchased Roser’s recipe and began mass production. In 1891, they produced the first Fig Newtons baked at the F.A. Kennedy Steam Bakery.
The company named the treat after the town of Newton, Massachusetts.
Figs are one of the oldest known fruits in the world and are the fruit mentioned most often in the Bible. Some even believe it was this fruit that was plucked by Eve and not an apple.
