While figs made their first commercial appearance with the introduction of Fig Newtons in 1892, their history dates back much longer. Figs were one of the earliest foods ever cultivated and remnants of the fruit have been found in the early archeological excavations. Figs are packed with vitamins and minerals, making them a health snack on their own, but also the perfect ingredient for anything that needs just a gust of sweetness.
