Berkeley Bowl Fig Newtowns: Berkeley Bowl sells an assortment of fig newtown-style cereal bars in their bulk section, from apricot to raspberry to, well, figs. I sampled both the raspberry and fig cookies and prefer the tart sweetness of the raspberry to the more ordinary, but still decent, fig. They're more dense and substantial than traditional fig newtowns, both in terms of the texture of the soft cookie and the fruit-chew-like interior. The fruit flavor overall is far superior than what you will find in other packaged versions of this classic snack. 3.0/5.0
