For this Nature’s Bakery Fig Bar review I ate an entire box of fig bars! Nature’s Bakery fig bars are 100% natural, made in the USA with stone ground whole wheat, non-GMO verified, and delicious!
I purchased a box containing 24 twin packs (8 fig, 8 raspberry, and 8 blueberry) at Costco for $8.59.
Note: This review was written before I switched to a Paleo inspired diet. I no longer eat whole grains, due to the phytic acid content.
A Natural Alternative to
Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars are a natural alternative to Nabisco Fig Newtons. The classic Nabisco Fig Newtons contain artificial flavor, high fructose corn syrup, and partially hydrogenated cottonseed oil.

I love these fig bars! The twin packs are convenient to carry with me, for on-the-go snacks. I always bring them along in my yoga bag, to eat while walking home from yoga class. They are substantial enough to hold me over for a bit.
My favorite flavors in this pack are the plain fig and raspberry. I like that the bars in the Costco pack are made with stone ground whole wheat. There are other yummy-sounding flavors listed on the Nature’s Bakery website, like Peach Apricot, Apple Cinnamon, Vanilla Fig, and Vanilla Raspberry.
Rating (4 / 5)
Nature’s Bakery fig bars earn their first star for containing all natural ingredients.
They miss out on one star for not using environmentally friendly packaging. Although the twin packs are convenient, they do create extra packaging, which will end up in a landfill.
These fig bars earn another star for effectively satisfying my craving for a snack.
Another star is awarded for being a good value for your money. The 24 pack at Costco sells for $8.59, which breaks down to 36 cents per twin pack (containing two fig bars).
A final star is awarded for being a pleasure to eat. These natural fig bars are my favorite snack right now!
Overall, Nature’s Bakery fig bars earn 4 out of 5 stars and are highly recommended!
