A Newton is a fig or an apple or even a cinnamon raisin nut, but it's still a Newton by Nabisco. This newest version retails for $1.79 for a 16-oz. package of cookies.
Kay Hadley: "Our family really liked these new cinnamon, raisin, nut cookies. To me, the filling was quite dry and very cinnamony. But I'm sure we'll buy these again."Don Russell: "Nabisco could just as easily have named these cookies Raisin Newtons. Raisin paste is the primary ingredient in these cookies, which gives them a fruity yet dry taste. Although I liked these cookies if for no other reason that I like all cookies, I am not convinced that Cinnamon Raisin Nut Newtons will still be marketed by Nabisco a year from now."
Judy Slack: "Since we don't like anything Newton, we really didn't have any buttons punched. If you like Fig Newtons, you'll probably like these."
Edyth Jensen: "We tried the Cinnamon Raisin Nut Newtons and really enjoyed them. One of the differences my children enjoyed about these - the raisins are ground.
Linda C. Tingey: "Cinnamon Raisin Nut Newtons were awful. My kids wouldn't even eat them. We like regular Fig Newtons and the apple version but this one we wouldn't buy again."
Conclusion: It's faint praise for Nabisco's newest Newton or a great big "Bah Humbug!"
