Figgypops - tart cherry fig supersnacks (Costco) by @NLi10

My parents were given this bag of amusingly named FiggyPops by a friend who shops at CostCo - apparently they are in high demand and often they don't have any left.

To me this is very similar to the Bounce energy snacks form Holland & Barrett so I wondered what the fuss was about to make these get imported especially from the USA.

They have a lot of good things in them - indeed if they were native to this country the bag would have 5 a day all over it.  It's mostly natural things (the ingredients list is mostly the word organic) and has avoided refined sugar too.  I think that's pretty good for a compulsive snack food.

They don't look like much, but they do pack a reasonable flavour punch for the size.  

For me though, I wasn't over keen.  I'm more about the seeds and the coconut than the dried fruit.  My Mother loves things like dried apricots so to her this is totally next level snacking.  If you have a hankering for dried fruit and want something that is pretty darn luxurious then you should hunt these down.  But if you are in the UK then I'm guessing it's CostCo or bust!
