Do “The Newton” with Big Fig
Today (Jan. 16) is National Fig Newton Day. Learn all about Fig Newtons here. For instance, did you know that the cookie is named for the town of Newton, Massachusetts? I’ve been in Newton lots of times and never knew that. Had I known, I might have been tempted to stand on one leg and sing like Big Fig while I was there.
Here are the lyrics so you can sing along with Big Fig:
Ooey gooey rich and chewy inside
Golden flakey tender cakey outside
Wrap the inside in the outside
Is it good? Darn tootin’!
Doing the Big Fig Newton
(Here’s the tricky part)
The Big Fig Newton
(One more time)
The Big Fig Newton!
