Tuesday Trade Up: Newton Knockout

It seems like Fig Newtons have been around forever. Do you remember the commercials: "It's not a cookie, it's a newton"? It made you feel as though the Newtons were a fancier cookie. Well Nabsico has given a makeover to the newton and introduced Fruit Thins. These wafer cookies come in a variety of flavors and have better nutrition. So this Tuesday our Trade Up is the Nabisco Newtons.

Nabisco Newtons Strawberry NuVal = 9
Trade Up to:
Nabisco Newton Fruit Thins Chocolate Raspberry NuVal = 27
You can find these NuVal scores on the price tags, right on the shelves at Market Street.

  1. They are higher in fiber and protein and lower in sugar! Besides that, they are a yummy snack that is better for you than a high calorie cookie!
