I like fig Newtons on long runs instead of energy chews. I'll be in France in the fall through April and I'm interested in whether or not I'll be able to buy them there. I'm talking about regular grocery stores like Leclerc or Carrefour. I'm not interested in some expat shop in Paris.
Specifically, I know that I've bought knock off fig Newtons that look the same as the US version in France before, but the taste is NOTHING similar. (Actually everything was wrong, the pictures on packaging are quite deceptive.)
I'm talking about the plan old typical Newtons, not other flavors, or anything else different. I am also NOT interested in making my own.
