    Yes... I eat figs sometimes but I make sure they do not have added sugar. The black mission figs almost always have sugar added.

    Made In Nature Organic Calimyrna Figs, Sun-Dried and Unsulfured, 7-Ounce Bags (Pack of 6): Amazon.com: Grocery & Gourmet Food

    How do I eat this? Take it out of the shell and just eat? (btw that's a ton of sugar and carbs)

    Yup! That's what I do. Figs also go really well with Manchego cheese.

    I actually have never had dried figs. I limit my consumption of dried fruit. It sticks to my teeth and it's also a really concentrated source of sugar. I love fresh figs though. They should be coming in season soon!

    @secretlobster: I've never had Manchego cheese, but have wanted to try it since I heard about it a few months ago. They've been pushing it hard at the Publix stores around here. It's $14/lb though, so I've been passing on it. Is it worth giving it a try?

    Sooo worth the try.

    With dried fig (or Adriatic Fig Spread) it would make my top 10 for a *last meal* item. Seriously. It's that good.

    Pull 'em off the tree, they are amazing.

    I figure anything that you can yank off a branch and munch on without worry is primal. That's what Grok would do.

    I tasted Manchego cheese for the first time at Publix this weekend. Seriously! This may be the best cheese ever developed. <3

    I'm going to buy some next trip to the store.

    Slice your fresh figs, line in greased pan (I prefer glass) sprinkle w/ balsamic vinegar, bake @ 350 for 20 mins or longer until caramelized,
    eat w/ your Menchego....Divine!!
