Ficoco (Fig and Cocoa Spread)
Look what I found at Whole Foods, and will be trying this weekend: Ficoco, which is a fig and cocoa spread. Doesn't that just sound yummy? The Ficoco website recommends trying Ficoco as a dessert topping, as a sweet sandwich spread, or in fondue. I've also seen articles here and there online suggesting pairing it with certain cheeses. The website even has a recipes section. And, perhaps most importantly, the jar is the perfect size for an unusual and not-too-expensive stocking stuffer! Whole Foods had it for $5.50 per jar.
It also doesn't hurt that Ficoco is fat free and all natural. Now then, what to try it on first.....?
What: Ficoco (Fig and Cocoa Spread)
Where: Whole Foods or other specialty food stores
