When I was living in San Francisco for a few months over the summer, I came across these delicious chocolately fig bars called, “Figamajigs” and I fell in love. They kind of made me break the bank though, since they were close to $2 each and were quite small…and I bought a lot to bring back to Canada with me. Oi. Anyway, they are no where to be found here, which may be for the best due to me spending way too much money on them. I came across a similar product, but it was $26 for 20 small bars and I’m not really in a position to spend that kinda money, even on mighty tastey chocolate. I don’t know why it took me so long to think of just making my own simple little figgy chocolates, but I finally did and it -almost- solves my longing for the Figamajigs, haha! Definitely a cheaper solution.
