“ Brand: Sykiki / Type: Other Fruits „
I'm extremely keen on dried figs these days and browse around the local shops looking for the most appealing prices, much like England, Poland is not really known for it's production of figs, so it's companies from warmer climes that are usually the retailers, I've been making notes on what I think are the tastiest from a range of companies from the Mediterranean and Middle East that export worldwide.
Sykiki Dried Figs come from Greece and are packaged in Thessaloniki and they seem to be one of the cheaper brands, packaged in plastic, they come in a typical fig wheel and you get about 15-20 in a packet.
I appreciate the fact that fruit comes in all shapes and sizes and it's not natural when all the figs conform into a little fig army of the same shape but hese seemed slightly chewy and the insides not as tender or as tasty as could be.
I don't think I just got a bad batch either because I've bought this brand a couple of times and they always pale in comparison to certain other fig dealers. I'm always curious to know how many calories are actually in figs but because these are packaged and sent in from Greece, it's impossible to find such info.
