I think that it is quite fair to say that fig rolls are an acquired taste...and boy, have I acquired that taste! I'm holding my mother-in-law entirely responsible. After my son spent the day with her she announced, "Jack loves fig rolls doesn't he?" My response being, "Does he? I've never bought them before so I wouldn't know" He'd apparently liked them so much that he kept asking for more! So the next time I was doing the shopping I did a quick search for some, selected the Jacob's variety at 95p for a 200g packet and put them in my virtual shopping basket. When the groceries arrived a few days later Jack immediately ... Read the complete review

Fig rolls are a biscuit that really has the love or hate it factor, I have never met anyone that has these on occasions, people either have them as a favourite or wouldn't dream of eating them. With me they are a favourite and although I went for years not having them, I used to buy them regularly and do again now, the reason I went a long time without them is simply that round my way they became very hard to get hold of but with Tesco and Sainsbury now stocking the Jacobs version I am now hooked once again. It has to be the Jacobs version for me, I have found issues with all the other versions with the Tesco own brand ones being a bit soft and the ... Read the complete review

I have always loved fig rolls and used to eat them as a child. I still buy them as an adult and my husband and kids all love them too. Jacob's Fig Rolls are a combination of chopped figs surrounded by a biscuit casing. The biscuit is light golden in colour and has a flat base and rounded top. When you bite into a fig roll, the biscuit is quite soft. It actually tastes like a cross between a biscuit and pastry. The biscuit has a slightly crumbly texture, then it just melts in your mouth. The fig filling is very finely chopped (maybe even mashed), it is sweet and sticky and very more-ish. The only problem I find with this sticky centre, is it does have a ... Read the complete review

With Son still stuck in bed with his leg in plaster, I thought I would look for some different biscuits when I spotted these Jacobs Fig Rolls, in their distinct Red packaging that they have always been in. I have just noticed that instead of Jacobs written in the top left corner it has the word "Bolands". Oh no don't say I'm writting under the wrong title again( done this when I first started on Dooyoo with a review about Tiptree Jam and ended up writting about the Factory, still not sure what title it should be under!). On checking online these are still made by Jacobs, thank goodness for that!! This is the usual biscuit shape packet, maybe slightly ... Read the complete review

Jacobs Fig Rolls are a firm favourite in our household. There are many Fig Roll makers but none have perfected the art like Jacobs. The consistency of the biscuit is nothing less than perfection, crisper on the outside and softer towards the middle, the layer of fig is perfect and combined with that almost pastry style semi-sweet biscuit they are wonderful. Jacobs products are always first class, their range of sweet biscuits, semi sweet biscuits and biscuits for cheese are all top quality products. Fig rolls are not `dunkers`, if you are looking for a dunker then this isnt the biscuit for you. They are quite filling, but they have ... Read the complete review
