Sitting there last night I really fancied a cuppa tea and something nice to just nibble on. So I popped down to my local Tesco express to pick up milk and something nice. I came across these fig rolls. My partner really liked these so I popped two into my basket as I knew he would eat most of them. I'm not really sure if they would be classed as a biscuit or a cake. I found them with all the biscuit products in the store, but they have a lovely soft texture more like a cake. They were priced at only 34pence for a 200g packet, which contains around 12 fig rolls. Once you have opened the packaging you will see that the figs are ... Read the complete review

I've not had Fig Rolls since I was a child and today whilst browsing round the biscuit aisle I noticed these Tesco's own branded pack which at only 35p was half the price of the premium, Jacobs's brand. Putting a pack into my trolley and having just ate a couple along with a cup of coffee I was surprised at how good they actually tasted. Contained in a bright red packet with an illustration of its contents pictured at the end (now slightly different to the illustration above) these come in a white cardboard tray and stand on their ends in the pack. Opening the packet and taking a look at the contents these are exactly what you would expect from a Fig Roll, ... Read the complete review

Yesterday I bought some ready made sweet treats for us. One of them was Tesco's own brand Fig rolls. They come in a dark red wrapper and there are two cookies on the wrapper. The fig rolls look exactly as shown on the picture. When I open the wrapper I found that the rolls have no intensive scent. I thought the fig will have lovely scent but you can hardly smell anything. Anyway the rolls are very soft and you can eat a roll for 2 bites (or one big). About one third of the roll is the fig filling in it so it gives the whole roll a very sweet fig taste. I think the fig filling is prepared to jam. It is very thick and there are little fig seeds in it. The fig jam is very .. Read the complete review

I'm afraid in our house, we normally do cheap biscuits if I buy them. I do make my own cookies as well though, so there's normally a reasonable choice available. The last few weeks however, I've been trying to get the garden sorted out, so really haven't had as much time for baking and have fallen back on bought biscuits quite a lot, so when hubby asked me if I could buy something nicer or make some cookies, I opted for the bought option and went searching for something a little more interesting than the value nice, value ginger and value rich tea that I'd bought the previous weeks. What I came up with was a packet of these Tesco fig rolls. They were 35p ... Read the complete review

Product------ The pastry on the outside is a lot fluffier than the premium brand, I see this as a good thing, the fig is not as tough and chewy either. The premium brand seem to have flatter fig rolls whereas these are not as wide but are a fraction of a bit thicker and generously filled with fig. The pack itself is again just like the premium brand, red but with the Tesco logo in white and Fig Rolls in a paler red than the packet underneath the Tesco logo. You get around 12 rolls in a pack. Just tear open the pack and pull out the cardboard *drawer*(?) in which the fig rolls are all packed together, you may have a little bit of fun getting that first first roll out ...
