Tesco Fig Rolls
Advantages: Great tasting, not very fattening, filling fig rolls!
Disadvantages: A little bit of mess when you eat them!
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 but you are ready to go when it is.
I would say dirt cheap, but buying a bag of soil from B&Q will cost more (soil is practically the same as dirt). So I shall say fig roll cheap. The premium brand is 68p and these are 35p, very nearly half price for a 200g pack and I am sure the premium brand is of comparable weight.
