Fig Roll Biscuits

Biscuits

Very soft, almost cake-like, biscuit tube with filling of fig paste. Slightly flattened and usually formed with longitudinal ridges along its upper surface. Typically 1.5ins long, 1.2ins wide, 0.6ins thick, but somewhat variable.

Known at least since the Report of the second Guildhall school conference on diet, 1913, and mentioned in James Joyce's 'Ulysses'; "A bag of figrolls lay snugly in Armstrong's satchel."
