Fig rolls
Nicey replies: Oh we frequently don't like to draw clear conclusions and prefer people to make up their own minds. I would simply say stump up the cash and try a few different ones, certainly a Jacobs and a good Burtons (or one of the store own labels) that is 27% or higher fig. The Crawfords ones are hard to find and the others are all fairly exotic.

Nicey replies: Yep, I think we had him down as a mathematician. Perhaps some up and coming modern day Philosopher can change his/her name by deed poll to 'Jam-Ring'. Perhaps Mr Urpeth himself could oblige, 'Jim Jam-Ring' is lovely cheerful sort of a name isn't?

Nicey replies: Good point but I always had Newton down as a Mathematician / Physicist. Actually the Fig Newton is named after a suburb of Boston, and Figs.

Nicey replies: Alice,

That is a fantastic biscuit tin, you must be very proud. I tend to think about biscuits in space about 3 or 4 times a week at the moment, which I think is healthy. In our book (out in November) I thought about which would be the best biscuit for zero-g or micro-gravity situation. This is surely going to be an issue for the in flight catering on any future sub-orbital space planes. Inevitably I think its the fig roll.

Nicey replies: Linda,

Settle down! Burtons have most definitely not ceased trading, they merged with Horizon biscuits a while back who make all the Maryland cookies, they also make Cadbury's biscuits under licence as well as all their old favorites like Wagon Wheels, Jammie Dogers and Toffy pops. They still make their fig rolls but sell them under the Lyons brand. They also make them for Spar, Asda, Sainsburys, Co-op and Morrisons. The percentage fig can vary from 20 - 30% depending on what sort of price point the supermarkets are hoping to hit.

See the 21st Century fig fest for more info.
