    Is there a shortage of said consumables? :angry:

    I haven't been able to get any in my local shops for weeks. My 50mile cycles seem harder without a couple of fig rolls along the way and I'm missing them.

    Is there a world shortage of figs or something??

    The word is you might be able to get some at Co-op or Lidl, for now.

    There's a thread on the subject over at bikeradar. National shortage in the supermarkets due to failed crops etc. this year.

    I've been through a whole week now without my figgy fix and am starting to get irritable :ohmy::angry:

    God, not had any in years - remember they were pretty good and a great 'on bike' food.......

    Thanks for that. My local Co-op hasn't had any for weeks, but I hadn't thought of Lidl and will give the one a couple of miles from me a try. :tongue:

    I thought of that but felt I might get more feedback from a new thread - I'm desperate :ohmy:

    Newbury seems to be coming down in fig rolls; there are plenty in Waitrose too!

    I've bought every single fig roll in the country. :rolleyes:
    I'm keeping them in a secret area of the forum and you have to know the password to get in. :sad:
    I hate them, they offend me and I'd prefer not to see them when I browse the biscuity comestible shelf in Sainsburys. ;)

    Can we make fig rolls an 'opt in' option? ;)

    I had an incident with some low grade toilet paper at work today that produced something akin to a fig roll.

    There haven't been any here for weeks and weeks. Or at least, none of the supermarkets own brand ones...plenty of Mcvities' four times the pricers!
