About: This book tells the story of Jacobs, the famous Dublin biscuit makers. The Jacob Family, who were Quakers, started their enterprise in Waterford in 1851 but soon relocated to Dublin. Well-known products made by Jacobs included Cream Crackers, Kimberley, Mikado, Coconut Creams and Fig Rolls. Unfortunately, the book does not divulge how they got the figs into the Fig Rolls.
