Are you a big fan of cream crackers? Maybe you're obsessed with fig rolls? (JK literally no-one is obsessed with fig rolls, jeez.)

Anyway, biccie fans can now take a trip down memory lane and learn all about Jacob Biscuit Factory with a new tour held at Dublin City Library and Archive.

This major exhibition will explore all aspects of the factory’s twentieth century history and its impact on lives of Dubliners. Colourful panels will demonstrate the history of the factory, the workers, the products it produced and its role in Irish life. 

Find out the fascinating history of the Jacobs cream-cracker, who was the marketing genius to develop the concept of Jim Figgerty, and how did major national and international events from World Wars to 1916 Rising impact the business, customers, and staff. 

This sounds like a super weekend day activity. The exhibition runs Monday to Thursday 10am to 8pm, Friday & Saturday 10am to 5pm, and is on until the 28th October.
