Review of "McVitie´s HobNobs"
When it comes to biscuits, I'm a glutten for punishment. I normally go for the McVitie's chocolate digestives. But, when shopping in my local Spar the other day, I noticed they had McVitie's Hobnobs on buy one get one free offer. Not one for ever turning down an offer like that, I picked two packets up! One 300g packet of these biscuits cost me £0.85p - not bad considering I paid this for 2 packets!PACKAGING
The packet is mainly a warm orange colour with the named brand plastered around the packet. The words 'nobby, oaty biscuits' is under Hobnobs. And nobby and oaty they are! On one side of the packet are the ingredients, nutrition information and contact details. There is an easy 'tear here' tag which will easily open the packet.
Each biscuit is the size of a normal McVities digestive. To look at they, indeed, look very nobby! Not as smooth as their sister biscuit. You can see the oats in the biscuit. There isn't really much of a noticeable aroma to them. Just a slight aroma to them, a bit like ginger nuts, which presumably is the sugar syrup. The biscuits contains 38% of rolled oats, which isn't too bad. To look at, they are a light brown in colour.
Per biscuit, there are 69 calories and 3.1g of fat. Not good if you're on a diet, but hey, good for a treat!
Now onto the taste. They don't taste too sweet, which is good. I never like things that are too sweet. There is a nice crunchy texture to them. The oaty part of the biscuit can sometimes linger in your mouth, so a drink may be useful to have. Although I usually have a cup of tea with mine anyway. (Good for the old dunking process!!).
The hobnobs may contain traces of nuts, so be aware if you have a nut allergy.MY VERDICT
I haven't had these biscuits in a long time. (If I had, I'd have written a review about them before now!!). But, in all honesty, I had forgotten how nice they were until now. I'll still be loyal to McVitie's chocolate digestives, but if I want to digress anytiime, I shall opt for their hobnobs. They really are very nice, and a nice biscuit to have with a cuppa. Enjoy!
