“Hobnob Snob”

published 23/12/2013

tasty, makes a great cheesecake base

crumbly and messy

Gluttony This month (December) is expected to be full of food. Meat of every kind, preferably wrapped in a different kind of meat. Twenty different kinds of birds all neatly shoved into each other. Cakes wrapped in meringue, dusted with sweets. Puddings heaped upon puddings. As such I’ve been...

“Send in the Marines!”

published 03/11/2004

Good dunkers, really tasty.

Sharp oats!

There is a bit of a tradition in the Waterhouse Homestead. Sundays involve a couple of newspapers, a milky coffee for me (black for Alun) and a few biscuits to dunk! Tange’s biscuit of choice at the moment is the one described by Peter Kay as the Marines ~perfect for dunking, he says they are...

“Hob Nobs? No Probs!”

Ah McVities. A giant amongst biscuit makers worldwide. A much loved giant too, that was born way back in the 20s. According to the website unitedbiscuits.com, a new employee Alexander Grant was the creater of the first ever digestive biscuit - so called apparantly because they are easy to digest...

“HobNobbing with the Best...”

published 24/02/2003

Harmony of chocolate & biscuit

95 calories per biscuit

What do you mean no one's written anything about HobNobs yet?! You selfish pricks... well I oughta... No. Civility has value yet. Because when you eat HobNobs, you're hobnobbing with the best. It would perhaps be helpful for the uninitiated if I described what a HobNob looks like. Unfortunately...

Can help you forget the bad things in life

Can make you fat too

Until about 1984 or 1985, plain biscuits were just that: plain, and a little boring. You could have Rich Tea or Digestive or on a particularly exciting occasion a Lincoln or Royal Scot - my personal favourite at the time. All however suffered from a major shortcoming: dunk them in your tea a...

“Crunchy, oaty taste”

published 09/09/2003

Really tasty

Can fall apart when dunked for too long

I'm not a great biscuit eater but I do like Hobnobs. The plain ones are just right for me, I find the chocolate ones too fussy. The plain ones are crunchy, but not hard and have a crumbly texture but without falling apart - unless you dunk them. If you do dunk them then you have to be quick - a...

Nice taste. A trustworthy brand of biscuits.

You could end up eating more than you intended!

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...

“Hobnobbing The McVities Way!”

published 29/11/2005

Taste Quite Nice, Fill A Hunger Gap

Rather Dry, Contain Gluten

Can you believe that until a couple of nights ago I had never had a Hobnob before, of course I have always seen them around on my regular patrols of the Supermarket aisles, but by the time I reach the Biscuit aisle my trolley is usually full of Chocolate (along with the odd bit of food) and I've...

“Hob-Me-Nob MCVities”

published 28/05/2004

Munchable, very crumbly

too eatbale.....addictve

Are Hobnobs one of the greatest most eatable biscuits ever? I think I know the answer to that little question…..YES!!!!!! You ask just about anyone, and they will say that they have tried a Hobnob once in their lives, most of them will probably say also that they are addicted to them for sure...

“Makes you 'oatily' want more”

Crumbly, makes a mess.

Slender yet strong, crunchy yet moist, tasty yet healthy (in comparison to other biscuits). These are a few conflicting criteria which I have found have been compromised in place of the other in other biscuits. Not so with the Hobnob. This embodies all the sumptuous substance that pleases my...

“Nice Biscuit”

published 18/11/2005

Good Tasty Biscuit,

None, Maybe just too addictive

About Hobnobs McVitie's biscuits have been enjoyed by generations for over 100 years. They initially started with Chocalote Digestives and then the HobNobs brand was launched in 1985 and a milk chocolate variant followed in 1987. My opinion Now I do enjoy a nice biscuit with my cup of tea in the...

Dunktastic

A bit salty

As a good old British biscuit goes, this is one of the best. In only a few years of it's introduction I believe this biscuit has put itself into the top three of all time tea-dunking biscuits. For years Rich Tea and Digestives topped the charts but McVities saw a gap in the market and created...

Same great taste as the originals

They are just too delicious!

I love McVitie's HobNobs, they are addictive, tasty, and well to be frank rather fattening! Now you can get McVitie's HobNobs Lights, they are lighter on the calories but definately not light on taste! The calorie content of each of these biscuits is 62, rather than over 90 for the original...

The biscuit filled a gap between lunch and my evening meal. The texture was oaty and dry. I would recommend eating them whilst drinking milk, as the two compliment each other. I would not recommend eating them in bed as the crumbs can make a mess. Ideally having a napkin or eating them over a wipeable surface is best.
