Chocolate biscuits

When you're tucking into a chocolate digestive, you eat it with the chocolate facing upwards, right? Because the chocolate is always on the top face of the biccy. Wrong.

We know. You might need a sit down. 

You may be wondering how your dreams came to be shattered. It all started with a Facebook post. 

A female Facebook user shared a photo to McVitie's Facebook wall askingL "Which is the top of this yummy mcvities chocolate hobnob?? The chocolatey side or the nobby side??"

While fans were quick to point out the obvious - of COURSE the chocolate is on the upper side of the biscuit - McVities confirmed otherwise.

They wrote back: "Hi, our Hobnobs goes through a reservoir of chocolate so it's on the bottom! Thanks, McVitie's."

Kerry Owens, McVitie’s Marketing Director went on to confirm the almost unfathomable truth: "When we make our McVitie’s chocolate biscuits – whether that be Chocolate Hobnobs, Chocolate Digestives, or even Jaffa Cakes – they go through a reservoir of chocolate on the production line.

"This essentially 'enrobes' the bottom in chocolate – so we can confirm that the chocolate is officially on the bottom of the biscuits."

Now that really takes the biscuit.
