“ Brand: Mc Vitie's / Type: Biscuit „
Not content with three varieties of Hobnob, Mc Vitie have jumped on the Kit Kat bandwagon of crossover products. Rather like breeding the perfect pig, snacking has entered the world of unions between our favorite flavours and brands to entice us even further to purchase thier products.
On my lunchtime snack run down to Tesco's I did not even realise the pack of Hobnobs I had picked up was the new Hobnob Orange.
So imagine my suprise to find my Nobs had gone Orange!
Yes I hastily stored them away from the Salesmen in my office. They attack like a flock of seagulls whenever food is around. I needed to inspect the new snack in private or risk the whole pack being demolished in an instant.
< The Pack>
The pack colours are the same as the milk chocolate Hobnobs, being two colours of blue, but the word Hobnob is orange with a hint of orange peel each end.
Available in the 300g pack (not seen double packs yet)
< The Taste>
Does anybody remember Jacobs Club Biscuits. Well the Orange flavour Clubs were my favorite. These Hobnobs remind me very much of that taste. The orange flavour milk chocolate mixes well with the Oatmeal biscuit, to give sweet,sharp, and ever so slight savoury flavour. I find a nice clean after taste as well. The problem comes when you've had 3 or 4, it leads on to 2 more, then just 1 more. Thats half the pack gone.
< Price and Nutrition>
The recommended retail price is £1.09 for the 300g pack. Tesco are selling at £1.04.
Each biscuit contains:-
carbs 11.7g (sugar 6.2g)
Suitable for vegetarians
In a world of crossover snack and confectionary, Orange Hobnobs make a refreshing addition to the range. But where will they go next. Maybe a White Chocolate Hobnob?
