As far as Peter Kay is concerned Hob Nobs are the Marines of the biscuit world when it comes to dunking in your brew, they are the hardest ones on the shop shelves, pretty sure he was not referring to the chocolate variety as the chocolate just melts but they are a substantial biscuit that can take a good dunking. Now I'm more a fan of milk chocolate rather than plain but sometimes plain chocolate works really well as a compliment to some foods and in the case of hob nobs I prefer the plain version to the milk one. Hob nobs are an oaty wholemeal sweet biscuit which has a lovely taste, you can see the oats in the biscuit and they have a nice crunchy ... Read the complete review

Until recently I hadn't tried the Plain Chocolate McVitities Hob Nobs. I'd had, and loved, the original version and the milk chocolate version, so I decided I'd give this ones a try as well. I'm not a massive fan of dark chocolate, but I do enjoy it for a change every now and again. These retail in Tesco for £1.38 for a 300g tube. I have to say firstly that the price does feel a little on the high side for regular tea time biscuits, but these are something a little bit beyond your standard biccy, and they aren't unreasonably priced for what they are. These are like a cross between a biscuit and a cookie in my opinion, and for that reason they're worth ... Read the complete review

When buying some present in Sainsburys recently I was starving and went on a bit of a food rampage just throwing things in to the trolley and grabbing whatever was on offer from the ends of aisles, what can I say I was hungry! These dark chocolate hob nobs are currently half price reduced from £1.33 down to 66p which is an absolute bargain. McVities Hob Nobs come in either a tube or a sealed wrapper and as I brought the 300g one mine were in a sealer wrapper which I just peeled open and then emptied in to my biscuit jar. There were around 15 biscuits within which may not sound like a lot but they are much thicker than some of the biscuits I usually ... Read the complete review

Hob Nobs are delicious oat biscuits made by Mcvities. The dark chocolate version of the Hob Nobs make a very nice change. These biscuits are one of husband's favourites so to get in his good books I treat him to a pack every now and again. They are packaged in a dark brown packet. They have a picture of the Hob Nobs on the packet. They have a new piece on the packet saying bigger biscuits! Great. The packet has 300g of the chocolate Hob Nobs. As soon as you open the packet the oaty sweet smell wafts out. The biscuits are very moreish. They are oaty and described on the packet as 'nobbly'. They have a lovely texture and dissolve lovely in a cup ... Read the complete review

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 “like the bloody SAS of the biscuit world.” My Sunday favourites ARE McVities Hobnobs! **How much & where from? We either get ours from Farmfoods, where you can get two 300g packs for a pound, or from the local Spar (across the road) where the same 300g pack costs 83 pence for just the one. The former is the ideal, the latter option is for when we get ... Read the complete review
