As someone who's convinced himself that eating a packet of crisps opened from the bottom somehow affects their taste, I nearly had a heart attack when reading this. You know the chocolate side of a McVitie's Chocolate digestive biscuit? That's its bottom.
Which, by extension, would mean the same for other snacks in McVitie's chocolate-dipped line up. If you're a Hobnob fan, chances are you've been eating them like some sort of baked-bite philistine all your life, too.
The revelation comes from the UK subreddit, where a United Biscuits spokesperson revealed that "the biscuits go through a reservoir of chocolate which enrobes them so the chocolate is actually on the bottom of the biscuits and not on the top."
The Independent later independently verified the statement, with a McVitie's spokesperson confirming that "the McVitie’s stamp is on the other side, which is the top of the biscuit."
