Default Arnotts vs. McVities

They have stopped stocking McVities biscuits in Woolworths.

All I can find is wall-to-wall Arnotts which are totally inferior, chocolate that's like lard, rock hard ginger nuts, tasteless fatty Tim Tams, yuk!

I need some plain chocolate Digestives right now!


So far it's Arnotts 0 McVities 1

What's your score? And no I am not a troll, I really want my Hob Nobs!

i do like some Arnotts. milk arrowroot are way better than rich tea, but as a general rule, if it is chocolate covered, it is just wrong.
the ginger nuts are tasty but will break your teeth!!
I can get mcvities choc digestive at my coles

Ooh ,chocolate hobnobs, what I'd do to get my hands on a packet!

Hate Arnotts, have you tried the boubons and custard creams, yak!

On the plus side, I don't sit dunking half a packet of biscuits anymore!!

We did a blind taste test with some Aussie friends of ours with Tim Tams and Penguins. There were 10 of us in total including them and 10 out of 10 preferred Penguins !!!!! They were a bit upset after all the times they had been telling us how Tim Tams were so much better ;-)

Even though I love an Arnott (OH is called Arnott so have to say that!!) McVities wins hands down. I truly miss different kinds of choccie biscuits, we can get normal hob nobs and digestives in coles here though so thats a bonus. Actually Coles is great, sells irn bru as well so I'm a happy woman
