Sinead dropped this news bomb earlier today, and we’re still trying to get our heads around it.
It turns out that the chocolate is on the bottom of the biscuit, not the top, as we have previously thought.
It means that Digestives, Hobnobs and many other lovely chocolate biscuits have been eaten the wrong way up throughout history.
The news has gone global, after a user posted an email from United Biscuits explaining their composition:
"For your information," a spokesperson wrote, "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."
McVities also said: "The McVitie’s stamp is on the other side, which is the top of the biscuit."
The Ray D’Arcy Show contacted McVities in London to explain themselves, to which they replied: “It would take at least half a day to brief someone on this”, so they weren’t able to provide a spokesperson for us this morning.
However, they did tell us that this applies to most of McVities core chocolate biscuit range – except for Jaffa Cakes.
So we can confirm that it’s ok to eat Jaffa Cakes chocolate side up!
Now that you have this information, will you continue to eat your chocolate biscuit the wrong way up? Or will you flip it choc side down and try a whole new chocolate biscuit experience?
It just doesn't seem natural...
