Today I had thoughts of HobNobs!! What is a HobNob you ask!! It is cookie/biscuit that began in the UK. Here is a little description.
If you’re an oat-aholic, then McVitie's HobNobs are your biscuits. First launched in the UK in 1985, they were later followed by the Milk Chocolate alternative in 1987.
While in Ireland and Scotland I got hooked on these things, I could eat a whole sleeve of biscuits myself every day!! Non-sweet, great tasting cookie. Send your taste buds soaring with the mouth watering oat and wheat HobNob biscuits. The initial crunch followed by the gentle melt leaves you wanting more. I must say they are most addictive, these knobbly golden delights will leave you with just one difficult problem - to share or not to share? NOT!!!
While in NYC babysitting my grandson in early June I stopped in one of the markets and low and behold there they were on the supermarket shelf, I was like an old junkie, I started to shake, and place every last one into my cart ... price, did I check to see what it was, NO, it was HobNobs, I had not had them in years!! I have to say once I got to the checkout though I was not prepared for the total ... those little morsels were almost as much as gold ... well not quite, but almost!! BUT it is also a market in NYC, on Broadway, so I expect some price increase but $4.99 a small box! WHOA!! Well I bit the bullet (and the cookie) and purchased my HobNobs and was in full glory walking back to my daughters place as I munched on HobNobs and dreamed of being back in the UK!!! Guess where I am going the next time I visit my daughter!!! YUP .... back to the market!!!
