We hope you're sitting down for this fact that will change EVERYTHING about McVitie's chocolate biscuits.
Ask someone where they think the chocolate is on a chocolate Hobnob or any version of delicious McVitie's biscuit, and pretty much everyone will say that it's on the top, right?
A Facebook user wanted to settle such a fierce debate so went straight to the source and asked the company.
"Please can you help us solve a debate in work today.. which is the top of this yummy mcvites(sic) chocolate hobnob?? The chocolatey side or the nobby side??," they asked, not realised that their world would be shattered.
McVitie's then dropped the bombshell: "Hi, our Hobnobs goes through a reservoir of chocolate, so it's on the bottom! Thanks, McVitie's."
We honestly don't think we'll ever recover, and we're not the only ones.

McVitie confirms chocolate is at the BOTTOM of a digestive, and my head is trying to calculate how many hours I've wasted over a lifetime.- sowerbyandluff (@sowerbyandluff) April 12, 2017
And before you think it's only its Hobnobs that have chocolate on the bottom, we hate to break it to you, but it applies to its Digestive biscuit too.
"When we make our McVitie's chocolate biscuits – whether that be Chocolate Hobnobs, Chocolate Digestives, or even Jaffa Cakes – they go through a reservoir of chocolate on the production line," Kerry Owens, McVitie's Marketing Director, told us.
"This essentially 'enrobes' the bottom in chocolate - so we can confirm that the chocolate is officially on the bottom of the biscuits."
This is almost as bad as the time we realised that Sugar Puffs have been dead for years and have actually been called Honey Monster Puffs since 2014 – and no-one realised.
The cereal's current owner, Brecks Brands, has also killed off Honey Monster and replaced him with an imposter.
