    In that case, if you can save some for 12 days time, then I'll be in "a better place"!!!

    'A better place' refers to recovery from a long spell of Sarcoidosis and associated drugs.

    No, but you can get a 'hobnob high' where you are found slumped in a corner, glassy-eyed and giggling, surrounded by crumbs..

    @witch LOL

    Get's even more serious when you're a HobNob addict and the standard high isn't enough, so you start scraping the crumbs into a line and rolling up a 10 note..

    Hang on, a Big Mac 'only' has 490 calories. Are you saying I could have had 3 Big Macs and still have been better off?!!

    Source: How many calories are in the BIG MAC
    *And I'm taking MacDonalds answer here. Because it's the lower amount.

    1 hobnob biscuit weights 14g according to my digital scales (well 14.23g but I rounded down)
    100g of hobnobs contain 467 calories
    7 hobnobs = just a shade under 100g

    As such 7 hobnobs = 467 calories. The average pack contains 20 hobnobs
    As such 1 pack of hobnobs = 1331 calories.

    You could eat 2 big mac's and be better off rather than eating a whole pack of hobnobs

    Also think of the fact that 1 big mac contain far more protein than a whole pack of hobnobs so in actual fact they are better for you than hobnobs!
