HobNobs biscuits are a traditional British type of oat biscuit. They are similar to ANZAC biscuits (which are most common in Australia).
They are primarily sold in the United Kingdom, the Isle of Man and Ireland but are available in the U.S, New Zealand and several European and Asian countries (e.g. Taiwan). In Italy they are now marketed as a variety of digestive biscuit, having previously been known as Suncrok. They were also released in Canada in November 2012, made available in Wal-Mart's British modular section in their food aisles.
The commercial recipe was introduced by McVitie's in Scotland in 1985. The biscuit is currently available in many varieties, including dark chocolate, chocolate orange, and Hobnob bars. Other HobNobs-branded snacks include a HobNobs flapjack. Hobnobs contains approx 0.16 g of sodium per biscuit. The name hob-nob comes from Shakespeare's The Twelfth Night.
