New on the flapjack snack front are these McVitie’s Hobnobs Peanut Butter Fudge Flapjacks. Individually wrapped these promise to be bursting with oats, which is good when it comes to a flapjack. Hobnobs are my favourite biccie so pairing it with peanut butter, well the expectations are darn high!
Part of a trio of new additions to the McVitie’s cake block, the Hobnobs Peanut Butter Fudge Flapjacks sit alongside the Moments White Choc & Raspberry Crunch and Club Honeycomb Cake Crunchies.
Coming with 5 snack sized flapjacks these are available in most supermarkets. I purchased these from Ocado for a solid £1.00, however they usually retail at £1.65.
Peeling back the wrapper made way for a chunky oat block with a thin layer of milk chocolate. The oats are baked with Hobnobs biscuit pieces, syrup and peanut butter fudge flavour pieces. Let’s hope peanut butter is in there because from smell alone not a lot can be detected.

The oats really are substantial and are done well, oats and Hobnobs is a win. Thick, chewy but still with a little bite for texture, this sticky concoction is on point. The milk chocolate is in addition to the other ingredients and I could take it or leave it at this point. The fudge pieces are generous throughout and there is a subtle hint of peanut. The problem is there is not at all enough to constitute peanut butter flavour.
As a snack the McVitie’s Hobnobs Peanut Butter Fudge Flapjacks are decent. On the sweeter side of things, which isn’t a surprise, the downside for me is the peanut butter oomph is missing. Handy to have on-the-go and will curb the hunger pangs, I will eat the rest but unlikely to buy these again.
