Well if we're going to be picky I'd say that it's a bit more like entropy...
It's our lowest energy state! :)

Not so sure about that. Try feeding a couple of hobnobs to a 4yo and watch what happens :lol:

Can I be somewhat heretical here and state that (lip trembling) I prefer Aldi chocolate hobnobs to the originals. (Hangs head in shame and gets coat...)

TBH I prefer Halls Crunchy Oaties despite them being completely chocolate free. It's a bugger that I can't seem to find them anywhere locally these days.......

If I was American I'd probably be muttering "Oreos" round about now.

Indeed, but when King George VI first proposed the motto for the Squadron emblem, it was turned down by the College of Arms because it was associated with Marie Antoinette. It was only when reminded that it was suggested by the King that they relented and accepted it.

There aren't many forums where the forumites jump between XLR cables, chocolate biscuits, French history, WWII weaponry and the College of Arms quite so readily!

Do yourself a favour, wear earplugs at gigs.

They're brilliant but an absolute bugger to find around here, haven't bought a packet since 1957 (mind you it's only 22:47 now).... bugger wrong thread......

QualitySave used to sell them but stopped a couple of years ago, not seen any since.

Nearest thing I can remember from the past was "Abbey Crunch" but they disappeared too long ago......

I used to survive windsurfing race meetings on Coke (the drink not the white powder before anybody gets the wrong idea*) and dark chocolate digestives (Co-Op own brand 'cos they were crunchier than McVities until they changed the formula sadly) but the discovery Halls Crinchie Oaties which were brilliant cos they had no chocolate to melt in a hot car.... Brilliant.

* I never did drugs back in the '60s and '70s but I'm making up for it now though, blood pressure tablets, statins, ibuprofen and whatever else is available when required.....
