It’s a debate as old as time but now, we've finally got the answer! The UK’s favourite biscuit has been revealed.
You and the other occupants of your house probably have this debate on a weekly basis. You love a good, oaty Hob Nob, whilst your partner favours the chewy layers of wafer and caramel that can only be found in a Caramel Wafer. However, you would both be wrong in thinking your choice is the Nations' choice. In fact, as voted by viewers of Channel 5, the good old chocolate digestive has been given the title of the UK’s favourite biscuit. This is hardly surprising, given the fact we'd definitely choose these as our emergency biscuits in the event of a disaster. Chocolate Hobnobs, Jammie Dodgers and Custard Crèmes followed after the Chocolate Digestive. Although we must say, we're horrified that the Caramel Wafer came so low down in the pecking order.

Rankings of the UK’s best biscuits:

  • Chocolate Digestive
  • Chocolate Hobnob
  • Jammie Dodger
  • Custard Crème
  • Shortbread
  • Bourbon
  • Jaffa Cake
  • Ginger Nut
  • Digestive
  • Wagon Wheel
  • Kit Kat
  • Caramel Wafer
  • Double chocolate chip cookie
  • Rich Tea
  • Fig Roll
  • Milk chocolate chip cookie
  • Malted Milk
  • Chocolate Finger
  • Hob Nob
  • Chunky Cookie
That wasn’t the only debate on the show, the second was whether the chocolate layer of a digestive is at the top or the bottom. This is despite McVitie's clarifying that the chocolate side is the bottom (WHAT?!). SaveSave
