You've Probably Been Eating Jaffa Cakes The Wrong Way Up

You've Probably Been Eating Jaffa Cakes The Wrong Way Up

If, like me, you have spent your entire life believing that the top of a Jaffa Cake is the chocolate bit and the bottom is the sponge part, then I have some news that may shock you.

Are you sitting down?

Turns out we were wrong all along - and the chocolate part is actually the bottom.

I know, I know - I'm as shocked as anyone.

But one man had his suspicions all along - so much so, he actually reached out to McVitie's to set the record straight once and for all.

Sharing his discovery in the Facebook group Family Lockdown Tips and Ideas, a fella called Dan posted a screenshot of a conversation he had with the biscuit makers, in which he asked: "What side of the Jaffa is the bottom?"

Jaffa Cake responded: "Hi David, our Jakka Cakes go through a reservoir of chocolate, so the chocolate is on the bottom! Thanks, Jaffa Cakes."

A clearly shocked Dan then replied: "Wtf dudde."

Wtf dudde indeed, Dan.

This isn't the first time McVitie's has tried to tell us all we're eating their biscuits upside down.

Man Says We've All Been Eating Fish And Chips Wrong

published at10 months ago

"This essentially 'enrobes' the bottom in chocolate - so we can confirm that the chocolate is officially on the bottom of the biscuits."

I mean, honestly, that just makes things worse - so not only have I been wrong about Jaffa Cakes, but also digestives and Hobnobs. Brilliant.

However, this won't be shocking news for all of you, because some people already eat their biscuits upside down... or the right way up as it turned out to be.

A couple of years back, journalist Amna Saleem sparked a debate after she tweeted: "I will get back to writing in a sec but help me settle something - when you eat a digestive chocolate biscuit you eat it with the chocolate face down, right? So, you can enjoy maximum chocolate. Yes?"

Hmm, 'maximum chocolate' does sound good, now you mention it.

OK, fine, McVitie's you win.
