|Don't they grow up quick? You know it seems just like yesterday when HobNob's were in their first packet. Yes, McVities oaty new arrival had us all cooing over them. And do you remember when they had their first covering of milk chocolate, then plain? Was that really twenty years ago?|

|So HobNobs are all grown up now, 21 this year. As part of the celebrations there is a competition to write the best odes and poems about the nobbly wonders. There is a cash prize of £2100 to the over all winner plus a big bag of goodies with a 1985 theme, and a years supply of the oaty biccies.|
