Healthy hobnobs

Our NHS and Partnerships team asked if there was such a thing as a healthy hobnob. So, we added 100g dark chocolate to our Anzac cookies and birthed the Fobnob (fake hobnob). We highly recommend pairing them with a delicious cuppa and enjoying mindfully, of course. Plus, they are vegan-friendly! ⁠

How long will these last and do they need to be stored in a tin or a fridge because of the banana content?
