Jaffa Cake fans have been left stunned after learning they’ve been eating them UPSIDE DOWN.

McVitie’s confirmed the shock news after being asked online which way up they should be consumed.

A shopper, called David, sent a message to the biscuit giant saying: “What side of the Jaffa is the bottom?”

How should we eat Jaffa Cakes?

He then received a reply, stating: “Hi David, our Jaffa Cakes go through a reservoir of chocolate, so the chocolate is on the bottom!”

The McVitie’s official signed off: “Thanks, Jaffa Cakes.”

A mum has since posted the exchange in the Facebook group Family Lockdown Tips & Ideas.

And it is fair to say the news has shocked fans of the yummy snack, with some even refusing to accept it.

Someone replied: “It’s exactly the same as chocolate digestives!”

Another claimed: “Same as a chocolate digestive!! I found this out a few months back.”
