They’re an Australian staple in nearly every single household, with the majority of people having fond memories of the Arnott’s Shapes biscuits from their childhood.

However, a new photo, which was uploaded to Facebook by comedian Christian Hull has caused a stir everywhere, with people gobsmacked at what he’s just discovered.

Dozens of boxes of Shapes can be seen stacked on the shelves in the snap, with all the delicious flavours on show.

But it was the caption that has everyone shocked, as Christian has just made the revelation that the graphic on the box is the same shape as the biscuit inside.

“You can never unsee this,” he later added.

If you can’t believe what you’ve just read, then you’re not alone, because over 8,500 people have commented on the post in the past 20 hours to talk about it.
