      A fantastic all round biscuit chocolate clash

      Within the UK I think you would struggle to find anyone who has not heard of Cadbury's, they currently make a wealth of products from snowmen at Christmas to cookies and fruity chocolate bars. Cadbury was established by a single man in 1824 in Birmingham originally only selling the luxuries of the day which were tea, coffee and drinking chocolate. Chocolate was introduced in 1905 using a high portion of milk than in their rivals recipes, from 1914 their chocolate was their best selling product. If you look at their websites there are hundreds of varieties of chocolate bars covering seasons and holidays plus there is even a Cadbury world in Birmingham.

      Now this review is covering the original chocolate fingers which is a biscuit the approximate length of a finger covered in chocolate. This biscuit is the ideal dunker for your tea or coffee with just enough chocolate and a nice crispy biscuit; another little quirk is to bite both ends off the biscuit and suck up your tea or coffee through the biscuit like a straw. Don't suck for too long though or the biscuit will collapse!
      The tag line for these biscuits has always been one may lead to another; similar to the Pringles once you pop you won't stop and this is true for me, I find them very hard to put down. I'm not sure why but I often look at these biscuits as a Christmas treat and as such my parents gifted me a lovely box of each flavour, I think I have done well to resist them this long.

      The box is 125g and these can be bought in most supermarkets such as Tesco and Iceland, often there are deals on them being reduced to £1 or so many extra free so make sure you find the best price.

      The box is the usual Cadbury purple which we all instantly recognise with swirls and lighter areas and some white with the logo in the top right hand corner. The chocolate finger biscuits are shown standing in a line and curling around to the right hand side and back around to the side of the box, a few of the biscuits have faces and arms drawn onto them. Inside there is a plastic black tray with the biscuits in and sealed with a plastic wrap.The average contents of the box is 36 which I find is not many to share as the biscuits are small (I think I just convince myself of this).

      The biscuits are crunchy upon the first bite, it makes the nice 'cluck' sound when breaking. The chocolate is smooth and has a sweetness to it but also creaminess which prevents the sugar burning that sometimes happens on the tongue or an the cheeks.

      The ingredients are: Milk chocolate (48%)(Sugar, milk, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, vegetable fat, emulsifiers (soya lecithin, E476), flavourings)
      Wheat flour. vegetable fat, sugar, partially inverted sugar syrup. salt, rasing agents (spdium bicarbonate, ammonium bicarbonate), flavouring.

      They may contain traces of nuts. Are suitable for vegetarians.

      Per serving {a mere 4 fingers} there are 100 kcals.

      I give these the full 5 stars for value and taste.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Essential biscuit for Christmas.

      Cadbury Fingers are so moreish it is impossible to just eat one, but at 31.5 calories a finger it is probably not a good idea to scoff
      the whole 125g box. The boxes can be found at all good retailers for around £1.99 when not on offer. I usualy get my Cadbury Fingers from a pound shop for a £1.00 .

      Cadbury Fingers have always seemed to be a Christmas treat for my family and once a box is opened it gets eaten up. The packaging is very good and keeps the fingers safe, I have never had a broken one. The plastic tray is very easy to slide out the box.

      The biscuit part of the finger is very similar to shortcake and is lovely and crisp but not crumbly. The chocolate layer is a couple of mm thick and coats the biscuit finger smoothly and evenly. The combination of biscuit and chocolate is perfect, I feel like I am having a lovely chocolate treat without eating to much chocolate.

      As I previously stated Cadbury fingers make me feel Christmassy but they are available all year round My Husband who was unfortunatly out of work though the summer took to baking cakes and he used Cadbury Fingers around the outside of his chocolate fudge cake. It takes just over two boxes of fingers to go around the outside of a 8 inch sponge cake, so I got to eat the spares.

      The fingers contain gluten, wheat, milk and soya/soyabeans and may contain nuts. All nutritional information and ingredients are on the box or easily found on the internet.

      Thank you for reading.

        off to Asda to get myself some chocolate fingers...

        My love for Cadbury's chocolate fingers began in 2010 when I was in labour with my daughter. We hadn't eaten for a very long time and my darling sister in law saved the day by bringing in a bag of lots of yummy goodies for us (better than hospital food by a mile!) I'd never really paid much attention to these before but at this particular moment they were exactly what I needed and me and chocolate fingers have had a fantastic relationship ever since!

        Ingredients:

        Milk Chocolate (48%) (Whole Milk, Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Mass, Vegetable Fat, Emulsifiers (Soya Lecithin, E476), Flavourings),Wheat Flour ,Vegetable Fat ,Sugar ,Partially Inverted Sugar Syrup ,Salt ,Raising Agents (Ammonium Bicarbonate, Sodium Bicarbonate) ,Flavouring

        Each finger contains 30 calories and 1.5g of fat.

        These fingers come in a signature Cadbury's purple cardboard box which inside has a tray with the fingers on, this slides out of the end of the box. The fingers themselves are a simple yet genius combination of shortcake biscuit covered in just the right amount of chocolate. The recommended serving is 4 fingers- but I've not known anyone be able to stop at this amount and 9 times out of 10 I will wolf down the whole box in one sitting. These are incredibly moreish, I am a self confessed chocoholic anyway but these just take it to a whole other level!

        Chocolate fingers now come in several different varieties including toffee, white and dark chocolate. You can buy these from all major supermarkets where I've seen them for sale at around £1.99, but a lot of the time they can be bought on offer for £1. This is when I stock up!

        A yummy treat- but be warned you will eat the whole box!!!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Super little biscuits for loads of different occasions

          ===Why I Got This===

          We always try and eat healthily throughout the year but at Christmastime we do indulge with chocolates and biscuits. Chocolate Fingers are one of my son's favourites and I mostly do not get a chance to have any so this year I was buying them on special offer and hiding some packs for myself to eat while I was wrapping presents.



          ===The Brand===

          Cadbury is a British confectionery company owned by Mondelēz International Inc. and is the industry's second-largest globally after Mars, Incorporated (Wikipedia). The original Cadbury firm began in the 1820s and has a long and illustrious history.
          According to Wikipedia -' the modern style of Cadbury Fingers were launched in 1951. However, a similar biscuit was first introduced in 1897 as part of a Cadbury biscuit assortment'.



          ===The Product===

          Standard oblong purple box which contains approximately 24 biscuits.
          My box had images of snow as it was on sale for Christmas.
          110 calories per serving of four biscuits.
          Box contains 125 grams.
          Long shelf life - mine was until August 2013.
          'Finger shaped crisp biscuits smothered in yummy Cadbury milk chocolate.'
          Baked in the UK by Burton's Biscuit Company under licence from Cadbury.
          Suitable for Vegetarians.
          Comments and Suggestions can be sent to:
          Consumer Services,
          Burton Biscuit Company,
          P.O. Box 145, Birmingham.

          Other varieties of Finger are also available such as White (Dream), Fabulous (White and Milk Chocolate), Toffee, Dark and Double Chocolate.



          ===Cost===

          £1.89 per box at Tesco but very often on sale as Buy One Get One Free.



          ===My Opinion===

          These standard finger biscuits have been a favourite of mine since I was a child and now my son is taking after me in absolutely loving them as well.
          We always go for the traditional fingers made with milk chocolate, although my son does have some of the white fingers at Christmas.
          We have not experimented with the newer versions as we really like the biscuits as they are with a sort of shortcake biscuit centre and covered in lovely creamy milk chocolate.
          The Burton's website state that a billion Cadbury Fingers are consumed in the UK every year - which is an awful lot of fingers!
          With these traditional fingers you always know what you are getting - which is very nice sometimes as you do not always want to be buying new versions or different biscuits and then finding you do not like them.
          Looking at the box I was surprised to see 110 calories and thought that was a lot per biscuit - but reading closely the 110 calories is for four biscuits - which is not too bad at all.
          What I like about these biscuits is that, although they are covered in chocolate, they are not too sickly because the biscuit centre provides a good balance t the covering of chocolate. So that even at Christmastime you can eat some of these and enjoy them - whereas if you had boxes of chocolates they would be too sickly.
          We have always bought these fingers from when the family were young - as youngsters love these little fingers and they are not too large for them to enjoy - unlike the large round chocolate biscuits.
          Cadbury Fingers were always bought for the children's Birthdays and I found them invaluable for when I was making a large 'cottage' birthday cake and used them to make the roof.
          Even now we always buy the fingers to decorate large sponge cakes and they look great if stood up on end around the outside of a round chocolate cake and then filling the centre with chocolate butter cream , Maltesers and buttons!
          When it comes to sweets, chocolates and biscuits I find that the older varieties are the best - they have stood the test of time and I much prefer these plainer sort of biscuits rather than those which are way too sweet and sickly.



          ===Star Rating===

          5 stars.



          ===Would I Recommend?===

          Yes.



          ===Website===

          www.cadbury.co.uk



          ===Full Ingredients===

          Milk Chocolate (48%) (Milk, Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Mass, Vegetable Fat, Emulsifiers (Soya Lecithin, E476), Flavourings), Wheat Flour, Vegetable Fat, Sugar, Partially Inverted Sugar Syrup, Salt, Raising Agents (Sodium Bicarbonate, Ammonium Bicarbonate), Flavouring.

          Disadvantages

          A delicious chocolate biscuit

          One item we brought last year when we did our Christmas food shop was a large box of Cadbury Fingers, I actually think this is something we buy most years, they make an ideal treat, however they are not something we would normally buy purely because they wouldn't last very long at all, but over Christmas they made a tasty treat for us to eat during the evenings.

          Packaging
          As I have said we brought a large box of Cadbury fingers but the box the same as the smaller ones. The chocolate fingers come in a dark purple cardboard box, this fades to a light purple colour in the bottom left hand corner. In the right hand corner of the front of the box is the Cadbury logo, just underneath this is the word "Fingers" this is written in a white 'patch' within the dark purple background with the word "Fingers" being written in the same dark purple colour. The rest of the box is taken up with pictures of the Cadbury Fingers set up in a domino effect with the first few tilting as though they are about to knock the whole row down, this domino pattern goes right across the front of the box, round one side of it and finishes up on the back of the box. This is the only information on the front of the box it is very limited and basic but you cannot fail to know what this product is just by looking at it. The back of the box as I have mentioned contains the rest of the picture of the fingers continued from the front of the box along with the Cadbury Fingers logo, as well as this is information such as the ingredients, nutritional information, allergy advise and amount of fingers per box. All of this information is written in separate boxes towards the bottom of the box, it is all written in purple writing within white boxes making it stand out and easy to read.
          The Cadbury fingers come in black plastic trays covered in a clear cellophane to keep the product inside fresh. The black trays have small grooves in them just wide enough for the fingers to sit in, however every time I have brought Cadbury Fingers they are not sitting nicely in their little grooves but have usually tipped up one end of the tray, the black tray slide nicely into the box, in our case the box we brought contained 2 trays of fingers, having each tray individually wrapped is handy as it helps to keep the chocolate fingers inside fresh until you are ready to eat.

          The Chocolate Fingers
          There really isn't a huge amount to say about the chocolate fingers themselves, they are exactly what the name suggests, a finger shaped crispy biscuit, this always reminds me of a digestive biscuit taste, rounded on each end, this is then covered in a layer of Cadbury Milk Chocolate. Each finger is flat on the bottom with the chocolate being slightly textured and rounded on top, each finger measures approximately 2 inches. The chocolate on the fingers is not overly thick, however personally I feel it is just the right thickness as any thicker then it would take away from the crunchy biscuit underneath. The chocolate covering the fingers is typical Cadbury Milk Chocolate exactly the same as a bar, you cannot fail to taste that this is a Cadbury chocolate. As I have said the biscuit part of the fingers reminds me of digestive biscuits, it is not overly sweet but combined with the sweet creamy chocolate coating its ideal.

          Nutritional Information
          The nutritional information on the back of the box is given per serving which they recommend at as being 4 fingers, speaking from experience there is no way you stick to just 4 fingers, anyway the information below is per 4 fingers/ per serving
          *Calories - 120Kal
          *Protein - 1.6g
          *Carbohydrates - 13.6g
          *Fat - 7.6g
          *Fibre - 0.4g
          Personally I feel the calorie content of just 4 Cadbury Fingers is quite high as there really isn't a lot to each chocolate finger, however as I have mentioned these were brought for Christmas so I wasn't too worried about the calorie and fat content, however after looking at this I do not think I would eat these everyday, to start with I couldn't trust myself to stick to just 4 fingers or one serving as it is described and even if I did for me the calorie content is a bit high for a snack Id rather something a little healthier.

          Allergy Information
          This is printed on the back of the box in a bright yellow rectangle which really stands out and contrasts the mainly purple and white design of the box making this information very easy to find. The information states that Cadbury Chocolate Fingers contain
          *Wheat
          *Milk
          *Soya
          *May contain nuts
          Probably not the best option if you are someone who suffers with food allergies but its good to see this information so clearly labelled rather than having to read through everything on the back of the box just to find it.

          Price
          I brought my box of Cadbury Fingers from Tesco, we purchased the larger box containing 2 trays of fingers, the box contained approximately 48 fingers, I have not counted to check this, this is the estimate which is written on the box itself. When we brought our 250g box they were on offer for around £2.00 which we thought was quite good considering the amount you got in a box, a 125g box is £1.79 so we were getting a lot more for our money. Unfortunately I do not know how much these are full price as they do not seem to have this sized box on their website, they only have the smaller 125g boxes for £1.79 (these are full price) I think £2.00 is good value for money for this product, however I'm not sure I would pay full price as I do find that they really do no last that long, once you have opened a tray it doesn't take long to finish it all.

          My Opinion
          Personally I would recommend Cadbury Chocolate Fingers, they make a lovely treat for any chocolate lovers, the combination of the crispy biscuit and sweet creamy chocolate is perfect in my opinion. These are ideal for the whole family and would make an ideal treat for children. In my opinion this is not something I would buy to eat every day of the week purely because of the high calorie content per serving but I have no objection to buying them for special occasions. I have no complaints about this product other than they are very addictive, you cannot just have one, or maybe that's just me! Overall a lovely tasty treat for the whole family.

            Disadvantages

            moreish treats

            Cadbury's chocolate fingers are one of the most more-ish confectionaries I have ever tried, once you open them you can't stop and before you know it you end up eating the full packet. I always associate these kind of chocolates with christmas time because it's the time when the family come together and sit around watching movies and eating cakes and snacks so this strikes me as that kind of sweet. Personally I will eat this whenever because they are just so good! You can usually pick them up in Asda for around a pound I won't buy them if they are any more than that.

            Now of course, these are long sticks roughly the size of you guessed it, a finger. It is short cake biscuit covered in a layer of cadbury's chocolate what has never failed at satisfying my taste buds, unlike a lot of Cadbury's products these delicious fingers don't leave the bitter or sticky after taste. Dipping these into hot chocolate or tea melts the chocolate around the crunchy biscuit making the flavor ooze in your mouth as you take a bit.

            Like a lot of their other products this comes in aa bright purple cardboard box and the fingers are on a plastic tray, Cadbury recommend that you only eat 4 fingers.. with me it's more like 4 boxes!

            Ingredients:
            Milk Chocolate 48% (Milk, sugar, Cocoa butter, Cocoa mass, Vegetable fat, Emulsifiers (Soya lecithin E476) Flavourings) Wheat Flour Vegetable Fat Sugar Partially inverted sugar syrup Salt Raising agents (Sodium Bicarbonate, Ammonium bicarbonate) Flavouring CONTAINS: WHEAT, MILK, SOYA. MAY CONTAIN: NUTS.

              A crunchy little finger

              I'm sure cadburys chocolate fingers have been around for longer than I have! Years ago you would just have the original and best chocolate finger, but in more recent years they have brought out different flavours such as double chocolate, dark chocolate, dream, toffee crunch, and fabulous fingers. They have even brought out special fingers for halloween named "freaky Fingers".

              The packaging of cadburys fingers hasn't changed much and is still the same familiar purple box with the cadburys logo on the top left hand corner. On the bottom right hand corner there is the treatwise logo stating there are 105 calories per serving (4 fingers).

              Inside the box are the biscuits in a plastic tray covered in plastic wrapper and in a single layer. They have a good layer of cadbury chocolate on them and are crunchy and once you have one you'll want another one.

              I've used them for decorating the side of cakes, and they work well. Or of course you can dunk them in coffee or just have them as a quick dessert! They have been a favourite for years and will remain so for years to come.

              The nutritional information is:
              Per fingers.

              Om nom nom nom nom.

              Cadbury's fingers is a nice little chocolate snack that I like to buy now and again when it is on offer.
              The packaging has changed from what the above dooyoo picture is and now has images of the chocolate fingers lined up in a sort of 'domino' effect - with one about to knock over all the others..

              The pack comes in a purple box which we all associate with Cadburys. The packet that I have has 50% extra free - 187.5g for the price of 125g. This offer is highlighted in a big yellow box and so is very noticable and eye catching. I found this box on offer at just over £1 in Tesco and decided to treat myself to it.

              Cadburys describes the product as delicious finger shaped crisp biscuits smothered in yummy Cadburys chocolate. It does taste really nice and I haven't come across anyone who doesn't like them. The fingers are also suitable for vegetarians.

              I'm not going to type up the ingredients but the box does clearly state it contains wheat, milk, soya and may contrain traces of nuts - incase anyone has allergies.

              Once you open the box - inside is a little tray/container that holds the fingers. The packaging has a slot for each individual finger.

              I give these chocolate biscuits 5 stars as I do find them to taste very nice, and one can easily lead to another :P.. but I find them a great little treat and excellent to share. They are also on offer quite often in supermarkets and that can be a great time to buy them. Careful not to eat too many though ;).

                Delicious moreish crispy chocolate covered biscuits

                I remember at all the childrens parties that I used to go to the Cadburys fingers were the first item that were demolished by the us all before the sandwhiches and sausage rolls. Still to this day at the age of 22 years old whenever I see Cadbury fingers at a party I load them onto my plate before any savoury food.

                The packaging of the fingers sticks with Cadburys purple shade displaying the product across the front of the packet. In the top left hand corner there is a Cadburys logo and the name of the product 'fingers'. At the bottom left of the packet there is the famous Cadbury chocolate square with milk being pourred over it with the caption "One may lead to another..." Cadburys certainly know that these biscuits are moreish.

                The bisuits come in a plactic tray on which they are spread out across and are sometimes overloaded with (YUM!) Contained in a thin layer of plastic for freshness I always find myself excited to open the packet. On the back of the packet Cadbury say the average amount of fingers is 24.

                Cadbury fingers are thin crunchy biscuits covered in a layer of Cadbury milk chocolate that are seriously moreish. They will always be one of my favourite treat biscuits and I'd reccommend these to absolutely anyone-especially for a party!

                Ingredients

                Milk Chocolate 48%

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  A handy chocolate biscuit snack; everyone wants more!

                  I think everybody loves Cadbury Chocolate fingers. Funnily enough in regard to Cadbury itself i was looking at their website. It is a really fantastic website. It bought back memories of old Cadbury chocolates that are no longer available in the UK or have been discontinued such as Cadbury old Jamaica; i used to love this chocolate bar. Also Frys five centres and Aztec. There are some that are no longer available that i never liked though, for example Boost.

                  Anyway getting back to their chocolate fingers; If you think about it, this is a simple biscuity snack and yet it is so popular. There is something about the slightly crispy biscuit, its taste, together with the outer Cadbury chocolate layer that goes together so well; that makes these biscuits very moreish indeed. On the box it states 'One may lead to another'. Im not going to argue with that and i dont think my son would argue with that either! I went into the fridge about an hour ago to get some milk out for my cuppa tea and i noticed the box of Cadbury fingers was there with the empty wrapper on top of the box! I first though 'i know who's eaten all of them!'. Secondly i thought, 'i'll do a review on them'! I went into the frontroom passing my daughter on the settee with the box; she held out her hand (in other words wanting some Cadbury fingers!). I had to tell her that the box was empty! She wasn't too pleased. My son was also in the room. My daughter said to me ' i havn't had a single one' and my son denied eating the lot! I usually put away some of the goodies i buy because my son would eat the lot. I was sort of expecting this. However, the box was in the fridge for quite a while and i didnt think that my daughter would end up not having any at all! On top of that I didnt get a look in either!

                  I almost always buy this biscuit snack in Iceland. It usually only costs a £1.00 and often you can buy it in there with 50% extra or on a BOGOF offer. The box i had was one with 50% extra. So instead of 125g there were 187.5g in this box. This is a good little buy i think; just a pity they dont last too long in my house!

                  The box itself is purple, with a picture of the Cadbury fingers in a row but with them leaning and falling towards the end of the row. On the side of the box it says 'more to share' Chance would be a fine thing! The average contents of this box it states are 36 fingers. Unfortunately there may be traces of nuts in the fingers; so they are a no no for nut allergy sufferers.

                  ~~INGREDIENTS~~~

                  Milk chocolate (48%)(Sugar, milk, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, vegetable fat, emulsifiers (soya lecithin, E476), flavourings)
                  Wheat flour. vegetable fat, sugar, partially inverted sugar syrup. salt, rasing agents (spdium bicarbonate, ammonium bicarbonate), flavouring.


                  Per serving (Cadbury recommend 4 fingers!) there are 120 kcals. These biscuits are suitable for vegetarians.

                  These are a great little snack, though the chances of anyone in my family only eating 4 fingers in one go is pretty slim (although my daughter isnt greedy when it comes to chocolate!).

                  I am going to give these the full 5 stars, because i think they are lovely, a great little buy and i love the taste of cadbury chocolate. I recommend you take a look at their website, its really good ;http://www.cadbury.co.uk/home/Pages/home.aspx

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    Great as an occasional treat

                    Cadbury's fingers have been around for as long as I can remember. I particularly remember them around Christmas time, and in all the years that have passed since, I'm pleased to say that these are still around and still taste as good as ever! Cadbury's describe these as "delicious finger shaped crisp biscuits smothered in yummy Cadbury milk chocolate".

                    I saw a box on my local shop shelf yesterday, on a special manufacturers offer for £1. I couldn't resist.
                    They look as taste just how I remember them, except maybe a little shorter in length. The packaging hasn't changed much either. The background colour of a royal purple turning into a lighter shade with the Cadbury logo, product name and a picture of the fingers. Down to side of this particular box is a yellow strip announcing that these are on offer. Inside the box, the fingers are lay in a black, grooved plastic tray, covered with a sealed film for freshness.

                    Fingers can be eaten in a variety of different ways. I prefer to nibble continiously until the whole finger is in my mouth, crushed and melting. My brother however, simply shoves them into his mouth, while my mum bites them in half.

                    The first thing you noticewhen eating fingers is the crunchy biscuit, and then the chocolate begins to melt in your mouth, releasing that much loved Cadbury's taste. The biscuit itself to baked to a perfected art.

                    As with the large majority of sweet treats, they are nutritional Hell. With a "per serving" calorie count of 120 (6%), 7.6g's worth of sugar (8.4%), 6g of fat (8.6%), 2.4g of saturates (12%) and salt at 0.08g (1.3%). Doesn't sound too bad for being a chocolate treat, but consider that Cadbury think that a serving size is just four fingers and it becomes a problem. An average box contains 24 fingers and I can easy polish off half a box before I even really notice. 12 fingers later and I'm 36% into my daily allowance of saturates!

                    Fingers are suitable for vegetarians but contain wheat, milk, soya and may contain traces of nuts.
                    Apart from the nutritional value (or lack of!), there is nothing else I dislike about these.
                    Fingers are available at a large variety of different places, more commonly in the supermarket, local shops and even the sweets stall on some markets.

                    The RRP of these is set at £1.45 but can be found on offer.

                    Overall, I will be buying these again, but not anytime soon. It's impossible to eat just one and with GDA stats like that, I think it's best to leave these to special occasions.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      Very addictive chocolate covered biscuit fingers which are hardly healthy!

                      While popping into Sainsbury's for my weekly groceries I came across Cadbury's chocolate fingers and being on special offer - just two for £2, I had to bag this bargain!

                      ~~~APPEARANCE~~~
                      The standard 125g box is of a royal purple colour giving a mysterious and seducing feel about them, while the word "fingers" are actually made out of these chocolate fingers and seem to be shrouded by wispy smoke. There is a vast range of information on the box including expiry date, ingredients and contact details. The catchphrase on the box is certainly fitting "one may lead to another..."

                      Once you open the box with ease, out pops a black corrugated tray with the fingers wrapped with cellophane to keep them fresh and cool! Then the fun begins...

                      ~~~TASTE, TEXTURE OF THE FINGERS~~~
                      The biscuit fingers are covered with a glossy thick-ish layer of milk chocolate (48%) which isn't particularly high in cocoa content! They are pleasantly crunch and very sweet due to the milk chocolate, they are truly extremely addictive (WARNING)!

                      I like the way the smooth chocolate is so supple to bite into, but then you also have the resistance of the biscuit which is satisfying in some ways. While the outer coating of chocolate really melts into your mouth giving a wonderful oozing sensation - divine!

                      Personally I like eating them on their own; however I have heard that many people eat them with a cup of coffee/tea as this melts the chocolate adding to their experience.

                      ~~~CRITCISMS AND OPINIONS~~~
                      Firstly, these fingers are not very good for the dieters out there since each biscuit alone is 30 calories and 1.5g of fat! They are very unhealthy and since there are like 30ish fingers in the packet coupled with being highly addictive - it exceeds nearly all your daily allowances, but it can be enjoyed as a one-off treat and it says on the packet "be treatwise."

                      Another annoying thing is the stacking of fingers in the black try, the try itself is a bit tacky and I really dislike it when the fingers have sometimes merged with other fingers and also they stack up in one part and aren't distributed equally.

                      The lack of good quality chocolate is a real set-back since the chocolate is of poor quality - you can tell slightly but it is so sugary and addictive. They are also laced with flavourings so it isn't 100% natural.

                      ~~~CONCLUSION~~~
                      Overall these finger-shaped biscuits covered with milk chocolate are a great treat and good for parties and those indulgent days! But they are not particularly healthy and the chocolate is a tad cheap!

                        Advantages

                        Disadvantages

                        Great at break time with a mug of tea

                        As I am a massive fan of Cadbury's chocolate and of biscuits in general, Cadbury's Chocolate Fingers are a perfect snack or treat for me. You can currently purchase a 125g box of these on the Tesco website for one pound which is a saving of just under fifty pence on the regular price. They are packaged in a box branded with the normal purple and white colour scheme often associated with this famous brand and so they are instantly recognisable as a quality product. Also printed on to the front are pictures of the tasty milk chocolate fingers all in a row. This packaging is recyclable but inside you will find the plentiful fingers displayed in a plastic tray with I suppose a plastic or cellophane covering, this serves to protect the biscuits and keep them fresh.

                        Each finger is roughly three inches in length and is crunchy crispy biscuit coated in a decent layer and covering of the lovely milk chocolate you would expect from the aforementioned manufacturer. Both parts to this snack really combine well and really complement each other to satisfy your craving for something sweet and tasty. I find I always enjoy them particularly if I eat them along with a drink of tea or a nice glass of milk.

                        One of the problems with these is that I can quite happily eat an entire box in the space of a few hours if that and obviously like any confectionery item they are not the healthiest of foods to eat. Just two fingers contain 60 calories and 3g of fat so if you are trying to eat healthily or you are watching your weight you will have to show immense self control not to eat a whole box like me otherwise it may set you back in your diet targets.

                        These are always really popular if placed on a plate or dish at an event like a children's party and I have seen them used to decorate and create really cool cakes in the design of something like a fort in the wild west, these are a fun, useful and most of all very tasty snacks but probably best enjoyed in moderation.

                          Disadvantages

                          sure way to get fat for summer

                          I adore these fingers and you know what they say one will lead to another. This is certainly the case! There should be something on the NHS to stop you from reaching for 'just one more' of these gorgeous fingers. You say to yourself after you have had 3 one more won't hurt but you end up getting through half the box!

                          You can get these chocolate fingers for around £1.50 at any supermarket they are always there. There is 125g and each box contains approximately 30 fingers which in my opinion is not enough! WE NEED MORE!

                          The box is cardboard which can be recycled and has fingers written in huge letters in a chocolate colour this makes you want to eat the box. No not literally but you know what I mean! The purple colour they use is also very attractive and pretty. Of course they have the mandatory Cadbury logo.

                          Each finger is coated in beautiful milk chocolate with a crunchy inside texture. They are about is tall as my little finger so you can eat one in only 2 bites if you wanted to. The fingers always taste crisp and fresh this is why I prefer these to the double chocoalte ones also less calories

                          Eating chocolate fingers won't exactly fill you up but it will give you a much needed boost if your lagging in the energy department. You can dunk them in tea have them for breakfast snack on them eat them with ice cream and many more things. They are very versitile.

                          I find one box dosen't last very long only a couple of days infact as I am always picking at these gorgeaus pieces of chocolate.

                          But now

                          The dreaded calorie count

                          DUN DUN DUHH!!

                          I must admint after reading what you are about to see I was shocked I didn't know it had that many calories......

                          Per 1 tiny weeny chocolate finger

                          Calories 34 ( CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT!?)
                          Protien 0.4
                          Carb 3.8
                          Fat 1.6 (Soooo not good! Trust me it does add up!)
                          Alcohol 0 (And I'm glad!)
                          Fibre 0

                          Ok so this definetly changes my opinion on these delicious fingers maybe I won't be dipping in the snack cupboard for these that often?

                            Disadvantages

                            Made by Cadburys which means they're delicious!

                            Cadburys Fingers are one of those chocolate items that I don't think anyone can resist because they are just so delicious.

                            They are long and thin finger shaped sticks of crunchy biscuit which is coated with Cadburys' delicious milk chocolate. These are probably one of the most moreish types of chocolate to have ever been made. Maybe it's because of the really crunchy biscuit inside, or the really milky and smooth chocolate, or just because they're so thin that one is never enough. Whatever it is, these are really addictive and I've not found anyone who doesn't like them.

                            These originally came in a long tray sharing pack but they can now be bought in a few different varieties including in a box with a flip-up lid, in a sharing bag like Maltesers, as Mini Fingers which are half the size and so even more moreish, as well as a few different flavours such as white and dark chocolate

                            These are the perfect thing to buy as a gift for someone or just to have at home at parties to share around. Although I could easily eat a whole box just by myself without sharing a single one!

                            A tray of these costs £1.50 and, although there are cheaper types of chocolate out there, there is nothing else around like these and I'm sure that everyone loves them.
