Advantages: Cheap price, good treats
Disadvantages: Too addictive, cheap chocolate, very fattening
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!
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.
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!
Summary: Very addictive chocolate covered biscuit fingers which are hardly healthy!
