Cadbury Chocolate Fingers
Advantages: They taste lovely
Disadvantages: The calories!
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.
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.
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.
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
*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.
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.
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.
