Cadbury Chocolate Fingers
Advantages: Great little fingers of biscuit covered with smooth chocolate
===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.
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'.

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.
