“ Brand: Cadbury's / Type: Milk „
Cadbury's Double Chocolate Fingers are quite a lot like their sister product, Cadbury's Chocolate Fingers. They are delicious, soft crispy biscuits covered in mouth watering delicious Cadburys Chocolate.
The difference is they have double the amount of chocolate than the standard ones, they are covered in a thick layer of Cadbury's chocolate, which you know will taste amazing with it being from Cadbury's.
Personally I can't tell that much difference, the standards are covered in a good layer of chocolate aswell, and as someone else on here said, in a blind-folded taste test, you might find it hard to tell the difference. That said, they are still remarkably addictive and I would recommend :D
These generally come in smaller boxes with 1 tray inside, great for an after-dinner treat with a cup of tea or coffee, they are great for sharing too (if you manage not to eat them all yourself). Each tray has about 18 fingers in them so if your having a few friends or family members over for dinner or a cuppa, these will sit nicely on the table and your visitors will be happy.
mmmm, Cadbury's Fingers - surely one of the most delicious of the entire Cadbury Range. So the prospect of 'Double Chocolate' Fingers is twice as enticing to me! Normally, the standard Chocolate Finger consists of a thin biscuit coated with a layer of chocolate - and the only difference between this and the double chocolate variety is the fact that the plain biscuit inside is now a chocolate one.

The biscuits are nice and crunchy on the inside, and the chocolate which surrounds them is actually quite thick. In terms of the overall flavour, they are very similar to regular Cadbury Chocolate Fingers, and if I was doing a blindfold taste test, I probably wouldn't be able to tell them apart. That said, they are really tasty and very moreish.

Although similar to regular Chocolate Fingers, these are biscuits which I could just keep eating and eating! They are especially good when combined with hot chocolate, although if you overindulge, you can easily end up feeling quite sick. From a healthy eating perspective, these bad-boys are probably best avoided - eating a whole box of Cadbury's will add over a thousand calories to your daily intake... you have been warned.

Cadbury chocolate fingers are basically long thin shaped biscuits with a layer of chocolate coating them, there a simple product but there in a good shape for eating and they also taste very nice.
These are very similar to the original chocolate fingers, they look the same on the outside and if I'm being honest they taste pretty much the same as well, the only difference being that instead of the middle being a plain biscuit flavour, its chocolate instead making these "double chocolate".
They do then look the same on the outside and its not until you bite into them that you can see the chocolate biscuit inside. The original biscuits do taste really chocolaty any way though as the plain biscuit gets a little overpowered by the chocolate surrounding it any way so the extra chocolate in these doesn't make much different to the taste.
They do perhaps taste a little bit more chocolaty but I do like the biscuit taste in the other's as well so I don't really [prefer these to the original however if someone was blindfolded they probably couldn't even tell which was which any way.
All in all then, these biscuits are still really nice, of course they are there chocolate fingers but I didn't really rate them much as there's not really an improvement in the original product and they actually taste pretty much the same.
I like Cadburys Fingers but tried the Double Chocolate ones today and didn't enjoy them as much as the normal ones.
The difference is that the plain biscuit is now chocolate and even though it's got a nice cocoa flavour I don't think the biscuit goes very well with the milk chocolate coating now.
The biscuits are lovely and crunchy, they snap when you break one in half and don't drop a load of crumbs all over you. I think the problem is that the attraction of Fingers for me is that the plain biscuit is a wicked contrast to the creamy milk chocolate but there isn't enough of a contrast now that the biscuit is chocolate as well.
The chocolate on the Fingers hasn't changed and it's still the same smooth and creamy chocolate that is on all the different Fingers. It melts dead quick so watch you don't hold it in your hand for too long or else you'll get into a bit of a mess! lol
I reckon the best way to eat a Cadburys Finger is to suck all the chocolate off and then eat the biscuit afterwards. Then you get the crunchy biscuit, I reckon this is usually my fave part of the biscuit but not with these Double Chocolate ones because I'm just not mad keen on the flavour of them.
I think I will stick to the normal Fingers now or next time I might try a box of the dark chocolate ones because I bet those are yummier than these.
Cadbury Double Chocolate Fingers are chocolate flavoured biscuits which have been dipped in Cadbury milk chocolate.
The box is rectangular in shape and is that unmistakable Cadburys puple colour. The front cover of the box shows the fingers stood to attention in a line which is starting to topple like dominoes. There is a caption on the front "one may lead to another..."
I have this evening found this caption to be true! I had bought this box of double chocolate fingers as a treat at work for me and my work chums. Each day this week I have gone into the office and said "argh, I forgot to bring in the chocs again". Well, it's too late now, because they are all gone and have all been eaten by ME whilst sitting here at the computer ;-)
Each finger is about the length of my fingers. I should point of here that I do have rather teeny hands so large handed chaps might feel a bit let down by the size.
Each one is a stick of chocolate biscuit covered in chocolate and each one can be munched in three bites or so.
What I like abiut these biscuits is that when crunching away you are hit by "ooh, this bit is the biscuit and yep, it's covered in chocolate". You can really taste the two parts to the finger as a whole in your mouth. Nice.
The only negatives I can see are that obviously, being a chocolate based snack, the calorific content is high. But let's gloss over that... Also, I can't tell much difference between these and the normal Cadbury fingers.
On the plus side, I did get my box for half price at Tescos although unhelpfully I'm afraid to say that I can't remember for the life of me how much I paid for them. This is because, although I am a bit frugal/a tight wad a treat should be a treat and if it's expensive, I don't really want to know about it because that might lead to guilt ;-)
Some cadbury inventions are instant classics. I remember some of their flops such as Asteroids and three wishes but Cadbury fingers are probably one of their best sellers and have been for quite some time. For along time no changes were made to fingers, there were no new varieties for quite some time!
Here however are the double chocolate versions of the much loved fingers. Some of you may be hesitant and thnking why change a good thing! To be honest there isnt a huge amount of differeance. For those who dont know cadbury fingers are soft plain buiscuits covered in milk choc. Sounds simple and it is but they just work and are very hard to stop eating. In the double choc version the buiscuit in the middle is a chocolate flavoured buiscuit. I personally couldnt taste a huge amount of difference but its hard to say when you dont have the normal version to compare it to.
These fingers are really nice. They are perfect with a cup o' tea! They are not a bad price either. You get around 30 fingers in s apack and it cost me 60p. I do think this may have been a promotinal price so expect them to be around £1. places like asda however often have a BOGOF offer on the boxes though!
These are currently avaiable as a buy one get one free offer in my local Tesco so fancying something to consure alongside an afternoon mug of coffee I decided to get these as my first choice of Hob Nobswas not available having sold out at my local small Tesco. Normally they are £1.54 so effectively thy were seventy seven pence a packet with the offer. It was only when I got home that I noticed these were double chocolate rather than the normal ones as the boxes look identical and I never read the label.
To be honest once I had dunked them in my coffee there was no noticeable difference in taste. They look exactly the same and they have the same outer coating of Cadbury milk chocolate however the biscuit inside is chocolate flavour. The taste difference is negligble, they have the same crunchy bite to them and the texture of the chocolate is smooth however the taste is the same.
These are ok for a change and always remind me of party food from when I was a kid ut to be honest there are not that many in a pack and they are pricy if they were not on offer. Not something I would buy again especially at full price.
When i went to the supermarket i saw these on the shelf, but didnt realise they were any different to the normal ones, as i hadnt seen them advertised anywhere. When i did see they were double chocolate i just had to have them because im a chocoholic. When i tried them i was impressed with them, it is a kind of chocolate flavoured shortbread biscuit in the middle which is very nice, covered in a milk chocolate. They are very melt in your mouth, When i started eating them i couldnt stop and the whole packet was gone. They are very addictive and the nicest chocolate fingers i have had. When buying be careful to pick up the right ones because the packaging is very similar to the original ones. I am so glad they bought out these as im not a great lover of biscuits but these are delicious.
When i frst brought this, again as with many people, i thought it was the original fingers! However, i thought i may as well try them out!As a solid chocolate lover i was pleased to see the "double chocolate". But, it wasnt as good as i thought it would be! To be honest, personally i tasted no major difference between thses and the original fingers! Infact, i prefer the originals alot more! After eating just a few, the chocolate did begin to get abit too much! It made me feel quite sickly,which is rather rare for a girl like me who loves chocolate! So, therefore i recommend these to all those who can handle lots of chocolate. And for the ones oout there, like me, who like chocolate in smaller dose, i recommend you opt for the originals!! But, dont get me wrong, apart from all mentioned above, i did actually like them, if limited to just a few :)
The first time I bought these was by accident because I didn't realise the change in packaging, although it may look obvious to you reading this now. These are different to regular chocolate fingers as they are...double chocolate. It was bound to happen. It's basically a chocolate finger but rather than plain old biscuit, it's "crisp chocolate flavour biscuits" covered with "yummy Cadbury Milk chocolate". Right, well - no, let us not deceive ourselves. It's just chocolate biscuit in chocolate. Double chocolate. The end.
Anyway, I have to be honest, when I first bit into these, I was disgusted. The chocolate biscuit is nothing like the other biscuit, because it's chocolate. Of course. I think these lose a lot of their chocolate finger attraction because there is no contrast between the chocolate and biscuit because they're both chocolate. If you bite into the end and look at it, you can't see where chocolate ends and biscuit begins. I don't know, I just always liked seeing the white biscuit by the chocolate. Maybe it's just me. Also I think the mix of chocolate/biscuit is why the regular fingers work because they compliment each other. Why would you coat CHOCOLATE with CHOCOLATE? It's redundant!
I could not get on with these with the first packet and I took to just eating the chocolate coating and throwing away the biscuit. I then started to suck the chocolate off instead and then throwing away the biscuit. The biscuit was clearly destined for the bin. I'm a bit less ridiculous now though and I don't mind eating them that much, but I don't really recommend these when in comparison with other types of chocolate fingers. Regular chocolate fingers are the way to go, undoubtedly. There's just not much to these at all. Chocolate biscuit is boring in taste and appearance.
Anyway these are around the same as regular chocolate fingers in nutrition so I guess it's up to you and your preferred taste, but I really do think that regular or perhaps dark chocolate is the way to go. These are by no means terrible and I will eat them now but...come on, it's double chocolate. Couldn't they have been a little more creative?
