I am not the world's biggest fudge fan so tried this only at the suggestion of a friend. I'm glad I did. This choc covered little fudge product is delicious, not overpoweringly sweet like most fudge I try but still sweet enough to be very pleasing.
The bar is only palmsize, very light weight but so full of flavour that it feels satisfying anyway.I have quite a small handbag and found I can easily sneak a Fudge bar in for easy on the go snacking but that's probably not good for my teeth. Unless you've made fudge yourself or take the trouble to read the product label you may not realise how much sugar there is in fudge. This little bar had as much as some other bars twice it's size. You can't make low sugar fudge so it is not a criticism to say about the sugar just an observation. The fact that the fudge sticks a bit to the teeth increases my caution a bit.
Apart from snacking I have found this product can be melted gently in a Bain Marie (heat proof bowl over a pan of boiling water)with a little milk to make a fudge dessert sauce. One bar would make a one person serving. The product also freezes OK as I broke some up and froze some into some vanilla icecream. It has a nice smooth texture as bought and when used as an ingredient in recipes. So at 30p each in my local newsagent this bar is a real bargain. I should add that it's bright orange packaging is easy to open and get the bar out.
I went the cadburys world last week in Birmingham with my family. I bought 10 fudges for £1.50. I haven't had a fudge bar for about 9 years and I tell you they still tasty as yummy as ever.
There is just enough in one fudge. The wrapper doesn't seem to have changed much at all. Which I thought was good as when I seen it childhood memories came flooding back.
It's like a soft noughourt( sorry can't spell it) wrapped in chocolate. It's delicious.
Great for kids as it's soft enough for them also great for adults lol
I think if you was to buy these in a shop they would be 0.20p each which I think they are worth 20p all day long. I also baked a cake this week and broke a fudge up and put it on top and I tell you it was yummy and the fudge made it.
Great buy and at a reasonable price.
I picked up a 6 pack of fudge from B and M Bargains for 99p. They are also available from most supermarkets and major stores for a similar price.
*What the fudge are they?*
Fudge bars are produced and marketed by Cadbury's. They remind me of my youth (I was an 80's child) as they would always be one of the cheapest chocolate bars in the shop - they also have very retro packaging to them. I was therefore surprised to learn that they were launched in the 1950's under the name of milk fudge.
The chocolate bars are individually wrapped in a foil type packaging which I imagine prolongs they're shelf life and is perhaps what makes them taste so fresh. I bought this pack a few days ago and the best before date was September 2014.
The chocolate bar is very small, thin and long (around the size of your middle finger - of course that depends on how long your finger is)! It is mostly made of fudge surrounded by a very thin layer of cadbury's chocolate.
*What the fudge do they taste like?*
The chocolate is as you would expect from cadbury's and taste like their ordinary dairy milk - as there is very little of it however the overpowering taste is that of fudge. The fudge itself is pleasant. It is not too sugary like some fudges can be - although neither is it creamy like some of the more high end fudges you can get (eg clotted cream fudges). For the price however I would not expect a luxury fudge and I don't think the product sells itself in that way, so neither was I disappointed nor did I feel cheated!
*What the fudge is in it? I'm watching my calories don't you know!*
Each bar contains 115 calories (6% of you guideline daily amount)
4g of fat (6% of your guideline daily amount)
16g sugar (18% of your guideline daily amount) - shockingly quite high for something which doesn't taste too sugary!
*What the fudge else do I need to know?*
Suitable for veggies.
*What the fudge else should they do?*
Cadbury's have branched out into fudge yoghurts, fudge hot chocolate and fudge ice creams. However all I would really like is a slightly larger fudge bar!
I would definitely recommend if you're looking for a quick chocolate fix, but don't expect too much. I am knocking a star off due to the blandness - it may not be for everyone al though I will keep buying.
Cadbury's fudge is just not on par with any other chocolate within its price range- there I said it. Especially seen as the price of the fudge has risen to 25p, which in my book is pretty steep given the current economic downturn (F. Figari et al, 2011). When you throw another 35-40p in the mix you can get chocolate of a higher standard and quantity - given you shop around and avoid overpriced stores.
Let us first look at the packaging which is essentially the poorest component of the Cadbury's fudge. The fudge is frankly packed too loosely and this gives the impression, that their is far more fudge than the unbeknownst customer is purchasing. False advertising? I think so. The quality of the chocolate is of Cadbury's usual standard, however the layer is so thin that even the least sweet toothed of our ever growing population (think waist line not immigrants) can't grasp enough chocolate flavour to give it a thorough intellectual roasting.
Finally after the paper thin chocolate, we find ourselves at the supposed key component, the fudge. Whilst the flavour of the fudge might impress a small child who's palate has not yet appreciated true fudge,it does not impress a man who's palate understands the full spectrum of culinary delight which the world has to offer (e.g. not limited to pot noodles and monster munch - no judgment intended). It's waxy texture is reminiscent of plasticine and the flavour leaves much to be desired, infact i'd say anyone who enjoys this **** (excuse my french, as my readers will know I don't often swear, this is a testiment to how poor the quality of the product is) would probably enjoy plasticine more!
In conclusion if you find yourself weighed down to by 25p keep it in your pocket and wait until you accrue enough change to get yourself something worth consuming to increase your risk of type 2 diabetes( J Montonen, P Knekt, T Härkänen, 2005)

As a child I remember Cadbury finger of fudge, the packaging hasn't really changed much from what I remember, how-ever they do seem do appear slightly smaller than how I remember them. I often used to get a finger of fudge from my Nan every week and I'd quite often pick a few up in the shop when spending my pocket money (which was only about £1) every week. A single finger of fudge used to cost me about 15p, and I think you can still buy them now for this price. They do also sell finger if fudge in multi-packs as well which cost approximately £1.51 for a pack of 6.

The fudge can't really be mistaken for another chocolate treat as the wrapper is a bright orange colour, which then has blue writing which says fudge on the front on the front of the bar. The bar itself is about the length of a standard chocolate bar but its much thinner and not as wide. The wrapper is made from a plastic foil which helps to keep the bar fresh. On the front of the bar is states that there is 115 calories per bar and that Cadbury is the official treat provider of London 2012. On the back of the packaging there is a list of ingredients and nutritional information, it also states the best before date and contact details should you not be happy with the product.
The following is per bar
Calories - 115 (6.4% RDA)
Sugars - 16.3g (19.2% RDA)
Fat - 3.9g (5.6% RDA)
Saturates - 2.2g (11.0% RDA)
Salt - 0.10g (2.5% RDA)
* ~ * THE FUDGE * ~ *
The wrapper is easily teared open from one of the end's and reveals a gorgeous smelling fudge finger. The bar itself is approximately 10.5cm long and just under 2cm wide. The milk chocolate coats the fudge finger all the way round and you can see a slight ripple effect on the top of the bar from the chocolate. In terms of smell it smell's mouth-watering and very chocolatey and sweet. I can't really smell the fudge, just chocolate. As I took my first bite my teeth sink straight through the thin chocolate coating and the soft fudge. It filled my mouth with a lovely creamy taste that was slightly chewy but also soft when against my tongue and teeth. The fudge is a caramel colour and is quite soft, especially when left in a reasonably hot room. As the thin chocolate layer melts in your mouth you begin to taste the creamy fudge which fills your mouth with a lovely sweet taste.
After finishing the finger of fudge I felt satisfied. . and thirsty. There isn't much of an after taste in your mouth, just a slight creamy and chocolatey taste but this wasn't too sweet or a nasty, lingering taste. After eating the fudge I did crave another one as this was so delicious and it was tempting to have another one seeing as the bar was so small, how-ever I did resist and decided I would have another one the following day or later on in the week.
* ~ * OVERALL OPINION * ~ *
I used to enjoy Cadbury finger of fudge as a child and I still enjoy it now. Although it's a small bar it helps any sugar/sweet cravings I may have and leaves me feeling satisfied but not bloated or feeling sick. The 6 pack of these are great as a treat every now and again for children and for £1.51 per pack from my local co-op I would say this is fairly good value. The bad thing about the fudge is that it does contain a lot of sugar so I definitely wouldn't have one of these every-day, but maybe as an occasional treat. It's great to see this chocolate treat still selling and still popular. This treat will stay a firm favourite of mine and I recommend others to try it if they haven't already.

I bought some selection boxes in Tesco last week and they had Cadbury Fudge bars in them, after humming "A finger of fudge is just enough to give your kids a treat" all the way round the store I realised I hadn't had one of these since I was little. Temptation got the better of me and the next time I popped to the local shop I bought one.
Cadbury Fudge bars are smaller than your average chocolate bar and when I was younger they were advertised as being acceptable for a treat in-between meals. They were first introduced in 1948 so have been around for a good few years. A fudge bar today will set you back approximately 25p.
Fudge bars are sold in a foil wrapper which is mainly orange in colour with only the ends the usual Cadbury purple colour. Fudge is written in blue across the centre of the pack along with the usual Cadbury logo. The back of the wrapper gives all the usual information such as ingredients, nutritional information and nut allergy warnings. Despite being written in quite small writing this information is easy enough to read for those who wish to.
A single fudge bar contains 115 calories, 16.3g of sugars and 3,9 g of fat. I think this is a lot for a bar that is barely 6 inches long and 1/2 inch wide. Its hardly substantial.
Cadbury Fudge is literally as the song goes a finger of fudge covered in chocolate. Although the chocolate isn't very thick it has the usual rich smooth taste of Cadbury. The fudge is equally as delicious, it has a rich sweet creamy taste and has a lovely smooth texture. The fudge is nice and soft and would be suitable for small children.
Cadbury fudge is a lovely chocolate bar but without wanting to sound greedy its just not big enough for adults, I feel that for the grown ups Cadbury could make this into a twin bar along the lines of twirl or bounty. This said though I would definitely recommend Cadbury Fudge bars, they taste as good as I remember, rich sweet and creamy. They are high in calories and 1 bar doesn't seem enough but I would definitely buy one again.
I remember these from back when i was around ten! - They bring back lots of memories as i got one every fornight from my dad! After seeing them in my local Tesco a few days ago at just 19p each, I got one for old times sake.
Admittedly they're not huge, but in my opinion 19p is reasonable.
The packaging is simple, but attracts the customer (especially kids!) because of the bright orange packaging, with 'FUDGE' in bold purple writing, along with 'cadburys' in the corner, making it clear what the product is, the packaging includes the calories and ingredients on the back.
It's a really nice sweet treat, with a generous sized bar of fudge covered with a thin layer of Cadburys milk chocolate.
Smell wise it has a sweet and chocolate aroma.
The texture is extremely soft and it melts easily in your mouth, causing the taste to be prolonged and leaving you satisfied! It's extremely sweet and can be at times too sweet. The fudge goes nice and gooey easily so there's no worry about it hurting your teeth.
At 110 calories and 3 grams of fat in each small bar (yet you get a decent amount to leave you with your chocolate fix!), i'd say it's worth it if you're in the mood for something chocolatey and sweet.
Regardless of how good I'm trying to be with regard to my diet every now and again I need a sugar rush, I need a hit of chocolate, I need something naughty (but nice) to see me through to dinner. It's then that I turn to my secret weapon - the finger of Fudge.
This bar of soft fudge covered in milk chocolate has been made by Cadbury since 1948 and is still holding its own against more modern sweets. Weighing in at approximately 26gr (sorry I had to calculate this from the calories, I was too quick in eating the bar) I find this the ideal boost, the bar itself is small enough to minimise the number of calories I'm taking on board whilst being large enough to give me the instant hit of sugar and flavour that I need. Given the small size of the bar the price is correspondingly low. It currently has a recommended retail price of 17p - ideal for those of us who are also on a financial diet.
Despite the low price the quality of the product is high. The fudge centre actually tastes like it should. There's a smoothness to the sweet, sugary, fudgy taste whilst the texture has a very slight graininess to it - think creamy fudge that's just beginning on its journey to become butter tablet. The chocolate that covers the bar is standard issue Cadbury's and it complements the centre perfectly.
So after two bites (three if I'm in company and acting 'proper') the bar's gone and I'm congratulating myself on only having eaten a small sweet to tie me over until the next meal. But am I kidding myself? What's really contained in the finger of Fudge that I've just eaten?
Well looking at the wrapper will show you that you've just consumed 115 calories, 16.3gr sugar, 3.9gr fat, 2.2gr saturates and 0.1gr salt - for the occasional treat these are definitely not excessive figures. The wrapper also shows the proportion that these make up of the Guideline Daily Amount (GDAs) - if you're an adult eating the bar yourself ignore the GDA percentages, in really small type at the opposite end of the wrapper it tells you that these GDAs apply to children (on the premise presumably that this is a child's sweet because of its size and not suitable for us adults who like to fill our faces with larger bars of chocolate).
I haven't seen this product advertised for some time but back in the day the rhyme always used to start "A finger of fudge is just enough............"
For once in my life I actually agree with an advert - a finger of fudge is just enough to see me through to my next meal!
Lunch time is fast approaching and I need a little something to take the edge off a very busy day, that will give me a small chocolate kick, when a familiar song comes into my head,
Sing along if you know the tune:
A finger a fudge is just enough to give the kids a treat
A Cadbury fudge is just enough until it's time to eat
It's full of Cadbury goodness but very small and neat
A finger a fudge is just enough ........
I think that's how it went.
I popped to the vending machine and I was in luck, at only 17p and 115 calories I was sold. The familiar Orange and purple wrapper was calling to me, and to make me feel all patriotic there is a message on the pack stating "official treat provider of London 2012"
Well you really do get a small, keep you going, couple of bites but for the money and size it gets 5 stars from me, thin chocolate outside with a smooth fudge inside mmmm.
Fudge produced by Cadbury is a really lovely chocolate bar that I would group along with others such as the Chomp or a Freddo bar. It is presented in an orangey coloured wrapper with purple/blue ends with its name printed on the front in blue lettering.
Inside you will find a stick of ever such tasty fudge coated with the smooth milk chocolate Cadbury are famous for. The combination of these two ingredients make this product extremely flavoursome and as the fudge is fairly soft it is not too tough on your teeth, I suppose it could become a lot more difficult to bite off and chew though if you kept it in the refrigerator for some time. These are a brilliant snack when enjoyed with a glass of milk or a cup of tea, but then I would say that of many biscuits or confectionery items. I like these and enjoy them whenever I eat them but because of their size and their softness they are gone far too quickly compared to some other bars.
You can buy these for roughly 15 pence and so are a great pocket money purchase for children and as I said before they will not be as hard on their teeth as some sweets on the market. At 110 calories and 3.9g of fat although not as healthy as a carrot one of these would be a great treat for someone who is dieting or a person who is trying to be healthy in their choices most of the time.
I have been eating the Cadbury's chocolate fudge for as long as I can remember, ever since I was a small child in fact and have many found memories of buying quite a few after school when I was younger. Especially as they were and still are very cheap to buy costing just 15p for a (25.5g) bar which has to be about one of the cheapest selling chocolate bars around. It's still quite popular even now, more so amongst children as it's quite affordable.
Cadburys fudge has been around for a long time ever since it was first launched way back in 1948.
The chocolate is easily recognisable as it has a bright orange wrapper with a slight touch of purple on both ends with the word fudge largely printed on the front in bold purple letters.
The bar its self is quite thin and small compared to your average standard chocolate size chocolate bar.
The chocolate fudge is a nice tasting but yet small chocolate bar which has a nice thin layer of Cadburys real milk chocolate on the outside part with a thicker layer of delicious fudge in the middle centre. When you bite into the fudge it's quite soft and chewy, but its consistency is just right which blends really well with the milk chocolate.
It's great for eating as a treat now and then, and because of their size you don't have to feel to guilty about eating one as they contain just 115kCal energy, and 3.9g of fat.
I would recommend you try one as they have a nice taste, are cheap, small and light, make a perfect light treat and are manufactured by the ever so popular long established cadburys plc brand.
Cadbury's fudge consists of an outer coating of cadbury's milk chocolate wrapped around a long semi circular piece of soft fudge. It was first introduced by Cadbury's (the second largest confectionary manufacturers in the world) in 1946 and has proved a great hit with children (and adults!) ever since. Most famous for the slogan 'a finger of fudge is just enough to give your kids a treat', as well as the single bars, multipacks and Cadbury fudge ice cream are also now available. Expect to pay 15p for an individual bar and £1 for four ice creams.
Cadbury fudge cannot be mistaken - it comes in an easy open bright orange wrapper with purple ends and the word 'fudge' is written in bright blue edged with purple across the centre of the wrapper. Keep in a cool dark place (the chocolate will melt if it is hot) and it should keep for several months.
A standard 25.5 gram bar contains 110 calories, 16.1 grams of sugar and 3.9 grams of fat (of which 2.2 is saturated). As a chocolate bar, this was never going to be healthy, although, as one of the smaller bars in the range, the amount of sugar and saturated fat is particularly high. These are also suitable for vegetarians and coeliacs.
There is something very simple and satisfying about a cadbury's fudge bar. The chocolate, as you would expect from Cadbury's, is smooth, thick and milky, and the fudge inside is very sweet and soft (almost melt in the mouth).The combination of the two is really delicious, although my only complaint is the bar is too small - very good as a naughty snack for children though.
What is it?
A bar of fudge.
A slim bar of fudge covered with a layer of milk chocolate.
What do I think?
I often get this, because this is one of the cheaper chocolate bars on the shelf and there is a fair portion of it for the price of just 15p.
The bar of fudge is fairly soft and chewy. The texture is a little crumbly but fluid enough to give rise to a solid moist bar of fudge. The fudge tastes more like solidified caramel and is surprisingly not very sweet for fudge. I feel this fudge is very basic, and probably only has basic ingredients, when you've tried home-made fudge, you will know that this fudge is so far from properly made fudge, and you'll be sure to never want to buy this again.
Compared to homemade fudge, the taste of this is in a different world. This is probably less buttery in taste and being composed of mainly sugar, the crumbly texture of it also resembles the graininess of table sugar. I think being covered in milk chocolate helps a bit, the balance out the texture a bit more and it also helps to hold it the crumbly bits... The taste is also helped by the milk chocolate, as when you bite into it, the surprisingly bland fudge gives way to the sweeter milk chocolate and there and then you come to realise why its there and you do appreciate the chocolate more than anything.
Bearing in mind that the fudge is by Cadbury's - experts who are better at making chocolate than the fudge...
Thanks for reading.
I have always had a sweet tooth since I was a child, and I remember buying these from the shop, so not only do they satisfy my chocolate or sweet craving, they remind me of being a kid, how nice!
I haven't bought one of these for a while but I think you can get them from most shops for about 20p. and they are a small bar so they can't be too unhealthy (well that's my excuse). You do also get the tiny fudges in a box of cadburys heroes, which I always eat first if we ever have a box.
The bar is mainly soft, creamy, sweet fudge, covered in a very thin layer of lovely cadburys chocolate. I do sometimes find that these are a bit better if they are left to go soft, if they have been in the fridge the fudge can go a bit hard and grainy, and it's not as nice that way. The fudge is always the perfect consistency when it's a bit warm, it's soft in texture but not gooey and sloppy.
Cadbury have a great reputation with their chocolate bars, and just because this one is small, I think it gets overlooked a lot, but I really enjoy it, and anyone who likes fudge will love this little bar. A great little snack. Especially for children I think as it's that little bit smaller it's a lot easier to manage.
This used to be my favourite chocolate treat when I was little and, although I don't have them very often anymore, I do still really love them.
A Fudge bar is quite simply a long thin finger of soft fudge which is covered in Cadbury milk chocolate. This used to be one of those popular kids' treats because they are small and didn't cost very much but I think that as I've got older, they've got even more popular and it's not just kids who eat them anymore.
The fudge inside really is very soft so it's not the sort of sweet that's going to break your teeth and it doesn't require lots of chomping and biting, like some other fudge bars. It's very smooth and also very rich and sweet but not at all sickly. The chocolate outer layer is that delicious Cadbury milk chocolate which is very creamy and smooth and is just the right amount to make the whole bar taste wonderful.
Because it's only a small bar, they are perfect for young children, which means that they probably won't satisfy any adult sweet or chocolate craving quite enough, but just as a little treat they're the perfect size. Although they're quite small, I do think that the bar is ridiculously cheap, costing only 15p which also makes it a very affordable chocolate bar.
Fudge bars can be bought singly or in multipacks which work out quite well if you eat a fair few of them. They're also in the Cadbury Heroes selection box of chocolates and the Fudge is always the first one that I go for.
