Advantages: Great tasting, Cheap to buy
Disadvantages: High sugar content
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 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.
