      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I love the quality that the chocolate has covering crisp crunchy biscuit.

      Cadburys Chocolate Fingers. Mini Breaks.


      Yummy and delicious. Chocolate Mini Fingers six packets inside of Cadburys MINI chocolate fingers, like the original ones only smaller.

      These come in a Large purple coloured packet with the individual packets inside. On the outside cover there is a large six made out of little lined up mini sticks of chocolate fingers. It states "mini breaks one may lead to another" On the front. It also tells you that be treat wise get to know your GDAs, and tells you to see the back of the packet. On looking on the back of the packet you will read the GDAs as Calories 115 thats 5.7percent. Sugars 7.7grams thats 8.5percent. and Fat 6.0gs, thats 8.6percent. Saturates at 2.4gs, thats 12.0percent. and finally salt at 0.11gs, thats 1.8percent.
      To be enjoyed as a part of a healthy active lifestyle.

      Inside these little packets, which incidentally you can pop into a school lunch pack, or simply give as an after dinner treat, you will be eating little sticks of milk chocolate covered biscuits, which are crisp and melt on the tongue. The taste is of sheer delight, milk chocolate thats been poured over crisp biscuit, and is absolutely delicious, I keep mine in the fridge so that they are cool, which is the way I prefer my chocolate at any time.

      I find these taste great, sweet but also a nice treat to have with a cuppa and they are great to dip into a cup of tea.

      These are suitable for vegetarians.

      I find these a great idea, because unlike the larger chocolate biscuits once they are openned you have to eat them, but with these little six packets you can have a packet at any time you fancy.

      I like the quality of the chocolate, as Cadburys usually is and it has a really creamy taste and the biscuit inside is crisp and delicious.

      I have purchased a couple of these multi packets to keep in the fridge to feed little hungry children after they have lunch or dinner with me at the weekends. I think that these are a great invention and will be buying these again.

      Warning.

      These chocolate fingers contain wheat, milk soya, and may contain nuts. Incase you have an allergy to these products.

      Store in a cool dry place, mine are kept quite happily in my fridge.

      Ingredients :

      Milk chocolate. 48percent. Milk. Sugar. Cocoa Butter. Cocoa mass. Vegtable fat. Emulsifiers. Soya lecthin. E476. Flavourings. Wheat flour. Sodium bicarbonate. Ammonium bicarbonate. Flavouring.

      There are siz packets each containing 22grams of chocolate fingers.

      They have a long sell by date on the back of the packet.

      Thanks for reading and rating my reviews.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Make yourself sick by gorging yourself on these!

      Having just devoured a packet of these in under 10 minutes I decided to share my fingers addiction with the rest of you and hopefully provide an interesting review.

      Cadbury's mini breaks are for all intense purposes the same as the usual cadbury's fingers only they are half the size of the usual fingers. They also come in a special resealing packet, so you can keep dipping in there thoughout the day, until you discover there are none left.

      The first thing to be said is that these should come with some kind of health warning, as they are seriously addictive. It is damn hard to open a packet without polishing them off immediately. The biscuit one side and milk chocolate the other combination is honed to perfection. My personal preference is to gnash my way through a third of them and then savour the rest. Must admit that I sometimes feel a little like a test subject because I am CERTAIN that they have tested this product so much that they can predict how people will eat them and what is the optimum size packet before somebody feels sick of them etc...

      What cadbury's is doing here with this product is reducing their portion slightly enabling the daytime crowd (workers during morning, afternoon, lunch break) to pig out, or to make the evening crowd (everybody) feel less guilty about scoffing an entire packet than they would about scoffing an entire normal packet of cadbury's fingers. Crafty.

      Price - they can be found on offer for a pound at supermarkets although the usual price is about 1.29 or 1.39. A pound shop might do them cheaper, although I haven't seen them. Oh and watch out for the one that gets trapped in the bottom of the bag!

      If you have self control, dont buy them at all, as it is much cheaper to buy normal cadbury's fingers, if you can.

      In summary, don't buy them!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Perfect with a cup of tea and not too expensive either, perfect

        These are a must for any tea drinker or coffee drinker. I love these with cuppa and they are perfect size to.

        I love the way they melt in my tea and how perfect they taste I truly love them!

        Ok so you normally buy them in a packet of 6 and each mini packet contains around 6 to 8 fingers so it is an ideal snack not too many calories either. Because each packet contains only 6 or 8 fingers they can easily be put into your pocket or lunch box for an easy picking break. Ideal for the kids lunch box too.

        Chocolate fingers are made simply of a crunchy biscuit and covered in the traditional fair trade cadburys chocolate. There is nothing more to them but the milk chocolate is heavenly!


        I have never met anyone who does not like cadburys fingers, if you do not like milk chocolate they do come in white chocolate and dark too, so there is a perfect match for everyone.

        They are not too expensive either £1.50ish will get you a packet or 6 minis
        £0.99 Will get you a standard box and £0.69 will get you a single packet.

        You can easily justify buying them because it saves worrying about what snacks to buy your sorted.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great treat or packed lunch filler.

        I am an out and out Cadbury fan and the chocolate fingers are a must especially when drinking a cup of tea, the Cadbury chocolate surrounding the lovely biscuit. Yum.

        Cadbury's Mini Breaks Chocolate Fingers are just mini versions of the usual larger, I mean longer fingers. I don't know why they are called Mini Breaks rather than just Mini's. But this is what they are and they are just as tasty, quantities have remained the same and I think this is important when making a miniature version of a product. They still taste the same, just smaller.

        The biscuit is shortcake shaped as a cylinder and coated in a thick layer of Cadbury chocolate. The larger fingers come in a box and it is easy to eat a whole box, whereas these come in smaller 22 gram bags, they are perfect for children and lunch boxes as well as adult snacks. It also means that you can't really over indulge (well you could open all 6 packs from the multi pack but...) so they are more a more sensible buy if like me, you completely lack self control.

        The biscuit is crunchy and soft, it isn't too overpowering and not dry as shortcake can often be. The chocolate definitely enhances and makes a great partner for the biscuit. I would say these fingers are more tasty than the shortcake biscuits in the Cadbury packs, and they are effectively the same, just didn't amounts of ingredients.

        The packaging as I previously mentioned is a multi pack bag containing 6 x 22 gram mini bags, like any Cadbury product it is all Cadbury purple with pictures of the mini fingers on the front. They are called Mini Breaks and the strap line on the packaging reads: Mini Breaks one may lead to another. I am completely confused as to why it's called Mini Breaks and not Mini Fingers, the strap line would still work?!

        The Nutritional Information (per bag):
        Fat of which saturates: 2.4 grams
        Carbohydrate of sugars: 7.7 grams
        Energy - kcal: 115 kcal

        Price:
        Asda are currently selling the multi pack bags of 6 for £1.27 or 2 bags for £2.00.

        These are a great treat but terribly addictive just like their larger sibling!

          Yummy

          I absolutely love Cadbruy's chocolate fingers and have eaten them since I was a child right up to being an adult, so when I saw they did a mini version I just had to buy them for my son to take for his packed lunch.

          Cadbury's Mini Breaks Chocolate Fingers are exactly what they sound like, miniture versions of Chocolate Fingers. They come in a multipack of 6 bags. In each bag there is 22g. The fingers are about an inch long and thinner than the original ones and you get about 8 little biscuits in each bag.

          For those who have never tried Chocolate Fingers, they are a yummy shortcake biscuit covered in Cadbury Chocolate. I am a big fan of Cadbury's and like most of the products they have. Chocolate Fingers are one of those biscuits that you could eat and eat without realising you've eaten nearly a full pack, they really are that nice.

          On the front of the packaging it says 'mini breaks......one may lead to another' and if I was eating these this would probably be true. I think the mini breaks are perfect for children but from an adult's point of view there would just not be enough.

          The nutritional information says that there is 115 calories in a bag and 6.0g of fat. So again this is fine for a treat size bag of chocolates.

          My children have all eaten these mini breaks since I have bought them, they think they are really nice and they have now become a regular on our shopping list. They are available from most supermarkets and cost about £1.30 but I think you can get them for £1 from places like Iceland and Farmfoods.

          Cadbury's Mini Breaks Chocolate Fingers are yet another great product Cadbury's. They are perfect for children and great as a little treat for adults. A miniture version of a loverly chocolate biscuit snack.

          Tasty bite sized snacks!

          I am a huge fan of Cadburys confectionary products. I really think they are the superior brand ont he market and nothing compares to them. Cadburys dairy milk is just amazing and they seem to wave that magic wand over everything they do. Cadburys mini breaks chocolate fingers are no exception to this rule.

          The mini breaks fingers come in pretty funky packaging. They come in a large purple bag (traditional cadburys colours) with the cadburys fingers logo and pictures of fingers lined up on the front. and mini breaks in the middle. The packaging easily opens to reveal six small bags of fingers. I am not sure if the packaging is recyclable or not, which is a downside to me.

          In each individual bag are lots of mini fingers. The benefits or being individually wrapped are great, they stay much fresher for longer and it is more convenient to take them for lunch or a picnic. If you have tried cadburys fingers already they are quite simply minier versions of them. If you havent you should because they taste gorgeous. Cadburys fingers are long thin bisuits coated in dairy milk chocolate, which of course is a winning combination. They have the perfect ration of biscuit to chocolate and taste great. The texture is hard and crumbly and it is easy to bite into them or suck the delicious chocolate off first.

          Overall I would recommend these fingers. They are a great product anyway, fantastic tasting, but now in these more convenient bite sized bags they are even more amazing! The only downside is if you are on a calorie counting diet, they are not good for that!!

            Cadbury's fingers in mini form

            I'm a fan of Cadbury's chocolate. I'm a fan of Cadbury's chocolate fingers. And I'm a fan of anything that comes in miniature so of course I had to try these when I saw them. I bought a multipack bag containing 6 individual 22g bags, for £1 from Iceland. According to the packaging info, each bag contains 8 mini bics (I had 9 in a couple of bags - bonus!) They're exactly the same as the normal size fingers, just smaller. Crunchy biscuits with a milk chocolate covering. This is the only version they do though. I much prefer the plain chocolate covered fingers so would like those in mini form but that's just my personal taste!

            Ingredients, from the back of the bags:

            Milk chocolate (48%) (Milk, sugar, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, vegetable fat, emulsifier (soya lecithin), flavourings) wheat flour, vegetable fat, sugar, partially inverted sugar syrup, salt, raising agents, (sodium bicarbonate, ammonium bicarbonate), flavouring. The pack also states "may contain traces of nut".

            Nutritional Info: (per 22g bag)

            Energy - 115 kcal
            Protein - 1.5g
            Carbohydrate 13.4 (of which sugars) - 7.7g
            Fat - 6.0g (of which saturates) 2.4
            Fibre - 0.4g
            Sodium - trace

            These are very very nice indeed. The only problem with them is, like all mini versions of nice foods, they're so small and few that you don't feel like you've eaten many so it's very easy to eat all these little bags in not very much time. (What's wrong with a few bics to accompany your cuppa?!)

            Very very moreish!

              A nice and new variation on a classic.

              I have been a fan of the product I am now going to review for many years, admittedly as a youngster these were more likely to be a Christmas treat. More recently these were purchased as a lunch box filler for my daughter, her being a fan now.

              The product I will now review is "Mini breaks - Cadburys fingers"

              The packaging is the same colour as the original, a nice soft and dark purple with the cadburys logo at the top of the bag, this review is about a multipack, thus the reason they are in a bag and not the usual box.
              The fingers are the focus of the picture on the front, with them being all lined up with the first couple of fingers just toppling over, dominoes style.
              Finally there is the statement at the top of the bag saying that held within this larger bag there are 6 smaller bags.

              Each bag within is about the same size as a bag of peanuts, the colour scheme is again duplicated from the outside wrapper.
              When opened you will see around 8 small chocolate fingers, these are around 10 -15cm in length.
              They are an exact carbon copy of the original, albeit larger fingers, why mess with perfection!

              The taste of course sublime, the initial hit of creamy milk chocolate backed up with the crunchy and wheat taste of the biscuit centre is a match made in heaven.
              With the original fingers I would suck all the chocolate off then eat the biscuit, but with these it is much easier to put the entire confection into your mouth and let it dissolve slowly on your tongue...mmmmm.

              These are of course a treat and should be eaten responsibly, ie occasionally, the nutritional information for this product is as follows -

              Per bag -

              115 kcal
              1.5g protein
              13.4g carbohydrate
              7.7g of which sugars
              6.0g fat
              2.4 of which saturates

              These do warn that they may contain traces of nuts, so beware!

              These are not ever going to be the healthiest product around, but as a little treat delicious. The fact that these fit perfectly in my daughters lunchbox is only an added bonus.

              These were purchased from my local Asda store, they retail around the £1.30 mark, but are on offer at the moment 2 bags for £2.00.
