Iceland Rocky Road Fingers
Advantages: 7 Thick Chocolatey Fingers for only £1
Disadvantages: Be quick to grab one before they all go ( or hide a box in a secret place!)
As I've mentioned before, I don't have a particular sweet tooth except when it comes to these Rocky Road fingers from Iceland. They are delicious and very moreish!
I first discovered these when I went to visit my Son in Marbella, when we went to their Iceland for some groceries and we grabbed these. I'm glad to say they sell them here as well.
These fingers come in a blue cardboard box with a picture showing you what to expect when you open the packet. The picture show's the Rocky Road fingers sitting nicely on a white plate. I've never had mine on a plate long enough to take a photo, in fact I can't remember them even getting to a plate, because once they are opened that's it they are gone so you have to get in quick!
There are usually only 5 in a box, but at the moment you get 2 extra free giving you a total of 7 for the price of £1, which is great value.
Now where to start, at the bottom I suppose. This is made from a chocolatey soft biscuit base, when I say soft I don't mean floppy soft it's a firm soft without being crunchy. Next it has been topped with chopped cherries and marshmallows, there's plenty of these. Then a thick chocolate has been poured over the top making them into nice thick fingers. From the top they look all bobbly as the cherrries and marshmallows try to poke through the chocolate, but the chocolate is thick enough to cover them.
These are very tasty indeed, even for the most savoury toothed person. I tried one just out of curiosity and was amazed how nice they tasted. I only ate the one, but I've noticed that when ever I buy these everyone else eats two. So normally it's a 2 box session we get through!
Now these weigh 210g and the sell by date is 25 Jan2010, not that would make any difference in my house they don't even last 24 hours in the cupboard.
Each finger contains;
~~~of which sugar 15.2~~~
~~~of which sats 3.5~~~
The biscuit base is 36%, the cherries are 5%, the marshmallows are 9% and the milk chocolate topping is 50%, so this gives you some indication of how each finger is made up.
These fingers do contain, Wheat, Gluten, Milk, Soya and Sulphur Dioxide. They might also contain traces of nuts.
These are a must for the Christmas cupboard, as they make a change from all the Christmas pud and rich Christmas cake. Iceland also do a Rocky Road Dessert which I always buy at Christmas for the non Chrstmas pud lovers, again this is really delicious as well.
5 stars for a real chocolate treat!!
Summary: Very moreish even if you haven't a sweet tooth!
