Iceland Rocky Road Fingers
Advantages: taste, value for money
Oh my goodness, where do I start when reviewing Iceland Rocky Road Fingers? Until yesterday I didnt even know they existed and was in Iceland stocking up on milk for the week when I set eyes on them. On the opposite asile to the milk Iceland have their biscuit/cakes selection and a box of these caught my eye.
Housed in a rectangular purple box the illustration on the front is of a plate of these goodies. Iceland descrbe them as "Chocolate finger biscuit topped with cherries, marshmallows and chocolate flavour topping" The picture on the box reminded me of nougart but rather than almond pieces you can see generous blobs of marshmallow and cherry all contained in a rich brown chocolate coating.
Taking the pastic tray out of the box "fingers" give the impression that they are going to be long and thin (I was thinking like Cadburys Fingers) when in reality they are about an inch wide and 3 inches long, so definitely fat fingers!
The taste is divine! the chunks of marshmallow and cherry protrude from the bar and as you bite into one the biscuit base crumbles and the marshmallows start to melt. Presumably like a rocky road its the texture that gives them the name as these are not smooth like other biscuits but bumpy and jagged (but not sharp) I dont know how I have never seen these before, but now that I have they will be making a regular trip home with me.
Im sure it wont come as a shock to discover that these arent exactly good for you, but for those brave enough to want to know the nutritional information 1 finger will provide:
15.2g of which sugar
0.1g fibre, sodium and salt.
The list of ingredients is extensive so wont repeat here, but allergy sufferers need to be aware that they do contain Wheat, Gluten, Milk, Soya, Sulphur Dioxide and may contain traces of nut. Reading through the ingredients Gelatine is included so wont be suitable for veggies either...
In conclusion then, these are an incredibly moreish chocloate treat that is different from other biscuits on the market place, the inclusion of marshmallow and cherry gives them an added dimension and they taste absolutely gorgeous. As with all chocolate and biscuits they are high in all the nasties you would expect them to have, but as with everything I wont feel guilty having these in moderation.
They get an outstanding 5/5 from me, if you have an Iceland near you I would definitely recommend you calling in even if its just to buy a box of these! Oh, and at the moment Iceland are generously giving you 7 for the price of 5 at the bargain price of £1.00 per box.
