Cadbury Extra Crunchy Chocolate Fingers

Advantages: scrummy crunchy taste and cool packaging
Disadvantages: not so sure about the calorie count
Everyone, but anyone has heard of Cadbury’s fingers, unless you’ve been somewhere remote for the last few years. But Cadbury’s have recently come up with many different ranges of the fingers though. From caramel, to crunchy to even the latest, limited edition white chocolate fingers. All of these are yummy, and my favourite has to be the caramel edition, but I thought that seeing as it was coming up to Christmas, that I might as well review these scrummy chocolate- biscuit treats.
The Cadbury’s history
Fingers have been made since 1897! That’s almost 109 years ago now. Can you imagine Queen Victoria, just a few years from her deathbed eating the normal scrummy fingers; it’s pretty amazing when you think about it. These extra crunchy fingers were launched in 1999; the mini fingers launched in April 2001 caramel fingers launched in September 2001. The packaging of these fingers hasn’t been redesigned since September 2001 either.
These chocolate biscuits come in a purple rectangular box and has the words fingers and crunchy on top of the front of the box. The packaging on the front cover has a golden whoosh colour underneath the fingers logo. On the back is all the nutritional information, the contact addresses and the summary of what Cadbury’s say these chocolate biscuit’s are. On the side is the cell by date which as I can see, is in date for another year or so, so if necessary, I could have brought more of these and just stored them for a lot longer….oh well.
Opening the actual cardboard box, I see a thin plastic bag around a plastic tray full of these yummy fingers. The plastic tray is black, and the bag as well as the tray seems to keep these fingers fresh, which makes me happy to eat them without a care in the world. There are around thirty or forty fingers in this box.
The taste test
Now this is my favourite part of being able to review food products. The tasting test.
Opening up the finger packaging, I am overwhelmed with a chocolate smell. It smells sweet and makes me want to eat them all up in one go. Each finger is around 2 and a half inches in length. Taking my first bite into the chocolate finger, I see a crunchy stick coated in a milk chocolate covering. Comparing it to normal original fingers, it’s certainly crunchier, and yummier, and it tastes really good (excuse me while I tuck into my second and third ones). I am actually beginning to wonder whether or not to make these fingers crunchier, whether or not they add in the base of the crunchy chocolate bars; you know the honeycomb middle, because these fingers remind me of the crunchy chocolate bars. The chocolate is easy to tell that it’s the Cadbury’s milk chocolate, and if any of you like the Cadbury’s dairy milk, or the dairy milk with biscuit bars, or Cadbury’s crunchie, then you are sure to like this range of fingers.
My overall conclusion
Overall, these fingers are yummy, and I think that I might just have to go out and buy another pack of them to satisfy my hunger and stomach. I really like these fingers and I think that in future, I will be adding these to my shopping list each week, or at least one box of the fingers range. I think it’s great that they also have a long cell by date, so when they are on offer down at the supermarket, I can buy more for my money and keep them for longer which is great. Overall, I give these a ten out of ten for yummyness, the packaging is funky and keeps the fingers fresh, and they aren’t all that expensive. I recommend these highly.
SUITABLE FOR VEGATARIANS
MAY CONTAIN TRACES OF NUTS
Available: all good supermarkets and food stores at around the price of £1-£2. I like the fact that my local Tesco has been doing a BOGOF offer recently, so for a box 150g, instead of getting one box for £1.07, I get two boxes.
