“ Brand: Cadbury / Type: Biscuits „
On Boxing Day after I had done an exhausting day of sales shopping, the only shop still open was Poundland so I went in search of Cadbury Chocolate Fingers to which I am almost addicted. Sadly there were none but I did find these Cadbury Festives.
They looked nice, I hadn't seen them before certainly and of course they were just £1 so why not.
These biscuits come in different versions, I know of the orange and the mint versions. Essentially it is biscuit with mint cream or orange cream and that is all coated in milk chocolate.
The packaging is a very traditional purple with a flash to make it look more festive though I can't say that if it weren't named Festives, I would know that it was supposed to be a specially designed seasonal product. I think they could have made more of an effort there. Inside is a double layer black plastic tray. There is 14 biscuits in all.
Inside each biscuit is individually foil wrapped. At least here they have tried. Each silvery foil wrapper is covered in snowflakes which is nice.
Inside the biscuits are about twice the size of a 50p. The first thing I thought when I bit it was, where is the flavouring, I could taste the biscuit easily and the familiar chocolate taste but not much sign of the mint. On looking at the inside of the biscuit I can see that they layer of flavouring is almost non-existent. Even just a bit more would have made the difference as the moment; you just get a slight twinge of flavour, nothing more.
I don't think I would buy these again, I'll just stick to the Fingers. Not that surprised that they only bring these out at Christmas.
