      a great tea time snack

      Cadbury's Chocolate Fingers.........


      A Finger of Fudge is just enough....Oh hang on a minute that's not right. Well anyway Cadburys Chocolate Fingers are not really enough. I find myself eating a whole packet when I decide to buy them at the weekly shop and afterward still feel as though I could eat another packet or two.

      Now don't get me wrong I absolutely love these little chocoalte fingers and even though you get 150 grams in a box I just need more. For the price they are pretty reasonable and if you can get them on a special offer than that is even better. They usually come in at just under £1.50 pence but I think the last time I bought these they were on a half price offer in Tesco which made tham a rather good buy. (Even if the whole box was gone in a few minutes).

      You get a good amount of these in a box but as to exactly how many I have never had the chance to count them before I have eaten them all!!! They are basically around the size of my middle finger and are made from shortbread biscuit which is covered in a layer of thin chocolate on the outside.

      The biscuit in the centre is wonderfully rich, buttery and beautifully chrunchy. The outer layer of chocoalte is just would you would expect from Cadbury's in the way that it is also rich but with a smooth chocolate taste that literally makes you want to eat the whole box!

      All in all I would rate these fingers very highly. They are pretty cheap for the wonderful taste that you get when you eat them and they are a great little treat to eat almost anywhere. They are idea for parties, to take in to work or just wash down perfectly with a lovely cup of tea at elevenses. I am awarding these chocolate fingers a great score of 10/10 because they really do deserve it!

        A lot of nice little nibbles

        Sometimes you just want a small biscuit with your cuppa, you know just a little nibble to see you by. Just a small taster till teatime. So if you like chocolate and I just adore the stuff what sweet delight do you choose. Well at just 3-4 inches long and less than 1/2 an inch in diameter, in fact about a finger size Cadbury's Chocolate Fingers are a most excellent choice dude.

        They are readily available in most biscuit stockists and at about £1.09 - £1.20 for approx 25-30 little digits a pretty good buy. That makes each finger about 3p -4p
        The purple coloured packaging with the large word FINGERS written across it's front tells you you are picking up a Cadbury product. Strictly speaking it's more of a blueish purple but very pleasing to the eye. The box is sealed in a plastic bag to keep these little digit delights fresh.

        Each digit is made up quite simply of a fingers length of shortcake biscuit covered in Cadbury's delicious chocolate.
        There are many theories as to the correct way to eat these biscuits and I have most probably tried 99% of them, my favourite being the dunk and sook method. Take one finger and dunk for 1-2 seconds in your cuppa. remove and slowly suck the chocolate from the dunked portion of the biscuit. Bite of the now uncoated part and enjoy the shortcake secreted within. Or you could simply just forego the dunking and get stuck in. The chocolate is typical Cadbury quality being sweet but not too sweet. The shortcake is very crisp and slightly sweet which goes well with the chocolate. If I am not having a cuppa my preferred method is just bite and eat.

        The only drawback with these digit delights is that although we stared to have just one small biscuit with our cuppa a lot of restraint is required to stick to the original plan. These biscuit are so tasty that one can never be enough. I can easily consume a handful at a time, a handful of course being 5. OK it's probably nearer the two handful mark.
        The calories and that aren't too bad for a biscuit considering it does have a decent coating of chocolate. I generally have a packet now and then, keeping them in the cupboard is not a good idea since the temptation torments you.

        They are indeed a very good little biscuit, perhaps just a little expensive for what they are. I often find them in ASDA as a buy one get one free, but as I said it's very hard to keep that second packet in the cupboard and resist the temptation

          br>At one time or another Cadbury chocolate fingers have honoured almost everybody?s fridge or cupboard, they may not have stayed there for very long, with all the giving into temptation it would be very difficult holding back, Well for me anyway. I was used to the box of chocolate fingers, where they were, how I can say it, sporadically placed on that brown plastic tray. Never have I purchased a box where they were found to be nice and neat, but then that?s all part of the fun, and they are never in the box long enough to stay nice and neat anyway. With the original box of fingers I found that the tray of chocolate delights lasted longer than about five minutes maximum. If they were given to the kids alone they were lucky if they lasted two minutes. That?s why I was glad when I found out the new design for Cadbury fingers; I could not have come up with a better design if I tried. OooOooO NEW LOOK OooOooO This is where they have put the chocolate fingers into mini packets; they have thrown away the tray, killed the box and swapped it for a plastic bag filled with twelve mini packets of chocolate fingers. Each little packet contains three chocolate fingers, I know you might be thinking oh wow just three biscuits, but really that is just a nice amount, especially with a cup of tea or coffee. The design of the multi bag is that of the box, with the logo of the word fingers displayed across the front written with chocolate fingers, the Cadbury name is also displayed in the top left hand corner, with a smaller logo telling us that it contains twelve mini bags inside, each holding three delicious crisp biscuits covered with Cadbury chocolate. Now some of you think yes a plain biscuit covered in chocolate so what? well it?s not just that, they are extremely creamy, crunchy, suck able biscuits that give so much pleasure. OooOooO TASTE OooOooO When you open one of the mini bags you instantly smell th
          e Cadbury chocolate, the way it hits your sense of smell is so calming and has a warm sensation, causing you to want to eat and eat, more than just one packet. You can either bite your way through each one allowing yourself a quicker indulgence of the crisp biscuit and rolling the chocolate around in your mouth. Or you can suck the chocolate off the biscuit like I do allowing yourself two treats instead of one, from one chocolate finger, where you caress the chocolate with your tongue letting its individual tastes stay around longer, first the creamy milk chocolate with its milky morishness, and then when you have caressed all the chocolate from the biscuit you can either carry on sucking on the crunchy biscuit finger, or allow yourself to be naughty and suck on the biscuit allowing it to slowly but deliciously melt in your mouth. The product states that this product may contain nut traces, but state that it is suitable for vegetarians. We purchased this product from the local Kwik save supermarket at £1.00 which to me is an excellent price, as you have the twelve individual packets that are kept fresh due to their wrapping, and the whole family can appreciate it. You can purchase them from most shops or newsagents really. In each biscuit there is 0.4g?s of protein 1.4g?s of fat and the larger parts of the ingredients go between the chocolate which is 48% and the other 52% is between sugar, coco butter, coco mass vegetable fat amongst other things. You can also buy these min packets of chocolate fingers in another flavour; it is called caramel fingers, which is something to keep an eye out for in future reviews. OooOooO PROMISES PROMISES OooOooO Cadbury do promise that they can guarantee you will be completely satisfied with their products, and that if you?re not in any way, then you can write to them either from their web site or the address on most products, and this does in no way effect your statutory rights.
          I can honestly tell you that I was really happy with the whole idea of the new mini packets of chocolate fingers, they are excellent in the fact that you can pop a couple of packets into your bag or glove compartment in the car for those long journeys, you can also use them as the ideal treat in your kids lunch boxes, I know my grandsons Roy and Ray love to take them to school, another good use is at kids parties either in the goodie bags at the end of the day or just out on the table for them to eat at their leisure. I have also used these fingers as decoration on jellies, or children?s birthday cakes, the possibilities are endless. I know you can still buy these in ordinary packets, also if you are lucky there are presentation tins; I have an empty tin that is now used as a biscuit tin. OooOooO USEFUL IDEAS FOR THE FINGER SUPRISE OooOooO Make your jellies and leave to cool; when it is starting to set place chocolate fingers on the top and allow them to sink, if you have caught the jelly at the right time the fingers will stay afloat in the centre of the jelly, looking like those soap bars with the spider in the middle. When you have made a cake and you are putting cream or icing on the top, while cake is still warm, insert the chocolate fingers either in halves or whole, creating the hedgehog look, or add other sweets giving it a little more excitement for the birthday cake. Either buy a milk chocolate log or large white buttons, use the buttons as wheels on the side of the log and the chocolate fingers as the bars that go from wheel to wheel giving it the train wheels effect, you can then use them to create the chimney where the steam would come through. The list for ideas, no matter how simple is endless, and the adults never mind the kids love them. Whatever the choices may be, I think these are extremely handy, and when like me, you may be surrounded by a lot of grandchildren, there can be no figh
          ting over these, as the little packets are handed out and accepted with glee. I really recommend the mini chocolate finger treat for you all, enjoy. Thanks for the read, Pat

            A stick. Ha ha ha. Heh. Tee hee hee. But seriously, Milk Chocolate Mini Fingers are just like their larger cousin, the good old Cadburys Milk Chocolate Fingers. You know, the kind you stuck in cakes when you were younger and called it a hedgehog. Yes, THOSE! Now, the advantage of Milk Chocolate Mini Fingers over the big ones are there are twice as many ends, so that means MORE CHOCOLATE!!! Unfortunately, the tub is rounded so you cant fit many in there - it looks big inthe store but when you get it home you may find yourself disappointed with the vacous spaces round the edges where the fingers SHOULD be. Still, yummy.

              Cadbury's Chocolate (little) fingers have been on the market ever since 'Adam was a lad', as the expression goes. In common with several other chocolate favourites like 'Walnut Whip' and 'Wagon Wheel', they have shrunk. Now they have appeared as 'shrunken fingers' and been repackaged in a tub. (OK its a different product according to the manufacturer but if the 'other kind' shrinks any more, there will be no difference.) So, what are these biscuits anyway? They are (pinkie-sized) fingers of shortcake biscuit, dipped in Cadbury's milk chocolate. I believe that you can still get them dipped in white chocolate, but I haven't seen these for a while. The biscuit is crisp and melts in your mouth and the chocolate is up to the usual standard we would expect from a company like Rowntree Cadbury. Packaging? These little treats come in blue tubs which have the same colouring as the old-fashioned flat boxes. I have never actually counted the number of biscuits in the tub as I am usually too busy eating them as fast as I can to do that. There is a plastic tray which is divided into sections inside the box. I would estimate 30 biscuits but I am not sure. I refuse to admit to eating anymore than that anyway. Price? I paid 1.89p in my local Spar shop for one tub of around 30 biscuits. This did strike me as being rather expensive. Just how versatile are these biscuits? There are many ways of eating a chocolate finger and these range from crunching uncontrollably, dunking to sucking until all the chocolate has gone. I'm not telling which way I do it. These biccuits are extremely useful for making hedgehogs. Yes! I said 'hedgehogs'. Take a round sponge cake, cut across the diameter, put two pieces flat sides together. Cover with chocolate icing and insert 'prickles'. Chocolate fingers make a really effective hedgehog cake for a chil
              dren's party. Finish off with smartie for eyes and nose. You can also push these biscuits into ice cream instead of using flakes (cheaper), or wafers. They make a tasty treat once you have served everybody with there ice cream plus two chocolate fingers, you get to eat the rest yourself, in the kitchen. (Whoops! now everybody knows.) Pros and Cons. Excellent taste. Moreish. Can be used as more than just a biscuit. Kids like them so you have to share. Not enough in a box if you have a large family and quite expensive is you have to buy double packs. (Suggestion: but the for yourself and hide them in the cupboard...problem solved.) Fattening if you eat a whole packet too often but small enough to make a special treat for even the strictest dieter, once in a while. Must go. This opinion is really upsetting me. I don't have any of these in the house and I can't go and buy any as I'm on a diet. (Writing this must have been some form of compensation for my deprivation!)
