Cadbury’s chocolate fingers

I’m taking a break from Brigid this week and having some fun. With Cadbury’s chocolate fingers!

(Ye can blame Jenna for this one!!) Cadbury’s chocolate fingers are just a wonderful blend of crispy biscuits covered in milk chocolate. Proper Cadbury’s milk chocolate now, none of that Hershey’s stuff… They come in a variety of flavours, and frankly, are highly underrated as a biscuit, as a chocolate bar and as a general pick=me-up.

Why am I writing about biscuits?

Well, last week was fairly tough in work. Like 60+hour week tough, even though I left at 2pm on Friday… I was battling my entire team on a safety issue and got them to budge a little bit, but not all the way. On the plus side, everyone survived intact (not always a given in my line of work). On the down side, I didn’t have any Cadbury’s chocolate fingers to help me through.

(No, this isn’t a sponsored post, I just feel like being a bit silly!)

My Brigid practice dropped to almost nothing, other than an occasional “give me strength”, “give me patience”, “please just help me survive this conversation without getting fired”… We all have weeks like this. It’s not linked to being on the anvil (have a look here or here), it was just one of those weeks. Human caused as opposed to divinely caused. And of course, she did offer me strength and help and all the rest of it.

But, I need a bit of a break. So, I’m going to talk through the main flavours of chocolate fingers for a bit of fun, and frankly, educational purposes. Trust me, you need to know about these biccies.

And no – these are not what the US describes as biscuits. They are not cookies either. Not what I would call a cookie anyway. What would ye call this in the US??

These were the first, and are still the basic form of the cadbury chocolate finger. Crispy biscuit covered in milk chocolate. The boxes usually come in just over 100g sizes, although there is a “family” sized one in roughly 200g I think. Haven’t seen that one in a while though. There’s also a massive box of these that come out for Christmas. The normal box I can get for about €1.50 in Tesco’s. None of these boxes ever survive longer than a few days in the house. Seriously. In fact, if the box gets opened and gets put away with any left in said box – something’s gone wrong!

Now, I love white chocolate, but the white version of the cadbury chocolate fingers aren’t my favourite. (That will come later!) In saying that, I still enjoy these very much, they’re just a bit blander tasting in comparison with some of the flavours to come… Again though – once that box gets opened, it’s getting finished. These are not biscuits that are eaten one at a time and then left along.

These are for single sittings only, in my opinion.

Mint chocolate fingers

Gonna be honest – when these came out, I thought they were going to be my favourite ever. Now, that box has a “new” label in the top right hand corner, but these have been around for a while. That doesn’t mean they’re not good, cos they really, really are… and again, one sitting and the box is gone. (Who am I kidding, it’s a matter of minutes and the box disappears. The minty taste here isn’t overwhelming, it’s just right. And the crunchy biscuit just sets it off nicely.

Orange chocolate fingers

Yup, these turned out to be my surprise favourite. Now, maybe it shouldn’t be a massive surprise (Terry’s chocolate orange deserves all the accolades, in my opinion!) but it was. I didn’t expect these to be my favourite chocolate fingers, but there we go.

I mean, orange and chocolate have been well established as partners at this point right? And really, adding in a crispy biccie just adds to the experience. So these are the ultimate one for me. Now, I know these cost a lot more than €1.50 in the US, but have a look out for them!! Seriously, these are wonderful biscuits.

And yes, normal service will be restored at the weekend (probably) when I might be writing about Brigid and sex. And why I want to write about it as well!!
