Today's Review: Cadbury Dream Fingers

Cadbury Fingers are a British institution. If you tell an Englishman that you're planning on eating some Fingers, they'll know exactly what you're talking about. Other people would think you mad. Cadbury chocolate coated biscuit, it's a formula that works, and has been much loved for many years, and the brand is worth £36m as of last year. That's a fact, because it's on Wikipedia.

But there's always room for change, and I'm always open to different varieties of favourite snacks, so these Fingers coated in Cadbury Dream chocolate seemed right up my street. I'm sure I've had them before, but I haven't seen them around in a while, nor have I reviewed them, so that's why this is happening. If you didn't know, Dream is the brand name of Cadbury's white chocolate, which sounds much more appealing than their dark Bournville. 

So basically, these are white chocolate coated fingers. Now, I like white chocolate, it's a welcome change to the boring old milk sometimes, but in the case of Cadbury it's hard to grow tired of Dairy Milk. These Fingers are nice, yes, the white chocolate is quite plentiful and creamy, and the biscuit is as good as ever. But the chocolate does get a bit sickly after a while. I still managed to eat the whole box (shut up, it's Christmas), but if I were given the option of these or the original I'd go with the latter.

Dream Fingers. A cool name for a band, an awkward one for a porn star, and quite a nice chocolate biscuit.

My rating: 4/5
