Click pic to view comments - Semi-international sighting: Cadbury Dark Fingers Semi-international sighting: Cadbury Dark Fingers
Posted: 15:10 Tue 18-05-2004. Location: Jack Fultons, Leeds. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Phil C" reports: My uncle bought these from Jack Fultons, so I have no idea how much they cost, sorry. They are not in the same style box as normal Cadbury's fingers, and when I looked on the back, it said they are made in the USA. It said "dark chocolate covered cookies" on the front, which first led to my USA-suspicions (they are BISCUIT, not cookie!) They taste very yummy, almost better than normal Fingers. The dark chocolate is very satisfying, more so than the normal Fingers.

...A tantalising glimpse there of Fingers developments yet to officially reach the UK (or might they be a long-forgotten British brand hoping to "start anew" in the colonies?). Still, that's nothing to what Cadbury have been getting up to in the (apparently camera-free) Antipodes, where Melbourne's "JazzJazz" has splashed out $3.88 (each!) on Cadbury Cookies 'n' Dream - "Cadbury has basically taken their ordinary Dream block and stuffed it full of little chocolate cookie pieces... as with all cookies 'n' cream products. The chocolate is fine (let's face it, Dream is delicious), but the cookies seem a little off. They could use a little more chocolate flavour and a touch more crispness... plus Cadbury Three Wishes Chocolate: In a similar vein to Cadbury's recent Triple Decker (layers of Dairy Milk, Dream and strawberry "confection"), Cadbury's new Three Wishes combines layers of Dairy Milk, Dream and Old Gold. The three flavours come together nicely and don't seem to clash. There are times when each flavour is tasted individually... very nice indeed.

Comment: Cadbury have brought out another new one in Australia: Old Gold Peppermint Chips (I think that's what it's called). It's similar to the classic Peppermint Crisp bar (I think Nestle make it), but the mint pieces are much smaller. The mint flavour actually does well cutting through the bitterness of the dark chocolate... but I'm not the biggest fan of Old Gold, so I'm not the best judge. Still, it's chocolate, it's Cadbury... delicious in its own right.

Comment: sorry to be so out of touch, but what does "old gold" chocolate taste like? tobacco?

Comment: I think it must be Bournville.

Comment: This is totally irrelevent, but I just bought a Mr Freeze ice pop and they're still only 5p! This means they haven't gone up in price in about 20 years! I shall live on them from now on.

Comment: Old Gold is the brand given to Cadbury's dark chocolate... probably the closest thing in Australia to the UK's Bournville.

Comment: I remember finding dark chocolate fingers in the UK a few years ago (don't think I've seen them again); they were in a conventional fingers box - but red and black as I remember rather than the traditional Cadbury's purple.

Comment: I'm pretty sure they've brought these about before, but I'll stand corrected. They *are* absolutely yummy, though.
