Fingers are a popular biscuit in the United Kingdom and Ireland which consists of a biscuit centre covered in chocolate. Fingers are produced by Burton's Biscuit Company in the United Kingdom, under licence from Cadbury UK, and are distributed in markets around the world, including North and South America, Europe and Asia. Since March 2013, Cadbury Fingers have also been sold in Australia with three different varieties available.

Fingers are sold in rectangular boxes contained in a compartmented plastic tray sealed in Cellophane. Double size boxes holding two trays are also available. Promotional boxes containing three trays are also available at times. Boxes contain an average of 24 fingers.

The modern style of Cadbury Fingers were launched in 1951. However, a similar biscuit was first introduced in 1897 as part of a Cadbury biscuit assortment. As of late 2012, the Cadbury Fingers brand is worth £36 million and is the number one brand in the special treats biscuit sector.[1]

Advertising[edit]

In the 1990s, adverts featured comedian Michael Barrymore singing songs about Cadbury Fingers and making note of the chocolate coating being Cadbury Dairy Milk. The packaging now displays the slogan 'one may lead to another'.

In October 2010, a new advertising campaign was launched and £4million was invested in the brand as a result.
