Cadbury Fudge

“A Cadbury’s Fudge is just enough to give your kids a treat.
A finger of Fudge is just enough until it’s time to eat.
It’s full of Cadbury goodness
But there is more I need.

I am 32 years old, and I still can’t stop myself humming that little ditty every time I unwrap a Cadbury’s Fudge. That either says something about how effective the advertising campaign was, or something about my childishness, either way I can’t help but feel a small amount of excitement at unwrapping the bar.

How best to describe the humble Cadbury’s Fudge – the perennial kid favourite? The fudge bar itself is a D-shaped finger (11cm long and about 1.5cm at its widest point) coated in a thin layer of Cadbury’s chocolate – smooth on the top, and a sort of rough regular texture on the bottom which looks like it sat on mesh while the chocolate set.

On biting into the bar, the overwhelming flavour is that of the buttery sweetness of the fudge – not as sophisticated or creamy as true fresh fudge, of course, but still has a satisfying and moreish quality. The chocolate to fudge ratio is a little on the mean side, but enough to complement the fudge nicely.

At the end of the finger (which sadly, you reach all too soon) you’re left feeling “mmm, I could eat another one of those”. Maybe a Cadbury’s Fudge is enough of a treat for a child, but for the adult chocaholics among us, I’d thoroughly recommend buying them in a multipack of 6…

    “They’re full of Cadbury goodness,
    but very small and neat.”

    I believe you’ve created your own lyrics as a result of your insane cravings for more.

    I had a Fudge this arvo. Bliey, they have become thin!

  6. The fudge advert was well sinister. The one with the musical jingle on used to, maybe still does, freak me out because it sent people mental.

    A finger of Fudge is just enough to send to round the bend.
