It's funny, I never think about the expression "butterfingers" when I'm eating a Butterfinger. For those who are out of the 1950s loop, it has something to do with not being able to hang onto something. I wonder if there's any connection?

Wow, these sticks are full of crunchiness. I'm sure under normal circumstances that last sentence would be a grammatical nightmare, but in this case it applies. I was wondering how the center bit of a Butterfinger would work with a cookie coating. The taste is not too bad, although the cookie flavour overpowers the toffee center a little. I have to say this treat does have a unique flavour, and does taste different from the bar, and that's a good thing.

I'd probably like these more with peanut butter inside, or something with a bit more of a powerful flavour, but this isn't bad. If you're a big Butterfinger fan, you might like the variety this treat offers.
