It's funny, I never think about the expression "butterfingers" when I'm eating a Butterfinger product. 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? Personally, I’ve never dropped a Butterfinger’s product, so it’s never seemed particularly relevant to the bar. There’s also nothing particularly “butter” like about the bar either. It’s a bit of a mystery.
Wow, these sticks are full of crunchiness (maybe they should call it Crunchyfingers). 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 bland Butterfingers 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. I’m not a huge fan of Butterfingers so I found that it lacked a really strong flavour.
