What is the shelf life of the UK Cadbury dark chocolate fingers when they are not opened?
If not those, what about the milk chocolate ones?

Does anyone have experience with the ones sold in the United States?

They are my daughter's favorite.

According to this site, the shelf life for both dark and milk chocolate ones is 390 days. http://www.foodservicedirect.com/product.cfm/p/1927098/Finger-Cookies.htm

Thank you.

How old is the daughter? Does she like the dark? I am surprised a younger person would like dark chocolate.

I actually e-mailed the company. They never returned my e-mail.

There is no best buy date on the packaging. I wonder how they came up with 390 days.

Sorry, I meant the milk chocolate ones are my daughter's favorite.
She's sixteen and no she doesn't like dark chocolate.

I buy them whenever I go to UK but I've never seen the dark chocolate ones.
But I've seen them in the grocery store in the US.
I wonder if they are made in US or imported from UK.

The ones I just got from UK this month have best before date and it is Aug 2013.
Did you e-mail Cadbury or Burton's? I think Burton's is the one who actually makes the product. Maybe you can try e-mailing them?

They are the UK version. I e-mailed Burtons.

Based on your information, I can assume they will last a few months at least.
