      Disadvantages

      Tasty, satisfying chocolate and caramel.

      I'm reviewing Cadbury's Dairy Milk Freddo Caramel which I bought in a 6 pack. I've been enjoying Freddo bars for many years although I was a bit surprised to learn that the original plain chocolate version of the bar was first launched way back in 1973 before being withdrawn from sale at the end of the decade. After this it wasn't until 1994 that Freddo was re-launched. I do eat the plain milk chocolate Freddo bars regularly as I have a terrible insatiable sweet tooth although I've only recently discovered these caramel filled chocolate bars. I bought a 6 pack because I thought I would enjoy these and I also thought they would be good to share in the household. I usually buy my Freddo bars in singles as they are a cheaper alternative to a chocolate snack. This product, though, comes in a pack of six bars. They are individually wrapped and then have an outer wrapper. The packaging is very much designed to appeal to kids and features the famous Freddo, a cartoon frog, in explorer gear studying nature. On the back of the back there is an "explore and discover" feature for children in which it is explained how to grow things from seed, how to make collage art from pieces of nature such as fallen leaves and how to do bark rubbings. I am really impressed by these segments on the wrapper as I think it's a great way to engage children, teach them something meaningful and engage their time with learning and fun activities. Also on the wrapper is a list of full ingredients. The milk chocolate used here is the standard Cadburys milk chocolate which I always find to be of a high quality. The bars contain 30% of runny caramel also. They are marked as being suitable for vegetarians. The net weight of the entire pack is 117 grams. There is a nutritional guide on the outer wrap as well as on each bar. Per bar there is 95 calories and 4.8 grams of fat. A Freddo bar is more like a mini chocolate bar but they are a perfect size if you like watching your figure and they are also a good size for children. One bar measures not quite 3 inches and is about 1 1/2 inches wide. They are shaped into the form of the cartoon style character who happens to be a loveable and happy frog. He reminds me a lot of Alberto the milkshake drinking frog from kids TV show 'Bod'. The bar is not flat and printed with the frog features but is actually curved and etched with the character. The shape makes the bar interesting to eat as there are parts where the chocolate is thinner and places where it is thicker, according to the Freddo design. The actual core space (where the caramel is) of the Freddo bar is quite small and the inside curves seem to touch each other, I think this is because there is a good sturdy shell of milk chocolate and the bar is compressed to achieve Freddo's features. However, I do feel like I get the best of both the chocolate and the caramel centre here. When I bite Freddo's head off the soft caramel flows and is smooth and creamy in my mouth. The combination of milk chocolate and caramel is delicious. I should point out that the caramel in this Freddo seems a lot more fluid and softer than that in a Cadbury's Caramel bar. Perhaps I'm wrong about this but the Freddo bar seems like it's a more runny, honey like caramel which I find is a beautiful, velvety texture. I find these Freddo Caramels very satisfying as a sweet treat in between meals or as a sugary pick me up as part of a packed lunch style meal. They are not as filling as some confectionary but that's what I like about them too. You never feel like you've overindulged after eating one of these! I would definitely recommend trying Freddo Caramel bars to anyone. You don't have to have kids to buy these. I think they are a great mini chocolate bar for adults to eat too! You can buy these at some supermarkets in the UK. Check out the Cadbury website for more information about the Freddo bar and for the rest of the Cadbury chocolate range: http://www.cadbury.co.uk/

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A very yummy chocolate bar, i would recommend to friends and family and obviously small children!

        The Freddo caramel dairy milk chocolate bar is an iconic children's chocolate, and is currently made by Cadbury. It was invented in 1930 by Harry Melbourne, an 18 year old moulder, employed by MacRobertson's Chocolates. ( Note: the above i got from wikipedia) Each chocolate is shaped like a frog, standing up and dressed. Though available as a solid milk chocolate freddo bar, certain versions of the product have a caramel centered flavouring. Now to start with the review :) I went down to my morrisons supermarket today and passed the sweets section... out of the courner of my eye i saw the display for the Freddo Caramel chocolate bar, i thought to myself that i hadnt had one of these in YEARS and with them only been 17p i picked up 6!! 17p for a small chocolate bar isnt too expensive but its well worth the 17p once youve tasted it! The packaging of the chocolate bar (2010-2011) is yellow and has a frog on the front (green) with the word 'Freddo' in bold red and 'caramel' in a purply blue colour! At the top of the packaging it says 'dairy milk' and of course there is also the price in bold writing! Also on the front it says that there is 95 calories which is 5.3% of a childs guideline daily amount (GDA). On the back it says the energy content (400KJ per bar), Kcal (95 kcal per bar), protein (1.1g per bar), carbohydrate (11.9g per bar) and fat ( 4.8g per bar-6.9% of your childs GDA). The ingredients:- Milk chocolate ( milk, sugar, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, vegetable fat, emulsifers (E442, E476), Flavourings), caramel (30%) (Glucose syrup, Glucose-fructose syrup, Invert sugar syrup, vegetable oil, dried whey, sugar, salt, Emulsifier (E471), Flavouring). CONTAINS: MILK. MAY CONTAIN: NUTS, WHEAT, SOYA. **The equivalent of 426ml of fresh liquid milk in every 227g of milk chocolate. MILK CHOCOLATE: MILK SOLIDS 20% MINIMUM, ACTUAL 23% CONTAINS VEGETABLE FATS IN ADDITION TO COCOA BUTTER. www.cadbury.co.uk Now For The Taste: The taste is mostly of the milk chocolate, but you can taste abit of the caramel too, it is a really nice taste tho, but the chocolate and the caramel together is quite sweet and if you eat more than 2 Freddo bars you may start to feel abit on the sick side as they are abit sickly. Overall the taste is really nice but you really need to try this chocolate bar for yourself :)

          Lovely treat for everyone

          Creamy soft caramel is incased in Cadbury's milk chocolate in this delightful sweet little treat. Considering the bright yellow packaging sporting a friendly looking green frog, I can only assume that these are aimed at children, but that doesn't mean adults can't enjoy them also. I do! When the wrapper is taken away, a dinky chocolate bar is revealed which is moulded into the shape of a frog like the one that can be seen on the packaging. The features of the frog are very detailed which almost makes me feel guilty when I bite his head off. There are 95 calories in each bar and 4.8g of fat. Considering the size of these, they are quite high in calorie content and fat so I wouldn't recommend enjoying these too often, but they do contain less than most other chocolate bars so these would be better to give to children. Even though they are small, they are quite satisfying, and after consumption, you do actually feel like you have eaten something so these are great for a sugar fix instead of option for a full size chocolate snack. The chocolate is quite thick in some places, certainly not a problem, and there is a generous amount of caramel which as I have already mentioned, is very soft and creamy. Overall, the balance between the two elements is just right. What I also like about these is the fact that they have the price printed on the packaging, making it impossible for those pesky, overpriced newsagents to mark them up. For 17p, these are great value and well worth the money considering the quality and how very tasty they are. **Also on Ciao under the same username**

            A great little chocolate and caramel fix.

            When I was younger I remember that I used to eat these little beauties on a regular basis. They used to cost 10p so they were a great bargain for a chocolate fix. I think these probably cost about 18-20p now, which sometimes makes me feel really old, as I look at them and say things like "when I was a kid these only cost 10p", I'm only 25 now so if they are still around when I'm in my mid forties they will probably cost about £1.00! Anyway, rant aside, I still love these little bars.They are little dairy milk offerings filled with the soft sticky caramel from a caramel bar, and they are shaped like frogs. (I'm not sure why cadbury picked frogs as the shape, anyone know?). The chocolate is actually quite thick on these, and they really are filled to the brim with caramel, it can go everywhere if you're not careful. As a snack or just a small chocolate fix they are really good, as you don't have to eat a whole caramel bar to get a fix of it, plus they must be less calories, than a whole chocolate bar. I think these would be great for kids too, as they are quite small, rather than giving them a whole chocolate bar. I really love Freddo's as they are a great quick chocolate fix, and I never feel too guilty about eating it, as it's only small, so I kid myself it can't be that bad for me!

              Love my frog.

              Freddo, the chocolate frog has been slipped a bit of caramel. Freddo is a brand of chocolate shaped like a little frog, they cost about 15-17p and are little tastes of heaven without the accompanying guilt trips about eating chocolate. They cost 95 calories per little chocolate frog and at only a few pence hardly break the bank. Why then play around with a winning product? They have taken our dear little frog and put some caramel in the middle, making the Frog cost a abit more at 17p and coming in 95 calories with a slightly eye-watering 4.5g of fat. Thats rather high for a chocolate bar which is at the most two inches high by one across and about a quarter of an inch in depth. The new caramel Froggo is therfore a mix of dairly milk chocolate, with a caramel runny centre. The hardness of the Froggo is now long gone and it takes less time to eat the little chocolate bar. Does the addition of caramel work? Generally I like caramel and chocolate, they work well because though they are about the same in terms of sweetness have different textures and give the taste buds something different to work on. In this case, caramel gives the little frog an additional sweetness and of course lessens the amount of chocolate per frog. In my opinion, its nice but I think I prefer the original with a solid piece of chocolate through out. However, as a little bit of chocolate with an additional blast of sweet caramel then it works fine. I like my little frog without caramel and I think in future will buying the orginal rather than the caramel version. Freddo is made by Cadbury's so you get the lovely pint and a half of dairy milk chocolate, will we lose some of the pint and a half when Kraft start making chocolate?

              Chocolate and Caramel Goodness!

              Freddo bars remind me of primary school where they used to sell them in the school canteen for 15p. I haven't seen them recently, but if i did i'd be buying one straight away. Freddo bars consist of thick Cadbury's chocolate in the shape of a frog with yummy caramel in the middle. They are the perfect size for a nibble as they are not as large as a normal chocolate bar, so you don't feel so guilty eating one! As they have cost 15p for years they have escaped the large price increases of other chocolate bars! you really can't go worng with this The product does look like a chocolate bar for kids due to the yellow packaging with a green frog on the front, but i think its the kind of product everyone will enjoy....especially big kids! :P Sometimes the original old school things like this are the best!

              The chocolate covered caramel treat we all need.

              Cadburys Freddo Caramel bars are little bars of dairy milk chocolate in the shape of a frog with a soft caramel centre. Each little bar of heaven retails for 15p each. If you buy in bulk though from a wholesalers you will be able to save yourself a pound or two. I don't know if any of you remember the old Taz bar bearing the image of the looney Tunes character upon it. Well Caramel Freddo is a re-branding of that product. I only mention it as whilst only 25 years old it's the Taz bars I remember from being a young child. The bars themselves are like a miniature bar of Cadburys caramel. It's the same sweet milky dairy milk chocolate and the same luscious sticky caramel in the centre. The chocolate isn't very thick, just thick enough to create a shell around the caramel and what I like about the caramel itself is that it isn't stuffed in there, there is a generous amount without it being too much, so when you bite the caramel stays inside the chocolate unlike other sweets in which I have found the caramel to spill out and all over your hands once you take a bite. When I need a chocolate fix I turn to these. Less than 100 calories per bar, which is way less than a normal chocolate bar, at 15p its about a third of the price of a normal chocolate bar and its chocked full of that rich, sweet Cadburys taste we all know and love. I can't recommend these bars high enough. Its yet another quality Cadburys product that will have you going back for more even if you know you shouldn't. If only I hadn't bought a box of 60, oh well best have another one.

              Yum, yum, yummy!

              Whilst shopping recently in Morrisons I was checking out the sweet section to see if there was anything I could buy my kids for a treat when I came across Cadbury's Freddo Frog, there was the Caramel version and the one that was just Cadbury's Chocolate. It has been years since I have even seen any Cadbury's Freddo's, they are one of those chocolates that remind you of your childhood, I used to love eating those as a child. In the end I bought 4 Cadbury's Caramel Freddo Frog's, one each for my boys and one for myself. I love caramel so I think that is why I chose the caramel version but I'm sure the plain Freddo Frog's are equally as nice. I am a total chocoholic and without a doubt think that Cadbury's is the best chocolate available. Therefore a Freddo is a perfect little treat made from my favourite chocolate. Cadbury's Caramel Freddo Frog comes in a yellow wrapper with a picture of Freddo Frog on the front. When you open the wrapper there is a chocolate Freddo Frog that is about 2 inches big. It costs 15p and it has this price on the wrapper as the recommended retail price, so they will probably cost 15p from where ever you buy them. The chocolate is quite thick and tastes really delicious, just as you would expect from a Cadbury's product. The caramel is really smooth, soft and runny in consistency. The combination of the chocolate and the caramel is just perfect. On the wrapper there is the nutriional information. Each bar contains: 95 calories 1.1g protein 11.8g carbohydrate 4.8g fat It even gives you the guideline daily allowance for children aged 5 to 10 years old. I think this is an indication that Fredddo's are aimed at children. They are perfect for small children because although I really enjoy them they are just too small, I could probably eat loads. All 3 of my boys really enjoyed their Freddo Frog Caramel, and after years without having one so did I. I think I will be buying them again soon and will definitely be trying the normal Fredddo's without the caramel. For just 15p you get a little treat of Cadbury's chocolate filled with loverly caramel. I think they're really delicious and it's a shame you can't get them in bigger versions.

                Delicious

                I have been a huge fan of the plain chocolate Freddo Frog for a couple of months. Although they are clearly aimed at children, I was just really chuffed to find a small solid chocolate treat that provided me with a proper chocolate hit without it being too sinful and heavy on calories. The only cost 15p and are the perfect size when you just need that hit of chocolate. The chocolate tastes creamy and delicious and is chunky enough to be really satisfying. I spotted the caramel Freddo Frog in a local newsagents, it has the same cheeky frog on the wrapper however the wrapper is a yellow colour opposed the puple of the plain Freddo. I was quite excited to try this one, and costing the same price as the plain Freddo, it is certainly worth giving them a try. I love caramel with chocolate, i think the two together provide a really luxurious treat. In this instance, the gorgeous chunky creamy cadbury's chocolate is complemented fantastically by the melt in the mouth caramel. I really enjoyed this and as it is only a smallish amount, it isn't sickly as some caramel bars can be. The caramel is a little messy however, and I do think that if this is bought for little ones they could end up in a right sticky mess. I thoroughly enjoyed this cheeky little treat and will be definately be buying this Freddo again.

                  You can't resist! ;-p

                  One of my friend's is allergic to chocolate and I feel really sorry for her as I love it as do millions of other people! In fact I adore chocolate but mainly milk confectionery not the plain stuff which I think is yukky :( My favourite all time chocolate is Cadbury's of course as its rich in flavour and it has a unique texture and smell that you would know even if you were blindfolded! The bar I am reviewing today is a small 20g bar of a Caramel Freddo. My bar comes in the famous purple wrapper and bright yellow which is eye-catching to appeal to kids as is the Freddo frog shape with his smiling face and an armful of melted caramel... Calories are 95 in this little bar which is why this sweetie is a treat, and the fat content is 4.8g plus the sugars are 11.8g. This treat costs 15p, and it says so on the wrapper which is good for kids with pocket money. The bar equals 5.3% of an adult's daily calories allowance and for allergists there is milk, and it may contain what, soya and nuts too... The wrapper is recyclable and the chocolate is suitable for vegetarians. Freddo's shape is really cool, he's about two inches long by one inch wide and has been moulded to look like the frog on the wrapper - very cute, lol! As for the taste well it's gorgeous! Really creamy and rich, the flavour is really sweet of course but not sickly like cheap chocolate. The texture is really smooth and the chocolate is so fresh it crumbles when you break a piece off which reminds me of their famous crumbly Flake :) The only thing I think that can be improved is the caramel; it is lovely it should be made a bit thicker in my opinion, it's far too runny although I suppose that's to personal taste... It had got to be five stars from me for the best chocolate in the world with a sweet sticky centre! ;-p

                    Smalle but delicious and cheap

                    After recently having had a Freddo I thought I'd hunt out the sister products which to my memory were called "Taz's" after the cartoon character Taz the Tasmanian devil, which featured the whirling dervish instead of the cute little frog as the products mascot. The main difference was that Taz's had a caramel filling, rather than solid and plain chocolate, and being a huge caramel fan, this appealed to me. However I was unable to stumbling across any Taz, I soon realised the product was re-branded "Freddo Caramel" and so I got one of them instead of spending my life searching for a product that no longer exists. Unlike it's sister product, this comes in a yellow colour, though maintains the same cheeky Freddo the frog character we either love, or think is a slight stoner and a bad influence for the kids. As is almost Cadbury's way, if a product contains caramel the wrapper will contain yellow (Dairy Milk Caramel and Chocolate Éclair are other examples) and is followed on here. Opening the packet reveals a chocolate bar (though I think there is different graphics on the bar), which in this case has the cheeky frog on it, looking like he's picking his nose, filthy frog needs to teach kids to be good. The bad is about 3 inches long an inch wide and quarter of an inch deep, so it's a relatively small bar, though it is only 15p (the same as the normal Freddo). The bar has a runny caramel (much runnier than I expected), and tastes just like the dairy milk caramel. The Cadbury's chocolate is, as always, delightful whilst the caramel central is sweet, runny and smooth, a perfect combination, that seemed to be forgotten when the company made Wispa Golds. Nutritional Information (per bar, which is about 20g) 95 Calories 1.1g Protein 11.8g Carbohydrates 4.8g Fat Though there appears to be not mention of saturates, it would be stupid to assume the figure would be high, due to how little total fat is contained. The product contains Milk and vegetable fats and may contain Nuts, Wheat and Soya. It also contains E442 which is an emulsifier to hold it all together. Overall the bar brings the taste and make up of the Cadbury's Caramel bar we know and love, to the cute Freddo branding that we can't but find cutely attractive. Not only have Cadbury's hit pay dirt here, but as the product is amongst the cheaper of the chocolate bars (with Fudges, smaller Milky Bars, plain Freddo's and Chomps) the product won't break the bank. So in these times of financial hardship what more can any one ask other than for high quality chocolate at a low low price? For those who enjoy caramel and want it cheaply this is ideal, for those with a bigger budget I will strongly advise Kit Kat Caramel Chunky as I personally think they are a very special bar. Summary: A cheap and cheerful chocolate bar, with a soft and luscious caramel texture targeted at children and parents to great success. A budget Dairy Milk Caramel by Cadbury's and the bar, formerly known as Taz.

                    grab a snack, not too bad for you, just a small choccy bar

                    Cadbury's Freddo bars ahve been around for a good few years now- I can remember buying these for 10p in around 1997. They were in the 10p snack section of newsagents, but they have incurred a 50% price hike in recent years and are now 15p. I liked them at 10p as I knew, often being really really short of cash, if i could scrape 10p together, I could get chocolate! Therefore they are important as is the under 20p confectionery market in general- to those of us who have been students and people who don't like large chocolate bars. What you get with a Caramel Freddo bar is a frog shaped 6cm by 3cm bar of chocolate. When you bite into this you find it is filled with runny caramel. It is the standard cadbury's milk chocolate (same taste as dairy milk) but you get caramel too. Each bar will provide 95 calories and 4.8g of fat- comparable to a special K cereal bar (though this only has 2g of fat) or a coco pops cereal bar (87 calories and 3g of fat). It is a nice buy if you just fancy a small bit of chocolate. As these can also be compared to the giant quality street sweets (though these are a little smaller) they give you a good bite of chocolate without the committment or fat/ calories of a mars bar for instance. I like these bars, but i disagree with the 15p price tag now. Although it is only 15p, I still feel sort of cheated about it. I'm sure it was a great business decision by Cadbury's to increase the price by 50% but to us, as the consumer, you don't get anything more for your extra 5p. ! These are best served from the fridge and not too great if they have been squashed or left out in any sort of hot weather.

                    a choc fix for 15p what a bargain

                    I used to eat carmel freddo all the time when I was younger and whilst in costcutter on friday I saw they were on offer so decided to buy them and they are still as delicious as I remembered. They are normally priced at an amazingly cheap price of 15p each, but the costcutter offer is 4 for 50p so it saves you 10p, well it may nor be a huge saving but they are well worth even the full price in my opinion. The wrapper is bright with yellow and purple colours and a picture o freddo the frog on the front, it also has the 15p price tag at thebottom of the wrapper. Once opened you are greeted with a frog shaped chocolate and when you bite into it the lovely runny caramel oozes out, I like the fact that the caramel stays soft even when chilled in the fridge, not like some chocolates you buy. The caramel has a lovely rich and sticky taste and as the chocolate is made by cadburys you get the lovely quality and richness that cadbury gives. I think these are a real bargain at 15p and you get a good amount for the price and they are great if you are trying to cut down on the amount of chocolate you eat, as these just give you a sweet chocolate fix that you sometimes need...or maybe that is just me!!! One of these bars will set you back 95 calories which is pretty good for chocolate. I would highly recommend these and if you do not like caramel then they also make a chocolate freddo that is very good too and still the bargin price of 15p.

                      Revert back to being a child for a chocolate treat and snaffle up a freddo caramel frog

                      Cadbury's Caramel Freddo Frog **Where did taz go** You can get freddo frog original plain milk chocolate or this lovely caramel freddo frog version and the plain version is in a purple wrapper whilst the caramel one is in a yellow wrapper. I have adored these for years and buy them for my little nieces and nephews as well as selfishly for myself. It is made by Cadburys the delightful Willy Wonka of the chocolate makers. I am convinced these used to be called taz in my youth but maybe I am imagining it. There are two reasons why I love freddo caramel frogs: less calories but still fill the chocolate addiction hole and secondly they are 15pence and I am beginning to think paying 60pence for a dairy milk caramel is a bit steep when I can get 4 of these for that! I tend to buy these, the purple ones and Cadburys fudges and curly wurlys in a bundle to share between me and the kids- one for them two for me-isn't it great to share! **The Appeal** Freddo frog is a tiny chocolate snack bar shaped like a frog. The caramel version has a chocolate outing mould with soft delicious velvety caramel inside. The wrapper/packaging stands out to attract children and is bright yellow with a frog with a green head and a white top and blue pants. Cadbury is on the top of the wrapper and the 15pence price tag is clear to see. On the other side is the bar code and hidden between back and side is the calorie content. **The Guilt factor** There is 100calories per freddo caramel which is a nice round number! It has 1.1g protein, 12.1g carbohydrates of which 10.6g are of sugars. It has 5.0g of fat , 0.0g sodium, o.1g fibre and Cadburys warn only to be enjoyed as part of a healthy active lifestyle. I am active as I walk into the shop to purchase this little beauty and chomp it to pieces in 2 bites! But seriously at 100 calories it isn't a lot and could be worked off easy enough and great for a snack rather than eating a full size bar or a greedy big value chocolate bar! **Yummy** So you get a freddy shaped frog perhaps 5cm long and under 1cm thick and under 3cm width. One could feel guilty devouring a freddy shaped chocolate but I never do. I bite the head off first and immediately I can tell it is Cadburys. It tastes yummy and smooth and doesn't stick to the back of your throat or teeth but melts away smoothly. There is not too much caramel in it and it reminds me of the Christmas tree chocolate decorations Cadburys do. It does however taste moresish and you could easily want another 2. In my head I have to think that is 100 calories used up and what I have to do to work off my little froggy treat. Only problem is one bite the head is gone and second bite the body goes so before you know it there is no evidence left of this little chocolate creature. Maybe they should do a bigger version! **Opinion** It is Cadburys at its simplest form and a winner for me as it is cheap, cheerful, fun and yummy. It suits all ages and especially good for the kids. Adults can pretend they are buying them for their kids. I rate it 5 out of 5 for taste and value for money and recommend you give it a whirl as you will be taken back to your youth and get your chocolate cravings sorted for less calories.

                        Forget frogs legs, get your frog fix from a Freddo instead!

                        I remember Freddo's, and the special caramel version, fondly from my childhood. Although Freddo's have still been available for the last few years in some shops, I hadn't seen the caramel ones for years! I came across some last weekend in Morissons and picked up one to relive the good old days! I know I'm sad, but people went crazy when Wispa was brought back out so I'm not alone in enjoying the nostalgia of childhood chocolate! That said, I may have just been blind for the last few years and not realised that caramel Freddo's have been available, in which case I apologise. Freddo is a small frog-shaped shaped chocolate, produced by Cadbury's. I've only just found out that this product was first created in 1930, though came under the Cadbury umbrella in 1967 to become Australia's most loved choccy bar. The caramel version was later released, with a yellow wrapper rather than the bluey/purple one used for the original Freddo. I came across this in Morissons, but I'm sure they'll probably available in other stores, although they don't appear that easy to come across. I've only ever seen them sold as singles in the one standard size, which is a small 20g bar. They retail at 15p, as stated on the wrapper, though some cheeky shops (like One-stop) often charge over the price on the wrapper. Caramel Freddo's used to be called Taz bars, which is how I best remember them with the Loony Toons character on the front, though they later returned to Freddo bars. On opening the plastic wrapper, you can smell the lovely Cadbury chocolate. If you have the willpower to wait a few seconds before eating it, you'll notice it's shaped like Freddo the frog with indented lines representing his features. The product is simply a smaller, and cuter, version of a Cadbury's Caramel bar. So if you like those, you'll like this. The outer chocolate is smooth and of a decent thickness, and the inside is filled with thick & creamy caramel. Each 20g Caramel Freddo contains 100 calories and 5g fat, and although it's relatively small compared to larger chocolate bars, it's a good size for a snack or treat (which I think is good as I find a whole Cadbury Caramel bar can be a bit too much all at once sometimes). That said, I have a sweet tooth when it comes to chocolate and these are quite hard to resist. Overall, at 15p, these make for a perfect cheap treat. Definitely recommend if you want some sweet, rich and melt-in-your mouth chocolately goodness. Or, if like me, you want to get back a bit of your inner child! :o)
