“ Brand: Cadbury's „
I bought a six pack of these from Tesco's the other day for 75p, meaning each bar costs less than 13p each. They are very small and probably a third of the size of a regular sized chocolate bar, but still a bargain!
*Where does Freddo come from*
Freddo's are made by Cadbury and originate from Australia, although are widely available in the UK and other countries. I always assumed that Freddo was a 1980's invention as I remember him from my childhood, however his conception dates back to the 1930's making Freddo MUCH older than I thought!
*What's in Freddo*
Freddos are made of milk, sugar, cocoa butter, vegetable fat and flavourings (this product has two different e numbers too which should be noted). They may contain nuts.
*What does Freddo taste like?*
Freddo doesn't taste that dissimilar to an ordinary Cadbury's dairy milk bar and has a thick and rick creamy texture. There is nothing wildly exciting about this bar, although I do think it is perfect for a lunchbox treat (for children and adults) as it takes the edge off that chocolate craving. It may fill up a little child but definitely wouldn't fill up an adult though!
You can also buy a caramel version of these Freddo's which are a bit more exciting. Back in Oz there are apparently even more versions like white chocolate and a crunchie version!
The product is aimed at children but good for adults who want to aim portion control. There are 95 calories in each of these small bars - this is 5.3% of an adults guideline daily amount.
*Other useful things about Freddie*
They are suitable for veggies (no meat here)! There is a long best before end date on these - the ones I bought have a bbe of around a year.
3/5 dooyoo stars - good for kids and a quick nostalgic chocolate fix and a good price - but nothing more exciting than this!
Cadbury's Freddo's cost 20p each or can be bought in a pack of six for 75p. They come in a purple packet with a picture of a frog on and the chocolate bar name across the front. They are about half the size of the average chocolate bar and made up of Cadbury's dairy milk chocolate, moulded into a frog shape.
I purchase these in a multipack every so often to keep in the cupboard as treats for my daughter. They are the perfect size for her little two year old self and I am satisfied that the smaller size means they are not so bad for her as the occasional treat. These are a simple chocolate bar being just plain milk chocolate but we all really enjoy them. I like to have mine with a cup of tea sometimes instead of a biscuit and the little size means I don't feel too guilty afterwards! The frog shape adds extra enjoyment for my little girl as she points out that it is a frog about ten times before she eats into it! Although I do primarily buy these for my daughter, me and my husband also really enjoy them so I'd recommend to anyone really.
A nice Cadbury's treat in the perfect snack size. 5 stars
A lot of people will have at least seen this product in their local paper shop or at a sports club as a child although not all of them will have had the pleasure to actually taste this delicious snack, freddo has been around for a long time but in my opinion the brand still stands the test of time as I will go on to verfiy.
Depending what part of the world you are from will determine exactly how the packing looks, in the uk the freddo brand is the instantly recognisible purple that tells you its a cadburies product and in the uk version freddo frog holds the writting "freddo" which is printed in red, in his two hands
Freddo's have always been well known for their affordability for school children and for people who have had a busy finaicial period such as over christmas and birthdays, for a long time freddo seemed immune to inflation with the price stuck at 10 p for a number of years, though a few years back now the price rose to 15p and recently has just rose again to 20p, which seems like a large increase for the same product however it is still affordable for school children and those who want decent quality chocolater without speninding a fortune on some belgian sickly stuff. With the price of a 45 g bar of cadburys dairy milk costing 60 pence, the 18 g freddo represents a possible 36g for 40p or 54g for 60 pence meaning your money goes further as the profit margin for this product is still less than larger bar products (excluding those large bars that are multi use intended I think they might be called "family" bars in days gone by)
Well a single freddo is a lot less fatning than a single galaxy bar because it is smaller and when you have a choclate craving very often that one bar will fill you up and delight you with out much effect on your waistline, as it sort of opperates on the "minimum response to elict change" principle whereas buying a bigger bar preety much ensures you are going to possibly eat moe than you strictly need.
However for times when you are really peckish you may want to eat two of them before stopping, again as this is less chocolate than a single regular bar its still not so bad because it has overshot your minimum cravings by less, if at all.
I do think that both psychology and physically eating two freddos is going to be enough because it gives your brain time to register your full and that your craving for sugar has been statisfied then their is the guilt factor as eating two freddos makes you think "I'm not going to be a greedy guts and eat a third one" inspite of a third bar being not much more than a regular bar you are psychologically disuaded from eating that last bar.
Finally there is the cost aspect, stopping at two bars saves you 20p a day over other stacks and over a year in these finacial times this saving can be put towards going to the gym instead of fattening your self with chocolate! As for the actuall nutritional value of freddo its much similar per gram to any other cadburys product with a single bar providing 1.4g of protein (good), 10g carbs (ok) 5.4 g of fat (about typical) one small negative for the product is it does not tell you how much saturated fat is in the product (as to a certain extent one can overdose on non saturated fat and not get fat but even if one eats less fat than the rda but has a high proportion of saturated fat in their diet they can be at risk of health compllications)
Its all in the eye of the beholder but in my eyes its got a really smooth and milky taste which is not far behind galaxy for texture and has quite a sweet taste too, a little sweeter than cardburys dairy milk but is not so sweet as to be sickly and for the price is actually tastier than cardburys dairy milk but isn't up to the standard of the king of chocolate which is galaxy in my opinion. It is very much a milk chocolate with the taste being nothing like dark chocolates rich and smokey taste instead its nice,sweet and very milky and is suitable for those of us who prefer tasty not prentious chocolate.
Freddo's have got to be one of my favourite chocolate bars due to their distinctive taste and small price tag. However it has come to my attention that the good ol' freddo bar is now at an outrageous 20p! I love freddo bars and they really are the iconic chocolate bar of any childhood.
The packaging of the freddo bar is slightly different than the one shown above as they now come in a purple packet, from where i come from anyway! This works well with the colours of Cadbury's due to purple being the colour associated with the company, and this also draws the attention of the customer as purple is also a very distinctive colour against many other chocolate bars.
The chocolate itself is very good for giving to younger and smaller children for a little snack or treat as they are not too big and will not make your child unhealthy. (Unless they eat a whole box of 60!)
These really are an iconic chocolate bar to any adult in their childhood, however i think it would be time for the classic Freddo to revert back to its original size and tasty price of 10p!
The Cadbury freddo frog is a very popular children's (and adults) sweet. At a small size, they are the perfect treat and chocolate hit that you could need.
I love the fact that the chocolate is in the shape of a frog and the frog looks so happy. It is almost guaranteed to cheer you up if you are feeling down. It is made out of pure Cadbury milk chocolate so taste like a bar of dairy milk, just smaller and frog shaped.
A Freddo is only 95 calories so can be used as an afternoon treat for someone who is trying to eat healthily and it is also a good choice to give to children as it isn't too big.
They cost 20p pre freddo now which is a lot of money compared to what they used to cost. the rice keeps going up and up. I remember that just a little while ago, they were 15p each and then went up to 17p but very quickly after that rise, they now seem to be 20p each. The only good thing is that the price is written on the packet so it cannot be changed by individual shops, you pay the same everywhere.
The Cadbury freddo frog milk chocolate bars are great for a cheap and not too naughty chocolate bar. They are obviously designed for children being shaped into a cute fog character but I often buy them as they provide a chocolate fix but are small enough not to be too fattening.
The price of each freddo frog is 20p and the good news is that Cadbury prints this on the front of the bars wrapper so shops cannot charge any more than this.
The wrapper is the traditional Cadbury purple colour with the Cadbury and dairy milk logo's on with a picture of freddo the frog on the front. Also on the front is some basis nutritional information and as I mentioned previously the price. On the back of the wrapper you can find more detailed nutritional information and ingredients listings.
Each fog contains just 95 Calories and 5.4g of fat, which means that you get a nice amount of chocolate to satisfy your cravings but do not feel too guilty afterwards.
The moulded frog shaped chocolate is just simple of piece of Cadbury dairy milk, it has the same creamy distinctive taste and is just as enjoyable. I think the freddo bar is suitable for children and adults alike and would recommend it for either as a fun quirky treat.
Cadbury's Freddo Frog is a chocolate I remember from when I was a kid (only cost 10p in those days too).
Cadbury's Freddo Frog is basically a piece of Cadbury's milk chocolate which has been shaped and printed to look just like Freddo the Frog that is printed on the packaging. It's as simple as that. Freddo comes in a purple wrapper that has a picture of Freddo wearing a yellow t-shirt on the front. On the back, is a bit of nutrional information. Freddo "bars" are only small chocolates, about two bites worth for an adult, but great sized for children, or for those on a diet needing a bit of a chocolate fix.
These bars are great, smooth milk chocolate with a nice bite to them. They taste just like usual Cadbury Dairy Milk bars, but in a smaller version, which as I said before is great for kids or for those who only want a smaller chocolate bar.
These now cost 15p, and can be found in most newsagents and some supermarkets. There is also the caramel version, which is exactly the same, but has a small amount of caramel in the middle.
==Cadbury's Freddo Frog==
Freddo the Frog has been around for a good number of years now and is something that I might treat Jack to if he has been a good boy. I used to eat these bars of chocolate when I was younger and I felt the main draw when I got old enough to have my own money was the fact that they were a very affordable 10 pence per bar! Bargain.
Nowadays however Freddo doesn't seem as good value as he once was costing 17 pence per bar. The bar itself is fairly small although no where on the small wrapper can I see that they have said exactly how much the Frog weights in at.
Freddo Frog is basically a pure milk chocolate bar which is in the shape of a tall frog. It has the face of Freddo etched into the surface of the chocolate which is I guess supposed to make it slightly more fun and appeal to children far more.
The wrapping of the Freddo frog is very appealing for children especially as there is a cartoon picture of Freddo on the front. He has a bright green face and is wearing some sort of jogging suit whilst holding his name is large red lettering. The rest of the wrapper is now coloured the classic Cadbury purple colour unlike the above shown picture.
The small wrapper has really only limited information. It states that the chocolate bar is suitable for vegetarians and that per bar there are 95 calories and 5.4 grams of fat. It is possible that the bar contains nuts, soya and wheat so allergy sufferers beware. Apart from that and a small bit about the ingredients there is nothing more that the wrapper has to say. But I feel this is enough!
The chocolate bar is made by Cadbury's so the taste is really what you would expect when buying a milk chocolate bar from this company. It has a smooth and creamy taste which is rich and sweet and very moriesh. Unfortunately I had bought this one for Jack and was only able to have a small bite of it before he gobbled down the lot at supersonic speed. Both Jack and I do like these little frogs as a treat from time to time.
The smell that comes from the bar is again very sweet and rich. You can tell just from the aroma that is a solid chocolate bar and the fragrance makes you just want to pop the entire frog in your mouth in one go - (this is possible!) The smell and the taste are really very nice and because the bar is on the small size I would say it certainly leaves you wanting more!
The taste is really very delicious and compared to most chocolate bars this really is a good price and more than enough chocolate for little chops to eat (and especially for those with bigger chops like myself!). Really there is nothing that I could find fault with when buying a Cadbury Freddo Frog and for that reason it gets a top score of 5 out of 5 stars and an exceptionally high recommendation. I suspect I shall continue to buy these for a little while to come!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
When my children were small we used to take them out in the car and tell them that if they were good they could have a Cadbury's Freddo Frog on the way home when we went to the garage, this became a regular routine and they are now grown up and buy them for their children. It's funny what things you pass on too your children.
A Cadbury's Freddo Frog will cost you 10p and you can buy them in single bars or multi packs from the supermarket, they are without doubt delicious mini bites of heavenly cadbury's milk chocolate, just enough for a treat but not enough to spoil an appetite.
The cartoon frog on the front of the stay fresh packet is the shape of the chocolate bar inside the packet. an attractive bar for little children and big kids like me.

They aren't really that healthy for you as you can see the fat content is very high so it's a good job its only a small bar of chocolate eating more than one will help you to gain weight rapidly so be careful as they are delicious.
If you have a nut allergy then also be careful as there is a warning of may contain nuts on the packet as some chocolate bars are packet where the nut products are made and stray nuts could go in them by mistake, but I think it's a rare occurrence.
The web site www.cadbury.co.uk is there for you to have a look at if you have any queries.
On the whole these are tasty little treats, they are also good for hiding between the layers aof a pass the parcel at a childrens birthday party as they are a nice surprise and affordable to make the game more entertaining, as all children love chocolate treats.

Cadbury's Freddo Frog is a shaped chocolate bar consisting of a 15 gram solid piece of Cadbury's milk chocolate shaped into a frog. Introduced in 1930 and remaining popular today, the range also includes versions filled with strawberry, peppermint or caramel. Freddo Frogs can be found in corner shops and petrol stations and you should expect to pay 15p for a standard bar.
The bar comes packaged in an easy open purple wrapper, with the smiling figure of a (dressed) frog on the front. Freddo dairy milk is stamped across his T-Shirt. The bars should be kept in a cool dark place (or the fridge in hot weather) and the chocolate will keep for several months.
Per bar, Freddo Frog contains 105 calories, 11.3 grams of carbohydrate and 5.9 grams of fat. As with any chocolate, proportionately the fat content is high. However, this is a very small bar, so if you are on a diet or trying to be good they can be a good 'quick fix' of chocolate.
Cadbury's Freddo Frog is very straightforward - it is a block of Cadbury's milk chocolate, and as such is milky, smooth and delicious. Because of their size, these are also good for children's parties and goody bags.
I love Cadbury Freddo's, I used to buy these when I was at school, as they only used to cost 10pence, my friends and myself used to scour the playground for dropped pennies and once we had 10p each, we would all go to the shop and get a freddo.
Yesterday I was surprised that Freddos are still being sold, I hadn't seen them around in ages. I was disappointed to see that the price has increased by 50%, now costing a whopping 15pence! For the money, you get a 15gram portion of Cadbury chocolate, shaped like a frog.
The outer packaging is Cadbury purple, and has the smiley green frog wearing a yellow t shirt on it, the 15p is marked on the front too. The bar is around 7cm tall by 3cm wide.
Opening the packet is easy, tears open without a problem to reveal the chocolate itself, if you look at it for long enough, it definitely resembles a frog, it has the eyes and face marked out. The taste is just the same as any Cadbury milk chocolate. Nice and creamy and smooth. I find these are best out of the fridge when the chocolate hardens.
For me these are an ideal treat and you will usually find them by the till in shops and petrol stations. For me they are a bitesize treat, but for children it will probably be a few mouthfuls.
Although the price has increased, I would still recommend these. They're perfect for using up lose change in your pockets. Each bar only has 85calories so they're not too bad for you either.
I used to have freddo the frog Cadbury chocolate bars as a child and now I buy them for my daugther, she loves them just as much as I did.
They are little minature cadbury chocolate bars moulded into the shape of freddo the frog.
The picture above shows a freddo chocolate bar with a turquoise background, mine has the traditional cadbury purple background, mine also shows the price at 17p, this has recently increased as I'm sure they used to be only 15p and when I was a child they were only 10p if I remember correctly.
The chocolate bar weighs about 20g and is 7cm x 3cm approx, each bar contains 95 calories and 5.4g of fat, as long as you only eat one at a time I don't think this is too bad.
I got these for my daughter to have as an afterschool snack, but I also feel they are a guilt free treat for me too for those times when you just have to have chocolate.
You can purchase these from most newsagents, I've also seen them in the super market sweet isle.
They are made from the same Cadbury dairy milk chocolate we all recognise, the one with the purple wrapper, that lovely creamy chocolate that melts on the tongue.
They are aslo avaliable with a soft caramel centre, but I have never tried these.
When I was little I can remember every time my dad used to go up to the local shop to pick up a newspaper I would always walk up there with him. I think it was a source of bribery as I would always seem to come home with a Freddo for being good.
These used to be only 10p when I was younger as were easily affordable from my whole 50p pocket money. I recently went into the Sainsbury's petrol station and saw them tucked away on the bottom shelf and decided to get one for my daughter. I noticed they now retail at 15p.
This cute little frog chocolate is around 2 inches tall and 3 cm's wide. They are fairly thick, I would say around half a centimetre. On the front of the chocolate is the design of a frog that is obviously called Freddo.
Freddo is made by Cadburys and is pure dairy milk chocolate. This chocolate is great to eat as it has a lovely smooth creamy texture which tastes lovely and will always leave you wanting more. I love it when it starts to melt away in my mouth giving me a lovely chocolate aroma which tastes and smell divine.
Not only can you purchase the plain milk chocolate freddo, you can also get caramel versions for the same price.
If you have not yet tried these Freddo's I would recommend giving them a try. Priced at only 15pewnce they are a bargain and will keep you little ones quite for a whole 5 minutes.
Well before I start let me tell you that my Freddo bar looks nothing like this one on here. My wrapper is purple in colour and has a picture of a happy green frog in a white t shirt. Across the front it says Dairy Milk. So I am under no illusions what I will find when I open my wrapper?
Wrong. Upon opening this little bar of chocolate I am immediately met by a frog shaped piece of milk chocolate. Obviously it has been poured out of some kind of mould. I remember similar when I was younger and upon reading up a bit of history these had been around in the 1970's before being withdrawn and returning in the 1990's.
They cost 15p at present, although I do remember it was only a few years ago, that they cost 10p, then 12p, but I guess inflation has taken its toll.
The milk chocolate frog bar has only 105 calories of lovely dairy milk chocolate. You can easily bite through the frog and you can hear the chocolate snap as your teeth go through. The kids love them. In fact we use them for party bags. I love them as well as a quick snack. They are small enough to to ruin anybodys appetite. I fully recommend them to all who enjoy dairy milk chocolate.
Cadbury seem to be changing the titles of all their chocolate bars to include Dairy milk, we once had the Cadburys caramel but we now have the Dairy milk with caramel and where the Turkish delight bar used to be known as Cadbury Turkish delight it is now Cadbury Dairy milk with Turkish delight.
I cannot really see the point for this but hey what does it matter really, well that is until I found out that they have renamed the Freddo Frog bars... Cadbury freddo dairy milks, how ridiculous and a bit sad.
Freddo`s will always be Freddo forgs to me and they will always be a chocolate I buy, I mainly buy them for the grandkids but if I fancy just a little bit of chocolate then these are perfect, there is about the same amount of chocolate in one of the frog shaped fellows as there is in the slim dairy milk bar which was once known as the wildlife bar (another name change) but I prefer it small and chunky like this to long and flat like the bars.
Freddos have been with us since the 60`s, when I would like to say I was just a lad but the truth is my wife and I got married in the late 60`s so I was a little older than just a lad. I have been enjoying these frog shaped chocolate bars ever since they have been around and will continue to till I am not around.
I suppose I should say exactly what a Freddo is just in case someone has just arrived from the moon and doesn't know, it is a frog shaped chunk of Cadbury chocolate cleverly marketed at kids, nothing more, nothing less but like all Cadbury products it is very good.
You can expect to pay around 15 to 20p for one of these today, I remember buying them for less than ten pence but when you consider how much other chocolate bars have gone up i think these remain very decent value for money.
Harry Melbourne invented the beloved Freddo Frog in 1930 - Today Freddo is one of Australias most popular childrens chocolate.
