I only bought seven caramel Freddos today. I gave two to Tony.
Didn't they used to be called Taz, or something?
and the Taz one was caramel? Or is it a variant on the traditional Freddo... or am I talking shit.
In Australia they have like Strawberry and shit as well innit.
i'm SURE i've tried it!
and taz bars before them.
i will now have to stop at the sweet shop on my way home for them. good going, colin.
or is he purely an invention of the chocolate industry?
Cadbury's Freddo Frog was invented in 1930 by Harry Melbourne, an 18 year old moulder.
MacRobertson's were looking to add a new product to their children's range. Initially styled as a chocolate mouse, Harry Melbourne felt that this would not sell, reasoning that women and children were afraid of mice and would dislike the product. Thus, Freddo was born.
he's obviously never had sugar mice, if you're scared of it you can eat its head!
"Harry Melbourne died on 24 January 2007, aged 94, in a nursing home in Melbourne."
WHY WASN'T THERE A NATIONAL DAY OF MOURNING?
Cadburys announce release of life sized Freddo (5ft) to commemorate the Queens Jubilee. Doctors alert parents to the dangers of child gorging.
I shall make Zonino 3 a tribute to him.
If I can ever fucking sort the thing out.
pleeease? but yes, Freddo must be on the flyer.
and let me dj for 5 minutes. pleasey?
wherever the FA cup takes us
we get a Sunday draw :s
I'm sure you didn't get these when I was a kid
I remember rummaging through some of my dads stuff from when he was a kid, and finding a bunch of freddo wrappers, and being amazed, a/cos I'd never heard of them and b/ cos I found out where I got the hoarding gene from
There was a minor outrage in early April 2006 in the UK when the price of a standard non-Caramel Freddo rose to 15p (an increase of 5p).
today i printed out a colour-me-in freddo and told him if he coloured it in his prize would be a freddo and an LCT. he coloured in one line on freddo's shorts and returned it. not good enough tony.
it's in the shop
They don't realise that this minor price increase spoils the whole freddo dynamic.
