You can now buy Cadbury Freddo hot chocolate, so put the kettle on, will you?


Remember Freddos? Course you do – they were a fun ‘thing’ that you ate as a child, because they were shaped like a frog, and kids eat frogs. Don’t worry though, I’m not going to go into the whole price-hike thing that every news site has to mention when talking about Freddos, mainly because I didn’t give a flying shit that they went up in price. Didn’t bother me in the slightest.

Anyway, because for some reason people love Freddos so much – even though they are literally just Cadbury Dairy Milk bars shaped like a frog – Cadbury have created Freddo hot chocolate. 

“What is Freddo hot chocolate?” you ask.

Well, it is Cadbury Drinking Chocolate, but it’s shaped like a frog.

“But how can hot chocolate be shaped like a frog?” you ask.

You’ve got me there. It is not shaped like a frog. It is exactly the same as Cadbury Drinking Chocolate.

“That’s strange. So what’s different?” you ask.

Erm, it has a frog on the packaging. Oh and it’s smaller. And more expensive.

So that’s what Freddo hot chocolate is – it is the same as normal Cadbury drinking chocolate, but you have to pay more because there is a frog on the front.

The Metro actually spoke to Cadbury about this, because you know, seems a bit like selling one hot for the price of two chocolates. Here’s what they had to say:

“We have a wide variety of Cadbury hot chocolate products and launched Cadbury Freddo Drinking Chocolate as Cadbury Freddo is a much loved brand.

“Cadbury Freddo Drinking Chocolate is designed to be a treat for families and we recommend a serving suggestion which ultimately delivers a completely different taste and chocolate experience than Cadbury Drinking Chocolate, which is designed for adults. So, once prepared, the two products taste substantially different and present a different nutritional profile.

“Cadbury Freddo Drinking Chocolate is available in 175g tubs and Cadbury Drinking Chocolate is available in 250g/500g/750g tubs.”


Oh well, you can buy it if you want. It’s been out since September, but people are only realising now, because, God, I don’t know.

I just don’t know. Just buy the normal one, everyone. It’s cheaper, and if we’re being honest with ourselves here – that frog on the front looks like a bit of a knobhead. Don’t encourage him.
