Freddo bars have FINALLY returned to 10p after years of price hikes 🍫 🐸

All is right with the world again 🙌

Freddo

There are certain foods that make everyone feel nostalgic about their childhoods - anyone else miss seeing a Wagon Wheel in their lunch box? One chocolate we can all agree on loving is the humble Freddo bar, a small chunk of Cadbury's Dairy Milk chocolate in the shape of a frog.

One of the best things about the Freddo was the fact that, no matter which shop you went into, they were always 10p - and one of the biggest outrages of our generation is the constant inflation of our froggy friend.

Thankfully, Tesco are doing us all a favour and reducing their prices for their 100-year anniversary campaign - including the Freddo, which is once again being sold for 10p.

Sadly, the Freddo bars are only back to their original price throughout the campaign, and are thought to be returning to the new price of 25p after this week. Tesco's chief customer officer, Alessandra Bellini, said, "We understand that the nation wanted to see the price of the iconic Freddo chocolate bars return to the original price of 10p.

"Given we are celebrating 100 years of great value, we’re really pleased to have been able to give our customers what they want, and have some fun at the same time."

After being off the shelves for years, Tiffin made its comeback in 2016. Hallelujah!

2) Cadbury Coconut Boost

The core centre made up of dessicated coconut combined with a normal Boost bar was just too good - why on EARTH was this masterpiece ever taken out of circulation?!

3) Mars Delight

That caramel and chocolate cream filling mixed with that wafer, was a pure delight. Sadly, we despite people's efforts, this Mars chocolate bar won't be returning anytime soon.

Milk and white chocolate AND praline in one bar? Yup. Cadbury's really are one of the best at coming up with new recipes.

6) Time Out

The Time Out was very slyly taken off the shelves - basically a chocolate wafer, but SO MUCH MORE. Thankfully, they still exist in shops as a single wafer.

7) Cadbury Snow Flake

The geniuses at Cadbury decided to merge their white Dream chocolate with the standard flake to create utter perfection in this little bar. But why, oh why, did they stop making them?!

12) Terry's Pyramint

Basically, a pyramid version of an After Eight but with a slightly sloppier middle. We miss these!

13) KitKat Senses

We can't for the life of us think why these went extinct. But they've been refashioned in a selection box, so that's something at least.

14) Milkybar Choo

We're hoping this one will make a comeback. The strange combination of white chocolate and fudge worked surprisingly perfectly.

15) Cadbury Taz Bar

When Taz became extinct, this chocolate bar was revolutionised as a Freddo bar with caramel. But we miss that devil.

17) Cadbury Snaps

They're like Pringles - but chocolate. And just like our favourite snack, you couldn't ever just have one Snap!

18) Rowntree's Secret

Withdrawn due to low sales volumes, the marshmallow centre wrapped in thick chocolate was a real treat back in the day.

19) Cadbury Wispa Mint

We've all had a Wispa, haven't we? But the mint version had an extra edge to it that was just simply divine. Sigh.

The mighty chew.

21) Flyte

Forget Maltesers, this really was a lighter way to enjoy chocolate.

Fans of the chocolate are over the moon about the temporary reduction in price, and took to Twitter to share their happiness. One wrote, 'The good times are coming back!' as another added, 'I'll be stocking up every day!'
