Cadbury's New Freddo Biscuits Are Getting Some Hate On Twitter
Fans of Cadbury's Freddo (basically everyone) you'll want to read this.
Cadbury has launched a biscuit version of the classic Freddo bar and they look ideal for dunking into a hot beverage.
The new biscuit version of Freddo is covered in milk chocolate on one side and is packaged into shareable (although the sharing part is optional) snack packs.
The biscuits are bigger than the Freddo bite-size chocolate bars and they are available to buy now from Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury's or Morrison's for £1.50.
With an RRP of £1.29 for a pack of six biccys, the price is pretty reasonable compared to the individual chocolate bars which currently cost 25p, having gone down from 30p earlier this year. Pretty extortionate considering we remember when they cost just 5p!
Some shoppers have been left annoyed about the new product, with some saying that it 'doesn't taste that nice' and that it 'better not start rising in price' like its chocolate counterparts.
Will these start off at 10p each then increase to £5 million like the Freddo chocolates?????- Lee carroll (@lcarrol08242377) May 29, 2018
Cadbury announced the new Freddo biscuit will be hitting stores on National Biscuit Day on May 29th but chocolate lovers were quick to question the price and also accused Cadbury of changing their much-loved recipe.
They aren't that nice to be honest. Needs a lot more chocolate. It's so thin in places you can see the biscuit though it.- simonjhutton (@simonjhutton) May 30, 2018
They tweeted: "NEW Freddo Biscuits are spinning into the biscuit aisle. Crunchy biscuit dipped
in delicious milk chocolate... Freddo meet Freddo!"

Another person said: "Seriously I just ate a Wispa and it tasted horrible. Wtf have y'all done to the best chocolate brand?! I wish I stocked up in 2010."
A fourth said: "It's a shame that since Cadburys has been ruined, not only will we never be able to enjoy the true #Cadbury taste, but neither will our kids."
