My face when I read the OP:


Inflation gone mad! Any minute now I'll have to take a wheelbarrow full of money to the shop just to buy a couple of pints of milk!

A taz was just a caramel freddo.
Yep, much nicer than plain chocolate!

Also a lot messier if you bit into it and the chocolate fractured rather than breaking where your teeth went in. Caramel everywhere.

I used to love them things and I used to revel in their cheapness. I too have not touched a Freddo since its' initial price increase.

20p Freddos???

Royal wedding, Osama is dead, long period of clear skies and warm weather, new girlfriend, nearly done with another year of uni and then this happens.



Think I'm just gotta shoot myself now, life is clearly not worth living.

Once Space Raiders started increasing in price from their traditional 10p, the same happening with Freddos was only a matter of time

I blame Kraft Foods for buying out Cadburys.

Not happy with this!

I also blame David Cameron for raising VAT. It is clear that the primary reason for this tax hike was to cash in on the billions of pounds raised annually from the lucrative Freddo industry.

I just sicked in my mouth a little :puke:

I remember 10p not sure about 5p.

Something should be done! hopefully if enough people stop buying them they will lower the price.... but this could backfire and it could go the way of the Taz, RIP

You may as well just fork out a little extra for a normal bar of choc.... maybe this is their sick plan! aghhhhh

As the price of cocoa goes up so does the price of childhood memories...

Will the world learn nothing from it's mistakes?!
