Freddo – A Man for All Seasons

They say a good man is hard to find. I don't know about this. There's always been a man in my life who's made me happy, never disappointed me, helped me out with the kids and generally put a smile on my face. Best of all, he'll fit in your handbag or you glove box, so perfect he's the right person in emergencies.

Freddo. How good is he? 

Sure, he's over 80 years old, but he comes in a range of sizes and flavours - Strawberry, Peppermint, Crispy, Milk Top. A man for every occasion. 

I haven't been as good to Freddo as he has been to me. I have been known to cheat on my beloved Freddo with his good mate Caramello:

But Freddo is such a top bloke, he always welcomes me back. No questions asked. 

Around Easter Show time, I have been known to flirt with his rival Bertie Beetle. But again, Bertie is no contest for Freddo.

Freddo is also great with the kids. I just have to mention his name and my girls turn into angels, hopeful of seeing their favourite frog once more. 

If you're looking for me today, I'm spending some quality time with my main man. Please don't interrupt us. Freddo. Sigh. You are perfection. 

Note: I wasn't paid for this post, this is just an outpouring of my adoration of a truly wonderful man. If, however, Cadbury wished to pay in cash or product, I certainly wouldn't be hanging up the phone. Just saying....


  1. Freddo IS the man. But variety is the spice of life! I've been known to have a fling with Caramello myself, so don't feel bad!

  2. you are one funny lady! But I never thought you would betray mr bertie! especially with easter just around the corner...x

  3. I've never seen Freddo here in the US, but at Easter we have Reese's Chocolate & Peanut Butter EGGS. Not rinky, dinky little CUPS...but whole, joyous eggs of chocolate and peanut butter. Heaven I tell you, and even better frozen!

  4. Freddo is my dream man, small, silent, rich and tasty.

  5. Eleanor - Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, drooooool. We don't have them here (let alone Easter Egg versions!) and I love them!

  6. Wow - I can't believe Freddo is cheating on me with you! And Caramello! They've both been VERY important men in my life since I was far too young to be having affairs with men.

  7. Gorgeous Corinne! And isn't he just da bomb!?
    I have had a love affair going on with Freddo since I was a wee thing. One of my earliest memories is of losing a Freddo (a white one I believe) on my way home from the shops with my Mama. Well I took my little self back out the gate... unbeknown to my parents... to retrace my steps and look for the little guy. To this day my brothers AND my parents talk about the day they almost lost me for the sake of a Freddo Frog. But hey, I knew what I was doing ;o)
    P.S. I was a little disheartened when Cadbury decided to go all GFC-stinge-meister on us and half the thickness of Freddo... who needs a skinny Freddo, right!?


Thank you so much for your comments! I'm always thrilled to hear from you.
