You can now switch the Quality Street Christmas tin for something even better… a Freddo & Friends chocolate tin which is now available at Asda – plus it’s super cheap!
It’s official. The nation’s favourite cheery chocolate frog officially has a chocolate Christmas tin. It’s almost good enough to redeem the fact the tiny chocolate bars are now 30p, a whopping 20p more than they used to be!
The chocolate frogs appear to have a festive-themed transformation, with Freddo the Frog taking fashion advice from Santa Claus when it comes to what hats to wear.
For the Xmas-themed chocolate tin, Dairy Milk Freddos have teamed up with Caramel Freddos, chocolate buttons and Fudge bars in a 420g tin to make the ultimate chocolatey snack.
The greatest part about this new product is that it comes for the bargain price of only £4. This probably means you should stock up on a few, so when Christmas is over you can still have those comforting nibbles.
You could even use the Freddo chocolate tin as an advent calendar, with four packets of buttons and 22 chocolate bars.
The bargain was originally spotted on the Facebook page Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK.
Mondelez, owner of Toblerone and Cadburys has stated the reason for the chocolate portions decreasing in recent years: “It is well reported that food and drink manufacturers have been experiencing increasing input costs for some time which, coupled with recent foreign exchange pressures, are making food products more expensive to make.
“We have, and continue to, carry these increased costs within our business as much as possible because our priority is to keep our brands as affordable as we can. Increasing prices is always a last resort, but to ensure we can keep people’s favourite brands on the shelf and look after the 4,000 people we employ in the UK, we are having to make some selective price increases with our customers in the UK.”
This might not satisfy everyone, but for £4 a tin it doesn’t sound like much to complain about this time around.
The chocolate tins can be bought in-store or online.
