One For All Lovers Of Cadbury Freddo Frogs!
I found out today that a new flavour of Cadbury Freddo frogs will shortly become available. This will add to the current range of Peppermint, Strawberry, Dairy Milk, Dream and 100s and 1000s.
I will leave which one it is as a surprise. But whilst I’m on the subject, I thought it’d be a good idea to explore the history of the Freddo.
Cadbury Freddo Frogs History
Now made by Cadbury, Freddo was the brainchild of one Harry Melbourne. An 18-year-old moulder who was employed by the Australian confectionery company MacRobertson’s.
Legend has it that at the beginning of the 1930 the company was toying with the idea of launching a chocolate mouse. This was in an effort to boost sales in their children’s range.
Believing this would not sell on that basis that women and children were scared of mice, Melbourne set about designing a more suitable alternative.
Intrigued by the idea, when it was pitched to him by Harry, Macpherson Robertson the owner of MacRobertson Chocolates is reputed to have said ‘I’d like to see one, make one up and bring it over to my office’.
Three days later he did just that and the rest as they say is history.
Shaped like an upstanding, fully dressed frog the iconic product is now sold around the world. It is especially popular in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Ireland and Zimbabwe.
It is sold in a variety of formats including a 15g, a 35g size and a 200g share pack. The smaller size in particular is often given to children as a treat by parents who would prefer them not to each bigger sized chocolate bars or lollies.
Integrated into the Cadbury product family in 1967, when MacRobertson’s was sold to Cadbury the product is now manufactured for the Australian market predominantly in Ringwood, Victoria, a suburb located some 23km east of the Melbourne CBD. Incredibly some 98 million Cadbury Freddo frogs are consumed every year in the lucky country.
According to numerous sources the world record for the most amount of Freddo Frogs eaten in one minute is four – which if you ask me sounds perfectly breakable!
