Cadbury Dairy Milk Popping Candy Freddo


We're not used to different flavours of Freddo in the UK - unlike Australia who get varieties such as strawberry, mint, white chocolate, hundreds and thousands, etc. But Mondelez are trying to change that this year, with the release of this new Dairy Milk Freddo Popping Candy in time for Christmas. The packaging comes in a "knitted" style design, which Cadbury are rolling out across their entire Christmas range this year.


These Freddos do exactly what they say on the tin - they're simply Dairy Milk chocolate with the addition of a bit of popping candy, in the shape of Freddo the frog. The chocolate tasted nice enough; it was very sweet and creamy as Dairy Milk is known for. The popping candy brought a slight crackle to my mouth but nothing majorly exciting.


Overall, as tasty as these were I think they're a bit of a boring limited edition for Christmas. It would've been far more exciting if Cadbury had brought out the strawberry or mint-filled Freddo's that are already available in Australia...or even the ones with hundreds and thousands!

Price: 20p each, available at Tesco and some newsagents.
Suitable for vegetarians?: Yes.
Allergy Information: Contains milk and soya. May contain gluten, wheat, nuts.
Nutrition Information (per 18g Freddo): 95 Calories, 5.2g Fat (3.2g Saturates), 10.5g Carbohydrates (10.5g Sugars).

  1. I agree popping candy is so boring! Peppermint would have been much better themed for Christmas as well!

    1. Agreed! Or maybe even peppermint bark like they get in the US.

  2. I really am envious of the Australian varieties on offer. Worse is that any I've tried from there have usually gone bad in transit.

  3. I noticed that there is a difference in the Dairy Milk logo. Are they changing it again, do you know?
