Freddo Prices Rise Again!

The nations favourite sweet treat for many years is slowly losing its popularity. This is not because of a change of ingredients nor any opposing competition but due to the shocking price increases as of late. Back in 2010, Cadbury sold over 6 billion Freddo chocolates in England alone, a further 4 billion in the rest of the UK. This was undoubtedly due to the reasonable price of 15p which it once cost. That price elevated to 25p in 2014 and the sales of the chocolate delight brought misery to Cadbury with the number of sales falling by over 50 to 4 billion treats in 2015. Freddo comes in various forms: Caramel; Popping Candy, Strawberry etc. School children for many years have spent their easily wastable pocket money on these light treats, whether it be before school, out with their friends, or as a reward for going to the shop for their parents/carers. A shock came last night as Cadbury revealed that it's price is to escalate even further! Prices are said to be rising to 69p for a single Freddo! (Which are also shrinking in size). The people of Great Britain are outraged at this, not just because of the prices but because of the sentimental value the classic 15p chocolate frog once had. It has been enjoyed for generations but soon, it may be the end for Freddo. Experts say that if Cadbury keep on with these outrageous price changes, there will eventually be no Cadbury brand at all.
