Get your Freddos for 10p for one week only

Do you remember when Freddos cost just 10p? Well this week is your chance to step back in time thanks to Tesco.
As part of their 100-year anniversary celebrations, the supermarket giant will be selling the popular Cadbury frog chocolate bar at their original price of 10p - a 16p saving on their usual price of 26p.
You can take advantage of the offer in Tesco supermarkets and their smaller Tesco Extra stores, including the one in St Matthew’s Street in Ipswich town centre.
Earlier today Tesco tweeted: “ To celebrate 100 years of Tesco, the 10p Freddo is back! #Tesco100Years #10pfreddo.” The offer will run all week finishing on Sunday, January 27.
Louise Hitchcock,42, who works at the Tourist Information Centre in Ipswich, was delighted to hear about the price drop and will be stocking up at Tesco this week.
She said: “ I remember when Freddos cost 10p, me and my daughters love them. Normally I buy them in a multipack as it works out cheaper.”
Lesley Sathuphap, 46, who was shopping in Ipswich town centre this morning, said: “I still thought they cost 10p! It’s been a while since I have bought one. If I am in Tesco I might get one but I won’t make a special trip.”
There was outrage last year when the price of Freddos rose to 30p but thanks to a petition the recommended retail price went down to 25p.
