- Freddo Frogs chocolate have a new design
- The 2023 character is much skinnier than the one in the 80s
- Aussies online were joking Freddo was ‘on meth’ and need to ‘go to rehab’
Australians have been left in stitches after noticing the new design of the iconic Freddo Frog chocolates.
The Cadbury character has been given a modern makeover but foodies aren’t so sure it’s for the best as some are saying he looks like he’s ‘lost a lot of weight’ and ‘needs to go to rehab’.
Present-day Freddo Frog is much skinnier with gangling limbs and overly-wide eyes as opposed to the old rounder version.
Nostalgic Aussies are mocking the new design of Freddo Frog chocolates saying the Cadbury character now looks like he’s ‘on meth’
‘Eighties Freddo Vs 2020 Freddo What’s Freddo On…Meth?’ one Aussie wrote in a post to popular Facebook group Meanwhile in Australia.
‘Not sure what happened to Freddo, he’s clearly been on slippery slope for the last 40 years.’
Thousands mocked the new-look Freddo joking it looked like he was now ‘on drugs’.

‘Freddo found the rave scene, doof doof double drop,’ one woman laughed.
‘Stoned in the eighties, on meth in 2020,’ another quipped.

Others thought the new design was a sign of ‘shrinkflation’, a term used to describe when products get smaller but stay at the same price or get more expensive.
‘You get ripped off these days. They used to have a balance of chocolate to creme filling and now you get charged so much more and get b***** all filling in them,’ one man complained.
‘When I was a kid you got MORE for your money!! Exact opposite these days, products are shrinking but you pay MORE for them!!’ another ranted.
