Freddo Frogs and Caramello Koalas – a childhood institution

Three of my absolute favourite treats from my childhood involve chocolate. Wait – are you getting the idea that I spent my formative years eating chocolate? I guess I did! (thanks mum!)

These treats are not sophisticated at all but evoke fond memories…

Behold Caramello Koala (formerly Caramello Bear), Strawberry Freddo (love that he has his own Facebook page!) and Peppermint Freddo.

The other day we stopped at the corner store to buy milk and I was delighted to see my three old friends on the counter. Of course they came home with me.

Caramello Koala:

Strawberry Freddo:

and Peppermint Freddo:

Did I eat all three in one go?

You bet I did!

The blog made me do it!

  1. Yummy! I had never seen these before… but they'll be first thing I'll be looking for whenever I get a chance to visit Australia!

  2. you know my girls would be all over these things! oh, and that green peppermint filling totally took me by surprise – i was expecting white!

  3. I'm with you, despite my gourmet cooking skills these are still among my favorite treats!! We have a great & diverse selection of store bought chocolates in Australia 😀
