George Osborne has delivered his 2016 budget and has announced that the price of a Freddo bar is to be held at 25p.
The announcement spells good news for schoolchildren, tightarses and those who can’t afford a Twix. Packets of Space Raiders have also been held at 20p.
A spokesman for the government told WalesOnCraic:
“We’ve been pushing for a freeze on the price of Freddo bars for the last three years. Ideally, we were hoping for a price reduction but we realise that we are all in this together. We are pleased that the Chancellor has seen sense and held the price of a Freddo bar, as well as those of Space Raiders. It means that I can get two Freddos and two packets of Space Raiders for lunch and still have change.”
Freddo fan Freddy Fredricks said:
“I’m over the moon. In fact, I’m going down to see Ajmol down the corner shop so I can buy a shitload off him. Thanks George – you’re the best.”
The price freeze will not affect multipacks.
