Aye, tis true.

Freddo is huge over here. But you know what, Australia have fucked up on Chomp bars and they taste like a Double Decker/Twix thing. Woe is me.

And they don't have Taz bars at all. They have Caramello Koala instead, I think it's pretty odd since Tasmania is part of Aus so it would make sense to have Taz bars.

This is just making me hungry now, but I thought I'd chuck in a comment anyways!

damn straight, freddo bars are the best. im not a fan of mixing up the flavours, the plain choc one is my favourite one. animal bars are also pretty good, but freddo still comes out on top!

lol, fuckin up the chomp flavour. havent seen a taz bar in a long while.

as far as wikipedia informs me, taz was phased out and just turned into freddo caramel!

australian's are desperate fat cunts, they have chains of cake shops, its like dixons except for cakes! and theres numerous ones! but the variety of freddo technology is exciting....
