Supermarket chain Tesco has slashed the price of various popular items in celebration of its 100th birthday.
The supermarket, which started out as one market stall in 1919, now has more than 3,400 stores nationwide.
To mark the supermarket turning 100, Tesco is discounting the price of a wide range of products, from well-known brands of cheese to coffee and chocolate – including the renowned Freddo.
Price of Freddos slashed to 10p
The popular Freddo has been the subject of controversy over the past few years, as the chocolate bar has crept up and up in price, much to the dismay of fans.
In 2000 the price of a Freddo was just 10p, but in 2017 the chocolate treat increased to 30p. After public outrage, Cadbury reduced it slightly, to 25p.
However, for this week only Freddos will be 10p again in every Tesco store, a large reduction from the usual 26p price tag.
This better than half price deal is in place until Sunday (27 Jan).
