Freya Chocolate |  Nedar accuses Freya of stealing chocolate: – It’s very similar

(The newspaper online): Freya Popple disappeared from the market seven years ago. Now the chocolate has been relaunched again, which has pleased many and angered others.

The chocolate has been given a new design, both on the packaging and on the chocolate bar itself. It’s suspiciously similar to Stratos’ blue bubble chocolate, which has been among Norwegians’ favorite chocolates since its launch in 1936.

– We think that the graphic design on the packaging for the Freia Bobble is very similar to that of the Stratos, says Elisabeth Anstad Eckheim, communications manager at Orkla Norway for Nettavisen.

Orkla is the parent company of Nidar. Ekheim confirms that they have been in contact with Mondelez, Freia’s parent company, about changing the design of the chocolate.
