In South Australia, we’re super-proud of everything home-grown. After all, we do produce some of the finest food and wine on the planet, so it comes as no surprise that we also create some of the best snacks in the world, like the legendary Robern Menz FruChocs.
These delicious balls of chocolate-coated-apricots are always there to satisfy your chocolate cravings, while making you feel slightly less guilty for scoffing a whole bag because there’s some kind of fruit in there (sort of).
Rightfully so, these decadent goodies have earned themselves their very own day of celebration. FruChocs Appreciation Day is a real and very relevant thing, happening on the 25th of August and celebrating it’s 6th year running.
‘But how can I get involved and show my dedication to one of SA’s best treats?’ I hear you ask. Fortunately, another local icon Rundle Mall is playing host to a plethora of chocolate-apricot themed activities, including a FruChocs replica of the Malls Balls, a FruChocs photo booth, games, competitions, donut decorating and plenty of FruChocs and FruChoc Krispy Kreme donut giveaways.
The celebrations will be held between 9am-7pm, with special guests like the Adelaide Basketball Cheer Team, Nova Casanovas, Adelady and the FruChocs mascot, Mr FruChoc, all coming along to show their love of FruChocs.
If you can’t get to Rundle Mall, there are so many other ways to get involved! Lovers of FruChocs can celebrate by bringing some FruChocs to work, baking some of the delivious FruChocs recipes here, buy a packet to share with friends and family or visit one of the FruChocs Shops in Glynde, Hahndorf or McLaren Vale and save 25% on the day.
If this sounds like your cup of tea, make sure you sign up to the FruChocs Appreciation Society, a membership club of Stonecutter’s proportions that provides cardholders with a range of rewards to their 17,000 members. You can do this on the day in Rundle Mall or via Robern Menz website here.
We’ll see you all there this Friday, and don’t forget to tag your photos with @RundleMall and @MenzFruChocs to go in the draw to win a year’s supply of FruChocs and three month’s supply of Krispy Kreme donuts!
