After a few cheeky tweets between the Premier and SA’s fave chocolatey icon, FruChocs fans took to social media, encouraging the Premier to grant an official day off to celebrate all things FruChocs! The Premier then followed up with a YouTube video declaring this Friday, 30 August 2013, FruChocs Appreciation Day!
The ‘viral’ video uploaded to YouTube- http://youtu.be/mQQsXB1Ds0I -shows SA’s Premier talking to the hearts and stomachs of his fellow South Australians and even taking a patriotic stance declaring that “If Melbourne can celebrate a horse race, surely we can take some time to reflect on the significance of these tasty treats. They’re better than anything that comes from across the border.” Paraphrasing Former Prime Minister Bob Hawke, the Premier goes on to say, “any boss who sacks a worker for eating FruChocs at work is a bum.”
Of course the tweets and video were tongue in cheek and as much as we wish it were official, it looks like we’ll all still have to show up to work, albeit with FruChocs in hand!
Here are some ideas how YOU can celebrate FruChocs Appreciation Day:
- The FruChocs Shop (Hahndorf, Glynde, McLaren Vale & online) are offering a full day of festivities with discounts, special offers, face painting, Wallis Cinema movie ticket give-aways, SAFM live crosses from their Glynde store, taste testing, Mr FruChoc and much more!
