If you’re feeling a little extra sweet today, there’s a good reason why! Today is the ninth annual FruChocs Appreciation Day.

The day offers an opportunity to praise and indulge in the South Australian iconic chocolate coated peach and apricot balls that have been produced for over 70 years.

With a focus on local collaborations to commemorate the special day this year, South Aussies will have the chance to be treated to TWO limited edition FruChoc beer flavours by Adelaide’s Big Shed Brewing Concern.

Available from midday today at Big Shed Brewing, Royal Park, the BruChoc beer will be sold in eight packs, four packs and singles and on tap. It was also be available to buy at local bottle shops.

“We always thought that partnering with an iconic SA company like Robern Menz and their FruChoc’s would generate a response, but we had no idea it would create that level of response with BruChocs selling out in record time last year…” says Big Shed Co-Owner, Craig Basford.

“In these crazy times it’s the sort of thing to give you belief that things will return to ‘normal’ at some stage.”

Art for FruChocs

Additionally, Robern Menz has collaborated with local illustrator Casey C, to create a collection of custom designed gift boxes for its FruChocs products.

“The fact that my love of South Australia and my artwork can blend into this moment with FruChocs, is one of the highlights of my career, and I’m so proud to be a part of such an iconic brands history,” says Casey.

The limited-edition boxes are available from 21 August 2020 in the Menz FruChoc shops in Glynde, Hahndorf and McLaren Vale, and are set to become collectors’ items.
