Make FruChoc Appreciation Day a Public Holiday for all South Australians Petition

Robern Menz and fruchoc lovers around South Australia and beyond are calling upon the SA Premier to make FruChoc Appreciation Day a public holiday in SA. 

With 60 million FruChocs made each year, their own mascot Mr FruChoc, officially an ‘Icon of South Australia’ and over 15,000 FruChoc Society members, FruChoc Appreciation Day is a great day to celebrate and now Robern Menz is serious about wanting to declare it a public holiday.

The online petition titled “Make FruChoc Appreciation Day a Public Holiday for all South Australians” has accumulated over 2000 signatures and hundreds of comments in support.

For FruChocaholics, it’s seen as a day that will bring us together, a day that will unite us as chocolate loving people of all shapes and sizes and colours and faiths and everything.

Phil Sims, CEO, Robern Menz said:

If there’s one thing we’ve learned over the last ten years of having FruChocs Appreciation Day, it’s that people really love an excuse to dig in and enjoy more FruChocs than usual. Even a few state premiers over that time have given it the official two thumbs up.

This year we asked ourselves how we could make it even bigger and better for the people of South Australia and honestly, it’s tough to top a day dedicated to eating FruChocs – unless it was also a public holiday! Because who doesn’t love a day off work almost as much as we all love FruChocs?

There’d be no having to answer the phone or deal with annoying colleagues, you could be solely focussed on the most important thing at hand – stuffing FruChocs in your mouth. So we’ve started a petition. Will it work? If enough people sign our petition, who knows? Stranger things have happened. But either way we think it’d be un-South Australian of us to not at least give it a shot. And un-South Australian of our fellow FruChocs lovers not to have a bit of fun by signing it.

If you’re a lover of chocolate, and in particular the chocolate-coated peach and apricot balls we all know and love, sign the petition to turn FruChoc Appreciation Day into a public holiday in SA.
