Medlow Confectionery & FruChocs Showcase – Apr 2012

Looking for a fun free activity for the kids these school holidays?

Bunny hop into the Medlow Confectionery & FruChocs Showcase



The April Easter School holidays are nearly here, which means the kids’ favourite saying “I’m bored and I want a treat” are only just around the corner.  So why not beat them at their own game and get into the holiday spirit and check out The Medlow Confectionery & FruChocs Showcase! It’s a cost effective way to put a smile on their face!

Entry to the showcase is absolutely free and is sure to entertain not only children but adults too! Experience an interactive attraction showing working confectionery machinery. Highlights include witnessing the chocolate coating machine in action each day between noon & 3.30pm – as sweets are coated in delicious creamy milk chocolate on the ‘chocolate enrober’ machine. There are vintage confectionery machines on display including the original Crown Mint machine (imported from England in 1892), the cello wrapping machine & the pan coating machine. Kids can set each of these machines in motion with just the push of a button!

While you are there you can also check out the 100 plus products stocked in store! Including a range of products sold exclusively through the outlet including the new Menz Mini FruChocs.

Better still, if you schedule your visit for a Friday (N.B. shut on Good Friday) you can pick up your Giant FruChocs – or any other Menz FruChocs product – at a 10% discount, as part of the company’s ‘FruChoc Friday’ promotion. Both Robern Menz (Glynde outlet) and Medlow Confectionery & FruChocs Showcase (McLaren Vale outlet) stock the full range of Menz FruChocs products including traditional Milk Chocolate FruChocs, Dark Chocolate FruChocs, 5-Fruit FruChocs and not forgetting the super fun Giant and Mini versions!

See the Robern Menz website for their full range. We also love the cover photo on their Facebook page – so SA!

So – grab the kids and head to either factory outlet these school holidays – either on a Friday to make the most of the ‘FruChoc Friday’ specials – or any day you or the kids feel a confectionery craving coming on! It’s great to support an SA manufacturing company.
