Arnott's Range

Aussie biscuit-geniuses have LIFTED the confectionery game

Arnott’s has launched a range of biscuit chocolate-y products and even though one of them is ‘Jatz’ flavoured, we’re cheering.

Australia’s favourite classic biscuits have been re-imagined by the brilliant biscuit-eers, with five classic flavours taking on more of a chocolate block/bar role.

So yeah – they’re chocolate blocks, but biscuit flavoured! Is this the best of both worlds, or what?!

These bad boys will actually hit the shelves next week, so if you can save a few dollars over the Easter long weekend, you can stock up from Tuesday.

The five flavours (drum roll) are Iced Vovo, Scotch Finger, Wagon Wheel, Ginger Nut and Jatz.

While we’re a bit hesitant over the Jatz flavour… we’re so ready.

Just to give you an idea of how totally amazing this is, Arnott’s are calling it their ‘biggest product launch in the brand’s history’.

Their media release was also appropriately titled: ‘Project Awesome’.

So get, ready.

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

12 Krispy Kreme doughnuts for $12

Good morning, happy Friday, here’s to the weekend!

Krispy Kreme recognises how sweet it is to get to the end of the working week, and they’ve made it even sweeter.

Today only – Friday April 12 – Krispy Kreme stores across Australia are selling 12 original glaze doughnuts for $12!

A DOLLAR A DOUGHNUT!!!

Imagine walking into work with a dozen doughnuts today… you’d be the most popular person in the building!

…Or the most hated if you declare you plan on eating them all yourself. (devil face)

A dozen original glaze doughnuts would usually set you back $19.95, so yeah, you’re really only saving less than $7.

But a bargain is a bargain, and if you can’t eat 12 doughnuts on a Friday then what are we living for?

Alright, we’ll quit the drama.

Here’s where you can grab your doughnuts across the country.

• Offer redeemable at all Krispy Kreme stores in NSW, QLD, VIC and WA only.

• Not redeemable at 7-Eleven, BP Travel Centres, Jesters Pies or at any other wholesale locations.

• Not redeemable in SA or NT (sorry guys…)

Paid opportunity to eat candy from all over the world

The World’s Sweetest Internship is back on the job market for 2019 – and man, oh man… get ready.

Mars Wrigley Confectionery – the Gods responsible for candy favourites such as Snickers, Twix, M&Ms, Mars Bars, Starburst, Hubba Bubba, and soooo many more – are looking to hire an intern who will….

Get to eat candy all the time!

Seriously, one of the key responsibilities is ‘taste and develop a deep appreciation for confectionery products from around the world’, like we don’t already have a deep appreciation for candy. Come on guys.

Also – there are heaps of other ACTUAL benefits, like getting clued in on the manufacturing and production process, and helping out with events and activations to do with the candy community or something… okay, we blacked out a bit during this part.

HOWEVER – The World’s Sweetest Internship is fully paid, with a super-sweet signing bonus of ONE YEAR’S WORTH OF CANDY.

Before you all flock to apply, note that it is stationed at the Goose Island global headquarters in Chicago, you have to be at least 21 years of age, and be able to ‘demonstrate the will power to write about and photograph candy without eating it before the work is complete’…

So – we’re out.
