Child shocked screaming

PSST! There’s rumours this VERY popular chocolate is making a comeback…

Remember Caramilk? The deliciously sweet caramel flavoured white chocolate we were blessed with last year only to have it taken away from us…

Well, in news that will be sure to make your day, week, month, year – it appears the chocolate gods have answered our prayers, with rumours Caramilk is set to return to supermarket shelves.

According to Facebook page The Grocery Geek, Cadbury will be relaunching the heavenly choccie block either late this month or early next month!!!!!!!

“It is strongly rumoured that Cadbury is re-releasing its very popular Caramilk later this month…. stay tuned! – thanks to ‘S’ for the heads-up” they wrote alongside a photo of the popular caramel chocolate.

It’s sparked huge conversation online, with hundreds of people expressing their excitement.

“Definitely true I ordered a fair bit of stock for my shop today. Will be on special for $2.40 a block early September At all IGA’s,” one person commented on the Facebook post.

“Looks like the crazy is gonna start again” wrote another.

A spokesperson for Cadbury Australia did not confirm or deny the reports when asked about the rumours.

But we have the following to say on this very important matter:

Drone

Groceries to be delivered by drone to Qld homes

Is it a bird, is it a plane? No… it’s a loaf of bread and carton of milk.

That will soon be the reality for Queenslanders with Google set to launch its new drone delivery service this September.

Logan has been revealed as the first city to receive the innovative delivery service, with Wing teaming up with a range of businesses in the suburb to deliver a range of items such as fresh bread, hot coffee, non-prescription drugs and other food items directly to homes within minutes by simply using a mobile app.

Wing said they chose the suburb as it’s one of Australia’s fastest growing communities and home to the eighth largest population in the country.

“We also believe our air delivery service can help reduce the traffic congestion and air pollution that often accompany such growth,” Wing said.

A similar service has already been rolled out in Canberra and is proving to be a huge success.

“One of the things we’ve learned from our first several thousand deliveries in Australia is that families with young children seem to particularly enjoy our service,” the company said.

“They tell us the convenience and ease of air delivery saves them having to bundle the kids up in the car to drive to the shops. Logan has a booming population of young families, and we’re excited to see if they find drone delivery as beneficial as other Australian parents.”

It’s understood Queensland’s commitment to drones was also a big selling point for the service.

“Queensland is a natural choice because the State is at the forefront of drone technology leadership,” Wing said.

“The Government recently released the Queensland Drone Strategy, and the State hosts the annual World of Drones Congress, which brings together industry and academic thought leaders from around the world.”

Innovation Minister Kate Jones said the new service would also create jobs for drone pilots in Queensland.

“We’re working with the world leaders in drone technology to create jobs for Queenslanders,” she said.

“That’s why we’re partnering with Wing today to make sure that we lead the way when it comes to capitalising on the opportunities provided by technological advancements in drone technology.

Ms Jones said that during a trade mission to the United States in June, the Minister met with Wing to explore the opportunities in Queensland.

“Building partnerships with industry and trade leaders is a key part of our Advance Queensland innovation strategy – to grow and diversify our economy,” she said.

“Whether you’re a parent who forgot to pick up fresh bread for your kids school lunches, or you simply want to order your weekend coffee without having to drive to the shops, Wing is teaming up with local Logan businesses to give customers the opportunity to have a range of goods delivered in a handful of minutes.”

Deliveries of items up to 1.5kg are expected to be made in Logan later this year.

New ‘market-style’ Coles set to open its doors on the Gold Coast today

Residents in the booming northern Gold Coast suburb of Ormeau will have a brand new supermarket to do their grocery shopping, with the opening of Coles at Ormeau Village today!

The new market-style supermarket is set to open its doors to the public for the very first time at 8am, with a special ribbon-cutting ceremony and speeches.

The store, located at the popular Ormeau Village Shopping Centre, will create 44 new local jobs on the Gold Coast, with more than 20 of the new recruits extra excited to begin their first job ever.

The supermarket is part of Coles’ investment of more than $120 million across the Gold Coast since 2016, including new and refurbished supermarkets at Australia Fair, Mudgeeraba, Southport Park, Coomera City Centre, Coomera Westfield, Pimpama and most recently, Palm Beach.

Coles Ormeau Village Store Manager Andrew Holmes says he is looking forward to officially opening the doors and welcoming the local community into the store.

“There has been an incredible amount of growth in infrastructure on the Gold Coast over the last few years, and we’re excited to be able to offer local shoppers yet another modern and convenient shopping destination with the opening of our new store at Ormeau. Our market-style fresh produce department will be a real focal point of the supermarket, offering customers a large
range of quality produce,” he said.

“We’re also delighted to contribute to the rapid economic growth in the region with the creation of so many new local jobs — many of which will see young team members entering the workforce for the first time.”

The celebrations are set to continue well into the weekend, with a two-day Food Festival on Saturday, 20 and Sunday, 21 July from 10am to 2pm, featuring cooking demonstrations by last year’s MKR champions Alex and Emily, and appearances by professional racing driver Jamie Whincup and DJ Cutloose.

The Apple Pie McFlurry returns to the Maccas menu!

Oh McDonalds, oh Maccas, oh me oh my… HOW do you keep finding direct routes to my aorta valve?

Straight through the stomach, straight through my mouth, straight through my sky-rocketing blood-sugar levels.

I don’t mind, I really don’t, I’ll love you forever.

Especially after hearing about the return of the Apple Pie McFlurry. BE STILL MY BEATING HEART.

There’s not enough poetry in the world to describe my love of a) the McFlurry, and b) the Apple Pie.

It makes absolute sense to marry the two in unison forever on your glorious menu.

Due to a partnership with Uber Eats, Maccas lovers can only get the delicious dessert on Uber Eats until July 9.

But then after that (3 days and counting, y’all), it’s FREE reign – meaning the Maccas drive through is my new revolving door.

“Apple Pie McFluz, no wuz” they’ll tell me. And I’ll rejoice, I really will.

PRO TIP: swap out the caramel for chocolate fudge topping and add it three times over. Pools of drool, I promise.
