Foodland Charity Showbag $5 - SA only - Retail Value $40plus

7 September 2009

Drake Foodlands in SA have just released their annual charity showbag. For only $5 (all of which goes to the following charities: Flinders Medical Centre, Phoenix and RDNS)

I just went down and bought a couple and this is what I got in one bag. (some products vary between stores)

Mortein Fly Control Stickets
4 pack Corn Thins
25g pk Grain Waves
Nyal Cold and Flu Effervescant Tablets (2 packs of 20 tabs)
Lucky Dogs 12 pk meaty sticks
SuperMax Disposable Razor
Can Sprite Zero
52g pack Junior Mints
140g tub Goulburn Valley Peach in Syrup
20 g Fruit Flakes
28 g Clean And Clear Facial Scrub
25g Mamee Noodle Snack
40g box Uncle Tobys PLus Omega Lift Cereal
Drake Ruler
30ml Armorall Wash and Wax
small jols fruit pastilles
small Beerenberg Strawberry Jam
15g Zombie Chews

obviously, this won't be a fabulous deal for everyone, but at $5, and with all the money going to charity, no one is really going to lose on this one.

    I'm a sucker for these sample bags lol.

    Me too. this is much better value than the rubbish bags you get at the Royal Show nowadays. It's very exciting to open the bags up and see what you get. Kids are enjoying the fruit flakes right now.

    I love this bag, Rebekah where did you buy yours from?, because I have noticed Newton and Clovercret have different things in their bags. My bag from Clovercrest has a few of the same like the nyal cold tablets, sprite zero (200ml or 375ml), the fly stuff, noodles, rice crackers and the razor, but the rest is different... a voucher for golden picklets (cinnamon and sugar) but i actually picked up the wrong ones and got the plain...now i have to go back and get another bag a small snickers bar a bryon bay cookie jelly belly jelly beans mcovy chips shortbread biscuits mentos blast gum neutrogena oil free scrub zazi chewing gum 140g box of lavosh white magic eraser nappy rash cream (cant remember which bag) nescafe coffe sample I think the clovercrest bag is better value as the picklets retail for $3.50

    I got mine from Ascot Park Foodland on Marion Road. I suspect that there are core items from donating parties and other bits depend on the store and what excess items they have. I guess each bag has value for different people.. the doggy snacks in ours were worth thr $5 I paid.. and the dog loved them.. This is the third year I've gotten these bags. First year was the best. Had those glade air fresheners (not just a refill), and plenty of other great stuff

    Are these available in Queensland?
  • Rebekah76
    don't know about Queensland. Might be worth asking your local Drake Foodland Only in Drake stores, so if the store is a Romeo Foodland, or IGA Foodland, you prob won't get them. If the store is branded IGA/Drakes, then they should be there Here's a list of SA metro stores from their website: Aberfoyle Park Foodland Angle Vale Foodland Ascot Park Foodland Blackwood Foodland Castle Plaza Foodland Clovercrest Foodland Drake Supermarket Glenunga Elizabeth Park Foodland Findon Foodland Fulham Gardens Foodland Gawler Foodland Golden Grove Village Foodland Grange Foodland Hallett Cove Foodland Newton Foodland North Haven Foodland Para Hills Foodland Para Vista Foodland Parafield Gardens Foodland Royal Park Foodland Salisbury North Foodland Seaford Foodland Semaphore Foodland Sunnybrook Foodland Surrey Downs Foodland Torrensville Foodland Walkley Heights Foodland West Beach Foodland I guess they may also be available in regional stores, but not sure.

    so - Melissanj - you might have to go to a different store as Pasadena isn't on the list

What do you think?
