The news that the Royal Adelaide Show would not be going ahead again in 2021 was a bit of a blow to families across Adelaide who had been looking forward to the state’s longest-running event.

But with COVID once again stuffing up all of our plans, it was barely a surprise that the pin was pulled on this year’s event.

After all, a Royal Adelaide Show with only 10,000 people through the gates each day and a severe lack of interstate attractions would have made for a very slimmed down Show.

But the cancellation does not mean that we’re going to have to go without our beloved showbags. More to the point, we won’t have to go without our Fruchocs showbags.

Because while other states can get excited over their Bertie Beetles, we know that the Fruchocs showbag is BY FAR the most exciting thing to take home from Wayville every year.

The online Showbag Stand is currently being set up online, with the online store’s showbags also set to be stocked in Robern Menz retail outlets across Adelaide.

Last year, OTR and showbag sellers teamed up to make a selection of showbags available at servos across the city as well as via online stores. We’re thinking this will look similar…but with Fruchocs!


We’ll let you know when the online store is launched and you can get your hands on a showbag of apricot/dark choc goodness!
