When passing express through some stations on a Gold Coast bound service, there was a large sign at a group of shops with the Foodtown Logo. Can't remember which station it was but I think it was between Coopers Plains and Loganlea. I was creaming my jeans :P

My memory may be a bit frizzy, but I believe they were 300mL botles.

The thin cans are 300mL .
The "mini cokes" sold at the bakery are glass bottles.

Not to mention

250ml cans - sold at Kmart

And Zac, you wouldn't sell 300ml PET cokes, as they aren't for retail sale, they are only available in multipacks and can't be resold.

There's also american 330ml coke.

There was the bried 440ml coke that coles was selling, the big cans

yes but 250ml cans come in two types. The thin ones in 6 packs BIG W and woolies sell, and the small normal width 250ml cans Kmart sells and Qantas serves.

And one for you all for Easter

I am trying to find some Purity or Roelf Vos ad's (if they existed), but hard to track down!

I also found a Coles Ad with everyone's favourite, Lisa McCune!

After my long search, I finally found 50gm samboy, salt and vinegar, barbeque and atomic tomato samboys at campbells cash & carry.

Also found were new lines like red mars, blueberry extra, new dark exlipse - forget the proper name, i think its just a stronger spearmint/peppermint flavour.

I think thats all they had that was new.

IMPORTANT SNACK-RELATED ANNOUNCEMENT

I have just been informed that.. Arnotts Salt and Vinegar French Fries, the delicious potato-based snack beloved by all, ARE BACK.

If anyone has spotted them in their local woolies/coles, let us know..

No, they're not. I bought a pack this arvo and they are similar in taste to wintergreen tic tacs (not sold in aus). They kinda taste like mouthwash to be honest.

I'm hearing that Dick Smith Power House will be rebranded as simply 'Dick Smith' in the near future.

The 'Tandy' brand will also disappear. Profitable stores will be rebranded as Dick Smith, non-viable stores will be closed.

Tuggeranong A-Mart is turning into a Rebel Sport, and the City store is likely to as well.

City A-Mart has had its outside signage removed, but no Rebel Signs are up as of last Friday.

Not sure about Tuggeranong

Edit: Just realised we won't get AMart ads on tv anymore!

It really annoys me that Belconnen doesn't have self-serve. They have 8 express (?) checkouts but whenever I go there only 2 are open.
Good news everyone, Woolworths Belconnen (1139) has replaced half of its express checkouts with self-serve checkouts.

Woolworths have released a toy truck, a Mercedes Benz Actros semi with new logos (Green and White Trailer). No price around, but all the other toys on the stand were $30. It is quite a large model.
