National research released this month shows that in the last year, Australians have bought more savoury biscuits than the weight of over one thousand Sydney Harbour Bridges combined – 59 million tonnes to be exact!
Over the past 12 months, 83.6 per cent of Aussie households purchased Arnott’s savoury biscuits and every-day Australia consumes:
- 230,000 packs of Shapes
- 100,000 packs of Jatz
- 43,000 packs of Vita-Weat
It’s therefore no surprise that there are endless traditions and memories linked to serving and sharing crackers.
They are a part of the quintessential Australian lifestyle, passed down through family generations and shared between groups of friends.
But Arnott’s believes there are plenty of unique and lesser-known Shapes-eating rituals and moments across the nation yet to be uncovered.
Search For Australia’s Unique Cracker Rituals
To celebrate Australia’s undeniable love of crackers, especially Shapes, Arnott’s launched its national #whatacracker campaign; calling on all savoury biscuit-lovers far and wide to share how they enjoy Arnott’s Shapes on the Arnott’s Shapes Facebook Page.
The top ten entries will win a year’s supply* of their favourite Arnott’s Shapes flavour.
When it comes to crackers, we know that Aussies believe sharing and connecting with others is important.
When serving plain or savoury crackers or salty snacks, 54 per cent of Aussies feel that it is important that they are good to share, so maybe your ultimate cracker ritual involves a bestie or family member.
Live Mix ‘N Match Shapes Pop-Up
The #whatacracker campaign will also come to life at the end of this month when a giant Shapes box takes residence at the iconic Sydney Overseas Passenger Terminal on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 June, allowing visitors to enter and create their very own personalised selection of Arnott’s Shapes.
Visitors can mix n’ match their own combination of Arnott’s Shapes flavours and snap their #whatacracker moment against the backdrop of the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge.
So, get crack-er-ing!
Entries close 30 June 2018.
For more information on how to enter the competition, visit the Arnott’s Shapes Facebook page.
The winner will be announced via Arnott’s Shapes Facebook on the 6 July 2018.
Years supply equates to 52 family size boxes.
