Two South Australian icons unite to delight


THE PERFECT WINTER WARMER IS BACK: The CIBO Espresso – FruChoc Hot Chocolate

With winter around the corner, two state icons, CIBO Espresso and Menz FruChocs have teamed up once again to reintroduce the CIBO Espresso – FruChoc Hot Chocolate. Following its limited run in Winter 2018, the two local companies felt South Aussies deserved a chance to enjoy this treat again.

The CIBO Espresso – FruChoc Hot Chocolate will be served in stores across South Australia from Thursday 21st May – just as temperatures cool and winter nears. The drink is a delicious traditional style Italian hot chocolate, infused with the apricot flavour of a Menz FruChoc, a perfect combination to excite those craving a hot drink with an extra hint of indulgence.

Phil Sims, CEO of Robern Menz, producer of Menz FruChocs comments, “The CIBO Espresso – FruChoc Hot Chocolate was introduced in 2018 to commemorate FruChoc Appreciation Day and we’ve seen demand for its return ever since. We love working in partnership with other local brands, and this flavour combination is bound to be a hit over the colder winter months, particularly as restrictions ease and South Aussies can venture out to enjoy a hot drink from their favourite CIBO café.”

The CIBO Espresso – FruChoc Hot Chocolate will be available in all CIBO Espresso stores across South Australia from Thursday 21st May for a limited time at $4.50 for a regular size.
