Adelaide Royal Show Wrap Up

Morish Nuts - Thursday, September 20, 2012

The Adelaide Royal Show is done and dusted, and to say it went off with a bang is a huge understatement! The weather was amazing; warm and sunny, just how we like it… and we had such a fantastic response from the crowd and were busier than ever. So busy in fact that we sold out of our most popular show bags on the first day! There was a bit of ‘behind the scenes’ scrambling to keep up with demand until the final day, our show bag sellers reported a significant amount of shoe wear and tear after the 9 days.

Where have all the show bags gone?

While we don’t have official attendance numbers yet, it was evident that this year was a cracker and the crowds were out in record numbers. We want to thank all our South Australian friends for their enormous amount of support… It is always fantastic to see hundreds of people enjoying their favourite Morish treats. It is moments like those that make us smile until our cheeks hurt.

And while that is a big enough reward in itself, we also have the exciting news that we won 1st place for the Best Stand in the Show Bag Pavilion! We have been the bridesmaid (and even the flower girl) for a couple of years, so finally getting first place really made this a show to remember.

The countdown for the Royal Perth show continues, along with our very exciting show bag unveiling (for those who have been good enough to avoid all of the show bag reviews floating around at the moment). Here is the second piece of the puzzle to keep you all guessing, until next time! :)

The Morish how-to guide for the Royal Adelaide Show

Morish Nuts - Monday, August 29, 2011
The Royal Adelaide Show is just a few days away, and just like you we're at the "so excited we can barely sleep" level of enthusiasm.

One of the reasons we're SUPER excited for this year's show is that we'll have our brand new Morish Tamari Almonds there, and show goers will be among the FIRST to try our newest savoury delight. Oven roasted Australian almonds bathed in tangy tamari sauce… If you're a fan of the Morish Savoury Nibbles, you'll definitely need to give this a try!

But before you head off to enjoy a week of show-time fun, we thought we'd use our expertise (we are annual show goers after all) and let you in on a few secrets to really get the most out of the show this year!

Tips for enjoying the best of the show;

1. Try as many rides as possible

The show only comes once a year, so you might as well go ahead and release all your adrenalin cravings at once with the many rides that you'll find at the show. If you don't know where to start, we suggest going for those with the best names (just like betting on horses come race day) - Rock 'n' Roll Matterhorn, Gravitron and another called the "Fungee Bungee" get our votes this year.

We're also interested in a brand new ride, the Disco O… We're imagining something that involves an endless playlist of 70s hits - groovy.

2. Freebies!

We know that one of the biggest highlights of going to the show each year is stocking up on freebies that generally come at you from left right and centre, so take advantage of this! Hint, hint, if you visit us at the Morish stand we have many delicious [free] samples to share with you :-)

3. Eat your hearts out

Who can resist all that show food - fairy floss, hot dogs, baked potatoes - and you'll definitely need it to give you that energy boost to get to everything you want to see. Although we find that regardless of the sugar intake, you always seem to end up completely exhausted at the end of the day…

4. It's all about strategy

You're going to the show. There are a million and one things you 'need' to see or do. Best way to tackle it? Prioritise. There's only so much sprinting-to-the-next-thing-you-see-that-looks-good before you end up dizzy with very sore feet.

And a small piece of advice? Aim to buy the bulk of your show bags on the way out to avoid becoming a pack horse (PS: kids, this is not what mum is at the show for).

5. Don't get lost

Might be a simple tip, but a good one. Don't spend half your day searching for your lost cousin, because even though you made him wear the red hat and wait by the petting zoo, there's probably about a thousand others who have ingeniously carried out the same "nobody else will think of this" idea.

It's much better to stick to the "safety in numbers" idea.

6. Buy your Morish show bag

It's not every day you get to see us, so make sure you stock up and get your Morish fix while you can! We'll be back with your favourite show bags, like the Mums & Dads Show Bag ($20) and Morish Jumbo Show Bag ($40). Plus our new Macadamia Show Bag ($35)! Don't forget you can order online when your stocks get low!

Enjoy the show, we'll see you there!
