Saw these new baked beans flavours at Woolworths this afternoon. Apparently they have been on sale for a month.

Brandbank has launched the first campaign and range for its new fashion brand called Unison. The launch comes after the retail group exited its Australian license contract with French Connection, with the core transition phase now finalised.

The company has also refitted 11 standalone stores, 48 David Jones concessions and 57 Myer concessions from French Connection to Unison and launched a new website.

The Unison launch campaign features singer and songwriter Amy Shark, actor Josh Heuston, actor and model Maddison Brown, professional football player Josh Cavallo, and model and activist Zinnia Kumar.

Lolly lovers have been left outraged after Allen’s confirmed a major change to some of the nation’s favourite sweet treats.

The confectionary company confirmed it would halt production of individual bags of Red Ripperz, Milkos and Sherbies – meaning shoppers could no longer enjoy those lollies how they used to.

BUT Misleading headlines

Nestle, who owns Allen’s, has responded to the concerns, clarifying the halt in production was only temporary.

“We can confirm that individual bags of Allen’s Sherbies, Red Ripperz Sticks, and Milkos have not been discontinued but are temporarily paused as we finalise our new production facility at our Allen’s factory in Broadford, Victoria,” a spokesperson told

Johnson&Johnson introduced a new logo - the first since the company was founded back in the 1800s.

From what I’ve read this is just at the corporate level and products like Band Aid will still feature the original.



I know we were talking about it a few months back, but I spotted the new Pepsi livery in my local grocery store in Maryland over the weekend. Unfortunately I didn’t get the chance to take a photo, but I’m sure I’ll be back soon. I’ll try later in the week.


What are they doing with the Pepsi Max branding in Australia? I would say the Max logo is almost as well know as the Pepsi logo here.

I’ve been wondering what these were all about?! What have I missed?

Interestingly enough, there were fewer bottles and cans with the new Pepsi logo on the shelves compared to when I first noticed at the start of the week.


Hmm, I’d say these are imported? I noticed it has a fluid ounce reading and no health star rating indicator on the front either.

Hard to tell if they’ll retire the Pepsi Max branding, but that said, the new branding looks very nice and lively.
