South Australian chocolatiers Robern Menz have invented 1.5metre-long Christmas crackers to celebrate the festive season with an ode to social distancing in 2020.
The crackers are more than six times the size of a regular bonbon and contain 3.5kilos of delicious FruChocs chocolate, which is developed by the Menz manufacturers.
FruChocs designed the Christmas crackers to meet Covid-19 safety standards to be able to safely share their goodies while remaining social distanced in the upcoming holiday season.

‘From quarantine, face masks and social distancing to unemployment, home school and toilet paper shortages; 2020 threw us some challenges,’ FruChocs CEO Phil Sims said.
‘Covid-19 has even impacted this festive season and left many Aussies separated from loved ones and celebrating Christmas traditions a little differently.
‘We wanted to bring a smile and a little fun to make sure Christmas is still one of the most wonderful times of the year, even if Australians have to find new ways of celebrating.
‘Our 1.5-metre-long FruChocs-filled Christmas crackers are sure to scatter the Christmas cheer.’
FruChocs are giving Australians the chance to win and share one of the five limited edition bonbons.
Entrants must go to the FruChocs Facebook page and tag a friend from interstate who they would like to share one of the unique crackers with.

The 1.5metre-long Christmas Crackers also come with FruChocs socks and a Mr FruChocs plush toy.
The Christmas promo coincides with FruChocs becoming nationally available in Coles Express stores across the country.
South Australian Premier Steven Marshall said the increased distribution was great news for local jobs and the state economy.
