No more long lines – grab your favourite Ekka showbags from your local IGA

Listen up, confectionary lovers! Despite the cancellation of the this year's Ekka, we have been blessed with some very sweet news that is sure to cheer up kids and kids-at-heart. Bringing the fun fair to you, Bensons Showbags has teamed up with IGA, so we can now get our hot little hands on a huge range of iconic confectionary and novelty showbags without a trip to the showgrounds. Curly Wurlys, here we come!


Available for a limited time only, Bensons Showbags will be stocked on the shelves of over 200 selected IGA stores across Queensland and Northern New South Wales as part of the Showbags Bonanza Sale. Sweeth tooths can shop a massive range of confectionary heroes including the likes of Dairy Milk, Caramello Koala, Curly Wurly, Chupa Chups, Zappo and the sour-taste explosion that are Warheads. There are also showbags featuring Harry Potter, Hot Wheels, Bluey, Pokémon and many more Ekka favourites available to purchase. The jam-packed catalogue includes a total of 20 themed showbags priced at $5, $10 or $30 – now that’s what you call a bargain!

Plus, if you can’t find the showbag you’re after at IGA, all you have to do is hop on to Showbags.com.au to shops its huge range of carnival confectionary, novelty packs and toys.
