Discover our local foods

What is fritz? A frog cake? Local adults will be well aware, but students can discover these fun local Adelaide foods and the stories behind them on a one-hour walk down Rundle Mall and Adelaide Arcade. This is a shortened version of our popular food tour The F Factor, and stories here focus on the English, German and French influences on iconic local produce.

On the day samples will include:

  • Bung fritz
  • Haigh’s chocolate
  • Balfours mini frog cake
  • Charlesworth Nuts almond sample

Students will also receive a packet of Fruchocs and a Haigh’s chocolate frog to take home.

Students are encouraged to engage through taking photos, asking and answering questions, and taking part in a quiz along the route.
