Although Ekka’s bright lights won’t shine this year, that doesn’t mean we can’t get a dose of carnival-fun in the form of a Bertie Beetle showbag! To help us out, Showbag Shop is hawking seven different Bertie Beetle showbags and bundle packs including a huge haul of 350 Bertie Beetles that will definitely cure a case of the munchies. For those after a dose of nostalgia, there is even a Bertie Beetle Super Fan retro bundle complete with limited-edition camp mugs, socks and a retro tin, all labelled with the original 1960s Bertie Beetle logo.
If you’re feeling lucky (well are you, punk?) Showbag Shop has also launched a Bertie Beetle baking competition, with the winner collecting a huge prize of 1000 Bertie Beetles! To enter, all you have to do is bake something Bertie Beetle-inspired and upload a pic to Instagram or Facebook before Sunday August 16 and share something about yourself and what you’ve baked in the caption then tag @bertiebeetleshowbags and use the hashtag #bertiebakingcomp. Don’t worry if your cake is a total fail, there’s even a category for the worst-made creation – now that sounds like something we could win.
