FOOD Lover’s Market at the Colony
Centre in Hillcrest said goodbye to the Goodness Gang on Saturday at an exciting farewell at the store.

The loveable mascots spent the morning with shoppers at Food Lover’s and had a dance-off at noon.

They will be journeying back to Fruit-
landia, and thanked the community for their support over the past few months.

Food Lover’s Hillcrest owner Gilbert Rocha said: “The Goodness Gang, the cutest heroes of healthy eating and nutrition, was launched in August­.

“The characters include Sally Straw-
berry, Benny Banana, Betty Broccoli, Anna Aubergine, Charlie Carrot, Pamela Pear
and Gary Garlic.

“These cute high-quality plush toys each came with their own message about the benefits of healthy eating.

“It was an exciting concept and encouraged children to eat and stay healthy.”
