Shoprite - Dec 7th 2017, 10:05
Checkers’ Limited Edition Luxury Fruit and Nut Topped Christmas Cake was voted the best and most decadent Christmas cake in South Africa in the latest Sunday Times Food Awards.
An independent panel consisting of 42 enthusiastic Sunday Times readers put a selection of ready-made Christmas cakes from various retailers to the test in a blind tasting, resulting in Checkers taking the first place with its locally baked Christmas cake – with real butter, brandy, dark chocolate bits and citrus peel.
The Christmas cakes were rated on price, appearance, taste, and fruitiness.
So head out to your nearest Checkers to round off your festive feast and indulge in one of the decadent Christmas cakes from the exclusive Limited Edition range – the only Christmas cakes approved by SA’s top chefs.Shoprite

Picture the situation: you're on the phone with customer support. You speak to a representative who can't help you. Your call gets forwarded to another agent. So you start your story over from the beginning and explain what you need to get out of the call. They can begin a process but will really need another team to jump in to complete. Another agent takes up your case and again you explain your situation as well as a summary of the two previous calls.
