COLES has confirmed that the Little Shop madness that took the country through the storm is about to come back with five new festive collections in time for Christmas.
A spokesman for the supermarket giant told news.com.au that the Christmas collection includes coin pies, a platter, a bons bon, a sweet ginger biscuit, and a sweet ginger ice cream.
"Customers will receive a free Christmas mini card that can be collected for every 30 dollars they spend in the store on December 7," the spokesman said.
"There will also be a limited number of special Christmas collecting cases for $ 4 storage."
The confirmation followed an email that was broadcast on social media, which revealed that this popular campaign has come up again.
The note, which was shared on Facebook's Little Shop swap groups, said collections cramps will come back for a special Christmas edition next week.

"We have some BIG news, the team! Little Shop is coming back for Christmas!" Starts the memory.
"On Friday, December 7, for every 30 dollars spent at Coles and Coles supermarkets, customers can collect a FREE MINI COLLECTIVE – with a total of 5 minis to collect.
"Little Shop Christmas Edition will delight customers this festive season!"

Coles launched 30 mini-toys for the most popular food, including Weet Bix, Vegemite and Nutella, during the Little Shop campaign launched in July this year.
Buyers got a free toy every 30 dollars spent in the store, and before it became a popular trend, some items being sold online for astronomical prices, parents trying to collect the whole collection for their children.
Facebook popular groups have been so popular about changing toys that have begun to appear on social media, and trading days have been held in some Coles stores.
Last month, Coles also reported a comparable 5.1 percent sales growth in the first quarter of the financial year following the Little Shop campaign.
Sales of major supermarkets for the 13 weeks from June 25 to September 23 rose 5.8 percent to $ 7.66 billion. Including liqueur and convenience, Coles' total sales rose 5 percent to $ 9.84 billion.
However, it also triggered controversies at the time about the impact of toys on the environment – especially because Coles and Woolies banned disposable free plastic bags even before the launch of the campaign.
And earlier this month, an Aussie woman said she found a Coles Mini Shop toy washed on a beach in Bali, although she could not prove if she traveled to Indonesia by the ocean or simply lost a tourist.
Elapsed email also comes hot by the Woolworths rival campaign "Christmas Pop-Outs," featuring 12 built-in cardboard characters.
Coles has previously indicated that the Little Shop campaign will return in 2019.
