Here's how you can score one!

To celebrate 25 years of offering online shopping to customers, Coles is giving away 150,000 mud cakes to Australians who do their grocery shopping online.

The iconic cakes currently come in several flavours including chocolate, caramel, and white chocolate, and retail for $5.75.

In 1999 when the supermarket giant first launched online shopping, they only delivered to 23 postcodes in Melbourne. Fast forward 25 years and Coles Online now delivers to 96 percent of Australian households.

Coles General Manager of Online Network and Growth James Geddes said that the free mud cakes were the perfect way to say thank you to the millions of Australians who have shopped online with them over the years.

“As we celebrate this incredible milestone, we want to show our appreciation and say thanks to customers, and we’re delighted to be giving back to Aussies with discounts and offers – and free birthday cake to celebrate.”

Speaking of exciting discounts and offers, as part of the Coles 25th Birthday celebrations, numerous online specials will also be available.
