Coles shoppers would be forgiven for thinking that all their Christmases had come at once — and not just because the supermarket giant has already dropped their festive goodies a staggering four months before the big day.

To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of their Big Red Hand specials — and the insanely catchy ‘Down Downs’ jingle — the store is gifting customers with even more savings across 190 products.

Among them is one pandemic stockpile essential that flew off the shelves earlier this year: a 20-pack of toilet paper by Quilton which is ‘down down’ to just $10.

After having to enforce a one-pack per person to cope with demand earlier this year, a Coles spokesperson has confirmed to Yahoo Lifestyle that there are currently “no purchase limits on toilet paper”.

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - JULY 8, 2020: As Melbourne shuts down for a second time, empty fruit and vegetable shelves become common in Australian supermarkets. This is due to the rapid rises in cases of Coronavirus or COVID-19.

Elsewhere, Coles has slashed prices on pantry, fridge and laundry staples such as:

Moro Olive Oil 1L for $12

Fab Laundry Powder 2kg for $7

Nescafe Blend 42 250g for $10.75

Bega Peanut Butter 780g for $6.50

Uncle Toby’s Cheerio’s cereal for $5

Mainland Dairy Buttersoft Pure Butter for $6.25

Over the last decade, the home of the Big Red Hand estimates it’s delivered a cumulative price deflation of 10 per cent which is not bad considering the average Aussie household currently spends just over $12k a year on groceries.
