Says a Woolworths spokesperson: ‘The Lion King Ooshies Cases have been extremely popular and only available while stocks last.
‘Due to this demand, a number of stores may have already sold out. We encourage customers to speak to their local store manager to find out if they have any stock available.’
But don’t fear! New Idea Food has been investigating where you can still get your hands on an Ooshie, and there are still plenty of options.
We’ve been informed that some Woolworths in central Brisbane have cases available, as well as stores in southern Sydney, NSW’s Newcastle, eastern Melbourne, Victoria’s Geelong and central Perth.
Other Ooshie fans have also revealed that ‘scouring out smaller Woolworths, which aren’t as big as some stores’ is a good idea as they may have excess stock as there isn’t as much foot traffic.
Adds the insider: ‘If you have any friends or family in rural areas, maybe ask them to check their local Woolworths because those smaller stores might have a stash also.’
It’s also worth checking some of the closed ‘Buy, Swap, Sell’ Lion King Ooshie Facebook groups on Facebook, as some members may be willing to swap their cases for rare Ooshies you may have - as well point you in the direction of stores which may have stock.
