Let’s face it, childhood can be so much fun, especially when our kids say the darndest things (and get in all sorts of pickles along the way).  

To celebrate parenthood, the craziness, the fun and of course the mess, we’re excited to launch PHASE 1 of our Pure Gold Moments Giveaway.

You might recall we took a pretty memorable trip to meet the Pure Gold Pineapple farmers last month and busted a few pineapple myths while we were there. In case you missed it, here’s our top myths (and take note as you’ll need to know them!)

FACT 1: Pineapples are NOT only a summer fruit! Pineapples sold without a crown are NOT second quality, they are the PURE GOLD variety which are the PERFECT WINTER FRUIT – beautiful and sweet ALL YEAR ROUND!

FACT 2: It takes two years to grow a pineapple. YEP! From planting to harvest, you can expect to wait around 24 months for these babies to be big enough and ripe enough to eat!

FACT 3: Pineapples are ripest on the day they are picked.  The farmer picks it at it’s prime so from then on the pine is only going to deteriorate. Don’t let it sit in your fruit bowl waiting for the colour to change – EAT IT NOW!

FACT 4: Once cut, pineapples will last for two weeks in an air-tight container in the fridge! That is, if they last that long! So cut them up, pop them in the fridge and dish them up to the kids next time they’re looking for something sweet to eat!

Pure Gold Pineapples are sold in ALDI, Woolworths, Coles, Harris Farm, IGA and most local green grocers.

  1. Would absolutely love to win to just have that alone time away from my 6 kids.. Just some me time that I rarely if not never get to have.

  2. Donna Bennett Reply

    It would be wonderful to getaway and have some time out and be able to recharge and refocus. After an amazing pamper session I am sure I’d be left feeling ‘As good as gold”!

  3. Paula Harris Reply

    I’d love to win a golden getaway for a few hours just to spoil myself

  4. Belinda Harbron Reply

    Just to close my eyes for 5 mins and relax would be amazing. My husband works away so it’s just me at home with my 1 year old. I also work as a beauty therapist so it’s always me pampering someone else.

  5. 78DaysofSummer Reply

    I would love this pamper session as part of my self-healing process for 2016. Thanks for the chance! MC

  6. Samara Cassidy Reply

    As a mum, wife, daughter, sister, friend I rarely put myself first. To win a pamper session for me would be lovely to give me some ME time!

  7. Kerry dunn Reply

    I would love to win this. My kids have always come first but I need some me time.

  8. Bec D'owney Reply

    3 weeks from giving birth, my employers want to sack me and my husband has just got his redundancy letter too. I think….. I need some de-stress time just for me!

  9. Why not? Some alone time, time to catch our thoughts and draw our breath. To dream and relax in style and comfort.

  10. Juanita Munro Reply

    You know, As a full time mum working part time to scrape by, Any bit of ‘me time’ is relax time, Being pampered is a treat 🙂

  11. its my Birthday this month and I am feeling run down and lethargic I need some pampering

  12. Andieharrie Reply

    full time work and family
    doesn’t leave much time for me
    being pampered for a golden moment or two
    is what this girl needs and deserves to do

  13. Shu-Ching Chang Reply

    As a mum with two disabled kids, I really don’t have extra money to do pamper indulging experience. It is a great prize to bring back my youthful face and some “me” time. I love it.

  14. shelbyward Reply

    My position was made redundant a couple of months ago. Now I’m looking after my kids full time. They come first, not me. That’s okay but some pampering would be amazing!

  15. Nikki Cashion Reply

    I lost my cat to kidney failure two days ago this would be a nice pick me up.

  16. Michelle Green Reply

    I’ve been slogging away painting our house and cleaning top to bottom in readiness for our house to be put on the market. My muscles are sore, my hands are dry and I could totally enjoy a good pampering right now!

  17. Shu-Ching Chang Reply

    It is a great prize to do my pineapple dancing after indulging pampering experience. Thank you.

  18. Shu-Ching Chang Reply

    Lovely prize for Pure Gold Moment everyone. Thank you.

  19. What a treat a pamper session would be for my tired, aging body!

  20. Regine Miriklis Reply

    I’ve got a 6 month old baby so would love a massage to relax my tired muscles and some pampering.

  21. I have never had a pamper and would appreciate this so much with the last 8 years raising kids and working I’m always on the go and never have enough me time to even trim my nails.

  22. justinedrake Reply

    A pamper session would be great,
    maybe the can remove some of these lines from my face,
    and give me some of my own space!

  23. A pamper session for mum to put up her feet, relax and unwind, what a treat, this would be the perfect gift, it would certainly better than working the nigh shift!

  24. A pamper session would be sweet
    The perfect rejuvenation treat!
    My wish is the power to impress
    Judges of 25 words or less!!

  25. Karina Lee Reply

    To get all those knots rubbed out of my body…and for those few blessed hours of peace without crying babies.

  26. Shu-Ching Chang Reply

    It is a great prize for me time and everyone .Thank you.

  27. Angela Tennent Reply

    Need to relax and unwind so much pressure organising a birthday party and wedding at same time

  28. I would love to win this for my wife, she’s an amazing Mum and totally deserves this.

  29. Would love to win this not for myself self but to give to my own mum. Being a single parent working full time to make ends meet and she still makes time for her 8 children and 5 grandchildren. Selfless is an understatement and it’s time we give back to her!

  30. I would love a massage because carrying our new baby girl and my toddler boy around (often at the same time) is giving my back muscles a work out!

  31. Nichole Mckee Reply

    5 kiddies, one husband, 3 dogs, 2 cats, sheep and a bevy load of chookens and an ever inspiring garden keeps my day incredibly busy..Ohhh how it would be lovely to just put my feet up for a day and not worry about the farm 😉 Just a day haha 😀

  32. Jody Smith Reply

    I’d love to be “reset”. 6 months of breastfeeding have left me with poor posture!

  33. Lana Arandt Reply

    Would love some pampering.. even if it was 5 minutes to myself I would be over the moon haha!

  34. Michelle Macdonald Reply

    A couple of hours to myself would be Pure Gold! I love my 4yo, but the silence would be golden!

  35. Jennalee Izzard Reply

    After suffering postnatal depression, hubby being made redundant with a newborn and have spent more of my son’s life in and out of doctors and specialist waiting rooms than at the park. I’m so pleased and proud 2 long years later things are finally settling down, my son has had surgery And can now play with other kids, I’ve lost 40kilos and feel like the old me and hubby has found casual work. To be able to Expirence and enjoy some pamper time would be beyond amazing. I feel good within myself again so I would love for that to reflect on the outside too

  36. A pineapple mocktail, a relaxing uninterrupted spa session will be a nice pamper

  37. I know an old mother aged thirty-five,
    Who’s babies let her know she’s alive.
    A weekend away of pamper and bliss,
    Maybe over some pineapple she can reminisce.
    About life and love and return revived.

  38. Julia Mason Reply

    Because at the moment with my kids, hubby, work and study have got me so frazzled,
    I actually look like a pineapple! Tall, crazy hair,
    Rough dry skin and round at the bottom,
    A pamper sesh and rest would bring me back to my best!

  39. to young to know Reply

    because with so many high school kids and one crazy toddler. I am pulled into so many different directions. I just don’t know if I am arthur or martha anymore

  40. blackwidow63 Reply

    to give my daughter as she really needs to be spoilt as she has been given a second chance at life

  41. Shu-Ching Chang Reply

    Love this prize for special moment and making 10 years younger. Thank you

  42. Shu-Ching Chang Reply

    It won’t be nice to share this prize with my daughters. They have a lot of acne on their face.

  43. Lynnette Bull Reply

    Would love to win this pamper session to share with my mum. Have some much needed R and R together where we can just chat and chill. As life gets busier with my own kids I feel further from my own mum

  44. Shu-Ching Chang Reply

    Love this prize because my face would look amazing and my heart would sing.

  45. Eva Kiraly Reply

    I pamper my son, my friends, my hubby and my Mum, itd be nice to pamper number one.

  46. Samira Bousalim Al-Ekhtiyar Reply

    Most mums, including myself, put themselves 2nd – but winning MAKES you put yourself 1st 🙂

  47. Courtney Parsons Reply

    I would love to win this paper session to treat my bestie & I who I believe is an awesome mummy, time away from our kiddies to recharge our batteries.

  48. I have a 2 year old boy and 4 month old identical twin girls, time to myself is a rarity and pamper sessions are non-existent.

  49. Meg Bayliss Reply

    I have a friend who’s being having some rough times and I’d love to e able to take her mind off with a pamper

  50. Shannon-Tay Draper Reply

    It has been a very rough couple of years with more to come. A pamper to get ready for what’s to come would be amazing

  51. Just grabbing Din Tai Fung in the Food Court without my entourage would be pampering enough, but with $1000 voucher to burn, I’d be queen for the day!

  52. Michelle Budge Reply

    If I won I would buy myself a new wardrobe of cloths and shoes. Have a hair cut and dye job. It would be so great to do something for myself. Now that the kids have all left home.

  53. Maria Stone Reply

    I’m due with my second Bub next month (yay!) so a pamper session would be amazing…. I have an active toddler and we all know that pampering just doesn’t happen when you have little ones… This would just be a blessing! The Westfield gift card would be super amazing and would mean I could stock up on baby things, and pamper myself and my hubby and toddler also! Thank you for the opportunity!!!

  54. Rachel amanatidis Reply

    A pamper sesh is a treasured gift something u long and dream about .. Most Mums like myself put their family first . So I would love to win this and feel guilt free about it

  55. I would go on a shopping spree for myself. I never buy anything for me! Like most mums it’s always about the kids & I just seem to push aside what I need/want! Mumma needs a new winter wardrobe!

  56. Sarah McKenzie Reply

    As a ‘young’ mum I don’t think that I have ever had a pamper session!! It sure sounds lovely!!

  57. Kristy Winters Reply

    My husband has been workin in anther state since before Christmas so I have had the four kids on my own a pamper session for me would be an actual hair cut in a proper salon not a snip and save like I use , a wash and massage colour cut and blow dry followed by a coffee and cake with a magazine with NO kids around …..

  58. As a mum of 3 young kids everything is about them so it would be nice to do something just for me

  59. Vicki Smith Reply

    we all deserve to be pampered, each of us have a story to tell, but I really would like to be chosen, I don’t recall ever being pampered, too busy being a Mum & grandmother, which is a reward in itself

  60. Rachel Ch'ng Reply

    It’ll be nice to update my wardrobe for a change instead of my child’s as is the case of what happens everytime we go shopping. Would love to extend this pampering session to include my husband so that we can have some well deserved “us time”. Bub’s already two plus and we had yet to really go on a date ever since his arrival.

  61. After a full on couple of years with some major operations I’m on the mend for now so would love to treat myself to something just for me. I can’t remember the last time I brought a new outfit.

  62. I know I would “want” to soend the voucher on myself……… But I couldn’t help but buy my kids something…. Hehehe….. Because thats what us mums do best!!!! We put everyone else ahead of ourselves ❤️

  63. Im am run down and broken. Looking after three kids, a moody teenage daughter and two sons with severe learning disibilties, one of with just diagnosed with ADHD. Soing it all as a single Mum. I’m completely run out of steam. Haven’t had me time, a night out, a shopping trip on my own or salon visit for over 9 years. I’d love to win this pamper session to rejuvenate myself, relax and have the first me time in forever.

  64. I would love to win so I could take a couple of hours out or have a few spare dollars to spoil myself. This year has been an amazing year and I’d see this as a reward, you see I’m a single mum who works part time while I study full time to be a registered nurse at university. My golden moment is an amazing picture of my family this golden for me being with all the people I love.

  65. Barbara Fehmel Reply

    Oh Boy! a pamper session, would help get my aging skin back in good appearance after the summer, wind,. surf and sand.

  66. There are aching muscles and bones as to why for me, but there are so many more deserving having a much harder time of life than I am. At least I know of a way out of the mess. So a more deserving soul can have my vote.

  67. our first proud moment with our daughter in the big pool. she was about 15 months old. we later found out that she is autistic. she loves the water. i have two gorgeous girls who are 5 and 8 now

  68. Nicole angus Reply

    My Pure Gold Moment…My first skate with my daughter. Hopefully the first of many and hopefully if I tire her out skating she will sleep better tonight and give me more than 3 hours sleep…This mum NEEDS A PAMPER SESSION

  69. Heather Hopley Reply

    I’m a busy mum and just the thought of a pampering session gives me palpitations! Is it possible that I can lie, relax, eat uninterrupted and feel human again? Golly I hope so…. that will certainly be a golden moment!

  70. Id love a pamper session- someone to restore some spring back in my skin! Bless my kids – i love them but wow how tired am i these days!!

  71. Roberto Colombi Reply

    My Pure Gold Moment – seeing my sun join the Nippers – his love of the water and his ambition to be a lifesaver when he grows up makes me so proud
