LONDON, July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Starburst FaveReds promotion sees Asda shoppers around the country share their funniest and most embarrassing moments.
As part of a campaign to find the nation's favourite Red Starburst flavour, Asda and Wrigley asked Asda Shoppers to share their best "Red" moment story - anything from a romantic gesture to an embarrassing mistake, or something that simply had people laughing until they were red in the face.
After voting, the top 50 stories were announced on Asda radio this week, and they certainly don't disappoint in the comedy stakes...
A woman from London told how she was looking at houses in the window of an estate agent with her boyfriend. Thinking he was walking away she grabbed his hand saying, "I quite liked that three bedroom one and if we had kids it would be perfect, but I'm not sure about the area." The man laughed: "And I'm not sure about kids." When she turned round to look at him she realised in horror that she'd grabbed a stranger's hand.
In another entry, a man from Scotland told how his wife inadvertently bared all to a bemused builder, when he walked in on her while she was grabbing a shower in a house that was being renovated. "Just as the builder opened the bathroom door on my wife, naked in the shower, she promptly covered her eyes instead of her body - much to the enjoyment of the workman," he said.
Meanwhile, a lady from Cheltenham explained how she was left red-faced at her new job in a sports shop. Her previous job had been in a fruit shop, where she was often asked for a box for people to carry out their shopping. On her first day in her new job, you can imagine her manager's horror when a man sheepishly asked her for a box. She went out the back and handed him a cardboard box… the manager took over and handed him a cricket box.
With over 800 entries from around the UK, Starbust FaveRed stories can be organised by location to create locally relevant stories, such as "Wales is the UK capital of romance", "Kids from Birmingham are the funniest", or by theme, for example "Brits in kitchen chaos", "Wardrobe Malfunctions".
Starburst FaveReds are available now exclusively in Asda stores.
