The prestigious competition is now in its 15th year and has gained a strong following in the region.
CCBSA’s Regional Presence Manager Deborah Nkanyani said: “We are absolutely delighted to present the 2023 Coca-Cola Bunny Chow Barometer which has become a wonderful addition to the social calendar for the people of the province.”
Nkanyani said apart from the prestige of being crowned the Bunny Chow champion, the winner will also receive a store makeover to the value of R50,000.
There is also plenty for those who love their Bunny Chows or those who are visiting the province and wanting to sample the taste of this traditional and celebrated Durban dish.
