A grocery store in South Australia says paranormal detectives are investigating a possible ghost with a penchant for flinging Fruit Roll-Ups.

Brompton IGA store owner Norm Hurst says he turned to his surveillance footage after finding a box of the fruit snacks laying in an aisle, about six meters from its original location, after he had locked up shop.

‘The previous owners told me it was
haunted,’ Mr Hurst told Adelaide Now. ‘I thought, ‘yeah, whatever.’ But
since we’ve owned the place, strange things have happened.’

Mr Hurst watched the CCTV footage and says he was shocked by what he saw.

‘One of the cameras shows the packet of Roll-Ups just arriving on the ground,’ he told the Herald Sun. ‘It has not just slid off, it has been thrown out of the pasta, yet, the Roll-Ups are kept 12 metres away.’

Different angles of the video show no one in the area when the anomaly occurred.

Mr Hurst said the store was entirely empty, closed and just before midnight according to the footage, when it happened.

Some viewers of the video have noted a time jump immediately before the product’s appearance, from precisely 11:27pm to 11:30pm, accusing the video of being edited.

Another noted however that most surveillance cameras are set to record only when they detect movement, explaining the three minute gap in time.

On Thursday night the store reported paranormal detectives arriving to investigate the store.

Movement: The box can be seen here flying down this aisle with its first appearance as a diagonal shadow on the floor's center right side

Fast: It quickly lands at the end of the row of shelves as if it were forcefully thrown

One paranormal detective, Jessica Pulvirenti, told Metro she watched and evaluated the video and believes it’s genuine seeing no wires or strings attached.

‘I think it’s pretty cool, actually,’ Mr Hurst told Metro.

‘It hasn’t done anything nasty,’ he said, while reasoning to the Advertiser that the ‘ghost has a sweet tooth.’

Glad to see the woman in the studio has her head screwed on. Men are so easily fooled… 🙂

A box falls on floor.

Very spooky. I bet the ghost look like the manager to. Knows all off the angels off the cameras etc etc just really spooky to me

Why a ghost? Could be vibration from outside or any other natural occurance. Ghosts do not exist. When we die we are no more. Our brain and body cease to function. We would not be able to remember where to go to haunt!!

Wow! You know exactly what happens when we die! How?

I don’t see the supposed ghost anywhere. Unless they’re trying to claim the man in the aisle in the second picture is a ghost.

We have a ghost here then. A plate fell on the kitchen floor about 5 minutes after stacking them in the drainer. No one was near the kitchen at the time :-0 was it a ghost or did they/ it just fall and roll. I prefer the simpler explanation of the ghost!

Laughable. It would have had an ounce of credibility if it has floated. But it has been shoved or moved by something probably a rat.

‘…finding a box of the fruit snacks laying in an aisle…’, that really is spooky, unless you mean ‘lying in an aisle’.,

It’s probably just Pauline Quirke reprising her role as the shop assistant who makes things fly off the shelf in Nigel Kneale’s TV play “Special Offer.”
