Supermarket sweep australia number 1 incomplete nws 9 19 2 1992

Supermarket Sweep was an Australian version of the American game show of the same name. It was produced by Grundy Television, airing on the Nine Network from 1992–1994 with former Price Is Right host Ian Turpie as emcee, assisted by Tania Zaetta. Col Mooney and Alan Glover served as announcers.

The supermarket on this show was originally a Coles Supermarket, but was later changed to a generic supermarket. Like America, the winners searched for $5,000. The latter set was identical to the American show, as was the case with most Grundy-produced Australian games based on American programs.

Pairs of contestants, randomly selected from the studio audience, are asked questions about television commercials and supermarket merchandise, with correct answers increasing their allocated time in a "shopping spree." Contestants use their allocated time to run through the mock supermarket, filling their trolleys with as much merchandise as possible. The team with the highest value of merchandise is deemed the winning team, and plays in a treasure hunt-style bonus game, in which clues suggest which products must be found.
