Food Surrender!






So it's about time I updated on the food surrender!
Stinkypaw sent me a lovely box of goodies with a beautiful card. Having no idea what we get in Australia, she managed to do a good job in finding things that were new to me - only one thing that is common over here, and that's the Kitkat. Interestingly enough though, when I ate it I realised the chocolate is different - much darker than our milk and not as sweet.

Most of the other things she sent were very like what we have here. We have Pringles, but not ketchup ones, so that was good. I've always wanted to try Tootsie Rolls having heard about them so much in American literature; they were very nice, and the small hard candies were delicious! We have something nearly the same as Whippets but for the life of me I can't think what we call them. The Mirage is very like our Aero bar, but again, a darker, less sweet chocolate. Hershey bars made an appearance in Australia in the 80's, but are quite hard to find now.

Thankyou so much Stinkypaw, and I hope you enjoyed your package!

Well, duh!

I bought a container of yoghurt-covered peanuts. On the lid it said 'Yoghurt Peanuts' in big letters. In the ingredients list, it said yoghurt 75%, peanuts 25%. And on the base was a warning.

"May contain traces of peanuts."
