Australian Food & Candy Review!

The following pictures are just a few traditional candies / snacks & street foods that I tried
during the past year of living in Australia, and I just wanted to share them here to encourage
you to try new foods in a different country.
And, if you’re planning a trip to the land down under soon,
here’s a list to get you started!
So, here are some of the things I think you should definitely try in Australia:

Flat White :
Basically a latte, with less foam (invented in Australia).
P.S. that’s my latte art! 😀
Musk Sticks :
Soft sugar stick with a fragrant taste (like perfume).

(these a good, in moderation, if you eat too many the perfume taste becomes really strong)
Anzac Biscuits :
They were invented in Australia, during WWI because the ingredients were easy to get,

and didn’t spoil.
Delicious oatmeal coconut cookies with a hint of honey, perfect for tea and coffee.
Meat Pies :
There are many different varieties.

They are sold at many bakeries around Australia, and some even have unique flavours.
This is just a few from a popular bakery near where I live.
Tim Tams :
Malted cookies coated with chocolate, with different types of filling,
(these are one of my favorite Australian snacks!
Lamingtons :
An Australian cake bar made from butter cake or sponge cake,

coated in an outer layer of chocolate sauce and rolled in shredded coconut.
Fairy Bread :
Sliced white bread with butter,
covered with “Hundreds and Thousands” (sprinkles),
served at children’s parties in Australia and New Zealand.
Vegemite :
A thick, dark brown Australian food spread made from leftover brewers’ yeast extract with various vegetable, vitamins, and spice additives.
(it does not taste as bad as it’s seems)
“Australian” Milo :
Milo in Australia is an iconic crunchy milk drink,

(first introduced in 1934).
It’s made from malted barley, dried milk, and cocoa.

(not to be confused with hot chocolate powder)

Thanks for reading!
I hope this list encourages you to try new foods wherever you are;
and helps you on your next trip to Australia – to know what to try!
