Aussie products

I don't really use Facebook but do have an account to keep in touch with some overseas friends and look at photos. Today I was browsing and noticed Sue from nb Festina Lente had posted a link to an online store that sells Aussie products.

Someone had asked me the other day what foods we miss from home and I said we can pretty much get everything here.  We even order Vegemite from Ocado.  But.... looking at the online store reminded me of so many things we don't see even if we hardly ever buy them at home....  Tim Tams, Arnotts Mint Slice, Caramello Koalas, Butter Menthol, Cruskits, Chicken in a Biskit, Kraft peanut butter, Milo (although we still have some left), Weet Bix, and dip made from Philly and Continental French a Onion soup mix.  They all suddenly sound so much more appealing than when they were in the supermarket aisles each week.

I wonder what English supermarket items we will miss when we get home?!

I think you may miss some of the Marks and Spencer meals. Just guessing from reading your blogs although I am sure there must be a few more

Diane, We did think we would miss our favourite M&S salmon fillets but have come up with a marinade almost the same. Now the only problem will be the price of salmon back home!
