Now what about food and the fun treats we have grown up with? You find many Canadian or American treats in Australia!
1) Marshmallows – yes they have marshmallows in Australia but have you ever tried one?! Crunchy, small, sugary little balls – they are awful! I miss the light fluffy marshmallows that taste good on their own, in Rice Krispies squares (or Rice Bubble squares if you are in Australia), or roasting in a nice campfire!
2) Licuorice – Yes again they have great black licuorice but where’s Twizzlers red licuorice. Not even at the movies can you find them!
3) Clamato Juice – Now this is a sore spot because it isn’t even something you can ask your family or friends to ship over to you (due to the sheer weight of it). They don’t even know what a Caesar is in Australia! With all this nice weather and no caesars – whats the point! Yes they will mix it up and say ‘Oh a bloody mary’ but have you ever done a taste test to see that they are two totally different drinks!
Now how about Tim Hortons? I think Tim Hortons needs it’s own discussion-coming soon!
