    also had them in Blackaby's Tea Tree Plaza yesterday along with hula hoops and scampi fries!

     

    OMG Wendy you didn't go in that shop did you????!! And you made it out again?? Love the concept in there of picking your favourite sweets, then they'll zizz them all up in a blender and make a milkshake for you!

     

    I don't allow anyone from my family to go in there though!

    An Aussie friend from work bought me 3 bags of monster munch from there last week as we had been talking about English crisps. Watch the dates, all 3 bags were out of date but I enjoyed them anyway. I went in myself last weekend to get quavers but they were also out of date so I didn't bother.

    $10 for 3 bags I think it was.

    I have the opposite problem looking for australian stuff here in the UK for Aussie hubby! I know theres the Sanza shop etc in London, but as we're up in the frozen north I begrudge the postal costs!! haha....we were in our local Asda last week and hubby froze to the spot "theyve got chicken crimpies in!" he cries..sure enough Arnotts Shapes..boxes and boxes of them. I have to say a few ended up in our trolley, along with vegemite (yuck) and some VB. Now he is hunting for Samboy crisps!

    Yes yes yes

     

    i miss nothing english what so ever!!!

     

    Make the move to the other side of the world, do and eat as they do!!!

     

    Pomms go to certain places in the world and can't even wander the shops in a skirt!!

    Come to oz, don't moan...get on with it!!!

     

    No wonder so many return back to the uk after a few minor months!!!!

     

    You are very fortunate indeed - I've been here over 10 years now and still miss the odd UK product. But I'm not in denial :cute:

     

    I eat red meat in large quantities,drink lots of beer and wine (not Whine),I volunteer.

     

    I'm getting on with it - but not making a fuss :cute:

     

    Not saying a healthy debate is wrong but personal attacks and the manner in posting were wrong.

     

    Any further posts - please keep civilised!!!!:policeman:

     

    Pack it in - I now have to follow up on this thread,read every post and chuck out the rubbish and arguments - :skeptical:

    Guest garlic--bread

    Glad you took out the unsavoury posts Tyke....

     

    Theres a few things I hope I can get when i get to Adelaide, just little things....I love my pork, beef and black pudding sausages. I'm glad about the pickled onion monster munch though, quite partial to a bag now and again, though what about CHIPSTICKS?

     

    Also how much is Dr. Pepper ?? and can you obtain it quite easily? (love it with JD) then there is my hobgoblin bitter which I know I'll be able to treat myself with now and again :)

    Snags are not as good here - but a good friend and I are in the process of making our own - Cumberland next week I think ;)

     

    Seen Dr Pepper around.

     

    Hogoblin and many UK ales for sale in Dan Murphy's.

     

    Had a few pints of Speckled Hen in a small and lovely town Called Macclesfield last week.

    Surreal and lovely place with a surreal price for the ale!:shocked:

     

    Twiglets are on little snack I'd like to eat again.

    As with many things from the UK - can do without them but nice to have a taste of them now and again - comfort food;)

    My father in law is bringing me a tin of roses (a box of after 8's too) over at Christmas as a tin here was $65 in the lolly shop. I did wonder if he could bring a suitcase full over then I could sell themon here cheap and that will cover his airfare over lol.
