The Aussie Product Scene

We Aussie like to have a bite Of bread and butter and vegemite We’ll save a Crumble bar for you Cherry Ripe and Lamingtons too With snags and meat pies all life long Instant Pavolvas seem all wrong Toohey’s and Carlton bring real cheer Four XXXX and Fosters fair dinkum beer Gran took Vincents with confidence Bushell’s tea Mums preference She takes the tea with Sarah Lee Guess that’s not quite real Aussie Neither is Arnotts, or Lean Cuisine Coke, Pepsi , Big mac or Dairy Queen Eating at the pics with my mates Minties and Jaffa chocolates Now the swaggie my mates and me We really like strong Billy tea Damper and meat pies still true blue Aussie products for me and you For kangaroo meat the prices are high Fair dinkum tucker you cannot deny. Though the Yanks grab all they can Witchery grubs just ain’t in their plan!

Good grief Lizzie, do you mean to say you eat kangaroo? Never knew this and I would think twice about that. The rest of the diet sounds pretty good though evenifI can't figure what it is! :)

Very interesting write... Makes me wonder what some of those are... Anything that can grab my attention and curiosity like that is a winner to me... Facinating.
