My sister who lives in the US always craves Solo (lemon soft drink) when she comes back here to visit.  Not sure how easy to send though!

Also - Darrell Lea.  My UK in-laws love it.  Harder to get now though of course..   : (

That sounds like a cool idea! But I can't think of anything right now that no one else has said...

#10 ~sydblue~

Try Coles and some Pharmacies for Darrell Lea stuff.

You could try some bush tucker stuff - lemon myrtle jam and stuff like that.

Macadamia nuts are definitely native to Australia.



#12 Jenflea

Posted 27 January 2013 - 01:53 PM

Oh yes, Fantales.
Also don't just think of food, I also send lemon myrtle soaps or bush spices. The spice aisle has a good variety of native spices now.

I know you can't send it overseas, but our fresh produce is the best in the whole world!

Tim Tams are "Penguins" in the UK - FYI.
Many people think Vegemite is boot polish - I have no idea why.

I was talking with DD yesterday and said that I think we should adopt the US way of saying "tomatoes", because then it would have the word "mate" in it.

My parents next door neighbours in the UK are Australian.
When mum and dad visit us here they go back with a suitcase bursting at the seams with Anzac biscuits, Tim Tams, Masterfoods Smoky Bbq sauce and a big tubs of Lucas' Paw Paw ointment.

I do 'candy trades' with my Texan friends regularly. Their favs are:

Marble chocolate
Whizz Fizz
Choc covered macadamia nuts
Violet crumble.

When we recently went over, we took Vegemite and they all hated it, so I wouldn't waste space in the package.

There's also a range of hot sauces made in NSW that are delicious.  They have Aussie animals on the label for a bit of dinky-di wink.gif . The one we love is Fiery Frillneck Smokey Tomato Sauce - so good it's addictive.

Agree, I don't know anyone outside of Australia that likes Vegemite lol.  Any Uk friends perfer Promite, but still if you want to send an iconic Aussie stuff it's got to be in there - maybe send a note that they could use it in soups like stock?  Isn't that a use for it???

Second (3rd? 4th?) Tim Tams and Milo.

Just a thought. You can buy single serves of vegemite. Not so much of a waste.

#22 Riotproof

Posted 27 January 2013 - 02:22 PM

Milo. My American friends love it, apparently they have nothing similar. Also, chocolate bars like chokito, cherry ripe etc
