Would it not be more beneficial to ask Americans who have visited Australia?
i mean unless u can point me to an “americans that have visited australia” subreddit i figured i could ask here 😭
To quote Donald Rumsfeld
"there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don't know we don't know."
So just bring the snacks we don't know we don't know.
I’d have a look at Australian candy suppliers that specialise in foreign brands there are heaps online. That will tell you what the market doesn’t have locally.
ooh thats actually so smart thank u!
Just look for the copy/paste replies in all the previous times this has been asked instead.
Seriously, there must be more than a hundred submissions with the same title just one click away in the search box.
For me it’s American cereal-Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Golden Grahams, and Lucky Charms.
I also like stocking up on Poptarts and Heath bars.
My local Woolworths have carried a few of the pop tarts for some years now. (I’m in Canberra for reference)..
seriously, i just bought a gift for my american friend , a small box of cinnamon toast crunch for $15 it’s outrageous
You can definitely get those in most big cities if you have a look around
Yes I know you can get some of these in a big city but they are seriously expensive.
Redfern Convenience store probably has all the most popular snacks already, check out their Instagram, it's a corner store cult!
double stuffed oreos 😡
Nah they got those here
If anyone can tell where Adelaide is storing all the double stuffed oreos… I’m all ears.
Give ours a cheeky crack mate, bung a few Tim Tams and Freddos in your gob and wash em down with a VB longneck at 20 to 8 in the farken mornin and you’ll be Aussie before you know it.
Just adopt the local snacks, you'll be fine. There are a lot of shops that sell American brands (even the the supermarkets) if you are stuck. Do one of these "American trials Aussie food YouTube videos!"
they’re for my aussie family not for me dawg
Fair enough then!
My mistake. In that case, go for the obscure local brands that are hard to find out of your state/ area.
makes sense!! thanks !
Ruffles. Available, but severely inflated prices
Salty nut rolls
Twinkies are everywhere
Really?! I’ve only ever seen them in films >.<
Ritz Bits Cheese Sandwiches are absolute bangers - [link](https://www.ritzcrackers.com/Products/ProductDetails?productId=44000035457&&categoryId=72)
The goldfish crackers are also worth a try.
These guys have nearly everything http://www.usafoods.com.au
Snack cakes. It's a weirdly absent field here. Bring along some various Little Debbies and they'll never have had anything like it. (Bring me some Zebra Cakes while you are at it)
Might be easier just to look around the websites for Woolworths or Coles in Australia to see what is stocked.
Some of the dips and salsas are hard to get here. Anything ranch related.
How on earth would we know what we don’t have?
People in Australia have been to America and tried things there.
Check the Australian Border Force biosecurity web pages. This is the one for food: [https://www.abf.gov.au/entering-and-leaving-australia/can-you-bring-it-in/categories/food# ](https://www.abf.gov.au/entering-and-leaving-australia/can-you-bring-it-in/categories/food#Click)
Click on each type of food to see what is permitted or restricted.
I've never seen those big soft pretzels you guys have.
Two more: rice a Roni and Hamburger Helper.
Most american snacks are considered pretty gross here haha especially american chocolate. You can get some stuff like cereal, reeses, herhsey etc at specialty shops here. Maybe some the more limited edition flavours could be interesting e.g. different flavours of oreos or mnms. We usually only have the basic flavours here.
Maybe some barbeque type stuff e.g. good sauces or seasoning mix. Something a bit more authentic and local.
makes sense lmaoo thank u for the help tho !
You can pretty much get anything off the web. I even found my favorite Suave Chapina sandals from Guatemala on some website that was willing to ship.
