Hallo! I've got a friend in Australia who has a package to fwd me. Can you think of anything Australian and junk foody she could add?

I've read a bit and plan on telling her about the dark chocolate aero bar and that white chocolate y'all were raving over. What else can I have her look for?

Thanks so much! Woo!!

BBQ Shapes are the only food I ever miss when I'm overseas.

I also really like Loving Earth chocolates, especially the coconut milk ones.

Mintons are great! The Tim Tam ones made me so sad the first time I tried them, but I had them again a couple of months ago and they were okay. Maybe I needed the time to forget what real Tim Tams tasted like.

I really like the House of Biskota biscuits you get from health food shops, especially the monte cream ones. But they're way overpriced so they're a sometimes food.

I miss apricot delight when I'm out of the country.. not sure if it's counted as a junk food or not though :)

YES! The Leda rum balls...they are the most delicious thing EVER. Their chocolate chip cookies are amazing too! Some of Whitaker's dark chocolate varieties are vegan, and Sweet William is an Aus brand isn't it (I find their chocolate too sweet)? I also like the Loving Earth coconut milk chocolate, although I had I think it was a Dutch brand of chocolate with a raspberry centre (there's a caramel one too) which was the nicest vegan chocolate I've ever tried.

Pana raw chocolate is also amazing. I'm not sure how widely available it is, though - does it sell outside of Victoria? (If not, and people want me to hook them up, I am more than happy to).

I bought some at the vegan festival in Adelaide last year and they're selling it at a vegan cafe in Canberra now. You can find it but I don't think it's as widespread as it is in Victoria (yet!).

I don't think that Noble Choice chocolate is Australian (I think it's British?) but it's super easy to find here and the raspberry one is awesome. When I first saw it I bought some to try a piece and then keep in my filing cabinet at work for snacks, but then I kind of blacked out and all of the chocolate was gone and I felt really bad about myself for the rest of the day.

Yes! The Eskal stuff? I've only ever seen the mint chip one and it's really really good.

I was gonna say McVitie's Digestives..... they're vegan, right? I've never noticed any non-vegan ingredients on the packet but I'm always suspicious of the accidentally-vegan stuff.

So exciting that you can get Pana elsewhere! I had to stop eating it because of developing a coconut sensitivity, which is really really sad.... we sell it at the Food Co-op and I look at it longingly all the time. I did find that their rose one was a bit heavy on the rose flavour though.

McVities is a Brit company, as far as I'm aware, but I've never heard of Noble Choice, if that's any help?
