Australian Snacks

Good afternoon, dear readers!  I was talking with someone yesterday about a snack exchange I took part in, and I thought I would make a post about it.  As I mentioned last week, I take part in numerous exchange groups, and one of them is the snack exchange group on reddit.  I ended up swapping treats with a gentleman in Australia, and here is a picture of the goodies he sent to me.

My exchange partner sent me several packages of TimTams and Vegemite for the hubby.  I can honestly say that I tried the vegemite, but I did not care for it at all!  My exchange partner told me that I would have to do a Tim Tam Slam, so I had to find a video demo on youtube.  This particular one was/is my favorite.  

Let me just show you how it turned out in rage comic form.

Yep, it didn't go quite as well as I would have liked, but it was well worth the mess!

This is what I ended up sending out to him.  He had told me that he really liked spicy Mexican foods, but he doesn't have access to anything like it.  I sent a variety of hot sauces (several are made in Mexico), canned peppers, prickly pear jelly, and a few other odds and ends.  DH and I are both fans of spicy foods, and I think we have 6 different hot sauces open in the fridge right now.  Sorry for the bad cell phone pic- I didn't think to snap a quick picture with my camera.

I hope you enjoyed my post and have a wonderful day!
