Aussie Food Tasting! February 8th


Last Friday, we kicked off the weekend here at Lexis with some Aussie Food Tasting! We had a separate tasting for both our morning and evening students, at 11.30am in the student lounge and 2pm in room 2, meaning LOTS of food for everyone! 🙂

We had a range of delicious (and some not so delicious…!) foods to try:

  • Fairy Bread (white bread with margarine/butter and sprinkles)
  • Musk Sticks (pink semi-soft sweet stick with floral, musk flavours)
  • Allen’s Red Frogs (chewy jelly treats)
  • Macadamia Nuts (found in both New South Wales & Queensland)
  • Anzac Biscuits (oat biscuits)
  • Vegemite (yeast extract spread, popular with toast!)
  • Mini meat pies (pastry pies filled with meat, gravy, onion, mushrooms & cheese)
  • Sausage Roll (savoury pastry snack & popular party food)
  • Caramello Koala (chocolate bar filled with caramel)
  • Tim Tams (I think we all know what these are!! 😀 )
  • Lamingtons (a small sponge cake square coated in chocolate and coconut)





This is what tasting Vegemite for the first time looks like!!

Aussie food tasting was lots of fun! All of the food was finished….. except for the Vegemite! 😀
