As time goes on, trends move forward. A-listers become D-listers are people you know became people you once knew. One thing will never change: our love for food. Even so, countless numbers of classic Aussie snacks have been stolen from our shelves and our hearts. This goes out to the snacks we wish we still had.
Tiny bite-sized malt goodness…mmmm
#2 Cheese Stringers
If you ever took a whole bite out of these, you’re probably a monster
#3 Space Food Sticks
Not sure if anyone really liked these but nonetheless, we miss them
Nothing made it feel more like summer than cracking one of these triangle babies out of the freezer
#5 In A Biskit Chicken Flavoured Drumsticks
These were shapes before shapes were cool. Chicken salt deliciousness.
#6 Cadbury Marble Chocolate
Never again will you get the same white:milk chocolate ratio. Top deck just isn’t the same.
#7 Burger Man
The real hero. Kicks Burger Ring’s ass.
#8 Yoghurt Frogs
The ultimate primary school currency.
The Australian’s shittier Kinder Surprise. We miss them dearly.
#10 Kraft Cheese Sticks
I wish I had an HD photo of these but it seems everyone threw them out of their pantries and memories. Man, they were disgusting. What I would do to taste it one last time.
#11 Mamee Noodles
Everyone’s fave blue monster, and every mother’s worst crumb-infested nightmare
#12 Bertie Beetles
Definitely nobody likes these…but kids, are you really throwing precious showbag throwback chocolate in the bin? Tsk tsk tsk.
I really could cry about this one.
#14 Fruit Rollups
Every dentist’s worst nightmare. They did give you a gnarly tongue-tat for a second though.
#15 Double Dip
RIP to whatever happened to sherbert.
#16 Milo Bars
Nestle how could you?!
#17 M&M Bars
Biscuits and m&m’s, what a killer combo. You were lucky if you had this in your lunchbox.
#18 Fruit By The Foot
Are these the same as rollups? No, they’re in a league of their own, and they’re delicious.
#19 Animal Cookies With Icing And Shit
Not sure if anyone knows the name of these, but they were magical.
#20 Killer Pythons
The only Australian snake that probably wouldn’t kill you. It’s gummy snakes with 3 times the eating time.
Allow this to be our plea for Australian food companies to bring back the classics. Our shelves are looking a little empty and colourless without them.
