Food glorious food

We've been down under for a bit over a week and we've been really enjoying some foods that we just can't find at home. Here is our list so far:
  • passionfruit yogurt
  • Vegemite
  • meat pies (Yes, that is Robin enjoying her first pie of the trip at the Toranga Zoo)
  • lemon squash
  • fish and chips
  • passion fruit on ice cream
  • Carlton Draught (Yes it is a kiwi beer but you can get it in Australia and not in the US)
  • Tim Tams
  • licorice straps. Not just cherry and anise, these are straps 2.5 feet long and thick. The aussies do licorice like nobody's business. One of our favorites is sour lime. I've only seen licorice strap vendors at the weekly markets.
  • sausage rolls
  • lemon slice
  • passionfruit
  • lamb snags
  • tasmanian cheese <-- this is a new favorite
  • smoked mutton sausage
  • Tasmanian pinot noir <- discovered this evening
I'm probably forgetting some... We haven't hit the bakeries much yet and they have lots of yummies. Getting hungry just thinking about it.
