When I lived in San Jose, my best friend lived a block away from a store that specialized in Australian gifts. But for some reason, he and I never went in. Then, last Christmas, I wanted to send him a box of Tim Tams, so he could learn how to do a Tim Tam Slam.

Imagine my surprise when the top google reponse was that store we overlooked called "Australian Products, Co." So, I bought my friend an oilskin jacket, that box of Tim Tams, and a ton of other Australian food besides. I couldn't resist sending some to myself as well:

Fruit Tingles
Cadbury "Picnic" bar
Cherry Mash
Tim Tams (both original *and* double coated!)
Violet Crumble
Arnott's "Shapes" biscuits
and Vegemite (I haven't had the courage to try this one yet!)

Aussie

Until the day I get to visit Australia myself, this box of goodies will have to do!

Make some really crunchy ciabatta toast, butter it, and spread a very very thin layer of vegetate on it. It's really good so long as you don't overdo it, it's strong and salty.

Do not underestimate the power of the dark sludge. Fresh, hot toast with a generous application of butter, then take a fingernail sized scoop of Vegemite on the tip of your knife, and distribute evenly over the toast.

Do not be tempted to overdo the Vegemite. You get one chance at it, and many people have been put off it forever due to initial overindulgence (a bit like tequila).

I am totally curious about the taste of vegemite, yet kind of scared.

I had to paint a bunch of those oilcloth coats once. Nothing sticks!

Also, if you wash them, be prepared for a scum-ring 2" wide, in the washing machine!

Vegemite sounds like flat caviar.... salty, but no bubbles!

I grew up on Marmite, the french/british equivalent to Vegemite. My mom even has a giant Marmite cookie jar. Its so good. I could eat it all day. Marmite sells 2 t-shirts on their website. J'adore Marmite, and j'deteste Marmite, so you can choose your side!

Have Thor take your picture immediately after your first bite of Vegemite. I'm dying to see your expression (yes, I have tasted it.)

Are you tired, run - down, listless? Do you poop out at parties? Are you unpopular?

The answer to all your problems is in this little jar. With Vegemite you can spoon your way to health. All you do is take a great big tablespoonful after every meal. Mmmmmm.... It's so tasty, too! Tastes just like candy!

So why don't you join all the thousands of happy peppy people and get a great big jar of Vegemite tomorrow!

I have no idea what the packaged product is, but how could any gay man not be interested in "fruit tingles"?

I've certainly had a few in my time.
