    They wouldn't be spitting it out if they knew how much that stuff costs!
    My cousin married an Australian last year and they're living outside of Sydney.

    OMG! She posts photos of grocery store shelves to make us cringe, the prices are ASTRONOMICAL even considering the conversion rate! (.10 difference)
    A bottle of Head and Shoulders runs $19! Rice Krispies are $6, a CHEAP loaf of white wonder bread is $4.50, and forget about washing laundry! A box of good detergent is $30! The cheap stuff on SALE was only $20 though... No Thanks!

    Stuff around here can get very pricey. I usually have a small amount of Vegemite on toast, but I don't have butter (only cause I don't eat butter anyway), I would never eat it on a spoon like that! My friend once dared me to eat a spoonful, not just a bit, but a whole spoon, worst mistake of my life....
    Also, I've never liked marmite, but I love vegemite, I've always found it weird since people say they taste so similar.

    Vegemite is Marmite in the UK - wonderful on toast or added to casseroles
    Milo - We used to eat that dry off a spoon - not how you're supposed to eat it btw

    That's what happens when the minimum wage is about $16 per hour

    Haha! I was once in a pizza restaurant where the guy at the neighbouring table told his friend who'd not seen green chilli peppers before that they were beans.

    Now I want to see Americans road test Middle Eastern food. Eggplant dip, harira, labneh, tabbouleh, hummous. All really yummy IMO (and more nutritious than the last selection) but I'd love to see the same testers try those.

    Any Americans reading: I can't get over that you guys apparently have cheddar cheese in spray cans. A Danish friend who's been to the US assures me this is so. What is its purpose? Does it actually taste good?

    No it doesn't taste good! It's used to squirt easily on crackers... And the laziest just skip the cracker and squirt directly in their mouths. Sheesh how hard is it to slice cheese!

    There are all kinds of things available in squirt bottles here, really gross, like pancake batter...
    Ewwww!

    One of the most ridiculous items on Australian supermarket shelves is "Shake and Bake Pancake Mix" - a big plastic bottle filled mostly with air and with a little fake pancake mix powder in the bottom. This is so people can fill it to the line with water, shake it and pour it straight in the pan. How hard is it to mix together flour, eggs and milk? A part of me wants to start selling "dehydrated water" bottles - just add water!

    There is a lot of truly gross stuff in America, designed to come spraying out of a can. Cheez-whiz, isn't it?
    I;ve only tasted it once, and that was enough. VILE!

    I HATE veggiemite, yuck! Tried veggimite and marmite and I despise them both. Odd, coming from someone who will try anything, LOVES salt and is fond of weird combinations(ketchup on toast anyone?). Love milo though.

    One of my favorite things in the world is trying new foods. I was just in costa rica and I tried a berry that tasted like cherry/tomato/smoke, a pear that tasted like roses and fresh cacao, straight off the tree. Its funny how some people who haven't been raised with different foods react though. Like giving someone raised inland an oyster
