As when going to or living in any country other than then one your were raised in, I feel like you can always find some interesting things locals did as children which seem so odd to you. One of those things for me was some of the food which was seen as classically Aussie. One day when I went to the grocery, I picked up a chocolate scroll from the bakery, however it wasn’t until I was home and tried it that I realized it was definitely not chocolate, but vegimite. I later learned this was a classic Aussie food, but I don’t think I’ll ever forget how wrong it tasted to me.
Another item like this is fairy bread, which is essentially white bread buttered with colourful sprinkles on it. To me, this seems like an odd combination, but apparently, growing up this was many Australian child’s favourite food.
