Goodies from Down Under
My family won an Australian hamper worth $100 from a NTUC contest!
Here are some of the goodies:
Biscuits from Arnott’s. These include the Family Assorted, Mint Slices and the ever popular Tim Tam range. Personally, I’m not a fan of biscuits in general so these don’t excite me.
Carman’s Classic Fruit Museli Bars. I love these! They are nicer than other brands of muesli bars and not too sweet. I like to snack on these healthy bars in between meals.Lowan Cocoa Bombs Breakfast Cereals. I tried this for breakfast and I don’t like it. The cocoa taste is not strong enough. I much prefer Lowan’s natural muesli range.
Old fashioned cookies from Country Gold. These include the Anzac and Coffee Scroll biscuits. Anzac biscuits are traditional crunchy golden baked oats and coconut cookies and these are quite good. The Coffee Scroll has spicy cinnamon, black currants in it but the strawberry icing spoils this for me as it’s too sweet.
Barokes Premium Australian Bubbly wine. This little can has 13% alcoholic content. Is this considered high? It’s quite nice though. I like the fruity sweetness with a hint of currants and flowers. This is a fine rose with medium texture and flavor.
Stromboli pasta sauce and da Vinci Fettuccine. We cooked these for dinner and found it so-so. I think I like pasta made in Italy better. Somehow, pasta made in Australia is just weird to me.There are also tea bags, honey, jam, coffee and other stuff in the hamper.
