Today was a big day of feasting at Lexis Byron – the students threw their own farewell lunch for their graduating friends and then this afternoon’s activity was:
Aussie Food Tasting
We sampled a variety of classic Australian snacks, including vegemite toast, tim tams, lamingtons, fairy bread, pizza shapes and twisties.
All of the chocolate flavoured treats were a big hit – the lamingtons and tim tams especially.
Both are staples in Australian childhoods, lamingtons being more of a specialty/novelty item for special occasions and tim tams being a popular biscuit to enjoy with coffee or milk(the trick is to bite into two opposing corners and use it like a delicious straw).
Unsurprisingly the least favored snack was the vegemite toast, even with a small ratio(by local standards). There were many funny faces pulled, and the general consensus is that it’s too salty for most peoples’ taste buds.
This was not the rule however – a few of our spanish students liked it!
Thank you to all of our students who participated with open minds and palettes!
