Re: Aussie Food - Tim Tams & Vegemite

Hi,

I was in Australia a few years ago and felt in love with tim tam's and some other great products. Especially the Australian Beers are great. Some of them are already to buy here in switzerland, but I never found a place to buy the Tim Tams. To my suprise I stumbled on fb over a site www.ziano.ch and they sell three kind of tim tams, finally.

Regards

Dany

Vegemite heaven

Well I found a store that has the black gold. So I bought a jar. I have not tasted vegemite for at least 40 years. When I took the first bite of my vegi/butter toast my whole life flashed before my eyes. Strange that!

Its amusing that they stock that in the Brit shop! I am more of a Marmite kind of a person, the superior yeasty spread imo.

Sorry if thats been discussed ad infinitum in this thread! It was just merged

@omtatsat,

since you are in Zürich it might be worth checking out the new Orell Füssli english shop location - they might still stock it (afaik they did a while back...) and this might get you out of having to order it on britshop and waiting for delivery. I don't know about possible price differences though. Good luck and enjoy

Re: Happy little Vegemite?

Seems in Australia they use it to make moonshine booze. Its used as a fermenting agent.

Re: Happy little Vegemite?

Orell Fussli off of Bahnhof Strasse sell it on the top floor for 8.90CHF

Yes it's a bookstore but they have a corner for English/Australian foods on the English book floor.

Re: Happy little Vegemite?

Orell Füssli are out of it. So in Switzerland it seems to be not available. I'm wondering whether it because people are making cheap bier out of it.
Heres a good video about vegemite. Viewer discretion is advised!
