That one is well and truly noted I reckon the Cherry Ripes and Violet Crumbles could be good for a pint as well.

Chocolate clinkers & cheesy gobbles! I'd say golden gaytime too, but they'd melt!

My OH loves a double entendre! These raised a real laugh.... Otherwise Tim tams always go down well

Not very glamorous but what about Lucas Pawpaw ointment - a real Aussie icon apparently - made in Brisbane. Lots of women keep a small tube in their handbag. Good as a lip gloss as well as for cuts, burns,dry or cracked skin on hands and feet, cracked nipples,insect bites, sunburn, nappy rash,scalds, pimples etc.

The yellow leaflet that came with my tub from Coles gives a history about the stuff and its myriad of uses.
