The combination of puff pastry, icing sugar and smooth custard might do it for people, but it’s a no from me. The ratio is just… off. And anything that has a nickname associated with snot automatically slides to the bottom of the list.
6. Finger Buns.
The soft, sweet buns topped with pink icing and desiccated coconut are an absolute classic.
Sweet, savoury, bloody delicious. They also kind of look like Kyle Jenner’s fingernails.
They’re good, but not great.
5. Caramel Slice.
Now THIS is a slice I can get on board with.
Solid biscuit base, creamy caramel and hard chocolate, this iconic treat gives you the perfect hit of sweet, smooth and crunchy.
Will you feel like you need to either throw up or take a nap after you eat one too many? Of course, but wasn’t it worth it?
Technically pavlova is more of a dessert than a snack, but I feel like when it comes to quintessential Aussie favourites, this meringue-based treat will be on a lot of people’s lists.
And yes, yes, I can hear the Kiwis screaming at me that this originated in New Zealand. But just like Russell Crowe, we’ve claimed it as our own for some reason.
3. Meat Pies.
I’m throwing this one in for my savoury girlies.
A pie can be a snack. A pie can be a meal. A pie can come in a million different flavours.
