The brand is known around the world as something uniquely Australian and it’s rarely available overseas. A great option when spread on toast, crumpets or crackers, Vegemite is something As you no doubt know, the spreadable is quite bitter tasting at first, but you soon grow to love it with time.
While it’s not everyone’s cup of tea (even some Aussies aren’t a fan), sending a courier to India from Melbourne to your pals in India with a jar of Vegemite makes for a fine gift and as good a reputation of life in Australia as anything! Preservable foods that can be transported long distances always make good gifts to friends overseas and there’s nothing that screams Australia like Vegemite does.
It’s true that Milo is sold and enjoyed in other parts of the world. It’s popular in Colombia, Brazil, parts of Asia and over in New Zealand too. But there’s no doubt that Milo is an Australia invention and a popular import. Many Australians enjoy this malt, chocolate drink with milk, and we all have our own ways of taking it.
There is some speculation that the Milo available in Australia is actually quite different to that overseas, meaning there’s an even better reason to gift it. We’d like to think the original is by far the best!
Australia is blessed with so many world’s best natural plant oils. Famous soap companies make handmade soap with ingredients sourced from within Australia.
