Taste of home

So I may have only been here three weeks but wondered if I could find somewhere that sells Marmite. It was something I had planned to pack but it didn’t quite fit in the suitcase.

Today I completed my mission by finding a British food shop. Probably the most I have ever spent on the smallest jar of Marmite but I found it! Oh and the all important Galaxy chocolate. There is not a shortage of chocolate options here it was just a little taste of home.

This shop located is in Collins 234 and sells everything from PG Tips tea to Persil laundry detergent.

Another reason for our outing was a friend’s excitement to have Jaffa cakes which were bought over here to discover they were only 2/3rds of the size of the ones in the UK and rather stale…turns out they were 6 months out of date! Edible but with a consistency not unlike compressed sawdust (these weren’t from the linked British food shop but an Aussie supermarket). We went in search of some that had a more authentic in date taste.
