Not an ex-pat, but I brought some Adelaide Blue (cheese) back recently and it is mmm-mmmm.

I know someone who’ll appreciate the garlic mettwurst, so I’ll spread the word.

Would you find them with the deli goods?

Nope in the banking section 😉

I’d give my left arm for some stikaroo kangaroo metwurst, Wintulichs Pty Ltd in Gawler make it

he fritz in my fridge at work is very quickly getting eaten. fruchocs went in about 5 mins. great to get home favorites local these days.

Rule #1: No Victorians.
Rule #2: Refer to Rule #1.

That, and a big plus to the Haigh’s choccies please, much better than anything Koko Black has to offer. My vote goes to the Chocolate Almond Creams and their truffles.

Gold! So true

Balfour Kitchener Buns or Frog cakes!

I usually have to buy when I am in Adelaide (regular occurence) or at worst in the SA Shop in Adelaide Airport. They stock Frogs, metwurst, haigh, fruchocs and SA wine and beer. Ex-Adelaiders heaven!!

God bless you IGA Swinger Hill.

#7 sirocco: yes, farmer’s union branded iced coffee is in most of the country now, but not the (better) stuff made in South Australia!

All of it I have seen in Canberra is from Victoria, and doesn’t taste the same. I guess milk probably has a regional taste.

Hmmmm, still tastes prett close though, but given the distances of travel involved and the distribution contracts it seems really unlikely that we’ll ever see the real stuff 🙁

Personally, I prefer Farmer’s Union Classic Chocolate – maaan alive that stuff is good! Tastes like my SA childhood.

Bring on the huge Haigh’s Chocolate Frogs!

One word. Egg Nog. Oak is good.

Why can this drink not be bought anywhere else but from Adelaide?

Enny 10:17 pm 12 Oct 10

I am super excited about the Haigh’s – looking forward to it!

Can you import Johnny Haysman to walk thru civic and braddon with his backpack n gumboots?

Aaaah the pangs of nostalgia, where we long for gristle and cardboard aka a Balfours pie washed down with a west end draught.

But Fruchocs and metwursts mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Trog08 7:22 pm 12 Oct 10

Please tell me Balfours’ frogs might be a possibility some day?

CoffinRX2 7:04 pm 12 Oct 10

ps i saw west end draught for sale in belco a few weeks back .. please dear god leave that stuff in adelaide!

CoffinRX2 7:03 pm 12 Oct 10

vili’s, balfours, coopers & haighs please

pie floaters? 🙂

I’ll never forget a mate of mine who flew into Adelaide after eighteen months in London and her first meal was, of all things….

Fritz and sauce on Swiss Maid bread!

Those were the days…. 🙂

Maggie Beers’ Duck and Star Anise pate is sublime…
