My order from Simply Oz finally arrived today! It felt like Christmas as I was opening the well sealed brown box, each item carefully bundled in its own bubble wrap. It was like a slow tease pulling each item out one by one, wondering what surprise would be next! Yes, I know I’m probably exaggerating, but after craving these foods for so long, holding them in my hands was like hugging a long lost cousin. Well, not exactly but you know what I mean :)

After I took everything out of the box I just had to take a picture of course. John merely rolled his eyes as I carefully arranged the goodies for the photo. After taking ten different shots in different lighting and angles, I gave up and just stuck with using the flash on the camera. I was going to wait until day time to take a photo in natural light, but I can happily say that my taste buds couldn’t wait until morning to sample the delights.

Mint Slice - mmmm its been too long, Cheezels - oh my GOD! I have seriously died and gone to heaven. The pièce de résistance obviously has to be the Praise mayonnaise, since I’ve been harping on about it for so long. I can eat buckets of this stuff, seriously.

I bought Copha (solidified coconut oil) as its been so long since I made chocolate crackles. I was craving them a while ago and was _this close_ to using vegetable shortening instead since they don’t sell Copha in the US. Thankfully there are people out there as desperate as I am that have tried making them using shortening, and have posted their warnings about not using the stuff. Savoury chocolate crackles? No thanks!

Righto, time for some licorice bullets....

Ooh, Red Rock Deli Sweet Chilli and Sour Cream potato chips. Couldn't stop eating that stuff on the car trip to and from Canberra. So very addictive. Just to spite you I think I'll get some tomorrow from the convenience of a local store and have them all to myself. Yesiree.

Mum asked if you wanted us to send over Tim Tams or mayo but I wasn't sure if it'll survive the transit.
