One thing I need you to know about me before we go any further is that I love a little treat.
There is nothing quite like that moment of joy and anticipation as you stand at the counter of your local bakery or corner store and decide what to get.
So I’d consider myself a bit of a snack connoisseur.
Is this a useless skill? Well, yes mostly. But I’ve decided to make it slightly less useless by creating a definitive ranking of classic Australian snacks.

I can practically hear you disagreeing with me already, but here goes...
7. Vanilla Slice.
Also known as a “snot block” or “phlegm sandwich” (seriously, Aussies will find a gross/iconic nickname for just about anything), these are a tuckshop classic and still front and centre in most local bakeries.
The exact origins of the french-inspired snack aren’t really known, but we’ve claimed the pastry as our own.
