Fellow Australians, let’s be frank. America gets a whole lot of stuff wrong.
But recently, America went one enormous step too far in their misunderstanding of all things we Australians hold sacred.
On a list of “Hipster Food Trends You’ll Be So Over In A Year“, they called fairy bread a “stupid, colourful novelty”. They said it would “soon disappear”.
If you want to drink weird brown water and say it’s “coffee”, that’s your prerogative. If you want to deliberately steer clear of the most effective antiperspirant on the market, that’s on you. If you continue to blindly insist that Vegemite is gross when you’re just doing it wrong, the only people you’re hurting are yourselves.
But don’t mess with our fairy bread.
See, fairy bread is not “hipster”. It is, on the contrary, the snack of the people. Anyone can eat fairy bread! Anybody can make fairy bread! It’s only got three ingredients! THREE!
To help our American friends understand the concept, I’ve prepared a handy questionnaire for nosing out genuine “hipster trends.”
