Vegemite. The salty, dark spread made from brewer's yeast that's packaged in jars with sunny yellow lids and labels, lives in just about every household in the country. You either love it or you hate it and if you love it, we've got news for you! Arnott's have released Vegemite and Cheese flavoured Shapes biscuits just in time for the long weekend. If that wasn't enough though, they've even ditched their traditional hexegon-shaped cracker for a shape of the Australian continent. So you may want to - not walk - but run to Woolworths to pick up a box of these limited edition Shapes.
Aussies are great at barbecues, if not the best, but that's a topic for another day. There's so much variety on offer, you can opt for steaks, chicken, lamb, fish, veggies but you just need to look at the legendary Bunning's Sausage Sizzle to know that snags are a staple at any good barbecue. Stock up on locally made sausages perfect for the barbie at the Gold Coast at Saville's Butchery.
