So as most of you might already know, we just recently went to Australia and had a chance to meet lots and lots of Aussie Nasties both from Sydney and Melbourne. If you didn’t know that, you can check out our adventure videos in Australia. Well those lovely Nasties brought us lots of local snacks to try so we decided to do a little FAPFAP combining the treats from Sydney and Melbourne. We didn’t put everything on camera, for example, we got some perishable goods like cupcakes, cookies, and cheesecakes and we nomnomnomed those right away. Also, I hope you Aussie Nasties don’t mind, but we shared all the food you got us with the volunteer staff and the SQ Entertainment staff since there was no way we’d be able to eat it all! They were pretty happy.

We also ate A LOT of crazy Timtam flavours, like Honeycomb, Rum & Raison, and Orange. Lucky for us the hotel we were staying at had green breakfast smoothies and a gym! WAHOO!!! We were especially happy Soozee was with us because most of these flavours were totally brand new to her and she had never even heard of them before. Leigh lived in Australia for a bit so she already knew a lot of the candy and had recommended stuff for us to try. If I had to pick my fav, I’d have to say Violet Crumble because I love that kindof burnt sugar taste. But I get the feeling it’s really really really bad for you. We also tried a Lamington from a local cafe in Melbourne and it was a lot richer than the one we tried on camera since it was triple the size and had jam on the inside! It was really yummy but quite sweet and needed to be drank with coffee for sure.

Also, you might have noticed Leigh’s “stand in” who is our friend Harriet, who we actually met in Bucheon a while ago but is now living in Australia. Small world right? She told us that in Australia candies are called Lollies. Is that right? Is Lollies the generic term for candy? Or is this a Britishy thing cause Harriet is British. I think Lollies sounds totally lovely.

Lastly, if you’re watching this from Singapore, hey! We got some news for you! We’re doing a Fanmeet tomorrow! It’s going to be

Wednesday, September 18th, at 5pm at Scape on Orchard Rd.

If you want to come, you should meet in the atrium! Woohoo!

    Vegemite is something that needs to be eaten in small amounts on something, usually bread. I usually put butter (or margarine, depending on your budget) on first, and then put a thin layer of vegemite on top of that. But yeah, first time trying it is always a bad experience, since it’s an acquired taste. XP Living in Korea, I kinda of miss it now (though it was hard to get anyways in California… XP), so I have to have it sent to me by my family. DX

  2. Oscar_de_Jarjayes

    Martina, how do you keep your long hair shiny and healthy?? Thanks :)

  3. QueenCL

    ‘lollies’ is not a British thing as far as I know (i should really know seeing as i’ve lived here my whole live..:P) so it must be an Aussie thing ^.^

  4. cookiemonster

    this was actually really funny to watch. I think the only people who like Vegemite are those who ate it when they were a kid, I didn’t so I really can’t stand the taste. And yeah, we call candy lollies – it was weird hearing you guys say candy haha.

  5. Josilyn Busi

    Noooooo you guys didn’t do a Tim Tam Slam!

  6. HighSchoolGirrr

    When will the new Music Monday come out?:)

  7. bigbangfosho
    bigbangfosho

    Did you guys get a new editor? I thought that the style was different. Much more Asian, with the sound effects and stuff.

    haha thought Simon was gonna star singing “chicken noodle soup……..chicken noodle soup! chicken noodle soup with a soda on the side!”

    awww Soozee’s chocolate Penguin looked like the one from Toy Story!!!

  9. passingsometime

    Finally booked my ticket for the fanmeet in Stockholm!!! OMG I’m gonna meet you guys so soon, really excited xD

    A quick Q: I read somewhere that presents and gifts are not “allowed” since you don’t have enough space in your baggage, which is understandable… But is it okay to bring small snacks? (those you can munch on pretty quick and right there, so you won’t have to take them with you), or is it better to not bring anything? Feels bad to just let you guys go, without anything from us :s

    *Fangirling so hard!!!!!*

  10. Daryl Stephenson

    I can’t believe you guys have never encountered a Freddo before. That’s so sad.

  11. Amyaco

    I’m still trying to pinpoint the moment where Martina stopped pronouncing Melbourne “Melbern.”

  12. Gemma Deacon

    I think calling candy ‘lollies’ is an Aussie thing because I call ice lollies ‘lollies’ and candy ‘sweets’. (btw I’m British)
    Anyway I wanna try the hundreds and thousands freddo! I used to eat h&t straight out of the pot. So much yum! I also wanna try the vegemite cheesy bites. They look tasty.
    P.S. I love vegemite.
    P.P.S Watching these Aussie vlogs makes me really want to visit Australia

  13. Natasha Rikunenko

    I’m English and from my experience ‘Lollies’ is a word used in the UK and in Australia and it’s what we call lollipops or suckers or whatever you choose to call them, for example a tootsiepop is a lolly. We also use the word lolly for what you call popsicles. Also hundreds and thousands are like sprinkles but are little round balls instead of strands!

    “The way it shatters it matters” does sound sexual but more along the lines of some geriatric lovin’.

  15. Enchanted Rain

    I personally love vegemite. the reason ppl don’t like is because they don’t know how to properly eat it. also, i think because it looks like nutella ppl are put off by the taste because it’s so different to what they were expecting.

  16. Enchanted Rain

    we call all ‘candies’ except for chocolate ‘lollies’. chocolate is just chocolate. we use ‘sweets’ or ‘confectionary’ if we are talking about both chocolate and lollies

  17. British people usually put hundred and thousands on trifle!
    And Lollies is standard for lollipops…

  18. Damn I really thought that was Leigh…

  19. Sarah Lucy Jackson

    Now I’m craving chocolate Tim Tams and I have no idea where to get some! Thanks, Simon and Martina!

  20. wanderingdreamer

    So basically at future meet and greets some fans should bring veggies or smoothies to balance out all the sweets?

  21. Carly Barrow Billings

    Meemers has obviously already fitted you with a mind-control device which prevents you from saying anything bad about him.

  22. ochixiru

    Luckily I was eating chocolate while watching this.

    “It’s your turn to be not annoying” :D

  23. Shelley Beh
    Shelley Beh

    u guys must have really gotten a super sugar high after eating all those sweet stuff haha

  24. nancyau

    Yeap it’s a generic term we use for lollies but I use lollies and candy interchangeably. And all thanks for saying it sounds lovely people rarely say that about Australian Vocabulary XD

  25. OMG this is so strange,you’ve never heard of the word lollies!!

  26. You should have Violet Crumble ice cream then.But I’m not sure if they still sell them

  27. Koriena Lee

    Haha I really get a kick out of watching non-aussies eat vegemite (I’m sure most Aussies do… we like to mess with people lol).
    I think I can see the bottle of wine we gave you on the side yay! we were so worried the wine and ciders would be broken or fall out the bottom of the bag O.O Mum nagged my sister and I non-stop about not wrapping it properly >.<

  28. Emilie

    I’m pretty sure the cookies in the red wrapping you are talking about are Biscoff Cookies. Although I have never been to a coffee shop in Korea, they sound just like the ones you get on airplanes.

  29. Renee

    Those were tiny ANZAC biccies! haha. Normally they’re enormous!

    By the way, have you guys ever heard the noises Tasmanian Devils make? You should check it out. Tassies look really cute, but they make a really scary noise :P

  30. Dien Hang

    ” I think Lollies sounds totally lovely.” I’ve never heard anyone say that about our vocabulary before! Thanks Simon and Martina :) You make me feel special being an Aussie. :3

  31. fuuko4869

    Lol whatever happened to that list of Australian foods that I sent you ages ago? :p

    I think you’ve tried almost all of them now – except Witchetty grubs? :D

    Thanks for the video :) My family watched it saying ‘wait- that’s Australian? ‘ xD

  32. Monique

    and the cork hat is used to swat flies away from your face when your outdoors :D

  33. Monique

    the “bear” toy is a tasmanian devil by the way :D

  34. Kahu Pohatu-campbell

    Yeah We don’t say candy we say lollies. I’m not an Australian, I’m a New Zealander but we say mainly the same stuff. Except for you guys call those shoes “Flip flops” right? but in Australia they call them “Thongs” and we call them “Jandals…” a bit of a fun fact theres on NZ terminology.

  35. Georgia Row

    Next time you eat a Tim Tam, try biting two corners diagonally opposite each other and dunk half of the biscuit into a hot chocolate or coffee and suck the drink until you taste it on your tong then stick the whole thing in your mouth…ecstasy

  36. I know, I’ll just give you guys a recipe of the Swedish cake instead. (then you can’t blame me if it’s going to be disgusting)

  37. Casey Li

    I like the hats xDD Even I haven’t has some of these noms before :o And have you guys had fairy bread? It’s like, the best thing EVARRRR <

  38. You guys should try ‘Pods’. They’re Australian chocolate and their really good.

    Also, are you going to be uploading any more videos from Melbourne?

  39. Kimberly Koh

    nooooooooooooo ): whyyyyyy do I have work at the time of the fanmeet whyyyyy TTTTT.TTTTT aish

  40. Stephanie Williams

    I had no idea that yous didn’t know what hundreds and thousands were.
    and we do call candy lollies here.
    also i had no idea that there were that many timtam types, I only found out about honeycomb last week because my sister bought a couple of packets, and most of the others i probably haven’t heard of.
    I’m afraid to ever taste Vegemite, i have been threatened with it near my face before and it smells bad.

  41. You should try vegemite on a toasted cheese sandwich…. do you call it grilled cheese in Canada? Just put a bit of vegemite on the bread before putting cheese on.

    And lollies is correct, but we don’t usually call a chocolate bar “lollies” that’s just “chocolate”…. but then something like m&ms might be called lollies…. but it’s chocolate……….hmmm.

  42. I’d say lollies are specifically chewy candies such as gummie bears, snakes, mints and caramels. Chocolate,snickers bars or ‘violet crumbles’ would just be called chocolate or candy.

  43. Yay i’m glad you got to try my Anzac biscuits Martina! ~ From Shy white boy near the start of the Sydney fan greet.

  44. Jessica Crandall

    Tasil? Tasmanian Devil? Kinda appropriate for Simon’s spirit animal…Like a Maaan!

  45. Nicoll Paatan

    Rum & RAISON: this is some kind of Aussie English I’ve never encountered before. Those Tim Tams are a new line of specialty ones.

  46. Hope you guys get to try out some of my recipes from the eyk cookbook!

  47. take a tim tam, bite off both ends, use it as a straw to suck up some hot tea and eat it before it melts into your drink. TIM TAM SLAM

  48. That “bear”, was a “Tassie Devil”, you know, like in the cartoons

    • OMG really? Ha! How did we not know? Probably because it wasn’t surrounded by a tornado.

      • M Davis

        tassie devils are just as insane as the cartoon. i’ve never seen one, but apparantly they are loud. like so obnoxiously loud, that their own ears turn red. do not approach – especially the females. in fact don’t approach any aussie wild animal. even koalas – they’ll scratch your eyes out if they feel scared.

        • Nekochan

          It seems like everything in Australia can kill you.

        • M Davis

          you have no idea. luckily we have government-funded medical insurance – else we’d be so screwed.
          actually to tell you the truth, i think canada is scarier. here as long as you stay away from the animals they’ll stay away from you – you just gotta be smart about it. in canada don’t they have freaking bears and mountain lions? oh my! i tell you the only real predator here are dingoes, and they stay away if you do. imagine a freaking mountain lion! in your backyard! that’s insane!

        • Nekochan

          There are a good amount of mountain lions in Texas too. We also have rattlesnakes, tarantulas and brown recluses. Brown recluses are the scariest, they’re tiny but venomous.

  49. Hello! Australian nastie here! ^^ Yeah we call candy lollies down here! ^^ Glad you guys had such a great time!! Come back soon!!

  50. Kenny Cheng

    Have you guys ever had fairy bread? Or is this just an Australian thing. Every kid who grew up in Australia and has been to a primary school birthday party would have had fairy bread.

    It is bread with butter and Hundreds and Thousands (rock candy but like 1mm in diameter big and full of artificial colouring) sprinkled all over it.
