Aussie's Favourite Snacks Revamped 😍

Hangry = an adjective that describes being irritable due to hunger. Snacks are the saviour that bridge the gap between meals and keep us from entering the hangry danger zone. Whether you’re a full blown snack addict with an epic work drawer full of goodies (ehem me), or a once every few hours kind of snacker, we all have our favourite go-to treats.

In the interest of taking your snack game from a 6 to a solid 10, we’ve curated a list of the most popular snacks with a guide to upgrade those everyday nibbles to restaurant quality options AND exactly where to find them.


1) Muesli Bars

It’s happened to all of us; waking up on a Saturday morning, in desperate need of fuel ahead of your PT session, so you open the pantry to find something to get you through. Forget about choking down a boring Muesli bar, try a delicious Acai Bowl. They are all the rage right now. It’s like the love child of a muesli bar and a smoothie. FYI after months of embarassing mispronunciation, I’m happy to report Acai is pronounced ah-sigh-ee. You’re welcome.

2) Nutella

There is actually a day of the year solely dedicated to the smooth, hazelnutty goodness that is Nutella. And so there should be. While Nutella straight out of the jar is obvs amazeballs, we can do you one better. You might want to sit down for this, Critini’s Italian Restaurant serves Nutella Lasagne. Yep, you read correctly. See it in all its glory at Critini’s Southbank branch in Melbourne.

3) Mi Goreng

Mi goreng translates simply as 'fried noodles' in Malay. Those colourfully packaged bad boys are a go to snack, sometimes even a meal replacement. Pimp up your instant noodles at Laksa Bar in Melbourne's CBD. Go for the classic Mee Goreng Mamak or mix it up with a popular mee goreng variation with mild spiced Laksa. Yu-um!

4) Milo

Ah, nostalgia. Coming home from school work and having Milo with milk was the highlight of my childhood adult days. It is still a beloved favourite, but why settle for regular chocolatey milk when you could have a cray cray thick shake (with surprise toppings) at Three One 2 One. Go for a Shake Ya’ Bun with fresh strawberries, Oreo, Nutella and Panda Biscuits on brioche buns. Epic.

5) Potato Crisps

Word on the street is potato crisps are the number 1 ranked favourite snack by Aussies. Swap your average crispy chippys for the real deal; Boso fries with seaweed salt or Katsu curry fries with spring onion at Bosozuku. You'll get the salty hit you're craving but with extra flavours to leave your taste buds bursting with joy. While you’re there, grab a waygu burger to go with it.
