Finding Australian Groceries

There’s so much to like about the food in New York but when you’re feeling a little homesick, finding Australian groceries can be a godsend.

Every time we go home, we stock up a whole suitcase full of favorites from back home. But between trips, over the course of the last three years, we have collated (and will continue to add to) a master list of the places that stock the Australian essentials you will inevitably find yourself missing. Most groceries are available for purchase at stores and if not, online.

The booty from our most recent visit. If only they sold Smarties blocks here

Chocolates and Lollies

We’ve all got those favorites from back home. Most can be found in one form or another. The Cadbury’s you’ll find in most shops and delis is actually American made and is quite disgusting. The British version is available if you know where to look – and now you do. Around Easter, you can even get some half decent Easter eggs from Myers of Keswick in the West Village.
