Aussie ladies

I just filled up the car at Woolies petrol and inside the shop they were now selling Ben and Jerrys pints! I didn't buy any because I had to run to the actual Woolies after but they did not have it in store. I am guessing that it may arrive in the stores since they were selling it at the petrol station. Hopefully?

I don't know if anyone else will be excited by this but it makes me happy!

Re: Aussie ladies

  • That is exciting! I'll keep my eyes open for it in the stores.

  • Yeah, I think I'm just going to stop reading threads/posts from you guys.  I'm tired of learning about everything available to everyone else in Oz but me :-(

    I also found out today that NSW has 7-11's!

    It might come up there too!

    You don't have 7-11 there? All the Mobil gas stations have now turned into 7-11 here. I'm not sure why though.

    I doubt it.  We only get what "they" decide we might want.  So if you have 12 options on a product, we might only have four of those.

    I might even end up down that way to buy my stove/oven.  I want an oven that has a digital temp setting/ read out.  While they do not sell them up here (well one oven had it, but it was a $3k oven), I truly believe it must be sold somewhere in OZ, as this form of "technology" has been around for a looong time, and not only on high end products.  My 20 year old GE stove in the states has a digital temp setting!

    Interesting, I didn't know all that.  

    Our oven is not digital.  I can take a look for you next time I am in a store with ovens/appliances if you want.

    That would be great if you could look.  I am tired of having to guess where 185 C is located in that 1/4 inch between 170 and 200 on the dial numbers.

    Haha, too true!

    No worries, I will check it out and let you know!

    To say nothing of the fact that the thermostat on your oven may be off.  Mine is off by 15-20 degrees.  I bought an oven thermometer -- a dual scale one so I can use my US cookbooks without converting.

  • AMrsin09, we have 7-11 here in Brizzy. When are you going to hop on a plane and get down here for a slurpee?

    LOL!  H works pretty hard to keep me out of the big cities.  He knows the chances of getting me back up here would not be good.

  • I'm the odd woman out here. I don't really care about Ben and Jerry's or 7/11s. But I am thrilled that we are getting a Big W down here next year. It's fun watching the construction. :)
