Treats I had in Australia

Starting from the top left corner and going clock-wise are strawberry macarons (it is a minor pet peeve of mine when people mix-up macaroons and macarons), chocolate cake, crepes and fruit salad, and tiny vegan cupcakes (they were surprisingly really tasty).

I tried a crocodile burger for the first time at the Blackbird Cafe in Sydney. Oddly enough it tasted like chicken and had the consistency of tuna.

Lattes from local cafes in Australia taste really fresh and really kick-started my coffee addiction. Wish I could have finished this one, but I knocked it over while talking with my hands.

“Gloria Jean’s” is similar to Starbuck’s and I tried a marshmallow cone from there. It is filled with mini-marshmallows and topped with frosting, chocolate, and sprinkles.  I plan to make some with my little sister eventually. It is a mess/melt-free version of a summertime classic.

Lastly, I made homemade guacamole  and ‘American lemonade’ with a housemate and it was super tasty. In Australia lemonade is like our ‘Sprite’ and is just carbonated lemon-flavored soda.  The ingredients were fresh and considerably cheaper than in America (except lemons; lemons are super expensive there). I miss getting tropical fruits cheaper when I was abroad.
