I popped into WarrSugFix today (Warringah Mall Sugar Fix) and purchase many a item,

I got some twizzlers, some apple soft drink and about four packs of pop tarts!

They also offer online sales I believe..http://www.sugarfix.com.au/

Hmm. Might go back there tomorrow. Might buy some more apple fanta. And clearly leave two cans there :P

And mmmmmmm pop tarts. I wish there was somewhere in canberra that had them. (Heck, i'd personally drive..yes thats right i have my p's! to gungahlin to get them!)

City Interchange IGA now has pop-tarts, and they have a LOT of them. I only saw 2 packs (i.e. not the boxes of 5) but they had a bunch of flavours. They were between the deli and the checkouts.

Yes they are, have been there for Ages. They also now stock a range of Bluebird New Zealand 'Crisps' and other snacks, along with other types of Pringles like Roast Baked Potato, Barbeque and others. They have a chocolate bar from Cadbury that is New Zealand as bro, in the shape of a thong I believe.

Hawker has a range of American sweets including Hershey's and Peanut Butter Cups. The drinks they stock include DR Pepper, Cherry Coke, Strawberry Fanta and another Fanta that is in a yellow can.

Yellow?

Any chance you can check that out and let us know what flavour? Passionfruit was always my favourite Fanta, and Pineapple is awesome too. If its either one of those I may have to go out there and get some.

Pineapple I believe is the Yellow can. Do you know, Zac, if it is Indonesian (Will have Rasa written on the can), Hong Kong, British or American?

At Rockdale Station on a platform vending machine they have Raspberry Fanta in 600ml bottles. Yummy.

Nasty
Unpleasent
Distasteful
Repellent
Uninviting

Just to add to that list.

And as I asked Zac, Snrub old bean, what country is the said Pineapple Fanta from? I went down and grabbed a few can's of A&W Cream Soda from East Row IGA and boy howdy do I love that stuff. Guru and Stretch both tried 'Dirty' brand chips, only for the Guru to comically declare "Where's the flavour?"

Went to isabella today, and found said chocolate and such.
They were sold out of everything except junior mints and hersheys.
Richardson doesnt have anything, im positively sure...they didnt have cherry coke/dr pepper .etc, so im guessing not.

Bus 400 - i totally agree! Cherry is not a nice flavour for a drink...I wish someone would make my patent pending orange coke....

Seriously try it, get one postmix coke and add one orange slice and stir, its a really nice flavour

I, along with many Americans and Europeans, find that Cherry is a nice flavour to drink.

A list of coka flavours can be found in the Coke Wiki article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coca-Cola

In the Supabarn part of the canberra centre, there is an open lollie stand that has been there for a few weeks now.

It kind of reminds me of the lollie shop that was in belco until about 1992.

It looks like you pick what you want into a bag, then it gets weighed, then you pay.

I haven't actually checked it out properly as I don't eat lollies that often.

I know the one you are talking about, and I am sure T3 in Sydney now has one of these aswell. When I went past the price shocked me, so I stayed well clear.
