Today's Aussie food institution item is a biscuit that I grew up with... and I loved so much I could devour a whole packet on my own! Today unfortunately they are bit too sweet for me... and I swear they are not quite the same as they were in the 1970's!
It's made by biscuit company Arnott’s, an Australian food institution itself and now a subsidiary of U.S.-based Campbell Soup Company. Previously known as Iced Vo-Vo biscuits, the brand was first registered in 1906.
On 24 November 2007, the Australian Prime Minister at the time, Kevin Rudd, made a light-hearted mention of Iced VoVos in his election victory speech, jokingly urging his team to have a strong cup of tea with an Iced VoVo before getting to work. This reportedly led to skyrocketing Iced VoVo sales, prompting Arnott's to send a shipping pallet of the biscuits to the Prime Minister's office in Canberra's New Parliament House.
So there you go... That's it from me for this month's Alphabet Club post... I am now going to have a strong cup of tea (the only way to drink tea!) and a Iced VoVo to celebrate it being Saturday and I managed to get to Detention on time for a change!!
Hooroo for now! Happy Stitching!
