weetabix ?

Recommended Posts

Weetbix was invented by an Australian in the 1920's. The same guy later started a new company in South Africa registered in England, and developed Weetabix in 1932. They put the "A" in the name to differentiate it from the Aussie version. Weetabix is the knockoff, albeit invented by the same Australian guy.

 

Some accuracy for those who want to start a race war over kiddies breakfast cereal.

It was invented in New Zealand, but as usual, a bloody sneaky Aussie comes along and pilfers the idea, just like they did with the pavlova. We called it Wheat Biscuits because we know how to spell.

Switched from Weetabix to Weetbix because it has less sugar added.
Nothing to do with the price?

One word out of two spelt correctly is probably good enough for a Kiwi.

Weetbix, the Aussie one,  is huge in NZ they were even major sponsors for the All Blacks!

However it seems the advertising ditty "Aussie Kids are Weetbix Kids" probably originated as "Kiwi Kids are Weetbix Kids".

as usual with these things, Aussie's may have had the idea first (they have very few of them) , but it took a Brit to produce the final product, Now as for the relative merits of Vegemite and Marmite.......  that is for another day, and post.

My local supermarket deleted a lot of imported lines a few months ago so cleared out all the Original Weet-Bix at only 50 baht. On my last box now. They still stock the Kids version which is okay, even lower in sugar and sodium than Original. Add some blueberries, banana or strawberries, dash of cinnamon and flaked almonds, ends up pretty tasty.

I have a box - given the laws of supply & demand its the OP's for a mere THB 10,000 including delivery & a smile.

 

FFF - certainly has it, call or facebook them to check and I am sure I got my last box in Central
