Fussy ways Aussies like to eat Weet-Bix

1 month ago 20

Aussie kids might be Weet-Bix kids, but it turns out many adults are like very fussy children when it comes to exactly we like to eat them.

A post on Facebook has revealed the very precise habits of Weet-Bix fans, with many of us divided on the question: to crush or not to crush?

Blogger Aldi Mum asked her more than 186,000 Facebook followers how they liked their Weet-Bix over the weekend.

“What is the correct way to eat Weet-Bix?” she asked. “Leave the bricks whole or crush them up?”

The question attracted more than 100 comments, with answers revealing people had quite specific methods when it came to preparing their Weet-Bix.

“Hot water over them to soften, bit of sugar and then milk, enough so it’s not sticky and dry but also so it’s not soup. Then crush,” one person wrote.

“I leave them in small amount of milk with 1 tea spoon of sugar,” another commented. “They have to be crunchy, hate soggy weeties lol.”

“Dampen them down with boiling water then honey and milk. It’s the only way I can eat them,” one comment read.

“Whole, with cold milk and eaten fast enough so they aren’t too soggy,” another said.

“As a child I’d eat them crumbled with milk and a sprinkle of milk and warmed in the microwave.”

One person sat across both camps, explaining that they liked their Weet-Bix “broken up, not crushed and not soggy” while others went without any kind of milk.

“Eat them like a biscuit with butter and strawberry jam,” one person suggested, while another commented: “Cut in half lengthwise and topped with butter and vegemite.”

Weet-Bix first appeared on store shelves back in 1928 and an ad campaign during the 1960s encouraged young Aussies to eat them with hot milk to give them “vim and vigour”.

In 1985 the “Aussie kids are Weet-Bix kids” song first appeared alongside the cereal, with its iconic blue and red packaging also introduced around the same time.

Today many of us have far from traditional tastes when it comes to the cereal, with some people getting very creative with their Weet-Bix:
