Since then, I’ve tried ‘Aussie Crunch’ sold in several different sandwich shops. It’s just not the same. It’s often too thick, too dry or has chocolate with no taste. The genuine article is quite thin with firm edges and a slightly chewy centre. It has plenty of chocolate too. Please note, it should not break your teeth.
It seems I am not alone in my quest. Since posting the recipe, Horwich has stirred. It’s like everyone just remembered. I’ve already heard reports of it being made by followers on Twitter, by Amanda at Thyme Deli, Kay at The Salad Bowl and further chit chat reported in Greeley’s Butchers and Hair Associates… it even caught the attention of the local press. More and more people are tweeting me to say they’re making it at the weekend.
We have an Aussie Crunch revival on our hands. Long live the happy memories it recalls, and may more people discover it. I’d love to know if you’ve made it, and what comes flooding back! If you’re trying it for the first time, let me know what you think. Make sure you post your pictures on Twitter too!
