America’s Confused Reaction To Fairy Bread
It seems that there’s a resurgent interest in Fairy Bread in Australia lately, especially after the US caught wind of our delicious national treasure. They just don’t seem to get it! Check out what some American publications have written about Fairy Bread recently:
- "Fairy bread, which Aussies also call “fairy toast”
epicurious. I for one have never called it ‘fairy toast’. They also claim it’s a breakfast foodI don’t think any Aussie mums of young children would agree with that.
- “Unlike many bread spreads, stacking pieces of fairy bread on top of each other without pieces sticking together is possible, due to the sprinkles themselves.” – tenrandomfacts. I’ve never heard of a fairy bread stack, although it’s probably not a bad idea.
- “To be entirely honest, it doesn’t sound that appetising to us. Plain white bread? Hard, crunchy sprinkles? Nope, not feeling it.” – Metro. Whatever you say…
- “It makes sense. Why go to the effort of baking your child a real cake on their birthday when you can smear some butter on a slice of bread and tip a few coloured balls of sugar on there?” – Munchies. They’re probably right, it is darn easy to make.
