Where You Will Find American Food Favourites in Australia (bricks & mortar and online)
Where to buy your favourite American food and groceries in Australia
Are you missing your favourite American candy bar? What to know where to get USA soda? What about your favourite American Cereal? Where can you buy USA groceries and food in Australia?
Thankfully there are some stores here in Australia that sell USA groceries and foods either in store or online or both. After the nation wide stores, I’ve divided the stores into Australian states and most of these outlets ship online as well.
Your Favourite America Products and Where to Buy Them
Here is a list of the most popular USA grocery items listed A-Z with where to find them. Stock levels are ever changing so something might be sold out when you go to that particular store. A tip, especially for the small businesses is to sign up to their newsletters or follow them on social media as they love to share when they get the goodies in. (please note: this is continually being updated but if you don’t see your favourite product here feel free to reach out and I’ll do my best to find out for you)

Since Costco is an American store, there are quite a few American products available there but there is also a lot of Australian ones.
I have a Store Spotlight article on my latest visit to Costco Australia which has a list and some photos of American goodies I found.
IGA / Foodworks / Independent Supermarkets
Many IGA’s or similar across Australia have an International Section for USA items. Usually there isn’t a large range but you can often get items.
It would be worth checking your local independent supermarket to see what they have. If they don’t have want you want, it might be worth chatting to the manager and seeing if they can get what you want in – especially if you are going to be a regular buyer of that item.
Victoria and Tasmania
I have used USA Foods quite a few times through online shopping. They also have a bricks and mortar store in Melbourne but they also offer online ordering.
USA Foods is popular and do run out of the popular items often but always use the Notify Me button on the product you want so you can be notified once they restock.
If you order online they can take a little while to ship. USA Foods have several promotions during the year as well as Black Friday.
This store has only bricks and mortar locations:
- 157 Ryrie Street, Geelong, Victoria
- 85A Chapel Street, Windsor, Victoria
- 157B Brisbane Street, Launceston, Tasmania
New South Wales
USA Candy Factory
You can shop in store at Miranda in New South Wales and online. I have been to the store itself and had a great time browsing the goodies. It isn’t a huge store but they still have a great variety of items
I came across this store while searching the internet one day. It looks amazing! Parry’s is located at: Shop 13/347 Kingsway Caringbah, New South Wales. It’s described on Facebook as a 1950s milk bar with shakes and lollies from USA, UK and Europe.
Australian Capital Territory
Bruce Super Convenience
Location: 121/10 Thynne Street, Bruce, ACT. They also sell online.
I’ve placed a few orders with them to try them now and I was happy with the speed of delivery as well as the goodies available for sale. I loved that they have seasonal items and the owner often does snack reviews on Instagram and Facebook.
They do have a reward system, when you order you can earn points and also when you refer someone, you can earn $ off as well. My referral code if you’d like to use it is here. (Thank you!)
The Candy Crew
Location: Shop 2/46 The Esplanade, Paradise Point, (Gold Coast), Qld. They also offer online shopping.
