Where to find American Food Favourites in Australia

USA food favourites

Are you missing your favourite American candy bar? What to know where to get USA soda?  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. 

If you are after American fast food places in Australia (including Starbucks) or where are those great American stores in Australia then click the links to get to that information.

Coles Supermarkets

Some Coles Supermarkets will have an international foods aisle or section and sometimes there is a little USA food section.
I’ve seen items like:

  • Dr Pepper
  • Cherry Coke
  • Arizona iced tea
  • Marshmallow Fluff
  • Reese’s
  • Hershey’s
  • Ben and Jerry’s

Woolworths Supermarkets

Most Woolworths have Reese’s products. The Reese’s bars are made in USA but the Reese’s ice cream products are made in Australia by Bulla ice cream. Not that it matters as the ice cream tub is delicious (and gluten free). Woolworths also have a few Hershey products.

Costco

Since Costco is an American store, there are quite a few American products available there but there is also a lot of Australian ones.

The products I have seen or bought include:

  • Swiffer
  • Goldfish Crackers
  • Ruffles chips
  • Reeses
  • Hershey’s
  • Ziploc
  • Sweet Baby Rays
  • Skippy
  • Welches
  • Glad Press’n’Seal
  • In November they have fresh pumpkin pies.

I have a Store Spotlight article on my latest visit to Costco Australia which has a list of American goodies I found.

The Reject Shop

You can often find items like Reeses and Hershey’s here. Stock availability is hit and miss like most items they sell.

Aldi

Aldi usually have a July 4th sale which features some classic USA foods including:

  • Sweet Baby Rays

USA Foods

This is the store I probably use most often, they have a bricks and mortar store in Melbourne but they also offer online ordering. They have a wide range of goodies including:

  • Dr Pepper
  • Cheetos
  • Pop Tarts
  • Swiffer
  • Tide pods
  • Bounce Dryer sheets
  • Miracle Whip

USA Foods is popular and do run out of the popular items often but always use the Notify Me button so you can be notified once they restock and 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.
