Things the Aussies claim as their own but which they have really stolen off the Kiwis

26 items ranked

Pavlova Report Abuse
A meringue type dessert named after the famous Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova. Recently proved by the Oxford dictionary to have originated from NZ with recipes from the 1920s, while the Aussies can only produce recipes for this dessert from the 1940s.

Kiwi's do have to move to Aussie sometimes, but in our graves we don't deserve to be labeled Aussies. I am sorry Australians are not proud to be Australian for honest reasons. M

The beginning of the meat pie can be traced back to the Neolithic Period around 9500 BC to the ancient Egyptians where rustic ancient pies were known as galettes. Galettes were oat, wheat, rye, and barley concoctions filled with honey and baked over hot coals

Invented in 1920 in Brisbane as a replacement to the granrose biscuit from nz, because the granrose was apparently disgusting

Also funny how you say it was developed in the 1920's when Newzealand already had it .!! " Sanitarium's original wheat biscuit, Granose, was marketed in New Zealand during the early 1900s, not only as a breakfast cereal but also as an alternative to bread" Aussies just steal everything then try & cover it up PINEAPPLE LUMPS ARE ALSO OURS

Developed, but was produced and sold first in newzealand! plus sanitarium was founded by a newzealand guy david halsey so regardless NEWZEALAND
