Time to start stockpiling snacks for Bathurst and these are my all time favourites.
The Ancient Grain Twist is my new favourite so will definitely be stock piling on those! Thanks OP
Bhuja - yes! :-)
For Bhuja lovers, when no sale at Woolworths/Coles - not so long ago, I discovered this range called Haldiram sold at some Indian grocery shops. They have many types and variations of bhuja snacks, all kinds of flavours, some sweet&sour, sweetish, spicy etc. The shop I went to sells them at 4 packs(150g) any combinations for $6.50, which is very reasonable. Once you know what you want, you can get the bigger packs for greater economy.
Bhuja is much better than haldiram. I tried both.
They both have different varieties, and taste different, it is hard to compare. E.g. there is no equivalent in the Majan range to Haldiram's Khatta Meetha or Navaratan Mix. I like varieties from both.
Problem is haldiram stuff is imported from India and most of the time I found that stock is near to best before. But bhuja is produced here and far more fresh than haldiram
@pyramid: Really? The ones I got are 8mths to over a year, to expiry date. I guess it does depend on how fast the shop moves stock.
@pyramid: You are probably buying the stuff from a wrong store. Few of the largest (and hence fresh inventory) Indian grocery stores are in Western suburbs - Harris Park, Wentworthville, etc. They are extremely busy stores and it's unlikely that you find something near expiry there, sheer due to their high volume of business. More importantly, you don't have to buy if you see it near expiry and lack of air in vacuum packs. :-)
Haldiram's, Bikano, Bikanerwala, Garvi Gujarat, Lehar, etc. are some of the popular Indian snacks brands available in Indian grocery stores here. My favourite is http://i67.tinypic.com/25qzyvl.jpg. It's owned by Pepsico India I believe. Look out for it when you are in Indian store next time. Haven't found snacks like that anywhere in the world, especially with drinks! :)
Thanks, I will indeed, look out for them. I love to try new ones.

Wasn't Haldirams banned by the FDA in the US due to food safety issues? Just googled now..
Thanks for highlighting this … I am checking it out.
Just how some Nestle and Pepsi products were banned in India for a short duration for the similar reasons.
are there ever any hot chicks at bathurst?
Nope, just dudes eating Bhuja mix.
Love you, Paaji!
Will definitely stock up!!! Thanks OP.
Looking for a recommendation of one of these that doesn't taste bitter or like mustard. Really looking for something savoury with a fair amount of salt. Your expertise is appreciated!
Try the beer mix or the original.
Thanks. I don't recall which I've tried before. I'll check those out.
