Aussies are baffled by ‘odd’ supermarket snack on shelves: ‘Surely these aren’t meant to be eaten together’
- Customers are sharing their confusion over a Primo snack pack
- It includes ham or twiggy sticks, cheese and a hundreds and thousands biscuit
- Online people are debating whether the items are meant to be eaten together
Shoppers have been left scratching their heads after discovering a strange item on the supermarket shelf.
A woman spotted a snack pack from Primo that contained cubes of cheese and ham or salami sticks as well as a hundreds and thousands biscuit.
She shared her confusion over the oddly-paired snacks in a post to Reddit while food blogger Russ Eats rated the $4.25 buy a one out of 10.
‘Please tell me these aren’t intended to be eaten all together,’ she said in the post.

Many in the comments said they were also baffled by the item after seeing it in the supermarket fridges while some were outraged it only included one biscuit.
‘I saw one of those and had to back up down the aisle to make sure I was seeing this s*** correctly. Laughed and then kept walking,’ one person wrote.
‘I’m so confused by this, shouldn’t the biscuits be crackers? I mean, this whole thing IS crackers!!’ a second replied.
‘I’m more upset at the audacity of providing only one biscuit per pack. Who in the history of this fine nation has ever eaten JUST ONE Hundreds and Thousands biscuit?’ a third pointed out.
But not everyone was put off by the bizarre snack with one user saying: ‘Yeah that’s an…odd combo. Kind of want to try it now’.
I’m gonna eat the s*** outta these,’ another said.
‘My kids favourite sandwich combo is ham and peanut butter, so he’d probably eat this too,’ one mum laughed.
‘There must be a market for it or they wouldn’t produce it.. maybe that market is weirdo kids like mine. Looks pretty foul to me though.’
A debate was also ignited as people were unsure if the three foods were meant to be eaten together.

‘I was literally having this conversation in store the other day with family. The picture is sending a mixed message if it isn’t the intention,’ one foodie said.
‘Some of my friends said the biscuit is for dessert but I really feel like it’s suggesting they all go together,’ the poster responded.
‘Especially since the other packs have a Jatz cracker or similar in them! And besides, what savage eats their ham and cheese without crackers?’
A similar augment was started below a TikTok clip from last year of Russ, known online as Russ Eats, reviewing the snack pack.

‘This has to be a p*** take…This was four bucks, I’ve got to try it, it can’t be good,’ he said in the video
Russ ‘fully loaded’ the sweet biscuit with the ham and cheese before eating it and rating it a one out of 10.
He was puzzled the pack only contained one biscuit and lots of ham and cheese.
‘The ratios are all off how’s this going to fit on that…I’ve fully loaded it but look how much is left – they didn’t do the maths on this,’ he said.
One commenter said they thought the items were meant to be eaten separately but Russ wasn’t convinced.
‘The picture shows them about to be stacked ON the biscuit,’ he replied.
‘This combo cracks me up. And putting the biscuits in the middle tray really makes me think they mean eat it all together,’ one viewer said.
‘I’m pregnant and this sounds amazing,’ laughed another.
