10 Special Foods You Didn’t Know Were Unique to South Africa


I was perusing for cool South African food thoughts, and I began to understand that there is a huge amount of extraordinary food that I thought was all inclusive, yet turns out is exceptional to South Africa.

Here are some from my rundown, revel in the extraordinary joys our nation has to bring to the table!

1. Crunchies

Obviously Who knew we were sitting on this secret? Other countries have oatmeal cookies, but nothing as crunchy and simultaneously squishy as our beloved Crunchie.

2. Cremora tart

Yes, you read it here first. If you haven’t made or eaten a Cremora tart you are missing out on a true classic. The bizarre properties of Cremora that allow it to be dissolved in water and then whipped to a foamy cream, the final tart resembles a fridge cheesecake.


3. Peppermint-Crisp-anything

I think it started with Peppermint Crisp tart (layers of crushed biscuits, caramel, whipped cream and crush Peppermint Crisp chocolate), but this distinctive flavour profile has morphed into cocktails, cakes, cheesecakes and more.
