Aussie Man's Biscuit Tradition Goes Viral Online
There are weird Australian food traditions that would make people from other countries recoil.
We chuck 100s and 1,000s on bread and call it Fairy Bread, we lather celery sticks with peanut butter and lap up the sweet and savoury taste, and we cover seemingly everything in chicken salt.
But one man has discovered his little culinary delight is shared by thousands of people across the country.
Jayden Wright posted a photo of him lathering butter onto a classic Arnott's Milk Arrowroot biscuit onto a Facebook group and was met with loads of replies.
According to News Corp, there were more than 470 comments and 1700 reactions on Jayden's post. Loads of people said they too like to whack a bit of butter on the tasty treat and make a buttery sandwich.
One person wrote: "When I was a kid I did this also with Vegemite. These days I still put margarine on Milk Coffee biscuits, Scotch Finger biscuits & Nice biscuits."
Another added: "Oh yum! I'm weird I will also sometimes add cheese. Or I've had peanut butter on them. I love Milk Arrowroot."
However, the post wasn't exactly met with universal acclaim and praise.

One person seemed disgusted at the inclusion of butter, writing: "That's just so decadent. I used to slather them with strawberry jam, trying to make knock-off jam fancies."
Another user said: "Boomers be like 'Millennials waste their money on avocado' then have this for a snack."
Look, Jayden's picture does show a lot of butter but hey, who are we to judge.The butter backlash is similar to the outcry that happened when Tom Hanks uploaded a picture of him tucking into a heart serving of Vegemite on toast.
He wrote on Facebook: "We're home now and, like the rest of America, we carry on with sheltering in place and social distancing. Many, many thanks to everyone in Australia who looked after us.
"Their care and guidance made possible our return to the USA. And many thanks to all of you who reached out with well wishes."
But the there was a lot of the black stuff on his toast and people read him for filth, arguing that that amount would certainly leave a rough taste in your mouth.
Hey, each to their own.
