Childhood Fave Musk Sticks Are Being Featured In A ‘Disgusting Food Museum’ Overseas & Aussies Are Furious
It hurts me deep in my soul to say this but the staple Aussie lolly, musk sticks, are currently being featured in the ‘Most Disgusting Food’ museum in Sweden. Where is the RESPECT?!
While Vegemite also makes a cameo inside the museum, it is the inclusion of the humble musk stick that has Aussies absolutely losing it on Twitter.
How could anyone not enjoy the crunchy, chewy, lightly musked, sweet sticks that starred in most Aussie childhoods? A kids’ party was incomplete without a bag of these bad boys.

It turns out these Australia-made sweets have been in the Swedish museum since November, however many Twitter users have only recently noticed.
Aussies are rightly pissed Sweden would reject musk sticks.
I’ll lead the force, musk sticks are my favourite!

I had no idea there were people that didn't like musk sticks. I honestly thought they were universally adored! https://t.co/ALqmhZqivZ

I've been daydreaming about these ever since I read the article this morning about how they're like eating granny's perfume. pic.twitter.com/CmEFrWman1

Australians are genuinely mystified when people say musk sticks are disgusting.
Mind you, the old recipe is gross. Natural musk (from a deer's anus) and ambergris (whale vomit). These days it's all yummy artificial chemicals. https://t.co/Zn1mTbv9n4

Shots have been fired.
Musk sticks are delicious. They are pink. They are sweet. And I'm not sharing with anyone in Sweden. Fuck Sweden.

And Sweden can talk. They have this disgusting rotten fish in cans that is an iconic food. I started throwing up just on the smell!

If you don’t like musk sticks I’m deeply suspicious of you.

End the hate.#MuskSticks and black jelly beans are the most underrated lollies out there and if you don't like them I'm guessing you're probably stuck on a lower rung of the evolution ladder with people who eat pineapple on pizza and listen to Coldplay.https://t.co/R6iryZ3GHI
