Aussies Have A New Favourite Family Meal, According To Coles

If you LOVE you some of mum’s bolognese, or your weekly chicken roast, you’re certainly not alone.

You’d even be forgiven for thinking it was Australia’s favourite family meal - they’re THAT popular, and THAT delicious.

But it appears Aussies have a new National dish - and to be honest, it’s not exactly fitting.

According to Coles, Aussies are tucking into tacos at RECORD levels.

Yep, the token Mexican dish is being devoured by Aussies far and wide, who Coles say bought more than 1600 tonnes of tacos, burritos, enchiladas and fajitas just last year.


According to Google Trends data, searches for tacos overtook spaghetti and roast chicken about 18 months ago.

“We have noticed Aussie families love Mexican food, and they love Old El Paso with its popularity growing by more than 10 per cent in the past two years,” Coles chief customer officer Simon McDowell said in a statement.

And there’s good news for you taco-loving fiends out there,too.

Coles is cutting the price of some Old El Paso products by up to 26 per cent.

They’re also cutting the price of its 500g beef mince by 8 per cent.
