    We used to say port as well, we had port racks outside our classroom to put them on.

    As for kabana v cabanossi, I think they are two different types of sausage?
    Yep, it was always a case of 'Uniquey, go and put your Port in/on the Port Racks'.

    Cheerios - Queenslanders are referring to the little red Cocktail Frankfurts, whereas southern states probably think we're talking about the Cereal?

    Words I find weird, esky (yay for racial slurs), thongs (you're wearing a g-string on your foot?), swimmers (togs, they are TOGS), icy poles (ice BLOCKS), textas (another one I think is a brand maybe? They are felt-tipped pens people), oh and wtf is a sanga?
    Sanga is a sandwich lol

    Which Victorians?!?- I'm googling that.

    Otherwise grew up in Vic and I'd call them poppers and pop tops. Although occasionally I've called pop tops poppers and poppers juice boxes.

    Things with some portion of juice inside them.
