Totally OT, so I hope I'll be forgiven, but in regards to this comment I sent a tube of Vegemite to a friend in Portland once. HEHE, I had warned her, but the message hadn't got through to the kids. Big surprise indeed.. bigger surprise if those kids ever speak to me again.
On topic, I believe PURE beef balls were the original requisite. Maybe the rules were relaxed to suit the fact that it'd take a pretty big pig belly to wrap some of those puppies.
