Meanwhile, in the video shared by Johnson, he said that he "wants a world in which we [the UK] send you Marmite, you [Australia] send us Vegemite."
He followed this by saying, "we send you Penguins and you send us, with reduced tariffs, these wonderful Arnott's Tim Tams."
"How long can the British people be deprived of the opportunity to have Arnott's Tim Tams at a reasonable price?"
But Twitter users were left baffled as to why something as trivial as Tim Tams were being discussed in Johnson's address.
