Trendy wine bar sparks debate by putting a $10 Heinz canned spaghetti jaffle on the menu: “Idiots will overpay for anything”
- Sydney pub sells Jaffles spaghetti for $10
- Bar said jaffles were the ‘quintessential comfort food’
- A can of Heinz spaghetti costs $2 in supermarkets
Aussies are divided by a $10 Jaffle Heinz spaghetti being sold in a fancy Sydney pub, with some arguing they could make it at home for 49 pence.
The jaffles are sold at Lil Sis, a stylish wine bar located in The Abercrombie hotel in inner Sydney.
The bar serves three flavors of jaffle; triple cheese, pastrami and Heinz canned spaghetti and calls them the “quintessential comfort food.”
‘It feels like a hug, it tastes like home. We think jaffles make the ultimate comfort food, especially after a few wines.
Among a variety of deli selections, the bar serves three jaffles; one triple cheese, one pastrami and the other Heinz canned spaghetti (pictured)
‘Three to choose from, served until dawn.’
While the wine bar, inspired by the ‘charming cave à vins’ found in Parisian neighborhoods, has only received good reviews online, some internet users questioned why the iconic Aussie snack could cost $10.
A can of Heinz canned spaghetti currently costs $2 at Coles and Woolworths.
One man said it was proof that “idiots will overpay for anything.”
“Put the same can of spaghetti on the same bread and sell it at St Mary’s (Cathedral) for $2 and these same people won’t touch it,” he said.
Another internet user said that preparing the meal at home would cost about 49 cents.
‘I grew up on spaghetti jaffles, I’m 50 and I still love them! Not sure if I’d pay $10 for one, though a kebab can still win at that price after a few drinks,” wrote another.

“Any port in a storm after a few drinks and spaghetti will be fine,” said a third.
One woman joked that people missed the point.
‘A canned spaghetti jaffle costs 49 cents. What we have here is something completely different. It is the Jaffeule Aux Spaghettoire A La Cylindre Du Fer Heinz,” he said.
‘A gourmet delight well worth the money.’
