Vanilla slices at 40 paces

The Victorian Mallee town of Ouyen, which boasts that it is the home of that great Australian contribution to the world's cuisine the vanilla slice, has been split asunder by a bitter dispute between the Ouyen Bakery and the Mallee Cafe. My culinary informant learned of the ructions after making a lengthy detour last Sunday to purchase the original item only to find the Bakery shut. At the Mallee Cafe the only custard laden delicacy had been bought in from Robinvale. Premier John Brumby must insist that this dispute is settled!
