Question Who the hell is Uncle Toby anyway?

Is it just me or does the name 'Uncle Toby's Hardcourts' sound a little too lax to be the name of an international tennis tournament? It sounds like the players are actually playing in 'Uncle Toby's' backyard.

What type of company is Uncle Toby's? Is it a company at all?

Can any Australians help me out?

OK, is this going to be one of those never-ending threads that keeps answering one question, only to provoke another? Because now that I know a little bit about Uncle Toby, I want to know what the hell are Muesli bars? Must be good stuff if they warrant 6 exclamation points from kim&lleytonrule.

And just to be certain, is porridge soup or something a little different?

Thanks.........

Uncle Toby makes some of the nicest snack foods in Australasia, Im eating one of his Museli Bars at the moment, and it is simply devine.




Museli Bars are mainly a "Health Bar" filled with all sorts of Vitamins and produce, Most have Dried Fruit in them that a mixed with Wheats, Barley, Oats and they taste nice, Toasted Museli is better though.

Thanks, Rasha. Photo and everything! -- OK, so the next obvious question is "What (or where?) in the hell is Australasia?" That's like a combination of Australia and Asia, huh? Or did you just make that up to see if I'd keep asking questions?-- If it weren't the off-season, I wouldn't be learning all of this.

But back to Uncle Tobys... Is that company named for a real person or is he just some ad agency creation like Betty Crocker?
