• I just dont get that either.. I tasted something called marmite (which apparently tastes like vegemite) at one of my friends' house once, and I dont think I've ever wanted to puke my throat up like back then..
  • Vegemite is absolutely delicious. Esp on toast with lots of butter. I eat it straight out of the jar.
  • Whats the deal?!?! It is GREAT!! You spread it on those biscuits with the little holes then you squish it and make Vegemite worms (all you Aussies will know what I'm talking about). Or on toast soldiers, then dipped in egg, or even straight out of the jar!! MMMMM I'm going to go get some right now!
  • Some friends in NZ sent me some and I tried it. You will love it if you think beef boullion dissolved on a piece of toast would taste good. It very much resembles that flavor to me except a little bitter, and not salty enough.
  • i'm not an aussie but oh my god i love vegemite... i had it for lunch today : ) with cheese on a sandwhich...yummmmmmmmmmmmm
  • yeh, it's really that good :D i could eat it straight out of the jar!! :D
  • It's an acquired taste. I could not acquire it. It tastes absolutely horrid to me. In fact, it's offensive to all my senses. But some people LOVE it, it's crazy - one of those things people love or hate, nobody seems to be a fence-sitter on this one.
  • Vegemite is a dark brown savoury food paste made from yeast extract, used mainly as a spread on sandwiches, toast and cracker biscuits, as well as a filling of pastries like Cheesymite scroll, in Australia and New Zealand. It is similar to British and New Zealand Marmite and to Swiss Cenovis. Vegemite is made from leftover brewers' yeast extract, a by-product of beer manufacture, and various vegetable and spice additives. The taste may be described as salty, slightly bitter, and malty - somewhat similar to the taste of beef bouillon. The texture is smooth and sticky, much like peanut butter. It is not as intensely flavoured as Marmite and it is less sweet than the New Zealand version of Marmite. Vegemite is popular with many Australians and New Zealanders, who commonly consider it a national food and a cultural icon. It can be found in shops around the world, particularly where there are large populations of Australian expatriates. Vegemite has not been successfully marketed in other countries, apart from New Zealand, and has failed to catch on in the United States, despite being owned by US food giant Kraft Foods. When seen in the United States, the Vegemite label often does not contain the Kraft logo.
  • I love Vegemite! It tastes really good on toast with butter. Its an icon to me just like the kangaroo and koala. And yeah its really that good. I have like 50 jars of it in my kitchen!
  • G'day Snakelover, Thank you for your question. I don't mind it. It tastes good on your toast with some butter or margarine. Regards
  • Haven't had it for years, but when I was young, we used to put it on Ry-Vita crackers with butter, and squeeze it through the holes in the crackers....yumm
  • When I was younger my mother had to take the jar off of me, else I'd keep dipping my fingers in and eating it! Of course I don't do that now. I use a spoon instead.
  • Okay, I'm not an Aussie, but I love it. :) I's just...good! hehe. I think it might have been because my 3rd grade teacher was Australian and that's one of the things she told us about.
  • Is that sort of like Vitameatavegimin?
