Colene Pefley Vegemite always reminds me of that song, "I believe in a land down under" lol. I have never actually tasted vegemite or even know what is in it. I wonder if they sell it at the grocery store by me.
Juli Greenspan I would be willing to try it at least once just to say that I tried it. But it truly seems like something one would have to acquire a taste to, and I don't know if I would want to go back for seconds, song or no song.
Sandra Hodge My ex Mother in law was from Australia and that is where Vegemite comes from. It is some kind of vegetable paste and they eat it on toast. It looks and smells yucky, but I have never tasted it.
Helene Malmsio Its such a pity that Ozzies tend to use Vegemite like a torture test for innocent visitors too!
If anyone ever smears a THICK layer of black paste on your toast, just tell them you know what they are up to and you're not falling for it! Vegemite should have just a very fine smear of vegemite on it, just enough to give it a golden glow. Then as you acquire the taste for this salty treat, you can always increase the amount on your toast.
On a fresh bread & cheese sandwich you can have it spread a bit thicker, but you should always be able to glimpse the butter below the vegemite (or Marmite) layer.
Debra Fraley We had friends come over to visit us several years ago from Australia and they really missed their Vegemite! They didn't bring any along because they said it was an acquired taste and they knew we wouldn't like it.
