I have heard such a lot about Vegemite, but living in Europe, I have not had a chance to try it. I cannot even imagine how it could taste like, even though I read about its ingredients on Wikipedia!

Now that I'm living in Australia, I see this everywhere. I am not a fan of the stuff, but the kids I watch adore it. Perhaps if I had tried it when I was younger, I may have liked it.

I think I've tried vegemite before and did not like it at all. I'm visiting Australia in about a week though so maybe I'll give it another shot.

I have heard of this, but, really do not know what it is. It was mentioned in a Men at Work song in the 90's. I have also heard that it is an acquired taste.

What is a vegemite? I have never heard about this nor seen this here in my place. It doesn't look like appetizing.

I'm not sure how to describe the taste, but I do know vegemite is something most Australians love. Similar to marmite maybe?

I have never tired this before, but the look of it does not really tempt me to be honest! What does it taste like?

I was happy to find a large jar of vegemite in the store once. I screamed to myself in joy. People around me kept saying "Eww, vegemite!" haha

I have had this a few times, I do like it, but I am just not in the mood for it very often, plus it is quite difficult to get in the UK and it is far easier to get marmite or other yeast extracts.

I have never tried vegemite. I have heard of it, but would not even know what it tastes like or if it was good.

I've heard of this thing, but have never tasted it. It reminds of Marmite, which is really not for everyone. I imagine it doesn't taste much different.

It is a lot like marmite, but a bit thicker, and is very slightly different in taste, not quite as sharp if I remember correctly. But if you like marmite, you will probably like vegemite

I think the look or the colour of this spread puts me off. I have never tried it but does not look great.

I have never tried this before but I have heard of it. What does it taste like? It does not look that appealing. I am not sure if it still popular or not.

I have had Marmite but not Vegemite. Aren't they really similar in taste but happen to have a different name?

I think its similar, Vegemite is an Aussie food, and we love to put it on our bread....YUM....man im still hungry. Vegemite is made out of leftover brewers' yeast extract. They say its similar

I have no idea what this is besides it is commonly used in Australia. I mean as in tastes and how it's used. I see it mostly on bread but I have heard several good and bads on it. I am anxious to try it!

vegemite is by no way on par with marmite and a poor copy, marmite is richer, saltier and beefier by far

I have never had vegemite, I don't even know what it's made of, just that it's an Australian thing. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't find it in a store around here.

I've never had vegemite. It looks like some sort of strange black spread. Anyone who has had it, what similar taste would you compare it to?..

Weird. I never would have thought. I can imagine it easily with that description. I like soy sauce on fried rice and other things, but like syrup? I won't knock it until I try it for myself. Thanks!

I heard about vegemite it scares me, all the reviews say it taste awful. It has to be an acquired taste. Doesn't look so good.

I prefer Vegemite over Marmite. It can be difficult to find, at least here in Canada, you can't find it in any regular grocery store. You have to look in specialty food shops for it.

Most Aussies are reared on Vegemite as children. I find that most adults who try Vegemite for the first time are usually the people who strongly dislike the flavour, however, most kids love the stuff, and grow up eating it.
