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.

Has anyone tried Vegemite turned into a hot drink? I have heard of Bovril as a hot drink and wondered if Vegemite would lend itself to it?

I like Vegemite but prefer the texture of Marmite when spreading it on toast. Vegemite is great when used with peanut butter.

I love this stuff on hot toast, its really yummy, but its one of them things you either love or hate it.

I totally agree it's great on hot toast! My parents don't like it so never bought Vegemite as I was growing up. It is only in adulthood that I have discovered and loved it.

I've never had Vegemite. I don't know if we can buy in the grocery stores in the US. If they are available, I surely would like to try

I love Marmite and just added it to my porridge today. I am thinking they are similar to Vegemite or are actually the same thing since they look alike.

Although Marmite and Vegemite taste similar I find the texture of Vegemite to be much thicker and Marmite runnier - I find Marmite easier to spread.

That is interesting to know, thank you for sharing. I find Marmite relatively easy to spread. Maybe Vegemite will be good for adding into soups or other liquids.

I only heard of this because of the band Men At Work and their song land down under. what does it taste like? is it sweet it looks like syrup or dark jelly

I do not know if Vegemite is in the grocery store here or not. I have never heard of it, or never looked for it before at the store.

I have a long time friend in Australia and she has told me about this stuff. She said its one of those things that you either love or hate (she said to her it tastes yeasty). Im thinking it would taste terrible but I have never tried it.

Lol My friends from Australia always try to get me to try this and I always say no thanks . How they explain the taste sort of made me sick lol. All for vitamins and healthy food but it's how they explained it to me that turned me off. Now I tried their pavlova and loved it!!! I may be strong one day and give it a go knowing me

From what I hear, vegemite and marmite are purified forms of yeast protein, rich in B vitamins. Also, they seem to be popular in Straya, according to Rocket Power

Oh. I had no idea what this was beforehand, I just associated it with the stereotype of being loved by Australians. Have you ever tried it?

Not even once. I was curious several years back, around the time that Rocket Power was on the air, and I decided to learn about this type of product.
People seem to like it, but as an acquired taste. It seems pretty healthy, actually.

Lauren, I'm an Australian and I love vegemite and yes it is healthy Bea, it has vitamins that I know of, not sure what else but in moderation it is healthy for us and tastes great.

I have ever heard of this stuff. I had thought this was a topic for that devise that makes noodles out of vegetables but I see that it is not lol

Vegemite is something of an acquired taste. I still hate it to this day but I have heard that if you grow up with vegemite then you will like it.

I grew up with vegemite and still love it today. It's the only spread I like except Nutella, that's delicious too. I once liked cheese spread but not anymore. My kids love vegemite too.
