An Australian Staple? Really???

The first (& last) time i had Vegemite was about 7 years ago.  I can still remember the excitement...humming Men At Work while the bread was toasting...cleansing my palette with unflavored water.  I had the type of jitters you only get on first dates.  So much hype...over so many years...and i was there, finally ready to have at it. 

The toast was now ready.  I rushed my girlfriend "come on, spread it already".  She gently spread a thin coat of Vegemite on my wheat bread and handed it over.  I went in for the kill...

My first bite was  fully (& regretfully) swallowed.  I remember pausing for a few seconds and pondering whether the Vegemite jar I purchased at the adorable Australian delly was expired.  The flavor was intense...but in the worse way I would ever imagine.  A nasty concaucsion of flavors that made my eyes water.  I took a step back and threw the remainder of the toast in the garbage.  A sad realization took over...Vegemite was awful. 

I didn't rate it a -5 is because my cat ended up licking the jar a bit when i placed it on the floor.  But after a few seconds, even he stepped away with a confused look on his face.  We had trust issues since that day.

readers note - do not operate heavy machinery while trying Vegemite.

Seriously- it is not good. I wish I could be more "cultured" but hell- I like A LOT of different foods- but not this. Nice review Vo, I will ignore some of the words you made up.
