An Australian Staple? Really???

  • May 6, 2009

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.

Jar of Vegemite
  So what is vegemite – hmm well it is made from yeast extract & it's a great source of vitamin B.  This delicious spread is very versatile you can use it in stews, as a marinade for your BBQ meat, in soups and my favourite on toast. Most people say this is an acquired taste as the look and smell alone could probably put you off, but if you can get past both of these then you will find that it is a delicious, salty, smooth, peanut butter like texture, wonder in a jar. BUT remember …
