Default How do you like your Vegemite (census)

I like mine covering every square inch of the toast or fresh bread.

Vegemite toasts a billion jars produced.

Glad to see that the USA banning of Vegemite was a hoax.

Visit the links in #1 and #2 posted here. No it is not like margarine. It is thick and black like what they cover roads with. Some say it tastes and smells like that also.

It is Australia's favourite sandwich spread. You can spread it over butter or margarine, or leave the butter or margarine out. Use it like peanut butter or peanut paste.

Don't spread it on too thick as it is overpowering if too thick.
I even took jars to Sierra Leone (west Africa) with me when I worked there so as not to miss out.

Vegemite, yeast extract and marmite are all the same thing, and I love them spread THICK on toast with lots of margarine too. It's actually really healthy stuff for you - packed with vitamins - but you either love it or hate it.

I brought several jars over when I came to the US, but gradually they ran out, so although I heard about the "ban" we brought some more back last Christmas in our luggage. Now I know why no-one batted an eye at us doing so. Gotta love these hoaxes.

Yeast extract made by a chemist. MMMM sounds well, it sounds disgusting, but I have never tried it. What is that like Spam for the folks down under?

Welcome back under the Kestrel name. Other name was not you. Your posts are back, too, and congrats (I think) on the malware fighter bit. I still remember our first posts and replies. Bazza

None of this discussion is making me ever ever want to try this stuff. More like run.

And jeez, augie. I'm thinking I won't be eating for a bit.
