my, word, i LOVE vegemite! to clear up the usual questions that come my way after i say that i eat vegemite:
1.)YES, i am American. 100%. born and raised American. curiousity just got the better of me, so i asked for some vegemite for my birthday.
2.)yes, it is an acquired taste
3.)yes, it is made from the by-products of the brewing process
4.)just a warning... do not order vegemite from Agape Outback. they send you expired vegemite and give you MAJOR, MAJOR attitude if you complain. i got YELLED at for complaining when they sent me an expired jar. they care very little about the consumer and much more about the profits, IMO.
5.)if you don't take well to salt, you won't take well to vegemite
6.)vegemite is an excellent source of B-vitamins!!!!!!!!!!!!
and just a heads up:
any of my fellow Americans who choose to brave vegemite, a word of caution...
see your pinky nail? don't use any more vegemite than you could fit on that nail...
and slather your toast with butter before the vegemite goes on.
this is definately one of those times in which you will say, 'less is best.'
unless you want to be a hard-head, like my Dad.
go ahead, scoop a spoonful of vegemite out of that jar and gulp it down.. i i promise, you'll be making faces you weren't aware you COULD make within 5 seconds...
i still cannot decide which is funnier...
-the time my Dad took a huge gulp of vegemite
-the time my brother took a huge gulp of vegemite
-the time Dad rolled his eyes and gulped down a huge dallop of wasabi, tried to hide the fact that he was in tears, and refused to ingest wasabi at any time thereafter...
