awwe Cath, you are too nice! I'm just happy to have tried marmite! And I redouble what GB says, you are too sweet.
Although vegemite (from the sounds of things) can't be sold here, it is acceptable for personal use (something about the US trade and folic acid regulations--i might have that right?). I'm guessing this is why I couldn't find it on amazon.com or most retailers. That problem may have been resolved by now, but, I live in the midwest and I don't see imports as much as the coasts see them.
JGDean-I don't think yeast extracts are the same as yeasts, though, it would be nice to have an expert on the subject say something here.
I'm always willing to learn. ~Blissful

GB, thanks that was sweet, and it lasts a lifetime in either the fridge or the cupboard. If you go on to Vegemite - Home, I just found some awesome recipes that I didn't know of. Thinking of making vegemite pizza for dinner tonight - yum!

JG, if you are yeast sensitive I would probably steer away as it is a concentrated yeast extract but it is quite a strong and salty taste. On my 2 pieces of toast of a morning I would be lucky to use a quarter to half of a teaspoon on both pieces.

Blissful, you may find the song on their website as above.

PM me with your address if you would like some.

I know what you mean about imports, I live an hour from Sydney and we have limited specialty stores here, I had to drive to Sydney to get Graham Crackers!

I think it is the folic acid regulations from memory.

Aussies have been eating this stuff for the past 70 odd years and we are all ok (except for maybe the antennas growing out of our heads and webbed toes), no seriously, I suppose it is a cultural thing, who knows.

You know it is a derivative of beer - typical us, a beer and a bbq/party is never too far away!

If you don't like Marmite you'll upset the Poms
If you don't like Vegemite, well -- we're pretty easy to get along with

The Vegemite song vegemite

put about a T spoon of marmite into a mug and pour on hot water from the kettle and stir well, you can add a little white pepper to it also.
same works with OXO cubes and the likes.

Funny funny--
Oh the song is just TOO precious, all those little voices! I guess it could drive one crazy! If it doesn't make you at least smile then you can't be human.

We're happy little Vegemites

As bright as bright can be.

We all enjoy our Vegemite

For breakfast, lunch, and tea.

Our mother says we're growing

stronger every single week.

Because we love our Vegemite.

We all adore our Vegemite.

It puts a rose in every cheek!


I guess I just learned what a commercial sounded like on the down under continent! Imagine growing up hearing that all the time.

I tried the marmite with cheese on toast and crackers, yum. I think I've acquired a taste for it! ~Bliss
