No its not! (Sorry for shouting!) It's better and is the original! Sheesh, that's the trouble with our British ex-colonies, they take our ideas and change them and then try to claim they invented something!

Vegemite is a little milder in taste than Marmite. It's a love or hate foodstuff. My family LOVE it! I often have Vegemite in the house, though, cos my sister lives in Oz and she and her children and their partners and their partners sisters, brothers, inlaws etc descend on me at regular intervals!

Ahh Vegemite, hangover food of KINGS!

Very different in flavour to Marmite despite having the same (un)appealing colour and texture. I find Marmite to be sweeter both in smell and taste. However I havent had it in years, so maybe I've forgotten.

Still alot of Americans/Canadians who come out to study at my uni and live at the same college can be divided up into two groups:

a) those that have tried it and love it
b) those that have tried it and think its the spawn of satan

Heh, gotta love the stuff.

Okay Ishbel and Haggis, I will leave it up to you two to duke it out and decide which one is really superior, Marmite VS Vegemite!!

Well but Ishbel you gotta give a point to Haggis for that decidedly scottish nick!!

Marmite sandwiches with Oros in a juice bottle

White bread sandwichs spread with marg. & marmite and a juice box filled with Oros orange concentrate topped up with water - how many kids in UK, NZ, Australia an South Africa go to school with this standard lunch for 12 years?

I actually like Bovril better. My NZ friend says Marmite is vegetarian but Vegemite (oddly enough) is not.
