I have just made vegemite toast for my hubby and daughter for breakfast!! I personally HATE it!!! It is a very love/hate thing and you have to smear it on very lightly. My mum used to darken and flavour gravy with a little bit of vegemite.
Tim Tams are great!! I buy them almost weekly. They are really good if you dip the end in your coffee then suck out the middle!! I can't believe you don't have them in the US, I thought you had everything.

I've found some wonderful things to try at the market I frequent. They are forever passing out tastes of this and that. I picked up some Italian caramel cream..It's mascarpone with caramel. I bought some plum fruit paste and dried fig spread. I tried the fig spread as a glaze on a pork tenderloin and we all loved it. My kids love the caralmel cream on sliced apples and pears and I want to try filling some cannoli with it. The plun fruit past was served at the store on top of slices of cheese. Haven't tried it at home yet.

kads, i love fruit paste. i buy the pear kind and put it on caPeachios crackers w/ cheese. i like brie or bleu w/ it.
i've seen the fig paste in the store but it's a different brand than the pear paste i buy. haven't tried that yet.
bang, i love anchovies. they're so SALTY, though. i use them in ceaser dressing a lot.
tee-hee, my parents brought home some of that insanity sauce when they were travelling and my buddy poured it over some spicy diritoes in excessive amounts. ridiculous amounts. lets just say he learned not to eat so much hot sauce that night.

Vegemite is but a pale imitation of


MARMITE

I have that argument every time I go to Australia! Vegemite is for sale in all our supermarkets, probably because so many Aussies live here! Marmite sells with the 'Love it/Hate it?' question - because it IS an acquired taste like Vegemite! Here's the Marmite homepage
http://www.marmite.co.uk/

My niece (from Aus) lived with us for a year when she first came over to live and work. My sister used to send her food parcels with TimTams.... And every single friend who came over was tasked to bring TimTams! Woe betide them if they turned up without a stash!

Ok luvs, I could have sworn I managed to get some kind of banana that was more for cooking than for eating raw. I guess I was mistaken. That was 8 years ago.

Okay, so here's the question from the Californian:
What are TimTams?
