Just to make it difficult.
Ive never heard of marmite.


It almost looks like molasses.
Could that be it?

it ressembles it in appearance, but that`s as far as it goes.

have you ever done a beef roast and seen the dark brown mollases type material left in the pan? ever tasted that?
that`s very similar to Marmite :)
it`s Salty to taste, but that doesn`t do it justice as a single word.

You used to be able to get Vegemite in little spread packets (they looked like those plastic pats of butter) at Outback Steakhouse. I guess you can't anymore.

I never cared for the stuff myself.

Sure. :P

I had calamari the first time at the keg.

Maybe I'll try vegemite.
I dunno if Ill like it. But I'm open minded when It comes to food. Otherwise I wouldn't know how many foods I don't like. :D

It's kind of like our ridiculous cheese laws. Everything here is pasteurized until its dead in as many ways as possible.

I don't know what's going on, according to the US Gov. they haven't banned it, it was all just a media hype. Here's an article that we got about it.

So adding folate to food is banned by the FDA because of birth defects, etc except in breads and cereals? Alcohol causes birth defects. The laws here are just bizarre sometimes.

I've heard that vegamite is very if you aren't used to it. But it's really popular in Australia.

Just on the Outback Steakhouse.

We ate there when we were over there. This one was in Washington somewhere.

Anyway, we had some nice steaks with seasonal vegetables. After all the take away food we had been eating whilst on holidays we were hungry for some good old fashioned veggies. Out comes the steaks, with a pile of Brocoli. No other veggies were seasonal apparently.

Vegemite is awesome. You can't have too much of it though, a thin smear on toast is nice. Get it too thick and you can't taste anything else. It's definately a unique taste.
