Australian Vegemite

"We're happy little Vegemite's 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."

According to passed down Folklore, children in Australia grow up with the aid of vegimite.

Since the 1920.s the spread Vegemite has been a favourite in Aussie households. Even now in the 21st century Vegemite is on most Australian's shopping list. Mostly mothers give it to their children to take to school on a sandwich commonly call a Vegemite sandwich.

I like to add Vegemite to bread with either ham cheese tomato and onion 'toasted' with Vegemite or if I am in a hurry just Vegemite mixed with a slice of bread with peanut butter. Many people add it to crackers with tomato & cheese.

I'd like to sing that song, substituting Vegemite with Marmite :) I have this constant argument with my Aussie friends about which is better - though I must confess, I like Vegemite too - but Marmite better! That recipe sounds great!

That recipe sounds yummy, but for me, the best vegemite sandwich is fresh white bread, with vegemite and chopped walnuts - Yum!

Sandyspider, it is a bit similar to Promite (US) or Marmite (UK)

You probably could get it a specialist delicattesan or big supermarkets with speciality sections. I know here in Australia we can find popular brands from England 7 the U.S. & Canada

I have heard of Vegemite, but I haven't found it here in the US. At least not where I live.
