The other week Brooke from brookevstheworld.com had her parents down in Australia for a visit. Along with the usual Sydney sights she told me at some stage vegemite would be brought up, so naturally I was eager to find out the verdict.
What I wasn’t expecting was this blog post that featured the blow by blow account of their Vegemite encounter.
After watching the video I had learn’t two things, Americans need better sewage systems if they are still using carts to move the stuff around and the second was that Brooke’s mum is awesome.
Check out the video below and then be sure to head over to Brooke’s blog and leave a comment for her.
With just over 2 weeks till I make for Europe I’m looking forward to spreading Vegemite across the palate of a few travellers and getting their verdict. Have you tried Vegemite? Are you willing to try it and film the occasion? If so let me know and you too can be featured on my blog. Let me know at my contact page if your interested.
Haha, I watched the video the other day and loved it. Maybe it’s a good thing you won’t be able to meet up with me, ’cause I’m sure you’d get me to try it O:-)
Ah, no worries. I’m sure I will sooner rather than later. I’ll document it for myself I’m sure and will let you know the results 😉
Don’t think your getting off that easy Heather. One way or another your going to be feasting on this delicious spread and I WILL be there to capture the moment 🙂
Gee, I’ve never even heard of Vegemite. I’d be willing to try it if I ever run across it. But I think I won’t like it.

haha Keith that was exactly my thoughts.
Hahaha she reacted exactely the same as I did when I tried it the first (and only) time. I guess it comes down to what you’re used to and brought up with.
Does fermented herring sound like anything for you? ;P a delicassy here in Sweden…
Sofia I’m willing to down some fermented herring if you try vegemite again for me 🙂
Can you get like, sample packets or anything? Cuz if so, I’d totally pay you to send me some. Hahaha.

We have single servings of it like you get for take away tomato sauce and the like. I’m sure I can get something shipped to you Candice. Unless your getting to Europe soon, then I can serve you up some fresh from the jar.
I have not had it but everyone says it’s disgusting. If I run into an Aussie with it, I’ll see if I can try it and film it.

Hey Brooke, no problem. I couldn’t let this pass up, I mean its not that bad 🙂
I’m still hesitant about this vegemite, I know that it comes from beer excess and I’ve brewed my own beer and have seen the left over bits. Not too appetizing.

Cornelius your doubting the goodness that comes from beer… shame on you.
We all enjoy our Vegemite for fricken breakfast, lunch and tea!! I just had it on some toast 🙂
