Vegemite vs Suzy

Vegemite vs Suzy

That’s right folks its about time I made someone else suffer enjoy the wonderful taste of VEGEMITE. So while I was in Florence (yes you’ll hear about that soon enough) I got to meet the wonderful Suzy Guese and hang out with her for a few days.

Along with the joys of eating pizza and enjoying some wonderful gelato in Italy I opened Suzy’s eyes to the beautiful breakfast spread that is Vegemite.

Want to see how it went, well hit the play button below.

Umm…. let’s just put that down as a fail in my attempt to convert everyone to Vegemite and move on shall we.

      Oh Lauren, just be lucky I wasn’t pushing it onto you when we met up in Melbourne ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have a jar of Vegemite I haven’t opened yet. It says it’s expired now, but I’m wondering how long after that date is it still okay to eat?

      Hi David, I think you would be fine eating it as I’ve never heard of vegemite going bad. In saying that it never lasts to expiry date when I’ve seen it.

    Shouldn’t you have moved on to marmite by now??!

    Hahaha… that is classic. Vegemite might be the worst thing I’ve ever tried… and I spread it thinly! lol

      Oh what your not a fan either Brendan. I’ll show you all how to eat it in my next video.

    I’ll try it again one day when we meet, Chris! Suzy, you definitely had it on thick — good for you for trying ๐Ÿ™‚

      That’s good Heather, as a condition on meeting me is trying vegemite ๐Ÿ™‚

    Poor Suzy! I barely tasted like the tiniest bit of it and the taste and smell made me want to gag. I’ll stick to peanut butter!

    • THE AUSSIE NOMAD September 8, 2010 at 7:47 PM #

      Aww Laura not you too. I figured with all your off the beaten path travel you’d love it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Leave it to you all across the ditch to ruin something great like Marmite with Vegemite!

    • THE AUSSIE NOMAD September 8, 2010 at 7:48 PM #

      haha Matt, we didn’t ruin it mate we made it better.

    Being an Aussie, I’ve always liked the old Vegemite but even when we lived in the Middle East for 12 years I never had cravings for it, though my husband would. I wonder what it is that makes one Aussie more inclined to it than another? Social conditioning or is it genetic do you reckon?

    • THE AUSSIE NOMAD September 10, 2010 at 7:22 PM #

      Lara I think it’s just the fact we grow up with it, that it becomes a staple on the kitchen table. I always remember getting vegemite sandwiches etc at home when I was younger.

    just tried vegemite for the first time. It’s like watered down cack. It’s not even runny, it’s like butter!

    And where’s the salt?

    I miss Marmite. They did have something called Marmite but it didn’t look the same, will have to see if that tastes better because I’m not eating Vegemite ever again!

    • THE AUSSIE NOMAD September 10, 2010 at 7:16 PM #

      haha oh dear boys. Is marmite over here runny?? I can’t even imagine eating that ewww.

      You know you want to try it one more time. That way you can make a video for me ๐Ÿ™‚

      I think the marmite in OZ is the one from NZ but I’m not 100% sure as I’ve never had it.

    Where did you get the vegemite song?! It songs like insets singing. Once again, it just proves my point, vegemite is made of insects. Well it appears the majority agree here that vegemite is truly awful.

    • THE AUSSIE NOMAD September 12, 2010 at 1:15 AM #

      haha Suzy that’s a classic aussie favorite that song. It actually came from an old tv advertisement, you can find it on youtube.

      I can see I’m going to have to up the anti to get you all converted to vegemite now hmmm…

    trying to think how drunk Iยดd have to be….

  12. KIERON February 9, 2011 at 5:46 AM #

    Hahaha can’t believe I’m only seeing this for the first time now. Gold!

    Vegemite is definitely an acquired taste! I tried a tad in Australia and thought it was weirdly salty and yeasty. I can relate to Suzy’s reaction ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh poor Suzy, what a way to sample the culinary sensation that is vegemite. Far too thick! I myself am a love of all things both vege and mite, mar..mite is another personal fav so I’d be up for a liberal smothering of the blessed mite. However for a newcomer perhaps a light scrapping over some melted butter?!!
