    honestly smh if you don't get a spoonful and stick it in your mouth like a lollipop. sometimes you just crave that salt.

    Blaine is kinda right about it.


    Aussies kinda get a stockholm syndrome to it as children because it's one of the few 'healthy' things to make sandwhiches with that is in an easy jar. Then we continue with it as adults and the cycle continues.


    As an Australian I personally don't like it but I know damn well enough to know that Cati was about 75% on the money here. Needs slight butter.

    You need some toast like Caiti said.  Corn thins fail.

    Every Aussie ever: You're supposed to only use a little.

    Caiti: [Uses hardly any]

    Blaine: [lathers it on]

    Blaine: It tastes like... ass.

    Nope.  Needs a thick as hell spread over it, with or without butter, if I see bread underneath it there's not enough on there.. hell I'll eat it of a spoon like a Vegemite lollipop (and have).
    But personally prefer the more superior, Promite.

    Vegimite is what you get when you put criminals on a burning hot island with hundreds of deadly animals. It's natural that it tastes like ass

    I personally enjoy mine in a "disturbingly thick pool of no escape" kinda way, but it is most absolutely a thing you need to ease into. I have plenty of Australian-raised friends who dislike it from just putting massive amounts on and dying of horrible, searing regret.

    Vegemite is best enjoyed on fresh out of the toaster,  thickly buttered light rye bread. The butter will start melting leaving lovely gooey chunks of buttery goodness. The vegemite will slide over the top, in thin little globules. The toast will be golden and crunchy. You will instantly become an Australian citizen.

      You made me crave Vegemite on toast with your wording.

      This is definitely the best way to eat vegemite. Another good alternative is with cheese, on some bread, throw it under the grill until the bread starts toasting and the cheese melts. Delicious.


      The butter is definitely an important ingredient, helps counter the dryness.

    The cheapest white bread you can find, a generous amount of margarine or butter, and a thin spread of Vegemite is the only acceptable way

    So yes, I'm sure many Australians like myself will say: Vegemite without butter/margarine is still pretty vile. Because it's so salty you need a lubricant and it allows you to use less. Caiti. You're doing it wrong.

      As far as i know, Vegemite isn't too dissimilar to Marmite - and that tastes just fine on its own

      It can't be as bad as you're describing it, can it?

      It's not just salty but very acidic in taste, it burns on the tongue when you just straight up eat it. But some margarine or butter, something to thin the Vegemite. I love it on fresh bread when the Vegemite to margarine ratio is just right. Soft, the margarine adds a touch of moisture both to the bread and to the Vegemite and finally the Vegemite offers that wonderfully salty taste. Not to much but not too little, that's how you eat Vegemite.

      Vegemite is fine without butter (but not as good as Marmite) but if you're new to it, you need to be eased in.

      And I, like many Australians, disagree (respectfully). I don't use anything else with vegemite toast or savoys or saladas. A vegemite sandwich I usually like to have nuttelex. Vile is a harsh description, Americans just aren't familiar with it and so it's shocking.

      It's so the vegemite side touches your tongue before you start chewing and you get that awesome taste before they're mixed in your mouth. I think. That's the reason I do that anyway.

    When you have to be taught how to "each something the right way" to like it, chances are that food is just disgusting.

      Yeah. Let's start drinking hot sauce and eating spoonfuls of butter.

      yes and no, sometime people just do it wrong and ruin the food making it nasty, sometimes the food is just nasty.

      Wow people are dickheads.  I agree with Remy that if you have to be taught how to eat something the "right way" it's probably not for you.  From what I understand Vegemite is very love it or hate it.  Like coffee, it tastes like shit but can become an acquired taste.

    Vegemite: Australian MASTERPIECE 


    I'd eat that tub of Vegemite, in fact, it excited me because I've never actually seen that tub in Victoria and I WANT it.

      We have a shop in Adelaide that supplies shops and such (and need to have an ABN to actually shop there). They had a 20L bucket of Vegemite... now that was impressive :P
