Mick

I have had to help my hubby get ready for a trip these past few days so everything in the world has been on hold. I have the flyer right here in front of me and I will go on line and figure it all out.  Hope the shipping isn't more than the product.  OH Well, I will do it anyway just to share a bit of the heaven with you dear Aussie folks.

I will let you know when it comes it. Could be a couple of weeks time.

vegemite is a yeast extract, it can be used even for stock cubes, mmmmmmmmm, but the greatest invention is vegemite soup, now mick, im not sur eif you have tried it before but its the bomb,, seriously man, it is similar to promite, marmite, etc etc, but obviously much better,, when i was travelling round europe, i had, 2 sets of clothes, a jumper, and my ipod and a big jar of vegemite, its like a girlfriend,, Tongue


Vegemite ? Errrughhhh Yuck Yuck Yuck. Been there, Tried it.

LOL!  This string brought back lots of memories.  I was even thinking of pikelets today.  I served two years as a missionary in Oz.  A favorite (or "favourite" to my Aussie mates) trick to play on the greenies (new missionaries) was to set them up by taking them to a co-conspirator's house telling them beforehand that it is rude and socially unacceptable to Aussies not accept and appear to enjoy food offered to them.  Next our Aussie mate would offer them a heaping teaspoon of "chocolate spread" (it does kind of look like Nutella)--heh-heh-heh...  After the victim chokes on an overdose of Vegemite, we'd further torture him by giving him a big glass of cordial--STRAIGHT to wash it down!  For all you other Yanks, cordial is a drink concentrated to a syrup that is mixed about 10/1 with water.  By the way, Mick, ever tried feeding it to the bees?  If any of youse (Aussie plural of you) are thinking of trying it, let me warn you, it is strong stuff.  A TINY bit spread on buttered toast is quite nice (once you acquire the taste).  Use too much and it will cure you from ever wanting another taste.  Think about what eating a beef boullion cube is like and you're close to what a big dose of Vegemite tastes like.  I heard an Aussie joke about Vegemite:  "if you spread it on a road, it's called "bitumen".  If you spread it on runways, it's called "tarmac".  If you spread it on toast, it's called Vegemite!" Wink

Kelly, some of my family members are LDS and have served on missions for two years in many parts of the world.  I suspect that you are involved in the same religion, good for you.  Not to be nosey or off topic, just wanted to make a nice comment.  Have that wonderful, most beautiful day, health.  Cindi

ok, for you hardcore vegemite peoples, i have a receipe for you 2 try, do exactly as i say, now, get 2 peices of white bread only, a rip them into small peices, then get 1 table spoon of vegemite and 1 table spoon of butter and put on the top of your ripped up bread, now, boil the kettle, and pour in enough water until your bread starts to rise, after you have done this, stir the entire soupy contents around and then add a heavy amount of cracked black pepper on top, this is what our family calls vegemite soup,, and it looks a bit like spew and tastes similar, but if you like vegemite, its pretty darn nice, and easy to get addicted, this first taste is always a bit weird, but then youll wanna try just one more spoon full, then just one more and b4 you know it, its all gone, mmmmm, mmmm, yummy Tongue

I think the name lasted nearly a week before Kraft decided to change it again after printing zillions of labels.  Has anyone actually tasted this stuff?  I can't actually understand how vegemite can be improved upon or altered.

Nettie, we have a tradition here - no, a mandate, and it WILL be enforced - to gaily sing the vegemite ditty before tucking into our toast.  Here it is for your edification and study, so you are prepared for when the gleaming black gold arrives.

spam, properly prepared, is quite good.   grin



MMMmmm...spam good, we likes spam!  Keep a couple of cans in your pantry for power outages and stuff.  Drop it on the grill and make spamwiches.  I might just try some in my smoker next.

Okay, Annette, did it arrive yet?  If so, how did the taste test work out?

Aaah, Lone that brings back so many fond memories.

I wonder what that little girl at the end is doing today. I bet she still enjoys her vegemite and that she still has a rose in every cheek

It hasn't arrived yet, but I am memorizing the song so I will be prepared. If it tastes anything like a bouillon cube, well then it should be tasty.

After watching that commercial I was really wondering if there is more to this Vegemite stuff than just yeast.... banana devil

...that might explain some of the addictiveness.. Smiley
