    I don't think so, therefore I'm probably not.

    I like Vegemite. Vegemite + cheese + bread = yay! When I drag Rabbit to Australia, I will eat it all for him.
    So now they are just dirt-covered English people in fur pelts with credit cards.

    Actually the bunyip I do know but I love legends and lore. It varies so much in descriptions though that it might as well be the Aboriginal Pouka (or Pooka). Though I admit, it is not likely to be confused with a "bloody hole in the ground".


    I've never had Vegemite so I cannot comment on it. How do you feel about the American Peanut Butter? Do you know it? If so, do you like it?

    While I get the gist, the only of these I can translate properly is "seppo" - "Yank" -> "septic tank" -> "seppo."

    I've had Vegemite. It tasted sort of like roast beef fond with yeast. Nasty.

    I suppose that could be appealing if your only other food options are mutton, dust, and wombat liver.

    What is it with 'mericans and cheese? Not everything needs cheese added, damnmit. They even make a Vegemite and cheese mix now.

    Tried Vegemite, didn't like it. Don't like them marmalades with the peel in 'em, neither.

    Yeast is yeast and zest is zest and never the twain shall I eat.

    I don't like marmalade either. I certain wouldn't recommend mixing it with Vegemite.

    Marmite is completely different. It's what Poms use instead of soap.

    OK, first, the language divide:

    * 'bagging' - criticising.
    * coming the raw prawn - getting irate/negative about something ('raw' prawn being a rotten one).
    * ridgy-didge - genuine, or honest.
    * give someone the drum - tell someone about something.
    * pucker tucker - good eating, delicious.

    Also, I love peanut butter. Especially the crunchy variety.

    I think we can both agree on Promite.

    Besides Vegemite is what they use to tar the roads with.

    You know, Tom was just talking about the other day how he bought some Vegemite because he saw it at the supermarket and always wanted to try it.

    When I go up to visit him (soon, if disaster will avert itself from my path for at least 4 consecutive weeks) I'm absolutely going to try some. I look forward to having a strong opinion on it. I mean, I like apple jelly a lot, and nutella, why shouldn't I enjoy some vegemite?

    Just remember, Panther, the best way to enjoy vegemite is to get a BIG spoonful of it and stick it in your mouth. This really lets you savor the texture and unique flavor.

    If you scrape a sensible amount of Vegemite onto hot toast with melting butter on it, you can't go wrong. Don't listen to the Pom - the lack of sun affects their brain.

    Well, if you want to keep eating third rate road scrapings and insisting that it's good stuff, who am I to comment on the total lack of common sense.

    The difference between them is simple, Marmite contains an excess of umami and your mouth will love you forever, whereas Vegemite contains an excess of urgh and your mouth will want a divorce for attempted poisoning.

    Of course, an amusing thing to do is to give some Marmite, or Vegemite if you are really desperate, to a stranger and tell them it is chocolate spread and watch them spread it thickly on toast. Seriously, thinly spread on toast is best.

    Maybe The Yanks have good taste after all. Canadians invented poutine and Justin Beiber, so that settles that question.

    Genuine curiosity. How different does marmite taste from vegemite? I only tried the latter, and I liked it well enough. It's a taste that grows on you.

    Marmite is ... a bit sweeter? A little less yeasty? Still quite 'tangy' in its own way, though.

    spitz, chances are you had the Antipodean version of Marmite which is slightly sweeter and less tangy than the original UK version. The UK Marmite is a slightly richer, stickier and more intensely flavoured than Vegemite.

    Could I please ask that you turn down the volume, just a smidge, spitz?

    I know this is Thunderdome, but not everyone runs at Master Blaster's frequency.

    I know I'm technically new here, and I should spend more time observing and being




    YOU FUCKER CALL ME A SEPPO ONE MORE TIME!

    Oh, OK.

    Then that happened.

    Actually, vegemite/marmite is pretty inoffensive -- it fits right in with the (seriously, not kidding) utter mastery of toasting bread you English have brought to the table. I think there's a John Thorne or Steingarten essay about toast somewhere.

    One of my favorite ways of eating bread, utterly lost to uncultivated hordes like the French, who, as in many aspects of things culinary, resorted to prepackaged, cellophane-wrapped "grilled bread" (a very good product), and individually-wrapped cheese slices (very popular product -- and it is acceptable), and 1.5L of wine in great plastic "sipping" containers.

    Digression aside -- just like to take people like the French down a peg where possible, to head off criticism of reverse racism/ethnicism.

    Srsly, what is the problem people have with vegemite/marmite?

    I've never been to Englandaralia, but I did have a housemate/landlord for this couple-unit-thing-whatever-spit-barf for a number of years, and that scumbag was like English from England, and he was garbage and illiterate, despite his doctorate and modest amount of success as an artist. Yeah, that's all I see when I think of a little jar of that stuff, muffpunching some douche.

    ETA I break my rule and actually edit content:

    Just, all I was saying is that I know it can be sometimes hard to tell just how loud you're being in a quiet place like Thunderdome, so let me help you try to remember that, like all proper private clubs, Boodles Upstairs is one where it's *never* wrong, in any interpretation, to lie back and think of England Paul Hogan.

    Why is there no clenched teeth biting tongue smiley? You English pillow wildebeest-biters are good terrible at that sort of thing,..........

    No, I can't keep a straight face. You win this one, I admit.

    But still I want to know why people hate on vegemite? It's good stuff.
