Instant Biscuits and GravyNov 25, 2011
I'm an American and had heard of, but never tried this stuff. Well thanks to the magic of the internet I decided that it was time to see what was up with all this Australian hoopla and get some for myself.
When it arrived, with much trepidation, I made some toast, added copious amounts of whipped margarine, and then carefully scraped a blob of Vegemite onto it and mixed it around. And then I ate it.
Its a very salty type stuff, with a flavor reminiscent of soy sauce and/or beef bullion, and maybe mushrooms. All I can think of is that this is like instant biscuits and gravy in a spreadable form.
Weird but kind of good. I'd get it again!

Not for everyone...but for those of us who love our salty things...this one hits the nail right on the head! Would buy this one again for sure!

wow.Sep 27, 2012
Looks like a jar of black vaseline but denser. Taste like a cross between soy sauce with a mushroomy blend. I spread it almost clear thin on my cracker...that 's all I can take. I ate on it all day when it first came in the mail...but barely making a dent in the jar. My hands were swollen the next day from the sodium.

Vegemite from Down UnderJul 06, 2012
Well, curiosity finally got to me to see what the Vegemite sandwich was all about. Its made by Kraft in Australia. Its all good and wholesome. Now, to describe this yeast by product. The best way I can describe it is...it's like a very salty, beef bullion-flavored, brown cheese whiz with a very thick consistency. I actually have come to like the flavor of it. It's just so salty. I have not figured out a way to use it so I will just keep eating a bit of it now and then. I think it has a pretty long shelf life.

Call meJul 26, 2012
Oh baby, baby I love you, I love how you are an excellent source of vitamin B, how you put a rose in every cheek, how you're basically nothing but salt and the taste of yeast... Would that I had known how terrible it would be to be parted from you, forced to be with you only on sweet, american bread which is just so weird. If only I had brought more of you from home, I'd eat you by the spoonful even though I'm fairly sure that would eventually kill me.
I want to hold you in my arms again... Calll meeeeee....
