Vegemite, enough said

I had originally thought about writing a post on our first AFL Grand Final experience, but the game was a blowout so that will have to wait for another year.  Instead, I bring you something better than the Grand Final and potentially better than gold itself.

It’s May trying Vegemite for the first time.

For those unaware, Vegemite is a food paste that seems to be the de facto standard for known Australian food by those outside of this continent.  It is made from yeast extract which should tell you enough to determine if you would actually eat it or not.  However, May did not get to choose if she wanted to eat it or not because I determined that for her.

Therefore, on to the wonderful video.  Enjoy.

Post video comments from May included,

Oh……oh……No!  Why would you eat that?


Oh………that was absolutely terrible

Here is another youtube video with some people having a similar response.  Or a kids specific one if you think that would be funnier.

As a result of May’s new found “respect” for this Australian, I believe I need to post the following on ebay or gumtree:

For Sale

One opened, slightly used jar of Vegemite.

No price tag needed as we are gladly giving this “treasure” away as long as it leaves our apartment. I’m sure there is someone out there that would find a way to put its contents to good use.

    Vegemite is salty, slightly bitter and malty, and rich in umami – similar to beef bouillon.

    Beef bouillon?
