Wow!
That is fantastic news
(And you heard it first here)

I've never had Vegemite. I've heard it's not good

Allen, To the Aussies this is Manna. Find my video from about a year ago.

Yeah CAPT I remember that now

That is great, Manna from Heaven for the Aussies. Allen I have some if you really want I'l bring it to Yellowstone. If I remember right Capt's dog ran from the stuff. I have the Kraft version.

For those that don't what Vegemite is: I had to Wikipedia it because I had no idea. Now I know why I had never heard of it. Sounds like it's the Hawaiian delicacy of Spam, only in spread form.

Vegemite (/ˈvɛdʒᵻmaɪt/ vej-ə-myt)[2][3] is a thick, dark brown Australian food spread made from leftover brewers' yeast extract with various vegetable and spice additives developed by Cyril Percy Callister in Melbourne, Victoria, in 1922 and currently owned by Mondelez International,[4] but will be acquired by the Australian Bega Cheese group following an agreement in January 2017.[5]
A spread for sandwiches, toast, crumpets and cracker biscuits as well as a filling for pastries, Vegemite is similar to British, New Zealand and South African Marmite, Australian Promite, MightyMite, AussieMite, OzEmite and D Swiss Cenovis.
Vegemite is salty, slightly bitter, malty, and rich in umami – a glutamate similar in flavour to beef bouillon.

It is available on Ebay at about $0.05 a gram:

They told me the best way to use it is to polish your shoes! I tried it once, when I was visiting Marek and he had some as a gift from Dennis (Lucky 57), who visited him a year earlier.... To be honest, Vegemite is not my favorite taste to eat my sandwich!

Gert .... it's not a taste you can adapt to as an adult ... you have to grow up with it from quite a young age!

I believe it !!

Wayne, with Drew's post, I'm gonna have to pass on that offer. Thanks anyway

Hmmm, beer dregs and bouillon.

Edwins, that's the only part that sounds good, lol

Sounds nasty !!

Yay! mmmmmm Made from beer.......

Not for this Australian. Good to see the profits from it staying in Aussie though.

If you don't buy it Al, I wonder what kind of polish do you buy instead to clean your boots? Smiley-laughingSmiley-wink

Clean my boots?????? Are you mad?

No, I suddenly existed! lol
