Do you have any idea what Vegemite tastes like? Have you ever tried Vegemite? I just got back from Australia and I had my blogger boo, Allison from Flights to Fancy fix me Vegemite the way Aussie’s eat it. No better way to find out what Vegemite tastes like than in the home of an Aussie, right?

What is Vegemite?

Vegemite is actually a yeast extract. It’s almost black in color, it’s very thick and it’s spreadable. Most Australians use it sparingly as a spread on toast in the morning, along with lots of butter. It contains tons of vitamin B and is loved by most in Australia.

According to What’s Cooking America: 

Compare buses, trains and flights
  1. 22.7 million jars of Vegemite are manufactured in Australia every year – that’s 235 jars per minute.
  2. 30 jars are sold in Australia for every one exported.
  3. Vegemite is in nine out of ten pantries in Australia.

What does Vegemite taste like?

To Australians, it tastes like heaven. Check out my video and see what I thought about it. To most Americans, we didn’t hear about Vegemite until the Men At Work song, “Down Under” so we can’t really imagine what it tastes like as we have nothing similar to Vegemite in our American pantries.

“Buying bread from a man in Brussels
He was six-foot-four and full of muscles
I said, “do you speak-a my language?”
He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich”


Have you ever had Vegemite? What did you think of it?
