VEGEMITE HAHAHHAHA! I forgot all about that stuff! I think its discusting, its an aquired taste thats for sure...I tasted some on toast once in New Zealand and it tasted like I took a plain peice of toast and just dumped salt on it , needless to say Im not a fan of Vegemite.

This is how we 'weed out' fake aussies overseas, more effective than biometric passports and finger prints and ID cards. Two pieces of vegemite on toast - if they can't keep it down - they aren't the real deal... So ladies, the next bloke you meet who swears his name is Bruce and he comes from west of Wagga, make the Vegemite offer and see how he reacts...

Nothing beats vegemite on toast in the mornings

In other news the US has lifted its vegemite ban after the outrage it caused

It has some acid or something in it that under American laws was only allowed it bread and cereals. They started checking bags of Aussies coming in and everything.

There never was a ban, per se.

http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,2...5005961,00.html

It was more that if folate is added to Vegemite to boost the levels, rather than being naturally occuring, it would technically be disallowed...but the FDA hasn't enforced anything regarding Vegemite. Basically, it's a hoax...

Not that I'd mind if they banned that vile stuff :D
