Love it! Makes me drool just watching.

Don't suppose you got the billionth jar with the gold token under the lid? Just checking...

Femina said...

Is this Vegemite Day and no one told me?

For the record, I'm Australian and it makes me want to vomit too. *shudder* Evil, evil stuff. (Cute photos, though.)

Givinya De Elba said...

No! Not the billionth jar! And I bought it especially because I held the jar in the shop, and I had a Good Feeling about it.

No idea what I would have won. a T-shirt or something?

So Femina, where are you from, originally?!

Femina said...

Hehe... my maternal grandparents were born in England, but I don't like Marmite either.

What do you get if you find the billionth jar?

Femina said...

Oh. You answered that question... you don't know. I didn't even know there was a golden token so you're one up on me.

LOL Thats gorgeous!!

Well, this American didn't vomit (perhaps because I never tasted it?). But now I have that goofy song stuck in my head...

She looks like she is thoroughly enjoying it. What a cutie.

I've heard of that stuff, but what does it taste like?
What a little ham she is. Adorable pictures.

I wish we had that here! When I lived in North Ryde for a year, I loved spreading a tiny layer on my toast ~ but can't find it here in the USA.

That third pic is SO cute. :)

Those pictures are adorable.

I think that I had it wrong...they glopped it on in a thick layer...is it supposed to be just a thin layer? Are there recipes for it? Maybe I should just go with the fact that like the Nutella that you gave us (Australia, not you personally) it just isn't meant for Northern tastebuds.

Okay, so I've just looked it up and found that Vegemite does not actually have vegetables in in? So, it's like peanut butter or other spread but isn't sweet? Ummm...I'll take Nutella thanks.

Jen said...

Is it wrong that I just think that this is cute?

Tracy P. said...

Yes, I'm sure if most of us knew what exactly it was, or had ever had a whif of it, you'd have that right. But I hear it's sort of your "peanut butter", and since it's practically illegal to have PB around because it's lethal to so many these days, we'd probably be much better off acquiring the taste for vegemite. Your little Smoochy obviously knows something we don't know!

Toivoa ja Elämän said...

yum! love vegemite lol. i'm the only person in my family who likes it >=(
i must confess i do eat it on its own sometimes, but in small doses and i manage not to get it all over my face (usually) ;P

Adelaine said...

I am curious as to what the main ingredient is?

I wonder if an American could pick it up at a World Market store? I would try it! I do like me some Nutella as well.

Dee from Downunder said...

aha, so cute! She obviously loves it. Thanks for the link.

I believe it is sold at World Market stores in the US for those game to try it.

Hippomanic Jen said...

Isn't the main ingredient salt? It's basically yeast extract and is supposed to be full of vitamins. Oh, and salt.

I used to eat it off a spoon, but I don't now. I think it is supposed to be spread thinly, but I like it thick. But if I were an American trying it for the first time, I would spread it VERY thinly. Then again, a good whiff is probably enough to make them gag!

Aww...There's nothing more patriotic than a gorgeous little one smeared in a delicious poo-like substance... Does anyone know the words to the national anthem? I feel inspired to sing! No? Oh well, nevermind...

CynthiaK said...

BLECH!! I'm not American (although we're the friendly neighbours to the north) but I must say...BLECH!!

*shiver*

I think it's the name that makes American's shudder. Vegemite...Termite...I somehow get the two confused! It just sounds freaking disgusting!
