Its basically spreadable salt. It hurts your mouth if you spread it too thickly, so spreading vegemite is an art form. Please beleive I enjoy butter and vegemite on toast cut into fingers.

i wouldnt know where to direct u to get some.. where do u live ? maybe try supermarkets first. you never know if they stock it or not ? maybe if there are any specialty stores in your area that sell Australian things, could try there. for example we got a shop called "The Kiwi Shop" which sells a whole rang of New Zeland products.

 

 

 

 

when i was little we used to run around saying "VAGINAMITE! VAGINAMITE!"

try gourmet food stores. they may have it. otherwise see if there's a 'world' food store. they usually have those sorts of things.

The Vegemite story is truly inspiring. It's chock full of Aussie ingenuity, hard work and innovation.

 

_

The yeast extract spread we all know and love first appeared on our shelves in 1923. It was made from many essential ingredients apart from yeast extract.

 

One of the main ones was Fred Walker - a man before his time.

 

He was an entrepreneur and business visionary. Fred tried many different businesses from selling hat accessories to managing an agency for racehorses & jockeys. He then branched out into canning. Under the company name of Fred Walker & Co, Fred started canning everything that could be canned- meat, ox tongue, macaroni and vermicelli.

 

In 1918, the war delayed imports of popular yeast extracts. Walker saw an opening in the market and pounced. Fred enlisted the help of a brilliant young chemist, Dr Cyril P Callister, to work on a yeast extract and a cheese that had a long shelf life. After many attempts, they developed a spread, and Vegemite was born.

 

While Dr Callister was working on a cheese with a long shelf life, he found a viable patent that was registered by James Kraft, a Canadian who was based in Chicago. Fred went to America to talk to James Kraft. James Kraft and Fred Walker were two peas in a pod and in 1926 they decided to start a joint venture -The Kraft Walker Cheese Company.

 

Kraft has been making Vegemite here in Australia since 1926 and continues to do so today.

 

Fred Walker's and James Kraft's values still pervade through Kraft Foods today and their famous spread continues to put a rose in every cheek.

 

mmmm, delicious.

I have 2 pieces. But it's definitely an acquired taste. You have to be Australian to reeeeally appreciate it's greatness.

I just want to know how this stuff is considered "Austrailian food". Is it just sold in Australia? What is Australian food exactly? And if It's ultra salty, doesn't that mean it's american food? (hahahaha.. many won't get that). Please explain..
