    We’ve got a jar of Vegemite in the cupboard here that is slowly but surely heading to empty. Fortunately we should be able to stock up again when we head to London next month. 🙂

    Not sure about this cream cheese and vegemite mix, though. I remember clearly Mum buying Vegemite Singles (Linky) back years ago and remember them as being OK as far as plastic cheese goes. Perhaps the cheese will soften the harsh salty/yeasty taste a little and open the brand to people who weren’t fed it as a 6 month old (ie – anyone NOT born in Australia).

    I dont know. I dont want to know.

    This reeks of some seppo in marketing thinking out loud “how can we sell more of this?”

    The stuff has been going alright for quite some time now so I dont see why we need some wanker in a suit trying to sell us more of it.

    OMG Wiz
    That’s exactly what I thought.
    You don’t MIX them together, they mix in your mouth….

    Well can someone take one for the team?

    Vegemite & cheese….sounds good except for the cheese part.

    mmmmmmm…….Vegemite……salty good

    You know, I absolutely love Vegemite. And I absolutely love cheese, especially melted mozzarella or extra sharp cheddar. But not once have I ever tried Vegemite with either.

    Perhaps next time I order pepperoni pizza, I’ll dab a bit on a slice. Or I’ll just melt a handful of mozza on the pan and possibly go to town. Sorry, the extra sharp stash always runs out quick and the bastards stopped stocking it over here (ho hum, it was bliss those few months). Anyway, if either of those go well, I’ll really be hitting one of you non-expats up.

    In the meantime, can’t one of you just try it? First test, in pure (unadulterated if you will) form. Raw. Next, on toast – one with margarine, one with butter. But maybe with the cheese, that won’t be necessary. Thus, a dry toast experiment will have to be done… including one dipped in egg, plus butter and margarine versions, respectively, dipped in egg.

    Someone? Please? Pretty please? Americans are also part of the VRWC, and this is a most crucial operation. It costs and arm and a leg to have stuff sent over so any feedback is of paramount importance.

    Not this little black duck.

    “You know, I absolutely love Vegemite. And I absolutely love cheese, especially melted mozzarella or extra sharp cheddar. But not once have I ever tried Vegemite with either.”

    You’ve never had a Vegemite and cheese sandwich? Dear God, what kind of deprived childhood did you have?

    I will say this for the Vegemite and cheese sandwich, it tastes just as good after 3 weeks at the bottom of a school bag as it does fresh. I’m guessing the 15kg of books on top kept the mould out…

      Na, I was a fussy eater as a kid. The Vegemite had to be fresh. Not how it goes that lighter colour by the time lunch rolled round. Yeck. And it smelled different. And I didn’t like cheese as a kid, only cheese on cheese pizzas. Parmesan used to smell like that similar looking powder they spread over some kid’s puke at school… or maybe that was the combined fragrance.

      Now I can’t get enough of the shit. Er, Parmesan, that is.

      Dude, you we’re tough back then. Be tough now.

    • bingbing Says:

      Man, I was a weird kid. Yeah yeah, so what’s changed?

      Anyway, it was wholemeal, not that white crap, but definitely not multi-grain either. Taste, yet texture also has always been important. To this day, I still prefer the crusts. Kids who needed the outside crust cut off? Bleh.

      Maggi noodles swimming in ketchup…

      Three week old crushed sangas? I know your type. Fuck. Well at least we’ve found some common ground later in life.

      PS One friend’s mum used to mix Coke with water. She will never be forgiven.

    • VodkaBlogger Says:

      Young’uns over here mix cheap red wine with Coke for a sweet, red mix they call ‘Calle Mucho’ (Spanish name, French drinkers – go figure). Coke and water? Now THAT’s stretching your pennies…

    • bingbing Says:

      Damn dude. That’s a pov arse version of vodka and redbull.

      But, er, taste any good? Na, take that last question back.

    • bingbing Says:

      VB You should do a Sunday Drinket to link to the Sunday Brunch. It’ll get re-linked as an update on that post after, well, as soon as physically possible.

      We do have have other editors and administrators who are apparently more responsible, so it could even be sooner than that.

    • VodkaBlogger Says:

      bing – I’ll pop a ‘Sunday Shooter’ up this week. 🙂

    • bingbing Says:


      Just a heads up but. I used AEGIS missile systems last night. It’s been a cunt of a week. Some fuck lifted my wallet 7 days ago and it’s a total fucking bitch replacing the shit from overseas. The new supervisor at work is a rank twat.

      Now tonight, my girl wants to “talk” about our relationship, a good mate is having a going away (going home?) party… dude, I’m getting so fucked up tonight… make it one hella-dandy shooter.

      WTF?! Did I just say dandy?

    I tell you what, I will take one for the team.

    I suspect that the \”new\” Vegemite will be as fantastically wonderful as \”new\” Coke was. If only I could remember what \”new\” Coke tasted like.

    We got through a jar of Vegemite a month or so; I have it on my toast, the kids have it on their toast, and nothing beats the taste of fresh, fresh white bread slathered with butter (none of that margarine crapola – we want real transfats that will bring on a heart attack).

    Also Bing, regarding this idea that Vegemite doesn\’t remain fresh. I\’ve only ever known the black gold to go a bit unfresh if the jar\’s about 5 years or so. Even then, it\’s still edible. It\’s not like we\’re talking about some pansy, delicate little foodstuff like a souffle.

    To misquote Leonidas: This. Is. VEGEMITE!!!

    • bingbing Says:

      Ironic. I use white bread over here…. can’t get wholemeal. And real butter… well just for a change. I sample pure Vegemite as an on-going snack. Call it sustenance. But regardless, and sure there’s vanilla coke and lemon coke, and considering its those financialied crisied Yanks again, sure.

      C’mon, just a spoonful… on toast.

    No. Fucking. Way.

    Not with that “margarine” shit.

    Do you realise how screwed up margarine is? Do the scientific test – put a pat of butter on a saucer, and leave it on the front stairs in the sun.

    Beside it, put a pat of margarine in a similar sized saucer. Report results in a week.

    The ants (smart little fuckers they are!) are all over the butter, which goes off to a pasty yellow.

    The margarine just, ummm, sits there like plastic, and none of God’s little creatures will touch it.

    For Kaboom, that says a lot……

Well, SAY something...
