Vegemite on toast is the perfect hangover cure....

I've become fond of vegemite lately, but when I want an extra kick of protein after a work-out, it's chunky peanut butter on toast. It all depends on the mood for me.

I don't like the way peanut butter sticks to the top of your mouth.

FSP,

The mistake many make is to spread vegimite like peanut butter, it's used in "moderation" as described above.

Tastes great that way.

Crunchy peanut butter and cuecumber sambo's on white bread.

Warm tank loaf bread from a Bakery, butter and vegemite!

*yay*

Did anyone ever have the dreaded vegemite sambo in their lunch box in primary school?

The vege sambo's almost always got chucked in the bin at recess. Bring from home lunch wasn't an option in SE QLD as food would be warm and yucky by lunchtime.

This is a no brainer...now after my one experience with Vegemite in Australia, where I had a fingernail sized bit spread over a piece of bread, and ended up drinking fully 2 quarts of water in succession afterwards to try to wash the nasty flavor out, with a long lasting bad taste in my mouth, I think the choice here is obvious...Peanut Butter definitely  Smile

Found a tube of vegemite in one of my MRE's (Australian issued), it came with the one with Lamb with Vegetables, well all of them come with vegemite, mine just happened to be that one... Unfortunately no peanut butter. I wondered what it was but everyone set me straight.

Agreed it's a no brainer, peanut butter's better.  Smile

I guess you have to develop a taste for it.

Cheers

If eaten in the right quantities Vegemite is better. I never really aquired a taste for peanut butter. Vegemite is great in the morning to get you going for the day. Toast with some butter or margerine, thin layer of Vegemite and a thin slice of cheese. MMMMMM That sounds good right now.

Vegemite tastes more like crapamite. Try creamy peaunt butter melted with jelly on a cinnamon raison bagel, you'll LOVE it!

But in SE Queensland people drank hot vegemite drink instead of Bonox.

We also had such delights as Jacaranda Brand Drinking Custard, ugh!

Who ever heard of drinking custard? (in lime and ricecream flavours as well)

Glenn,

I agree. We also had plastic bags of milk (not cartons) which was the stupidist invention yet.

The ricecream flavoured Jacaranda drinking custard was a treat...

I won't tell you how disgusting it tasted but ask a chick who swallows what it would be like if said *stuff* had boiled rice in it.

Ugh! I am gagging right now.

Well here in North Queensland we have Vegemite soup and it can be as hot as you like it. (Then again we also have scoops of chips and byjingos)

*vegemite = breakfast spread*

(It looks like axel grease and has a salty savoury taste.)

Yeah puts new meaning into the phrase "By Gee, by Golly, by Jingo" doesn't it?

Byjingo is a term for an Ice Cream or Ice on a stick.

Your Mum in Bundy probably wouldn't know as it appears to be a term unique to the North Queensland area (remember the "Separate State by '88" campaign - if so now you probably know why!). Same as "scoop of chips" and "AJ" (although this seems to have spread since the 80's).

Does anyone know where can I get vegemite in the southern California area.....I would like to try it and see what the fuzz is all about, I had previously asked about the taste and I was told that it would be the same taste as if I licked my ass..........but since my mouth can't reach my ass I ask again if anyone knows where to find it.

Another fun use for vegemite:

Smear a fair amount of vegemite on your teeth then grin wickedly at your partner - breath on them too...

Or at school we used to have black dunny (toilet) seats - used to love putting vegemite all over a dunny seat and waiting outside them with mates - ready for the disgusted cry!

As an Australian living in the USA (sccutler's nephew) Vegemite is one of the things I miss most. It is best on toast with butter in the mornings, but I never got into the vegemite sanga. As for you banana benders, vegemite, tastes good, but.
