I hate it. I hate it so much!
I’ve been to Australia a few times now and its hard to enjoy a breakfast there with out getting a waft of vegemite. Vegemite is fed to Australians generally starting a young age when the kids don’t know any better ( that it tastes horrible IMO) and because they don’t know any different they some how learn to love it. Eaten normally on toast, it is actually one of the richest sources of B vitamins in the world.
I have tried to like vegemite. I’ve attempted more than once.
If you want to take a step back in time 2 years ago, you can watch a video of me as I try to give it a shot and eat a whole piece of bread with vegemite on it… sadly I don’t make it much further than two bites…
Most Australians are in love with the stuff though, god knows why…. Like my friend Chris the Aussie Nomad, as you can see here in a video a part of his on going, Vegemite Challenge, trying to convince the world one person at a time that everyone should love this junk.
