    What's the difference???? it's soo easy to tell the difference, though i am probably weird, seeing that i used to hate Pepsi, yet drink Coke by the litre.

    Marmite is not as bitter as vegemite. Its like a low strength vegemite.

    I found a richer one, heres my recipe:

    Take 5 jars of Blackmores B Complex tablets.
    Pour contents of jars into mortar and grind to a powder -- alternatively you could use a blender/food processor/angle grinder.
    Add water and stir to form a paste.
    Spread on thick white bread (toasted or untoasted).
    "Enjoy."

    Ilove vegemite and I too use to eat it with a spoon when I was a kid, but now I like it either on toast or fresh bread. Both with real butter and a thin layer of vegemite not too much or it gets a bit overpowering.

    Thick, thin or the tiniest little drop..cant stand the stuff.
    Hate it when somebody makes me [usually peanut butter] toast and butters it with a knife they just used to spread vegimite. Ruins my whole day.

    Moral of the story: Make your own damn toast.

    Vegemite FTW!

    You know, here they got "Kit Kat Chunky with Peanut Butter" (Oh my god they ruined it), so I wouldn't be surprised if the next one is "Kit Kat Chunky with Vegemite" :thumbup:

    Mmmmmmmmmmmmm... after a night on the grog, a couple of spoonfuls before you hit the sack, what a rush to the head, as Vitamin 'B' hits the bloodstream.

    I like the little vegemite-and-crackers snack packs you get at the store. Not too crazy about it on toast. BTW, I am American and yes I do spread it 'extremely thinly'... :)

    I think it's made from like, an otherwise waste product which is made when they brew beer.

    I think it's a cultural thing. IMO People who have a long aust family history which spawns from english / scottish / irish etc roots tend to take more to vegemite than people who come from elsewhere. That, and/or the face that aussie kids grow up with it. It is an acquired taste. Could be wrong though.

    Vegemite is like drinking vodka - more than a little will knock you out.
