It's very good for you and a new taste sensation to try if you like being a little adventuresome.
M. D. Cummings
Add a SMALL amount to something else, like spread some creamy butter first and then add a quarter teaspoon of Vegemite: that'll work great.
Ghost(Ghost(M))
Vegemite is a great source of vitamin B, and tastes yeasty and salty, in an indescribable sort of way.

Vegemite, the great Australian condiment and beer by-product. This is a jar of vegemite. Real vegemite, not that half-strength new stuff. Not a big jar, but with Vegemite, a little goes a long way. Really. There is even a rumour that no non-Australian has ever finished a jar. Also, don't worry about the expiry date. Vegemite never goes off, even keeping it in a cupboard in the heat of an Australian summer, so you do think the sub-Arctic conditions of Europe or the USA will have any impact on it? Nuclear waste will decay faster than this stuff.

Alright, so you have your jar of vegemite. Advanced users can find recipes involving vegemite as a dip, in cooking with meat, etc. But if you are an advanced user, why read a review? Walk away from the computer and go and eat some vegemite right now. For you interested novices, here goes:

1. Buy vegemite.
2. Eat vegemite, preferably on buttered toast or grilled with cheese.

Step 2 probably needs a little explanation.

Vegemite is not peanut butter, or marmalade. It is best used in moderation. Very moderate moderation. So get your slice of bread, and toast it if you wish. Spread butter on it - as thickly as you like. This is vital, both to cut the richness of the vegemite, and also to act a lubricant (spreading vegemite on dry toast or bread is a recipe for disaster - just because it resembles engine oil does not mean it has the same physical properties). Now, get a little vegemite on a knife. Less than that. Probably a third or half what you started with. You only need enough to faintly discolour the butter with a brownish tinge. Do the same thing with another slice of bread, or just fold over the one you have to make a sandwich.

Now eat the sandwich.

I'm not from Australia where Vegemite is so popular but I heard the song "Down Under" and always wondered what Vegemite was. I found out that its a yeast product made from the process of beer brewing. What I was intrigued about is that it is vegetarian but with a beef flavor. I ordered it through Amazon's Marketplace and here it came all the way from Britain. I spread some on a piece of bread and decided immediately that it was an acquired taste, but then again after a few days I found myself using it fairly often especially on crackers. Well, my wife started putting it in soups and that really cinched my love for it. It's very good for you and a new taste sensation to try if you like being a little adventuresome.

I was frightened by my breakfast today. Vegemite on buttered toast. Yes, I had researched the traditional way to eat it. But still... I was scared. I faced my fear. I opened the jar. I stared down the thick, dark, brown, gooey goo. I took a spoon and took control. I spooned out a tiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnny bit. Tiny. I put it on the edge of my toast. I made a face. I took a bite. I smiled. In dismay. In pleasure. I picked up the spoon again and commanded the brown goo to give me more more more. Well, still sparingly, but, nevertheless... more. I used no more than 1/2 teaspoon on my slice of toast. I had a second slice with another almost 1/2 teaspoon. I updated my Facebook status. People replied in curiosity, in fellowship or in disgust. Or all of the above. About an hour later I craved it again, and I indulged again. Between waking and dinnertime, three slices with that just-less-than-one-half-teaspoonful of Vegemite was all I consumed, and, I swear, I was pleasantly satiated all day and full of energy. Can't wait until breakfast tomorrow! :) (Standard disclaimer: I've been vegetarian for almost 18 years. This had an almost beefy taste. Salty, beefy, vegan, lots of B vitamins. Yum.)

Real quick: it's a dark paste, thick, kind of like chocolate mousse in colour (but much thicker). The taste is mostly salty, with a noticeable after-taste of bitter, with a very slight hint of dry smoked-fish (if that tells you anything).

Why it's not easily available I can't begin to guess, since this is a kind of condiment that, if you get a drop of it in your mouth, you'll continue to "nibble" till the jar's empty: it's really addictive. Goes very well with pretty much everything, from a slice of bread with butter, to veggies, to, believe it or not, almond butter. As long as it's not too sweet, it goes well with Vegemite, I think: like take butter, Irish butter (unsalted, creamy but neutral in taste) will do great; French (like President) probably not -- too flavourful itself, sweet.

One thing though: it's mindlessly promoted by all kinds of cretins (including the manufacturer) as a spread: god forbid you spread it all over that piece of bread, you're gonna throw up, it's too bitter that way. Add a SMALL amount to something else, like spread some creamy butter first and then add a quarter teaspoon of Vegemite: that'll work great. I don't even spread it, just scoop it with a teaspoon and eat: take a bite out of your sandwich, then a quarter tsp of Vegemite, this sort of thing. Don't use a ladle when dealing with it; a small amount does it.

A few things in closing:

- I've no clue why it's so freaken pricey. It's a byproduct of beer making! It's a kind of thing that if not used for Vegemite would be dumped into the ocean to pollute it even further, how much should this nonsense cost?! A buck a pound perhaps.
- It's available at something widespread but not well-known called Wegemann's (I think?) for six bucks a pop.
