Can understand why Vegemite is there, even though I love the stuff. Nothing like a simple tea spoon of vegemite sans anything else when hungry.

But...musksticks, no..they are sacrosanct. Musksticks, and their cousins musk lifesavers are lovely, I cannot undertsand why every country in the world would not embrace them.

Actually I had a US friend visit in 1986 and the look of horror on their face when presented with musk lifesaver.

I used musk sticks as a substitute to cigarettes 24 years ago and kicked the filthy habit.

I've gotta agree with Vegemite. It's horrible,- but Promite, I could eat the whole jar using just a teaspoon.

Not sure what it is,- maybe a little more salty and less of the overpowering yeasty taste.

I'm not a fan of Vegemite either....Marmite is my breakfast of choice....in 2012, after the Christchurch earthquake, the factory was shut down and supplies dried up......it was a really, really bad year.. frown

Nothing wrong with vegimite, When yanks try it they spread it on thick like jam instead of thin no wonder it tastes bad. Best on toast with margarine so if melts together lol.

I thought Marmite was made and exported from pommyland.
Or am I confusing it with Bonox ?

The next person who cans VEGEMITE surely tempts the wrath
of the food gods.

This staple of life has been in every pantry I've ever
been in and is as essential to life as my favourite food,
Bacon Whisky Banana Cake.

Well I always preferred Vegemite over Marmite or Promite. I have found the others too salty. Though the missus prefers Promite and doesn't touch Vegemite.

But interestingly Vegemite is the better for your health then the others, especially Promite.

As for Musk sticks, they weren't too bad, but I rarely ate them.

Now, witchetty grubs, well it has been some time since I had some of these. Once you had had one, you either like them or not, just depends on your preference of eating the gooey centres. Otherwise, you could eat these type of Witchetty grubs.

The most disgusting thing I have eaten? Coriander - tastes like liquid hand wash.

Vegemite, avocado, poached egg, bacon on toast, butter and a bit of mayo. Bliss. Friend from Canada looked like she wanted to throw up. I tried to introduce her to vegemite. She wouldn't come at it.

SBT, that's sound pretty good, but what type of bread though? It will go good with rye bread, or a full wholegrain.

As for coriander, I don't mind either, especially fresh coriander with Thai food. The missus hates the fresh stuff, but know issues with the seeds though.
