BEHIND THE VEGEMITE
Many of my Friends in the U.S and Europe and worldwide ask
What is vegemite?
How do you eat it?
Do you eat it or do you lube up with it?
What is its purpose?
Why do Australians' idolise the "Mite" so much?
How much Vitamin B can a Koala bare?
How do you smear Vegemite?
Is Vegemite Scrunched or folded?
or just how much do you coat on your toast?
Well, This is the way I
Eat my Vegemite and this is a Greggles Recipe that goes right back to convict
times and the first settlement of Terra Australis....
My Great, Great Grandmother-in-law got the recipe from a
shopkeeper who knew a guy down the road who melded horseshoes and once saw it on
the back of a horse and cart etched into the bodywork which incidentally was
owned by this dude called Governor Arthur Phillip who I have since found out
flogged it from A Bushranger named Ned who incidentally was the founder of Twine
Rope Bungee Jumping...
NEW FOR 2007
VEGEMITE BANNED!!!! IN
It is rumoured that U.S.A Custom officials banned vegemite after reading this website and noting that it may explode if mixed with milk. Read other theories in the HISTORY LINK....
Meanwhile...Listen to 2DAYFM's Hamish and Andy discuss the
banning of vegemite and listen as they attempt to deal in vegemite to
some random Americans . . . CLICK HERE for an MP3 of the podcast.

Since 1998 I have not had one
single submission of a picture of a vegemite milkshake.
