    Actually I think one of the coolest thing about vegemite is most foreigners don't dig on it. I make it a habit to carry a jar of vegemite with me for this reason and whenever I see foreigners eying off the good food I quickly dob some vegemite on it and watch them screw up their nose leaving it all for me. Youd be surprised just how many foods can taste great with some added defensive vegemite.
    In my defense, I did try to like it. My Brit friend sent me marmite first. I didn't really hate it, but I couldn't eat more than a tiny bit of it, either. It just tasted like a salty beef bouillion cube in semi-liquid form. If you told me y'all used that stuff to flavor stews, I'd totally believe you. I tasted my Aussie friend's vegemite when she visited--she brought her own squeezy tube of it--and it was marginally better than the marmite, but not by much.

    JJJ, most Americans will have at least heard of vegemite, if only from Men at Work's immortal line, "He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich."

    Most of my friends actually leave the room when I bust out the Marmite. Then make retching noises when I eat some on toast with butter (mmmmm). It is very, very cruel, but hilarious, to watch yeast-spread newbies slather it on thick like it's PB.

    Foreigners don't dig on Twinkies, but I don't hold them up as culinary masterpieces.

    Something wrong with you people.

    If you read my blag over at The Forum That Shall Not Be Named, you'll know my daughter pooped in my face while changing her diaper.

    Better than vegemite!

Tall tales of Americans drinking Budweiser at Oktoberfest in Munich can be added at will.

    2. While talking about something else, nonchalantly begin preparing yourself a vegemite sandwich with the jar prominently in view. They will probably comment on the unfamiliar nature of the jar, and inquire as to its identity.

    3. Act mildly surprised they haven't heard about it. Tell them it's probably the most popular spread in Australia. Ask them what spreads they eat in America. Whatever spread they admit to liking the most, tell them you like that a lot too. Seem sincere.

    4. Common ground established, and a distaste for looking like an Ugly American tourist implanted, encourage them to try "some" vegemite on bread. "Just half a piece, to try. You can't leave Australia without trying vegemite." Be encouraging but not avid. If asked about the recommended thickness of the application, be vague, as if it doesn't really matter.

    5. Enjoy.
    I jus' tell 'em to spread it on thickly.

    When I was a little boy and living in a newsagency at Maroubra Beach, Sydney, my mother would only give us brown, wholemeal bread, for our own good of course.

    But I really liked to visit the home of my best friend, Frank, 'cause his mother always gave us white bread with butter and vegemite.

    I don't like to be disloyal but how wonderful to have a mother like Frankie's.

    I quite like vegemite and chip sandwiches. Tasty.
