Watch The Q Morning Show Try Vegemite Shipped From Australia
The only experience most American's have had with Vegemite is in the lyrics to Men at Work's song 'Down Under.' The line goes, 'I said, "do you speak-a my language?"
He just smiled and gave me a Vegemite sandwich.' That changed for the Q Morning Show on Friday morning when we tried Vegemite shipped to the United States from friends in Australia.
What exactly is Vegemite? It's a black spread that comes in a jar, like jam, but there's nothing sweet about it. It is made from leftover brewers' yeast extract with various vegetable and spice additives. Basically salt.
We brought a toaster into the studio, a loaf of bread, spread some Vegemite lightly on the toast and gave it a try.
