Vegemite has been a staple of the Australian diet for 95 years. On toast for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch or even a late night snack.
It was originally called ‘Pure Vegetable Extract’ until some marketing genius ahead of their time came up with the name we all know it by today.
There has been a few different versions over the years too. Cheesybite, the ill fated 2.0 and more recently a salt reduced version.
Now that the Aussie favourite is back in local hands, The Bega Food Group, the company has released a limited edition bolder flavoured version called Vegemite Blend 17.
How limited edition? Only 45,000 units produced apparently, which would describe why I found it so hard to track down.
Anyway here is my video review / live taste test.
Have you tried it? Let me know what you think in comments below?
