No. You Aussies drink too much and grow beer guts.

Ok - I'm sorry - my emotions got away from me. If I practise my Butch Bruce look, can I come shopping for Russian girls too?

Marmite vs Vegemite

Which is Best - an Argument that has Raged Forever

By Elaine Lemm, About.com Guide

See More About:

Marmite XO
Photo © Unilver
British favorite, Marmite, is a rich, dark-brown, yeasty spread for hot toast, on wafer biscuits, as a hot drink or a sandwich filling. Marmite lovers will tell you it is good on or in almost anything! The spread has a dense, salty flavor and must be used sparingly. Marmite is made from yeast extract (a by-product of the brewing industry) and is a rich source of vitamin B complex. Statistics say that 25% of Britons take Marmite with them when traveling. Marmite have also released a new spread, Marmite XO, it is an aged version of the original spread and said by some to taste more like the Marmite of their childhood.

Vegemite on the other-hand is from Australia (though it can be bought in the UK), and is also a yeast extract spread.

Given, therefore, that they are both yeast extracts, surely they should taste the same but apparently there is a distinct difference in the two flavours and as Vegemite has more added flavours, colouring and additives than the more natural Marmite, does that make one batter than the other? Marmite vs Vegemite, the Taste Test

A trip to Australia brought my first encounter with Vegemite on its home turf so I decided it was time to see if I could tell the difference between not only Vegemite and Marmite, but threw the new XO into the mix as well.

I am not sure the 'blind' tasting would hold up to scientific scrutiny, just three slices of hot buttered brown toast, each spread with an equal amount of spread. A bite of each and the differences were (to me) apparent straight away.
  • XO was easy to spot as it not only had a denser, richer flavour, the colour was darker than I was used to and the texture, thicker and stickier.
  • Marmite original was easy as it is a flavour I am well used to. The saltiness is balanced by a slight sweetness with a smooth, silky texture.
  • The Vegemite, I am sorry to say I didn't like, despite wanting to. I found something in the smell slightly off-putting, though I couldn't quite put my finger on why, and the flavour was weak and insipid with a tangy after taste which I found unappealing.
My (Australian) friend, a Marmite lover had much the same reaction.

I was genuinely surprised that the two products are so completely different and for me the "Mite that is right is Marmite and I hardly care if it is XO or the traditional one, I love both.

So, I guess the debate rolls on and an answer to is Marmite better than Vegemite still elusive. It's all just a matter of personal taste I guess.

Good fun, as is this book
 The Mish-mash Dictionary of Marmite. The Mish-mash Dictionary of Marmite.
All you need on the famous 'Tar in a Jar." A great gift if you have a Marmite lover in your midst.

The History of Hashima, the Island in Bond Film “Skyfall”

I didn't see the movie, nor did I know this place existed. A "city" built by Mitsubishi on a small island to house coal miners and their families. Once the coal below the island was mined out, the end of this place came quickly, and it has been untouched for 30 years. Amazing.

Brief story on PRI's The World.

The history of Hashima

15-minute documentary of a former resident's return to the island:

The lights...the lights...the lights...the lights...the lights...

Anyone else want to punch somebody everytime they see this ad...

Fok you Kmart and the stupid fokken song they play in the commercial I see every 15 minutes...


Actually my wife hates it more than I do...
So...being the complete as$hole I strive to be...I did some research and found that the name of the band that plays the "lights" is called Grasscut..
I found the original song on the youtubes and play it for her everytime she leaves the room...

While sitting a reading a book tonight, my girlfriend suddenly and quite out of the blue asked 'what is vegamite?'.

I don't know where this is going but I don't think I like it. I hold you people responsible. Not sure how, but you've clearly gotten to her.
