Vegemite, is an Australian product, manufactured by Kraft Foods Ltd, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It's dark brown food paste made from yeast extract, used mainly as a spread on sandwiches, toast and cracker biscuits, as well as a filling of pastries like Cheesymite scroll, in Australia and New Zealand. It is similar to British and New Zealand Marmite and to Swiss Cenovis.
Vegemite is made from leftover brewers' yeast extract, a by-product of beer manufacturing, and various vegetable and spice additives.

Vegemite is black gunk that you usually spread on your toast lol full of vitamin D apparently!
Mrs. Kaye!!!! You could be banned from the shores of Australia for a comment like that!!! GUNK!!!??? ( Although you are already nearly offshore living on the edge of Australia LOL)But How dare you denegrate the great vegemite jar of energy and health - a national icon LOL!!! GUNK indeed.... I grew up on vegemite and cheese sandwhiches... I adore vegemite.. nothing as good as butter and vegemite on hot toast in the morning... or on a chunk of warm fresh bread... YUMM!!!FULL of vitamin B's .. again Kaye you failed the test to be Australian ; Question on the what every good aussie should know form is - Q1: what vitamins are contained in a jar of vegemite? You gonged out - you could possibly be deported for that!
For you guys who remember Granny from the forum... I sent her a sample pack of vegemite to try... she hated it called it vegemuckus..I guess you have to acquire a taste for it; and it is NOT BLACK... it's a dark brown like dark chocolate only its a paste the consistency of smooth peanut butter..
What does it taste like??? very hard to describe but it is a strong taste ; hence you spread it thinly and its quite salty but unique... I hate marmite and dont think they taste alike but again acquired taste I guess.
Never had a hershey bar but I love Mars bars...
