    We're happy little Vegemites

    As bright as bright can be.

    We all enjoy our Vegemite

    For breakfast, lunch, and tea.

    Our mother says we're growing

    stronger every single week.

    Because we love our Vegemite.

    We all adore our Vegemite.

    It puts a rose in every cheek!

  • "Consumer uproar over iSnack2.0 has forced Kraft to concede that its new Vegemite-cream cheese blend might have to be renamed. US-based Kraft is now considering how it could change the name of the product before half a million of the jars bearing the new name go on sale over the next few days.

    'There’s a distinct possibility that we'll be critically evaluating the name,' Kraft's head of corporate affairs Simon Talbot said today. 'The name isn't resonating with success or favour.' At the moment, the product is on the shelves with a label saying 'Name Me', part of a competition that has been running for months."
