  • Spot is a funny name for a penguin. Just sayin'

    May 5, 2010

  • Milosrdenstvi, would you consider English muffins to be toast?

    I mean, what is toast, anyway? Has someone already made a list of things you can (or should) stuff inside a toaster?

    May 3, 2010

  • You funny Milos!

    May 3, 2010

  • I watched it just now. Ha! Great. Thanks.

    May 3, 2010

  • frog, have you watched the marmoset song video?

    May 3, 2010

  • Gosh, I didn't know that eating vegemite for the first time was such an occasion that called for making a toast to your own food.

    May 3, 2010

  • ... or the brown malty stuff that I feed to cats when they're having problems with hairballs. (Haha! Love it, ruzi!)

    May 3, 2010

  • I toasted the English muffins, added butter, then started squeezing the tube. It was so thick... and... brown. The first bites were slightly bitter and slightly salty. It reminded me of vegan sausage links, or the brown malty stuff that I feed to cats when they're having problems with hairballs. It was pleasant enough, so I thought I'd try a thicker layer of it... that was a mistake - too salty! Slower is better. But I'll definitely try it again. And again.

  • frogapplause - totally! Reminds me of Otter Pops, which the ex and I used to joke were made from 100% pure otters.

    April 28, 2010

  • Marmite sounds like something made from marmosets.

    April 28, 2010

  • If you're feeling very brave, try spreading some on cheese. Make sure you don't put too much! Otherwise, I'd go for nice white bread or toast. Use a lot of butter/ margarine but down drown it out either. And don't get too worried because it's really not as bad as everyone makes it out to be.

    Good luck!;-)

  • 'zuzu, be a maverick and eat it with cilantro and let us know how it goes. By the way, Kraft company created a vegemite and cream cheese mix after learning that many vegemite lovers were adding cream cheese or butter to their daily vegemite experience.

    April 28, 2010

  • I was able to get my hands on some Vegemite! I'm really excited to try it, but I'm still a bit nervous. I was hoping that some of my Wordnik friends could answer just a few more questions for me. What's the best vehicle for it? Crackers? Sliced bread? How much margarine or butter should I use? And... and... you know, what's it like?

    April 27, 2010

  • Only if you'll try peanut b-- Oh, never mind.

    December 5, 2009

  • I second Possible's recommendation to try just a tiny scraping of Vegemite with a lot of butter. Also, it helps if you are hung over at the time, because 30 minutes later you will feel like a new person.

    I used to love it on toast with butter and topped with sliced (melted) cheese.

    Reesetee. *shakes head* How can I get you to try Vegemite? It is an acquired taste, true, but lots of people acquire it!

    December 4, 2009

  • So I called my local cooperative grocery store and asked whether they had "that Australian stuff called Vegemite." The person on the other end asked whether it was a "supplement." I said, "Um, I think it's more of a sandwich spread." Then I was transferred to someone who told me that the store had never had Vegemite and that lately they can't even get shipments of Marmite.

    So now that I can't get it, I really want to try it.

    December 4, 2009

  • But that's exactly what it is!

    December 4, 2009

  • this conversation makes vegemite sound intriguing, exciting even

    December 4, 2009

  • :D

    December 4, 2009

  • Nutella: neat
    Whiskey: hork

    December 4, 2009

  • Is neat Nutella like neat whiskey?

    December 4, 2009

  • Smooth. Not gooey like nutella, and not the sort or texture of peanut butter either. It almost blends in with the bread in a way that you don't even notice that you're eating it, except you feel that one side of the bread is rough and the other side is smooth.

    And never, under any circumstances, refrigerate vegemite.

    December 4, 2009

  • What about the texture?

    December 4, 2009

  • 'Slightly' bitter plus two steps I'd say. If you are going to to lose your vegemite virginity, I suggest starting with a very thin spread with rather a lot of butter. If you start with too much, you end up hating it for life, which would be quite a shame.

    (The Penguin (last time I checked anyway) is in the sandpit in the backyard)

    December 3, 2009

  • Yeasty yes, vegetables no. And salty as all get out. Perhaps I'll offer a jar as a prize in next week's Spot The Penguin!

    December 3, 2009

  • Okay, okay, so this Vegemite stuff... what's it like? Is it yeasty? Does it actually contain vegetables? I hear it's "slightly" bitter.

    December 3, 2009

  • Sure...

    December 3, 2009

  • What? I'm neat about it.

    December 3, 2009

  • Vegemite off a teaspoon is also delicious, but too much can destroy its power.
    Heheheh. I love the image of anyone with fistfuls of Nutella!
    Nutella and jam supposedly go very nicely together too: sweet with sweet I guess.

    December 2, 2009

  • Ahh, the blessings of a text-only interface.

    December 2, 2009

  • Oh, absolutely. However, I prefer to eat Nutella in fistfuls. ;-)

    December 2, 2009

  • Right off the spoon, reesetee? That's how I eat Nutella.

    December 2, 2009

  • Nothing against all those wonderful-sounding concoctions, but I prefer my PB au naturel.

    December 2, 2009

  • A PLT is very nice as well. Peanut butter, lettuce and tomato on toast. YUM! Also a fan of pb and nanner on toast!

    December 2, 2009

  • It is exotic in the corner of the world where I come from.

    December 2, 2009

  • So did I, but apparantly not.

    December 2, 2009

  • I don't get it, is peanut butter an exotic item for folks in some corners of the world? I thought it was universal.

    December 2, 2009

  • *makes mental note to try all these combinations*
    Mayonnaise goes well on apple as well. Incidentally vegemite matches apple too.

    December 2, 2009

  • Other variations include peanut butter and bacon, fried peanut butter and banana (Elvis Presley's favorite), and (occasionally, horrifyingly) peanut butter, butter, mayonnaise, and banana on toast (my grandfather's favorite).

    December 2, 2009

  • Someoneone once told me that peanut butter and jam is good. I've had that many times, of course, and it's not bad, but on that particular day I misheard him and thought he said 'ham'.
    So I went trooping home for a nice peanutbutter and ham sandwich.

    For the record, it was actually very nice.

    But vegemite goes with ham and cheese beautifully all the time.

    *takes some of rt's spooned out pb*

    December 2, 2009

  • *shakes telofy's hand*

    December 2, 2009

  • Only about a week ago I tasted peanut butter for the first time—marvelous.

    December 2, 2009

  • I proudly claim vegemite virginity. However, anyone who goes into the next world not having tasted peanut butter is a sad case indeed. (Peanut-sensitive Wordniks excepted, of course.)

    *spoons out pb*

    December 2, 2009

  • Marmite maidenhead. Losing vegemite virginity would be a pleasant experience. Obviously.

    December 1, 2009

  • Which would be more unpleasant? Losing one's vegemite virginity or one's Marmite maidenhead?

    December 1, 2009

  • Yes. That would be unforgivable.

    November 30, 2009

  • Well, at least I'm not a Tim Tam virgin.

    November 30, 2009

  • Can I have a bit of that iLife 2.0? I intend to develop it into an iLife 3.0 and maybe I may need some for my own... ahem... personal reasons...

    November 30, 2009

  • *sniffs*

    I smell dead people.

    November 30, 2009

  • Tastes like chicken.

    November 30, 2009

  • iLife 2.0

    November 30, 2009

  • I told you so.

    ;-)

    What's the afterlife like?
    Vegemity? Cheesy? iSnaky?

    November 30, 2009

  • I promise you, every time I've entered the afterlife I have, without fail, followed the injunctions of rumours with utmost religiosity. I have a perfect track record.

    November 30, 2009

  • I'd say so. There's too much at stake* in the afterlife to suddenly turn around and denounce the rumour.
    Besides rumours do take a lot of umbrage.
    I would know.

    *stake: burnt at the stake: hell: afterlife... geddit?

    November 30, 2009

  • uselessness, do you always believe rumours and follow their injunctions religiously unto the afterlife?

    November 30, 2009

  • Somehow that doesn't surprise me in the slightest.

    November 30, 2009

  • "Edit: And after then too, I suppose".

    That might depend on your final destination. I've heard that vegemite gavage parties are quite popular among the lesser demons that populate some of the circles of hell.

    November 30, 2009

  • I've heard that stuff is insufferable to anyone who wasn't brainwashed in the Australian school system. I shall remain celibate until the day I die.

    Edit: And after then too, I suppose.

    November 30, 2009

  • *gasp*
