What does vegemite taste like?

What it is: Vegemite is a spread that is an Australian trademark and has been going strong for nearly 90 years. It’s made of yeast extract and is high in B vitamins.

How it tastes: Vegemite tastes very salty with a slightly savoury flavor. It’s similar to Marmite in some ways but has a stronger taste.

Tips: Vegemite is said to be an acquired taste, so don’t be surprised if you don’t like it. If you’re planning on trying it, apply a small amount to buttered toast or mix with your favorite savoury spread. Don’t apply it liberally like Jam or you may regret it!
