Living in Australia i eat vegemite a fair bit, it is something that only Australians seem to love.

Watching YouTube the other day it made me laugh, some American girls trying Vegemite for the first time.....Sure in Australia we like to trick Americans, but im not to sure where they got the idea that you had to put so much vegemite on the bread.

The proper way to eat vegemite is to add some butter to bread then on top of that you add some vegemite, the amount of vegemite per piece of bread is about 1/2 teaspoon

Vegemite is a dark brown savoury food paste made from yeast extract, used mainly as a spread on sandwiches, toast and cracker biscuits....Vegemite is made from leftover brewers' yeast extract, a by-product of beer manufacturing, and various vegetable and spice additives.

The taste may be described as salty, slightly bitter, and malty - somewhat similar to the taste of beef bouillon. The texture is smooth and sticky (source Wikipedia)
