Yaaay trying hard to maintain the illusion of "Pax Britannia" !!!! Cool

Though admittedly the UK clearly is clearly one of the leaders in high tech automotive engineering

Desiree, the portuguese have great linguizas and outstanding chouriços, but we are kind of prudishly discreet about them Smile

RE: How I love to live in the counrtyside.
Of course "we" all eat Vegemite - well a substantial portion of us do - it is however very much an acquired taste. Vegemite is similar in look to Marmite but smells different, has a slightly different consistency (marmite seems gooyer) and ofcourse tastes much better. It is however very much an acquired taste. Marmite though it looks similar is not a substitute - personally I don't like the taste of Marmite.

It even has its own Website http://www.vegemite.com.au/

At one stage recently there was some discussion that the FDA in the US was going to Ban the importation of Vegemite into the US however an major international incident was averted

[www.news.com.au - 25-10-06]
AUSTRALIANS travelling to the US can breathe easy. So can the 100,000 or so Australian expatriates living in America.

The US government today dismissed media reports it had banned Vegemite.

"There is no ban on Vegemite," US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) spokesman Mike Herndon said.

Media reports at the weekend claimed American border officials were confiscating Vegemite from Australians as they entered the US.

The FDA, charged with policing America's food supply, has not issued an "import alert" to border officials to halt the import of Vegemite.

Mr Herndon said the FDA was surprised by the media reports.

The controversy centres on folate, an ingredient in Vegemite.

Under US regulations, folate can be added only to breads and cereals.

"One of the Vitamin B components (in Vegemite) is folate," Mr Herndon said.

"In and of itself, it's not a violation. If they're adding folate to it, boosting it up, technically it would be a violation.


If you are traveling overseas and are going to see any expat Aussies you are virtually guaranteed to be asked to bring a few jars of Vegemite with you. From the same article:

While many Aussies living in the US rely on visiting Australian relatives and friends to bring them a jar or two of Vegemite from Australia, the product is available in some US supermarkets.

The price slapped on Vegemite, however, is tough to swallow.

A tiny, four ounce jar of Vegemite sells for around $US4.80 ($6.33) in US supermarkets.


As the songs says:

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!

He was six foot four and full of muscles
I said, do you speak-a my language?
He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich
And he said,

I come from a land down under
Where beer does flow and men chunder
Cant you hear, cant you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover. >>

There are times when I wonder at the lyrical and poetic aspirations of certain nameless forum members. Have the worlds of literature and the arts missed out?

No, we are talking about Vegemete songs. Australian Vegemite songs at that.

If anyone in the UK requires a sample of the stuff

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?V...0161340295

It can also be used to repair punctures, disperse rodents and patch up driveways. I wouldn't know what it tastes like as it is one of the three things on the planet I am allergic to.

I suppose you will at some point further enlighten us as to numbers 2 and 3? But on second thoughts maybe we shouldn't go there.

I wondered who would crack first..

2. Cheese - gives me Migranes, as does Vegemite, Marmite etc.

3. Cricket - (the game) need I say more.
