This Is How You Eat Vegemite

Americans, take note.

1. About a week ago, BuzzFeedOz sent a care package for BuzzFeed LA to taste.

2. The results varied…especially when it came to our nations favorite yeast-based spread, Vegemite!


3. Needless to say, there was a lot of backlash from Australia’s online community.

4. And a lot of people weren’t exactly happy with how the taste test was done.

5. Thankfully, there is now an instructional video on HOW to PROPERLY eat Vegemite.

6. It is VERY CLEAR on how not to eat it.

NO large amounts and DO NOT eat it straight from the jar.

7. So this reaction actually makes sense.

Don’t do it!

8. This is the APPROPRIATE WAY to eat it.

You need BREAD. You need BUTTER. You need A TOASTER.

9. And THIS is the EXACT amount of butter to use.

Ah, the golden ratio.

10. The spread is actually quite light!

11. So next time you’ve got some Vegemite in your hands, consult the video!

12. And this could be you!
