We Tried The New Vegemite And Cheese Meat Pies And It Wasn't That Bad

Australia has no cuisine? Try again sweetie.

Nothing is more Australian than a big glass jar of black, fermented yeast.

(Don't @ us America... you literally spray cheese from a can.)

And there's definitely nothing more Aussie than a pastry casing full of piping hot meat that will most likely burn the roof of your mouth.

PSA: It always tastes better when eaten with your hands.

So you can imagine our excitement when we found out that these two foods had combined into one power couple.

Four'N Twenty recently released a limited edition beef, cheese, and Vegemite pie... and it honestly felt unpatriotic not to try it.

I chucked a few in a hot oven and while these babies warmed up, coaxed two coworkers into a taste test.

Just look at all that Vegemite-cheesy goodness!

Jameson enjoyed it, despite almost burning his mouth on the molten-hot cheese.

"It's good. It doesn't taste that Vegemite-y. It tastes more like a cheese pie. There is a Vegemite aftertaste."

Jemima, although cautious at first, felt like something was missing.

BuzzFeed

"I can't taste ANY Vegemite and I love Vegemite so I would pick it up. It's just like salty cheese. It's still good, but it needs more Vegemite."

And then there's me, and while it smelled like Vegemite, I also couldn't really taste it.

BuzzFeed

To be honest it just tasted like a salty beef and cheese pie. I'm not complaining, it was good. I could definitely smell the Vegemite though, and after I swallowed it I got a Vegemite aftertaste in the back of my throat.

So, in conclusion, while it's a tasty cheese pie, it definitely needs more Vegemite. Unlike a piece of buttered toast, this is where you probably don't need to go as light on the thick, black stuff.
