One of the many really enjoyable things about traveling is finding different foods and beverages. But since New Zealand and Australia aren't exactly known as exceptional culinary destinations, we wondered what we might discover.
But yesterday morning at breakfast, alongside the bread and bagels, was a basket of vegemite. Not even sure what to do with it, I spread a little on a corner of my toast. Interesting!
Vegemite is considered as much a part of Australia's heritage as kangaroos and the Holden cars. It is actually an Australian obsession that has become a unique and loved symbol of the Australian nation.
A Vegemite sandwich to an Australian kid is the equivalent of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to an American kid - but the taste is QUITE different!
