    Default Ping: Australian rfc-ers - "New" Vegemite?

    http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599...rom=public_rss

    Have any of you tried this? If so, what's the verdict?

    To be honest, it sounds awful (to me)... and what do you think of the
    name "iSnack2,0"?

    I haven't tried it and doubt I will. It's been out for a while now, unnamed
    while the contest was on, but it just doesn't appeal to me. I like my
    Vegemite straight, don't even have butter with it, so mixing it with cream
    cheese is not my thing.

    There are people who like it - but doubt even they will like the name. That
    just seems stupid to me.

    Haven't tried it Cathy.

    I buy Vegimite in B-I-G jars so it takes me a while to get through them
    (there are only so many crumpets you can eat).
    Doubt if I would, though. Old fart, fixed in ways etc etc.

    Never tried the new Isnack 2.0, but original Vegemite is NASTY!! I had
    Austrailian housemates in the early 1990's and the last one left me a
    jar of Vegemite which I kept in my cupboard. My then young son asked
    me about it once, so I got it out and we sampled some. And we BOTH
    agreed it's nasty stuff!

    I swear, Aussies must baste the gums of their teething infants with
    Vegemite and rub it in to assuage their teething pain. That's the only
    way I can figure anyone could develop a liking for the nasty stuff!

    We don't get Vegemite here, but we do get Marmite, which (from what I've
    been told) is pretty similar. I used to love Marmite as a child on
    crackers or toast (straight, not mixed with anything), but I only eat
    it on the odd occasion nowadays... However, the thought of mixing it
    with cream cheese just doesn't appeal to me. Different strokes for
    different folks, I suppose. I still think the new name for this
    concoction is rather silly tho' <grin>

    The name is beyond lame. I predict it will die an early death.

    Heh, no such luck. We get krappy Kraft stuff here in RSA too; Miracle
    Whip *not* being one of them, IMHO. <eg>

    You probably tried too much at once. Standard advice for new players is
    to scrape it onto a piece of buttered toast, then scrape it off. If you
    spread it like peanut butter, you're in for a surprise.

    My sentiments exactly.

    I don't eat Vaginamite.
    Hated it as a kid, hate it now.

    I'm a Promite person.

    I just cannot bring myself to try it. It is the wrong colour!

    We go through heaps of vegemite with the grandsons living with us. I
    love the stuff and so do they. Husband was born in England so he was
    never indoctrinated as a child.

    I like it on toast, crumpets, fresh bread and butter, vegemite and
    crisp iceberg lettuce sandwiches, vegemite and cheese sandwiches, on
    crackers..... hell I'll just about eat it from the jar.

    As someone else stated Australians must give it to their teething
    babies... Just about, babies in Oz very often have vegemite on
    teething rusks!


    The name? Stupid.

    Sounds awful to me too and I love vegemite. Cream cheese and vegemite is
    not something I want together, in fact the only worse idea is its name.

    Very Pro Vegimite AKA Axle grease
    have used it in some stews and soups as well

    Re the new name think some add agency wanker liked it but
    reckon
    stuffing about with Iconic names and brands is doomed .
