A second blind taster considered the Marmite milder, but still found the Vegemite delicious despite its more harsh taste.

Vegemite is something that I could never eat. It has such a strong strange taste. If Marmite is close to it in any way I don't think I want any of it either.

I have never had either one and had a hard time finding it being sold in the US. Is this an Australian thing? Do they sell these brands in the US?

Let me tell you, finding Vegemite even in a populated city such as Houston is not easy. But, I often saw Vegemite’s cousin, Marmite. When I inquired with experts, “can I just try Marmite and get the same experience?”, the turf wars began. East coast, west coast, bloods, crips, Marmite, Vegemite, the hate began to flow. We don’t realize this in the States, but Vegemite is Australian, and Marmite is English.

vegemite is less runny, therefore is better in the physical sense, and the flavour is also a bit better…and i´m italian. on the few occasions that i have been forced to settle for marmite something awful always happens… i have had a fairly blessed life really..due no doubt to my decision to consume the superior yeast extract.

I do not know how people keep down either of these substances. I have tried both and neither would I try again.

Vegemite is perfect. Marmite tastes like someone tried to copy Vegemite and failed miserably. It’s too sweet and also too thick.

I'm also like Vegemite. Marmite, a British favorite an Australian staple, are what we'd refer to as an acquired taste.

Vegemite is a cousin, so to speak, of Marmite, the yeast-based spread invented at the beginning of the 20th century in England. The British B-vitamin spread was wildly popular Down Under until its supply was interrupted by World War I.
