US Bans Vegemite?!
US bans Vegemite

The United States has slapped a ban on Vegemite, outraging Australian expatriates there.
The bizarre crackdown was prompted because Vegemite contains folate, which in the US can be added only to breads and cereals.

Expatriates say that enforcement of the ban has been stepped up recently and is ruining lifelong traditions of having Vegemite on toast for breakfast.

Former Geelong man Daniel Fogarty, who now lives in Calgary, Canada, said he was stunned when searched while crossing the US border recently.

"The border guard asked us if we were carrying any Vegemite," Mr Fogarty said.

"I was flabbergasted." Paul Watkins, who owns a store called About Australia in San Antonio, Texas, said he had been forced to stop importing Vegemite six months ago.

"We have completely stopped bringing it in," he said.

"(US authorities) have made a stance and there is nothing that can be done about it."

2. Isn't folate the stuff that pregnant women are supposed to get lots
and lots of? I thought this administration was pro-fetus... :shrug:

56. They're the same thing...
Just different chemical forms of the same B vitamin. ('Folic acid' generally refers to the synthetic form while folate often means the naturally occuring varieties.)

And now I never will unless I go to Australia. :cry:

11. You could try Marmite or Bovril other similar "foods"
Seriously the stuff is definately an aquired taste. If you can eat an anchovy you might like it. It is however the best beef stock substitute when making vegitarian soups.

4. And yet, we allow lead-contaminated tamarind candy into the US.
Just another illegal Mexican import.

Mexican candy and vegemite should have a fight to see which one is more vomitous.

6. I'm voting for the tamarind candy.
Mostly because it's so viscous that it just attaches itself to everything. In HS, my friends and I tried most of the stuff from www.bad-candy.com Yep, we were self-destructive idiots. I've probably done more damage to myself with that shit, than I have with drugs, which is relatively impressive.

Vegemite's the national dish Down Under. You don't insult an Australian's tukker without serious consequences.

Expect lots of dangerous snakes and insects to be "accidentally" imported. The Yanks must be taught!

Kanga steaks are very yummie, I agree. Not quite as nice as reindeer, though, and, with the latter, there's always the chance you'll be the lucky one that gets the glowing red nose.

32. Not at all.
I always describe it as "what steak should taste like." It's got the most amazing flavor; rich yet delicate. Just perfect. You just have to keep repeating to yourself 'This is not Rudolph. This is not Rudolph,' while you're eating, and it's fine.

36. This decision is as dumb as a box of rocks
Here in Oz they add folate to certain brands of fruit juices and milk, for crying out loud. What the hell are they afraid of ??

Personally I love the stuff - Vegemite on buttered toast and a mug of strong black tea, no sugar - Breakfast of Champions.

38. The greatest song ever that mentions Vegemite.
Possibly also the only song that mentions Vegemite, but still...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jd1AT7V4-E8


"Down Under" - Men at Work

Traveling in a fried-out combie
On a hippie trail, head full of zombie
I met a strange lady, she made me nervous
She took me in and gave me breakfast
And she said,

"Do you come from a land down under?
Where women glow and men plunder?
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover."

Buying bread from a man in Brussels
He was six foot four and full of muscles
I said, "Do you speak-a my language?"
He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich
And he said,

"I come from a land down under
Where beer does flow and men chunder
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover."

Lying in a den in Bombay
With a slack jaw, and not much to say
I said to the man, "Are you trying to tempt me
Because I come from the land of plenty?"
And he said,

"Oh! Do you come from a land down under? (oh yeah yeah)
Where women glow and men plunder?
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover."

The jingle itself is from the 1950's or 60's - not sure which.


The term "happy little Vegemites" is still used widely here.
