“Vegemite is the Australian version of Marmite”

Marmite is a British savory food spread, first made in 1902. Vegemite is a thick, dark brown Australian food spread, first made in 1922.
     
“Vegemite seems to be the Australia-New Zealand version of marmite, a British product. Both are yeast extracts” was printed in the Centre Daily Times (State College, PA) on November 21, 1983. “Vegemite is the Australian version of Marmite, and is weaker tasting” was posted on the newsgroup alt.society.generation-x on August 31, 1994. “Vegemite is the Australian version of Marmit” was posted on the newsgroup rec.food.veg on December 30, 1998. “Vegemite is the Australian version of Marmite” was posted on Twitter by Geoff Major on April 17, 2010. “Vegemite is the Australian version of Marmite” was posted on Reddit—Unpopularopinion on June 28, 2021.
   
       
Wikipedia: Vegemite
Vegemite (/ˈvɛdʒimaɪt/ VEJ-i-myte) is a thick, dark brown Australian food spread made from leftover brewers’ yeast extract with various vegetable and spice additives. It was developed by Cyril Callister in Melbourne, Victoria, in 1922.
 
Wikipedia: Marmite
Marmite (/ˈmɑːrmaɪt/ MAR-myte) is a British savoury food spread, based on yeast extract invented by the German scientist Justus von Liebig. It is made from by-products of beer brewing (see Lees (fermentation)) and is produced by the British company Unilever. Marmite is a vegan source of B vitamins, including supplemental vitamin B12. A traditional use is to spread it very thinly on buttered toast.

Vegemite is the Australian version of Marmite, and is weaker tasting, so it certainly wouldn’t be that. (both are yeast extract - marketed during the war as a source of B vitamins).

[Vegemite is the Australian version of Marmit. To non-fans of yeast extract they taste the same, but We can tell 😉 ]

Vegemite is the Australian version of Marmite.
I don’t know about you guys, but it kinda irks me that a lot of people on Reddit seem to imply that Vegemite is some unique shit that Australia has.
 
It is just a slightly tinkered about with version of Marmite that they only developed because Australians started to cry hard that marmite was not being delivered in the midst of a fucking World War.
