If you shuddered at the thought of new Coke, check this (http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/story/0,25197,25636488-2702,00.html) out:



While the exact recipe is a closely held secret, the new Vegemite experience is, according to Kraft, basically regular Vegemite combined with cream cheese.

"It's made to use with dips, carrot sticks, celery sticks -- very much the Vegemite for snacking," said Kraft Foods head of corporate affairs Simon Talbot.


Is nothing sacred anymore?

How about variations on thread titles, like: Spreading the Vegemite of a New Word; or the New Word of a Spreading Vegemite; or New Vegemite, the Spreading of a Word :D

Vegemite is that watered-down, chewy, Antipodean Marmite, right?

Right. But Marmite is sacred. So is Bovril.

Out with the French Onion dip and in with the Vegemite dip. May trial it at the next BBQ.

Vegemite, now in three new flavors! Apple-cinnamon, French vanilla, and raspberry. Try them all today!

Some things are too sacred to joke about. It sounds yucky mum.

Perhaps this will make it taste better than wet cardboard.

If I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times: stop chewing on those empty toilet paper rolls.

We'll see who's laughing at the World Cup in 2010. Right?

...Right?

What, you mean England haven't qualified yet? Oh, sorry! We thought everyb- wait, you mean that, except for the host nation themselves, Australia were the first? Well, how 'bout that!

It's still watered-down, chewy Antipodean Marmite.

Now I need me some toast with butter and Marmite... and a soft boiled egg to dunk it in. BRB :D

New Coke? Pepsi just came out with Throwback Pepsi, which is made with real sugar (instead of the high-fructose corn stuff). I believe it is the original formula, and the taste did (does) take me back. I hope Coke does the same thing, then puts it in those little hourglass-shaped bottles, and distributes it in those water filled chest coolers that had the thread-the-bottle-through-the-maze release mechanism. I'll run out and scrounge some old baby-buggy wheels, a wooden produce crate, some two-by-four scraps and a length of rope and make a go-cart with Little Fizzy.
