Latest Craters

The latest Vegemite craters......

...Oh yes, and there is still no sign of Cheesybite at my local supermarket...still selling NoName and iSnack 2.0.....

The biggest crater ....

Of course, the biggest crater you will find in your jar of Vegemite is this one......

an empty jar!

Curiously, that last bit of Vegemite you scrape out from under the rim always seems to taste the best....I don't know why, it just does!
Perhaps it's the taste buds anticipation of your hard earned scrapings from the empty jar?

Still Waiting

I am still yet to see a jar of Cheesybite on the shelves at the supermarket. In fact today when I had a good look, I noted that not only are they still selling "iSnack 2.0" but they still have stock of "Name Me" !!!!
Do you think the whole "Cheesybite" thing was just a scam to make us buy more name me, isnack2.0 ???

...for those that haven't noticed yet, I've added the classic Asteroids video game to the bottom of this blog page above the moon of the day photo

...used to play this one at the video game arcade when I was a teenager..(yeah, that long ago!)... enjoy!

Hot Off The Presses ...(and onto the toast!) has been a while since I've had any craters in my Vegemite, but tonight I felt like a snack (I'm waiting up late for Michelle to arrive back from a trip to Melbourne with her friends) and as luck would have it I needed to crack open a new jar as the last of the old jar was used on the 'potholes' breakfast. And there they were!...a long time coming but some good craters!

Dark Side of The Mo read that right. Dark Side of the Mo.

It's actually a promotional T-Shirt for Movember.
Movember is when Mo-Bro's grow a moustache to raise funds for Prostate Cancer research and male depression.

This is a cause close to my heart as I have personally been treated for deep depression twice in the last decade and have relatives who also suffer from depression.

You can donate here on my sponsorship page.

Cheesy Name?

It's now official, the "Name Me / iSnack 2.0" Vegemite / Cream Cheese Spread has now been dubbed Vegemite Cheesybite . Apparently 30,357 people voted, choosing from six suggested new names and Cheesybite won with 36% of the vote.....
I suppose anyone who bought an iSnack 2.0 jar should keep it....might be a collectors piece!

iSnack - apparently not!

The "Name Me" Vegemite/Cream Cheese spread combo was named "iSnack 2.0", ...but only for a few days. Apparently public outcry has prompted them to retreat with their tail between their legs and think again.
Personally (even though I did not like the product) I didn't think that the name was too bad an effort...a little bit web generation etc. . . .
My first reaction to the news of the withdrawal of the i Snack name was to think a certain fruit flavoured IT company had laid claim to prefixing any product with an 'i', but that hasn't been mentioned.
My guess is whatever name it gets now will be fairly staid and boring!
Prove me wrong Kraft.....

follow up on No Name Vegemite

...we did buy some of the yet to be named Vegemite/Cheese spread....
The fact that I haven't commented on it already probably says
Tried once, it has sat in the fridge for weeks with only a fraction of its contents consumed and is destined to end up supplementing the dog's dinner one interesting to see if they turn their noses up at it. . . .
I used to eat Vegemite and Cheese sandwiches as a child but obviously the taste doesn't appeal anymore as an adult.
Good luck Kraft! Perhaps someone out there likes it, but for me it's just not cricket!
Born n bred on the real stuff....and hope to die eating the real stuff!

The new Vegemite

By now everyone should have heard of the New Vegemite, the one they are releasing that has been blended with cream cheese. Hard to imagine what it will taste like as cream cheese tastes different to say cheddar which most people would have tried with vegemite on a sandwich or cracker. The benefits they say are that it will be a more 'dip' like consistency but still taste like vegemite....
And as with the original product, we the general public get to name the new product...see the vegemite website.
I will definitely be trying it and reporting back here with my verdict!
