An Old Favourite

When I was at school mum would sometimes make Cruskits spread with butter and vegemite for my playlunch/recess.  They were always sligthy soft and a bit chewy by the time I got to eat them in the middle of the morning.  Today I spread some cruskits that had been left on the table from the night before with vegemite and butter.  They were sooooo good - a bit chewy, because they were not kept in an airtight container, but still melt in the mouth. -DELICIOUS.  I ate three rounds of them!

Where can you buy cruskits in Vancouver?

Berry Queen, for god's sake don't spread it too thick! Most people just smear it onto their toast, at least until you are accustom to the taste, and besides it's really, really salty! I love it under avocado on toast and lots of people love vegemite and cheese sandewiches (a bit of a standard sandewiche for lots of Aussie kids). Make sure you let us know what you think!<br />

Faucon - when did you try it?

Apparently they do have Vegemite here in Vancouver at the Nester's Market downtown - so i will go find it maybe next week! That's my challenge. :)<br />
Oh! wow what a pleasure!!! I researched further...... seems there is a store 20 min away from me that carries this product. I am going there in 2 weeks and I certainly will stop there and buy some.

lol... yes we do have JELLY..... JAM......nutmella, peanut butter, all sorts of stuff but no vegemite. However if I look carefully in the international section at the supermarket, I probably could find vegemite. Thanks for the challenge and I can look for it and try it out! Speaking of trying stuff, have you found Canadian stuff on your end? I drink Australian wine here - they sell international wines and its delicious. :)

Hmmmm, plastic cheese spread?<br />
<br />
I KNOW!!!! Phildelphia (sp?) cheese!

True, and I think even less salt. So what do they do for that salty-on-toast taste?

Well actually, their peanut butter has less sugar than ours does.

Sorry WG. I humbly apologise for mixing desert with toast.<br />
<br />
I wonder if they have savoury spreads over there?

Wash your mouth out Roj (fingers). You shouldn't even have the J word and toast in the same sentence!

Hope it's not ... that stuff... called ... Jelly ?????

I know! I mean what DO you have on toast???

Kraft have some serious PR work to do in Canada.

It's so hard to believe that you guys haven't heard of vegemite!

Ah, I have never heard of vegemite! When I saw the word, I thought vegetarian mites - as a joke! <br />
ugghhh... too yucky the way it sounds but I'm sure if you offered it to me but don't tell me its vegemites! hahaha!

That is really, really strange.. I made a comment on nere about an hours ago and it hasn't turned up?? Very strange?? It was a really long one too!<br />
<br />
Okay, here we go again! Des, I can't believe you don't know what vegemite is, you must be living on another planet ;) (like canada!) Vegemite is (from wiki)<br />
<br />
Vegemite is made from used brewers' yeast extract, a by-product of beer manufacturing, and various vegetable and spice additives. It is salty, slightly bitter, and malty — similar to beef bouillon. The texture is smooth and sticky. It is not as intensely flavoured as British Marmite and it is less sweet than the New Zealand version of Marmite<br />

Basically, micororganism droppings/crap mixed with lots of salt - sounds yum huh?<br />
<br />
Cruskits are just savory crackers with a airy texture that melts in your mouth or can be very crunchy it you munch it all up.<br />
<br />
