Prepare yourself, because this is probably the least-gross item on the list. Vegemite is a hot commodity in Australia, and while it’s similar to Marmite — which is more widely eaten — Vegemite has its own special taste.

It’s salty, bitter, malty, and similar to beef bouillon. It’s rare that somebody who hasn’t been brought up on the stuff enjoys it at first taste.
