Australia-Texas Exchange Complete!

Our message from Lori:

"My life before Milo was a pleasant life, by all accounts a good life. But, now that my friends in Australia have introduced me to Milo, tiny little bluebirds hover nearby warbling bits from Purcell and Sinatra, and total strangers stop me to give me affectionate hugs and large sums of money. Why? Who knows...except I suspect it's not only because Milo is THAT GOOD, but sharing fun around the world makes even the best chocolate drink mix even tastier.

BIG CHOCOLATELY THANKS to Thom and Rikki for being such cool cultural ambassadors!

P.S. -- I need instructions for how/with what to eat Vegamite. I tasted it (YOWZA) and suspect there's some tradition involved that's not completely intuitive to a Texas gal."

IMHO Vegemite is best eaten on toast with lots of butter. Spread it reasonably thinly.

It also makes for a pretty good sandwich, especially if you add Tasty cheese.

(I'm an Aussie ex-Pom brought up on Bovril and Marmite. Vegemite kicks both their arses.)

Bovril does rule somewhat. I mean It don't beat vegimite, but as an aussie brung up on tha big V and then introduced to bovril, it is very good. And, you can't turn vagimite into a horrid drink!

Ok,
Unless you grow up with Vegemite, you will never really love it the way the Aussies do.
However!!!! As a Canadian/Aussie, I will tell you the easiest way to introduce your taste buds is to spread a thin layer on a Ritz cracker with another layer of ricotta cheese on the top. This is actually delicious!!!!
If you introduce Vegemite to babies as young as 6 months old... spread on an Arrowroot biscuit... the first reaction is startling, but soon they love it. Great to give babies on their toast fingers. Once they have a taste for it.. they will always like it. An alternative for peanut butter sands in school lunches!!!
Good luck adapting your taste buds!

It is great to observe somebody put enough craze towards a matter. I'm thankful that I stumbled upon this process. I am lucky I used the time to read on past the 1st paragraph. You have got a whole lot to say, very much to offer. I really hope guys understand this and look into your page.
