Raising a nation of wimpy kids.


(itsbitingme.tumblr.com)

Vegemite single-handedly raised us and, until now, our children to be tough,
able to tolerate a slathering of black, tarry, salty yeast extract
on their morning toast.

Vegemite Cheesymite is making our kids wooses,
no longer able to tolerate that great Australian delicacy,
now an affront to their delicate taste buds.

Fair dinkum.
Where will it end?

Next thing we know,
they will be wanting to put real meat in the great Australian meat pie.

I agree with CP - there is something about Vegemite that is GREAT. I must be honest in telling you that I have never tried the WIMPY KID Vegemite variety after the whole name debarkle.

The wimpy kid stuff needs to be kept in the fridge after opening. More crap to fill up the shelves and get forgotten about, then buffed out after a few months.! Give me the real stuff any day! And I'm not even a real Aussie!

The cheesyite went off at our house. Not only because not even the 5-year-old liked it, but because of the overlooked "REFRIDGERATE AFTER OPENING" label.

Real Vegemite never goes off....

Eeww, that stuff looks freaky. Vegemite is part of our heritage is it not?!

I KNOW!! Shocking! :) Although, my two eldest won't eat vegemite, or tomato sauce. Sometimes I don't know if they are Australian! Where did I go wrong with my parenting!
