Fatty, sugary breakfast

    If anything can be more disgusting its yet to be discovered.....

    Coupled with Fosters lager, that and Vegemite say an awful lot about Aussie taste buds.....

    It's unusual to see the words 'Australian' and 'taste' occur in a sentence that doesn't also contain the words 'lack of'.

    Cheers, Jeff

    I loathe Marmite so I expect I wouldn't care for Vegemite much and I believe I have expressed in another thread that I think a Fosters shandy is a waste of lemonade- if it's the only lager on in a pub I either drink something else or leave

    I'm reminded of a certain morning after in 2010. We were going to a gig and Dave reminded me "We've got a big day tomorrow (this was the eve of the High Voltage festival) so we mustn't drink San Miguel"

    Next morning Dave groans "Why did we drink San Miguel?"
    "It was that or Fosters"
    "Fair enough that makes sense"

    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    Yep, no-one chooses low salt in a taste test. These are deeply embedded survival responses......even if now they lead you to not survive.

    One has a very expensive little red disc; the other doesn't.

    Wot? No haggis, tattie scone and grilled tomato?

    Be fair, for the extra couple of hundred quid the LF1 equivalent would have cost, you got a longer guarantee period, a slightly different case and a copy of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.

    Oh, and bragging rights of course... ;)

    IIRC Vegemite is the more palatable version in Australia/NZ, and whatever they call Marmite down there is a pale imitation of its UK self. If this was Wikipedia it would be marked 'citation required' but I can't be bothered to do the legwork. ;)

    When I was a kid, back in the 50s, there was a rumour that that Marmite, because it was made by Seventh Day Adventists, contained meat products. This was to make catholics sin, by eating meat on Fridays. I don't know if this is why my parents bought Vegemite......

    Antipodean Marmite has a different recipe to the real thing. Most notably it contains sugar and caramel.

    Given that we would all be healthier if we could get away from sweetened foods I am not sure I would be any good to blind testers.

    Nope. Andouilette.

    The author flatters it.

    I have Swedish relations and the foulest smelling food I've ever encountered was Surströmming - fermented Baltic Sea herring.

    Dear Rog,

    Obviously the ideal fish course before andouillette as a meat course, possibly with durian fruit as dessert.

    Having read the link you posted Roger I think you may have a point.....

    To be fair I have never tried Vegemite. Then again, the first time I tried andouille it wasn't too bad. Now I can't get it within a foot of my nose. I understand that there are regional variations, but even so...

    I'm afraid I'm not that keen on haggis or tattle scones. Grilled tomato, yes that's a good shout and I'd include that, probably even above mushrooms

    I adore haggis but have only ever had the leftovers for breakfast...mixed into leftover mashed potato/swede mix and fried as 'haggis rissoles'. Delicious!
