Want to try a Vegemite icy pole? Here's the recipe

Vegemite icy poles. Yes ...
Vegemite icy poles. Yes ...

Another day, another Vegemite option it seems.

This time the stuff that was once simply a breakfast staple across the nation is being frozen.

Yes, icy poles.

The thought of brown frozen treats hasn’t exactly thrilled everyone but Vegemite, with a twist, is causing waves in cyberspace again.

Only a couple of months ago, Vegemite shouted about its “premium recipe”.

Vegemite Blend 17 was available for a limited time. It had a premium price attached at almost double the original recipe.

Maybe summer’s icy DIY option is a return to their roots?

But, if you’re a Vegemite lover – give it a go!
