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!
