Vegemite is a dark brown Australian food paste made from leftover brewers’ yeast extract with various vegetable and spice additives developed by Cyril P. Callister in Melbourne, Victoria, in 1922. Vegemite is used as a spread for sandwiches, toast, crumpets and cracker biscuits as well as a filling for pastries, and is similar to British, New Zealand and South African Marmite,
It doesn’t sound good, but confectionery company Cadbury has released a limited edition chocolate infused with Australia’s favourite spread, Vegemite. Cadbury made the announcement via a grand 20-second video on Twitter. “Yes, it’s surprisingly delicious,” the ad claims of the bizarre concoction. The packaging describes the product as “Dairy Milk milk chocolate with smooth flowing caramel and Vegemite”. The new chocolate will hit shelves in Australia on June 1. Cadbury New Zealand told the Herald online there are no plans to reveal the limited edition block here.
For the future there are many ideas for different chocolate versions with most popular among those the corn chips and avocado version / flavour.
