Vegemite

If you've never heard of Vegemite, you're probably not alone. While it's hugely popular in Australia, it hasn't really caught on quite as quickly here in the states. What is it? Well, it's a salty, malty, and somewhat bitter spread made from leftover brewer's yeast and spices. And you don't spread it on toast the way you would butter; this stuff's best applied as a very thin scraping. Definitely worth a try at least once, and it'd make a great gift for any displaced Aussie you know. $15.95 USD.

Unless that's an absolutely enormous jar of vegemite, you can find it cheaper than $16. I got a 4 oz. jar for $5 at World Market, and four ounces will last a good while.
