I just bought a jar of Vegemite!  I'd never seen it around here, and grabbed it the second I laid eyes on it, because I've wanted to try it ever since Men at Works' Down Under. Grin

The trouble is, I foolishly didn't check the expiration date until I got home.  I haven't opened it yet, and am trying to decide if I should try and return it.  It supposedly expired in February, but from what I've read online, it's supposedly like honey and virtually never goes bad so long as you don't contaminate the jar with butter or something.

Does anyone know for sure?

It doesn't really go off. Also, when you try it use it sparingly it's very strong... though i personally slather it on my toast

on a side note, vegemite is really good for mouth ulcers

I can't answer your question (though what I hear about it I can't just imagine how it could ever get spoiled...)

But I wanted to add this Smiley
Quote from: Terry Prachtett, The Last Continent
Then another insight struck him at the speed of beer. Beer! It was only water, really, with stuff in it. Wasn't it? And most of what was in it was yeast, which was practically a medicine and definitely a food. In fact, when you thought about it beer was only a kind of runny bread, in fact, it 'd be better to use some of the beer in the soup! Beer soup! A few brain cells registered their doubt, but the rest of them grabbed them by the collar and said hoarsely, people cooked chicken in wine, didn't they?

[...]
A blob eventually came loose. Rincewind tasted it, gingerly. It was just possible that if you mixed yeasty beer and vegetables together you'd getó
No, what you got was salty-tasting beery brown gunk.
Odd, though . . . It was kind of horrible, but nevertheless Rincewind found himself having another taste.
Oh, gods. Now he was really thirsty.

If it looks normal then it is probably fine but I did have a jar go mouldy once so it can happen.Assuming it was properly sealed then I wouldn't pay much attention to the experation date.

The only thing I know about vegemite, I learned from a song lyric. Smiley

Vegemite has a half life, rather than an expiry date- it doesn't go off. It can't!

Thanks, everybody!  I didn't have a chance to check this before I had to make a decision; I went ahead and returned it, since I wasn't sure.  I'm hoping they'll get a new batch soon.

So, what does it taste like?  And how does it compare to Marmite?
