If you’re an Australian living in Houston, you might be craving for a taste of home. And nothing says home more than Vegemite, the iconic Australian spread that has been a staple of Aussie breakfasts for almost a century. But finding Vegemite in the US is not easy, as most Americans are not fond of its salty and savory flavor. So where can you get your Vegemite fix in Houston?
One option is to visit World Market, a store that sells products from around the world. There are eight World Market locations in Houston, but the one in the Heights is the most reliable source of Vegemite. However, be prepared to pay a premium price for this imported delicacy. A 250g jar of Vegemite will cost you $9.99USD, which is more than double the price of a 560g jar in Australia ($9.40 AUD).
Another option is to order Vegemite online from Amazon, which offers a smaller 150g jar for $8USD. This might be more convenient and affordable, but you’ll have to wait for the delivery and hope that it doesn’t get lost or damaged in transit.
Whichever option you choose, you’ll be rewarded with a jar of Vegemite that is rich in Vitamin B and nutrients, and has a distinctive taste that is loved by millions of Australians. Vegemite is more than just a spread; it’s a part of Australia’s history and culture, and a symbol of national pride.
So, whether you’re an Aussie missing the flavors of home or anyone feeling a touch of homesickness, indulge in Vegemite to transport your taste buds back to the comforting embrace of familiar flavors. Just remember to spread it thinly on toast or crackers, and enjoy it with some butter, cheese or avo. And don’t forget to share it with your friends and family, and maybe even convert some Americans to the Vegemite fan club. Cheers!
