  1. Nevermind - I found it here: Simply British Foods.com I'm not sure why but it seems that my daughter who lives in California absolutely needs some that comes in a Squeezy bottle. All is well.

      If you ever need in the jars they sell it at Super Store next to the peanut butter (I think). I'm sure it would be MUCH cheaper.

        yeah I saw that today-- didnt look at the price

    2. Aren't these pretty much at every grocery in Canada? I know it's next to impossible to find in the states, but in Canada it seems to be everywhere.

      We have a jar of the awful stuff (vegemite) that I'd love to tell my partner mysteriously disappeared.

        Marmite is available everywhere...but not squeezy Marmite! I haven't seen Vegemite forever. According to Snopes it's a hoax that it's not allowed in the states - individuals can bring some to the country, it's just not for commercial use, Which by the way is okay with me! I will be curious to see why she wants it. She's a wonderful cook - maybe she'll have a surprise for us.

          I've seen Vegemite in the Vancouver stores next to the Marmite as recently as last month. From what I've heard, they're more expensive than what you'd pay in the UK and Australia.

            Where in Vancouver did you find Vegemite? I've been looking everywhere and haven't been able to find it. Lots of marmite though

              Sorry for the late response. I purchased the Vegemite at Nester's Market downtown. You might want to call them to confirm they still have some.

      2. I have a few containers of this from a friend returning from Australia..how do I eat it??

          On buttered toast is the most traditional way, I believe.

          1. re: burlgurl

            My husband (Australian) eats in on buttered toast with or without avocado.

            1. re: burlgurl

              Ton's of ways to prepare, You need to make toast and let it go cold and then add butter and then a thinlayer of veg it is not like peanut butter, it is also nice with bread butter and cheese preferabley white cheddar (mmm, I am getting hungry)

            2. For Vegemite in Calgary..

              British Pantry
              125-4820 Northland Drive NW

              You can't buy it anymore at Safeway etc. I heard it was due to non-compliance on providing bilingual labeling.

              1. Anyone have a source for Vegemite in Vancouver?
