Cadburys latest attempt to reach out to the diaspora comes in the form of Cadburys Vegemite bar. This bar , for obvious reasons is only available in Australia and I'm sure for a very limited time. Tony Davison in Sydney kindly posted one of these bars to me for tasting.
Now , being a child of the 70's/80's I grew up with great shows from both Australia and the USA and I was convinced that Australians had only a diet of Vegemite and fosters while the USA type persons were weaned on pb&j sambos and diet soda!!
Over the years we had visitors from both continents come stay with us and I dreamed of going to live in either of their countries, in fact I still do and would have no qualms in fucking off leaving this country , I am not sentimental about possessions nor people but know full well who I would keep contact with and viva versa.
I digress, the Vegemite bar arrived in the post today from Tony and Eileen in Sydney and no time was wasted in testing it.
First up ....the kid test. They all loved it and had no comment only " yeah , that's nice" . Why? Kids are kids and company's love 'em because they wolf down stuff and taste with their eyes and for that reason want more of it? Liz couldn't make her mind up if she liked it or not it had that kind of taste to it, but she did pick out the caramel taste which is in the chocolate. Leigh all but gawked on the floor with its taste!
Me , I had to dissect the square to see what was inside . It was akin to a caramelo bar in texture and form , but.......... it tasted like Bovril wrapped in chocolate to me. Need I say anymore?
In case you missed it........ ITS LIKE BOVRIL WRAPPED IN CHOCOLATE FFS.....WHY????.
Thank you Tony for taking the time to send me the bar , does Australian lobster differ in taste to our lobster? I don't know but send me some and I will gladly review it for you, Seriously!
