a new taste
« on: November 10, 2014, 11:49:20 pm »
I am thinking of ordering a jar of vegimite from Amazon.  I have not tasted it yet, so I feel I should.

The shipping is free, but I'd like to make it worth twice.  So I am tinking of including in it another item.

What would you suggest me to order for another new taste, "very" different from common ingredients or combinations?  Thanks.  --- tk

Are you looking for something else specific to Australia? That's where Vegemite is popular.  I think, too, one must have to grow up eating the stuff.  I have tried it, but don't like it. On the other hand, give me peanut butter any day!

Hi TK, it very much depends on what you judge "common". If you don't know Nutella, try that.
It's a chocolate-hazelnut spread. Very popular in Germany, not only with kids.


I suppose Vegemite tastes like Marmite? I think it's OK in small quantities, otherwise it has too much salt for my taste.
If it's not used by a native speaker it's not idiomatic. And idiom trumps grammar every time. Jack Wilkerson†

Yes, Vegemite is a bit like Marmite only far superior.  ;D
When you get your jar of Vegemite you will have to let us know what you think of the taste, TK.  Those who haven't grown up with it usually don't care for it. We always have a jar of Vege in the cupboard.
As the old ad says 'It puts a rose in every cheek!'

Bertha ---  I often say "I am nuts about nuts."  I love to put a spoonful of peanut butter in my mouth; it makes me smile.

Gene ---  I once had rattle-snake fries.  I'd like to try your suggestions, but several years ago I decided to make myself a pescetarian.  Please give me some other suggestions.

Britta ---  I have a jar of nutella in the fridge, nearly empty because it tends to disappear into my mouth.

Darryl ---  I sure will let you know.  --- tk

Sometimes when colleagues from India come to this office (England) they bring things from their country for us to try. I find it a strange experience, because usually when I am putting something into my mouth to eat, I have an idea of what it will taste like. However, with many of the Indian foods, I have no clue, so it is a total surprise. I cannot really describe it, sort of like if you walk somewhere with your eyes closed and have no idea where you are going, you are surprised when you get there.

Davel ---  I have tasted mango chutney and pepper-seasoned dried mango.  I think they are Indian tastes.  If you let me know the names of food items with totally new tastes, I'd love to look for and try them.  --- tk

I envy you, Darryl.  Fresh well-ripe mangoes are hard to beat.

You should try a buffalo burger!

Thanks, Bertha, but not for a pescetarian.  --- tk

I assume you have already eaten sushi in all its variant forms?
