They wouldn't DARE ban Marmite...can't say I like Vegemite but then again I'm Kiwi not Australian I am a Marmite girl... and yep we love the crunchies, freddo's everything else in your photo! ENJOY and what a nice friend you have..I would have eaten it before it got in the package...

yum scrum... was thinkin of you guys as i munched on my vegemite toast this morning! won't feel so guilty now, knowing you guys will be enjoying it too! :)


Yay! Maltesers, aw! Now I'm just jealous!


so glad you got your vegemite, i was actually thinking of you the other day !! when i was at the supermarket, as i bought some vegemite !!
let me know if you when you want some more !
take care
PS I know what it's like to live away from home !


I love maltesers! I got so addicted to them in England, and American whoppers are just not even in the same league. I've eaten vegemite often growing up in Hawaii my best friends parents were from Australia and Singapore so we always had really interesting meals over there. Vegemite was a staple for them but I must say although I ate it I was never quite in love with it. Haha. It is nice to have things from home though.


Dont you just love it.. pieces of memories from home.. how wonderful.. yeah for you guys.. its these little things.. that make home seem not so far away..


We were lucky enought to bring a 2KG bucket of vegemite with us when we moved here. I would not have lasted without it. There are so many other things fro home I am missing.


nothing like a little taste of home, especially at the Holidays!

Hi Emily:

Thanks for the challenge on DW Color you helped me to kick it up a notch :)


Rachel Greig

Em, I'm even sitting here IN Australia, and that parcel off goodies is making my mouth water!!!!


Hooray! I love care packages from home (only my home is not so far... Idaho). I'll have to try a little of your vegemite, but only a little, on a cracker or something. I know it's precious. :) I also need to come over and look at your Thailand pictures. My sister gave my dad a scrapbook for his birthday with pictures from their trip to Thailand and it was beautiful!


anytime, sweetie, anytime.

hey E just catching up on your blog
you know Trader Joes sells weetabix! Also look out for "Brit food stores" in your local area. There are a few about, most sell stuff like maltesers/boosts etc, and Crisps. I *think* they sell vegemite too!
