To Celebrate Cadbury’s Vegemite-Filled Chocolate, Here Are Our Favourite Yeast Spread Hacks

It’s not a hoax. It’s not a spoof. Cadbury’s Vegemite-flavoured chocolate is really happening. On June 1, Australians will find out whether their favourite yeast spread works as a sugary dessert. To commemorate this bold taste combination, we’ve assembled our favourite Vegemite hacks from the Lifehacker archives. Enjoy.

Cadbury isn’t the first company to hack Vegemite in weird and wonderful ways. Here are some other examples you can enjoy while waiting for this abomination to slither into candy stores and opium dens. (Naturally, we’ll be giving it the full taste-test treatment in the weeks to come. May God have mercy on our souls.)

Taste Test: Pizza Hut Mitey Stuffed Crust

The deceptively-titled “Mitey Stuffed Crust Pizza” takes a regular cheese-filled crust and infuses it with Australia’s favourite breakfast spread. We’ve since tasted the product ourselves and found it to be surprisingly moreish — here is the Lifehacker verdict.

SodaStream Plus Vegemite: Yes, Sodamite Is Truly A Taste Sensation

We know that the SodaStream Genesis works well as a source of carbonated drinks. We know that it’s more economical if you use your own flavours. And we’re an Australian site.

Add Mint To A Vegemite Sandwich For A Great Flavour Kick

The basic Vegemite sandwich is an Aussie lunch classic. You can make it much more interesting by adding some chopped mint.


  • Also dab of vegemite behind the ears will deter drop bears from falling on you when you go camping.

  • Gently cut open a pasty so you can fold the top of the pastry off…..spread some vegemite on the pastry and close again…..its not too bad!

  • > Hot buttered toast (darker breads like rye work well)
    > Thin coat of vegemite
    > Scrambled or poached egg on top

    Savoury flavour of the Vegemite enhances the taste of the eggs and the egg acts like a delicious medium for the Vegemite. Can also add avocado into the mix. Yum.

  • Vegemite on fruit loaf is my favourite.
    Vegemite on canned chicken was OK.
    Vegemite on kimchi was…. Not too bad.
