Marmite or Vegemite?

This made me laugh:
U.S. President Barack Obama, in response to a question in March 2011 during a joint visit with Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard to a high school in Virginia, gave his impression of Vegemite by stating "Its horrible" and, following a description by Ms. Gillard, summarised it with "So it's like a quasi-vegetable by-product paste that you smear on your toast for breakfast sounds good, doesn't it?".

And plum yoghurt? wtf?
So there is no more plum yogurt in the UK?

I eat any mite, Vegemite is my preferred one. I have enjoyed the NZ Marmite but the factory was destroyed in the earthquake and it's been unavailable ever since

It now sells for between 45 and 75 dollars a jar on ebay.

Believe me if a similar fate befell Vegemite it would be discussed in Parliament
