Always loved vegemite
Always loved vegemite. Honestly would say I was addicted to it from an early age. Ate it for Breakfast lunch and dinner when I was a child. And even some days now. But for some reason it now just tastes dull. Don't know what you have done but I don't like the change. It should go back to the way it was. It didn't need to be changed so why are you changing it?
I WOULD GIVE THE ORIGINAL 10 STARS IF I COULD
BUT I'M FORCED TO GIVE THIS CURRENT IMPOSTER MAYBE 3
The recipe has been changed from the original
My kids love vegemite - They also love peanut butter but the primary school has a No Nut policy due to allergies, so its always been Vegemite. I bought a new jar at Coles near me, and last week, the kids tell me they dont like it anymore. I asked them why, and they said it tastes funny. I then tried it, and it doesnt taste anything like it used to. Not buying it anymore. So disappointing as I love the original recipe too. PLEASE bring back the original recipe. Was it changed to get vegan certification? If so, its now awful.
Not Vegemite I knew and loved
As soon as I tasted new jar of vegemite something was different, it didn't taste right. I didn't enjoy it. When I examined it I noticed texture was soft and it was glossy. This was not the vegemite I loved and enjoyed. Please bring back the vegemite I loved!
What have they done to Vegemite
I thought I was going crazy. Stuck my knife to scrape out the vegemite like I have been doing for the past 50 years, nearly scooped out the whole jar. Soooo soft???? What have they done. Not to mention the new label, very disappointed. I will have to think about if I will buy again. So sad.
The backlash is beginning
Most people have Vegemite in the cupboard but it takes a while to get throuh it. It gets bought infrequently. We recently bought a new jar. The new jar is a like an old stale jar of Vegemite that has gone too hard and tastes bad. (I thought maybe this is a ploy to force people to buy it in the plastic tube travel pack which works out much more expensive.) I decided to search whether other people think something is wrong and found many complaints.
I would not buy this new formula product again. It needs to be fixed.
Ironically, this Australian icon was created by an American multinational but has now been wrecked by its new Australian owners. I pray Arnotts does not come back into Australian ownership if this is what happens.

Try Salt Reduced Vegemite
Twice I have written to Vegemite, on both occassions the reviews seem to have been stifled. Having found this page I agree with the comments on the product, how-ever recently I picked up a 25% SALT REDUCED VEGEMITE on 'special' from Coles in a smaller than usual jar, this seems quite close in taste to the original. It looks slightly syrupy but certainly give it a try .
New vegemite, it’s awful, awful awful!
Been eating vegemite for 64 years, buy several jars at once. Opened new jar...yuuuuuck! I could cry! What the heck has happened? Will donate as I hate waste but where do I get the old recipe . Bega, do taste tests in store because I’ll not waste money buying more vegemite without a taste first. So so very Sad. Gave it one star only because I couldn’t post without it
Why, just why?
What have you done to our Australian icon Vegemite? Do not tell me for one second this recipe is the same as the original. I noticed it straight away when I opened the jar. I thought I was going crazy seeing a glossy, soft jelly like consistantcy spread hijacking the jar. My daughter then confirmed I wasn't crazy and commented it is sooo not the original vegimite. Does not taste the same. What an absolute shame! My whole family have been eating this our whole lives. You have just lost another devoted vegemite family. Let me know if the original recipe comes back. Until then, Goodbye Vegemite. I'm going to go now so I can cry!

Questions & Answers
Has recipe changed produce is harder in latest jar just opened
Your description is what people are complaining about. The harder more dense consistency (like stale product) means something in the production process has changed. A noticeable difference in taste as well is also being cited. Bega is just not responding. Instead they now have a new marketing campaign based on patriotism.
Hello bega, are you taking notice of these vegemite complaints?
