We Tried Vegemite!


8th grader trying Vegemite


After Miss W and Davo came to visit, they left a tube of Vegemite to try.  Vegemite is a common spread people from Australia use over toast and crackers.  It looks like chocolate, smells like gravy, and tastes salty and creamy!  The students in Kindergarten, 4th, 5th, and 8th grade tried it on Friday.  Most liked it!
