It’s been a staple in Aussie kitchens for over 90 years, with over 22 million jars of the tasty spread (or not-so tasty, depending on your opinion) being sold each year.
Now Bega, the company that recently acquired the beloved snack, announced a premium version will be available from supermarkets this week.
We never thought we would use Vegemite and premium in the same sentence.
With an updated recipe and fancy new packaging, Vegemite Blend 17 prides itself on being 'bolder and richer' than the original.
The official Vegemite Facebook page broke the news yesterday with a short video explaining that the new version would be available for a limited time and is proudly made in the Port of Melbourne.
The iconic red and yellow label has been ditched in favour of a shiny golden jar.
Only 450,000 jars of the new flavour will be available to the public.
It also looks like the fancy jar will set us back more, with most retailers charging $6.99 for a 150g jar – double the price of the standard version.
