Breakfast

Today’s prompt was inspired by Pseu (http://pseu1.wordpress.com/) who mentioned Marmite last week.

Australians are known for eating Vegemite but this Aussie has been consuming a very similar product Promite since childhood(a couple of years ago!) Promite has a subtle sweetness…yum πŸ™‚

It’s breakfast time here…I’m going to make a cup of tea and some toast while I jot down some notes for a new story idea πŸ™‚

Comments on: "Breakfast" (8)

  1. I’m a vegemite girl. I remember mum buying Promite once, as a change, when I was a kid. I think I cried. She never bought it again.

    • I did the same when my Mum bought a different brand of toothpaste 😦
      My husband prefers Vegemite and two of my kids like Promite, the other two Vegemite. When I was an exchange student in New Zealand I missed Promite terribly and even tried spreading Bonox on toast to try and get the same taste but no luck 😦

  2. Help! What exactly is Promite? I am from Chicago and have no idea. Is it jelly or jam? I see that you eat it on toast. Looks interesting. πŸ™‚

    • Promite is similar to Vegemite and Marmite. Marmite is popular in Britain and NewZealand, Vegemite & Promite are both Australian. I don’t think they ever caught on in the USA. It is a paste made from vegetable & yeast extracts and high in vitamin B.Vegemite is just made fromYeast extract, Promite is a little sweeter and my preference. If you look at masterfoods.com.au under products it will tell you about it. When I was a teenagerI used to come home from school and have toast with butter,Promite and tasty cheese on top – it’s still a favourite πŸ™‚

      • Intersting! Forgive me, but it sounds like something my American taste buds would have to get use to. LOL! I will go and check out Masterfoods.com. Thanks πŸ™‚

  3. Great picture,I like to have a poached egg, on toast spread with vegemite ,promite is also ok ,Promite and Vegemite are yeast based products in the form of a very dark near black spread ,not very sweet but tasty,very Australian thing i think.

    • Promite & Vegemite were developed in Australia but their cousin Marmite is a favourite in Britain & New Zealand. Promite is actually vegetable-based with some yeast and a bit sweeter. Yes, I love Promite with eggs, tasty cheese, on dry biscuits/crackers, plain scones, English muffins, rice cakes or in sandwiches with lettuce – Yum πŸ™‚ Now I’m hungry 😦

  4. Thanks for the mention!
    Here is a jar of Marmite
