An Acquired Taste
The morning after I arrived in Adelaide I went to the cafe for the breakfast brunch which was included with the cost of my room. I'd heard about this Vegemite, my middle son told me that I should try it so I made myself some toast and applied the Vegemite like I would peanut butter and I took a bite.
Immediately I scanned the restaurant to see if anyone would notice if I deposited the bite in my mouth into a napkin, the place was packed so I toughed it out and washed this nasty taste down with my tea. I was done with this piece of toast and learned a valuable lesson... never try anything without first asking the locals. I have since learned that this is to be applied sparingly, but it's too late now, the taste has left me never wanting to try it again! Vegemite is definitely an acquired taste.
