    There's no accounting for taste

    Article from:


    THE US has banned Vegemite, even to the point of searching Australians for jars of the spread when they enter the country.
    The bizarre crackdown was prompted because Vegemite has been deemed illegal under US food laws.

    The great Aussie icon - faithfully carried around the world by travellers from downunder - contains folate, which under a technicality, America allows to be added only to breads and cereals.
    Australian expatriates in the US said enforcement of the ban had been gradually stepped up and was now ruining lifelong traditions of Vegemite on toast for breakfast.

    Kraft spokeswoman Joanna Scott said: "The (US) Food and Drug Administration doesn't allow the import of Vegemite simply because the recipe does have the addition of folic acid.''

    The US was "a minor market'' for Vegemite, she said.



    Happy ... Americans will never know the pleasure of Vegemite on a fresh piece of bread because the savoury spread has been banned in the US. / News Limited picture

    Australia will retaliate by banning all yank foods, or as we call them 'weapons of mass obesity'. Someone in the FDA clearly isn't getting enough vitamin B.

    From the look of that picture, I don't think I am missing out on anything.
    Fun fact for the day:"Americans on average eat 18 acres of pizza every day. "
