Vegemite just dropped a new gourmet version of the iconic Australian spread, boasting a richer, thicker formula for serious connoisseurs.
Only here for a limited time, the fancy gold jar will set you back twice as much as the original formula, retailing at $6.99.
Blend 17 originated in 1923 when Vegemite inventor Cyril Callister came up with the spread, he tried and tested several different blends to find the perfect balance for the Vegemite we all know and love.
“Blend 17 takes some of these earlier recipes to bring this richer, bolder taste and the naming is simply in recognition of the year we have been able to bring this to Australians,” a release said.
Australia has taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the new Blend 17, expressing some confusion over the fancy new product. While some said they can't taste the difference, others swear it has a more sophisticated flavour.
