you bastards, your ciggerette companys go any buy one of our favourite spreads - then years later you say you dont want it! GIVE IT BACK SCUM!

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.

haha i have never heard anyone say that crowded house are an australian band... but i hear everyday that they're a kiwi band like it's politically incorrect to assume they're from anywhere else... they are as good as an oz band... finn is the only kiwi in it!...

and to reiterate... vegemite is vile, vile shit...
