Noahs Vegemite skull

August 31, 2012

As a general rule we love basking in the anonymity of the internet…

But this post is going to give us away.  Well not totally, but our location at least.

We LOVE Vegemite.  LOVE LOVE LOVE Vegemite.  In fact, in my house, Vegemite is not confined just to toast, I use is as a dip, on eggs, in cooking…. But never used it to paint with.  Trust Skull-A-Day creator Noah Scalin to have tried it!  See his original post here.

Now as you know we normally like to slip a bit of anatomy or such into our posts, but we can’t expect an artist to give us well defined craniofacial features when using Vegemite to paint with, so instead… we give you some Vegemite science!

Vegemite is produced from a by product of beer brewing yeast (sounds good already right!), vegetables, spices and salt.  Vegemite is one of the worlds best sources for B vitamins thiamine, folic acid, riboflavin and niacin and has been endorsed by the British Medical Association for this reason.  The B group vitamins (there are over 20 that we currently know of) are essential for all sorts of things our bodies do and have also been linked to positive mental health.  So if you want to be a happy little Vegemite get some!

Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it… and if you tried it and didn’t like it… you tried it wrong, try some more!


  1. Thanks for the feature! That was a fun piece to make, though I have to admit the taste has yet to grow on me…

    • I think the key to loving it may be your mother shoving it down your throat as an infant…. So if I ever get hold of the TARDIS Ill send it your way with a jar of vegemite inside!

  2. “Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it… and if you tried it and didn’t like it… you tried it wrong, try some more!” SO, SO RIGHT! It is not peanut butter. It is not jam. Sparing amounts on toast with lots of butter. I think I need my breakfast.
