Today Mrs. Yollis' class got a chance to taste Vegemite! This Australian favorite was a gift from their quad-blogging buddy, Jarrod!
Jarrod sent the class a wonderful gift package filled with candies (lollies), an Australian souvenir, and a tube of Vegemite.
Jarrod is a member of the fabulous 2KM and 2KJ class. This tremendous group of bloggers lives in Victoria, Australia. He has earned his own blog!
First, the Vegemite was spread on crackers. Jarrod recommended starting with a thin layer of Vegemite.
Next, the class raised their Vegemite in a toast to the Aussies!
"Raise your hand if you like it and would try it again!" asked Mrs. Yollis.
Thank you, Jarrod, for your thoughtful gift! We will never forget you!
Jarrod is a terrific blogger who always comments back to his readers. Here is a screen shot of some comments he wrote to the class:
What did you think of the Vegemite?
What is a typical American food that the Australians might not know?
What are some other foods that you've tried from another country?
