Much Australian food is similar to the foods found in Europe or the U.S. But some are distinctly Australian, including, notoriously, the yeast-extract spreads shown here. The most famous of these is Vegemite, bought by Kraft from its Australian creators. Other brands include the locally manufactured Mightymite and Promite (a sweeter version). Some Australians still hold out for Marmite, the British original. Hungry Planet: What the World Eats (p. 34).
