I regretfully inform all Lausannoise Australians that Globus Lausanne does not stock Vegemite. I shall look in Geneva on Friday.

You wont find it in the Geneva one either (only Marmite). I can confirm however that Carrefour in Segny have a good stock (I was there on Saturday), you'll find it in the world foods aisle, near the taco kits, asian sauces etc.

Re: Australian food - Vegemite! Anywhere offline?

Marmite, ughhh, a vile concoction, the poor unwanted cousin of vegemite, best left on the shelf with its equally despised half brother promite.

Re: Australian food - Vegemite! Anywhere offline?

There is a shop in Eaux Vives that has vegimite and other stuff. If it is vegimite you need either can send you some or head down to a shop called Ashanti on Rue de Nantes Geneva. Good luck... also there is bacon and loads of english stuff, walkers crisps, breakfast, beans and not too expensive at all.

Re: Australian food - Vegemite! Anywhere offline?

The other posters are right about Globus... they have a nice selection of imported things... I was very surprised to find things there which I never found in Germany. Mmmm canned pumpkin, different kinds of molasses, baking ingredients, etc. They also have a nice selection of international foods: mexican, asian, american, etc.

Re: Happy little Vegemite?

No idea where you can get Vegimite. But have you tried the Swiss version 'CENOVIS'?

Apparently new research seems to indicate that Vitamin B, which is plentiful in marmite, vegi and Cenovis - can play an important role in keeping Alzheimers at bay - so will be buying some.

Oh No.

Please understand I'm not knocking your post Odile, but rather protecting a 'hausfrau' from a potentially furious husband when he doesn't see that little red and yellow jar.

Cenovis, although similar in taste and texture, is no replacement for a true Vegemite lover.

There is only a marginal difference in flavour between Marmite and Vegemite, and this tears peoples worlds apart.... imagine what Cenovis will do?

Good point! It could cause the universe to implode if I put a slightly altered version in front of him and use any reference or similarity.

The man went through a 2.5k tub of the good stuff in 6 months..

Re: Happy little Vegemite?

I picked up some vegemite at the british shop van at Ouchy summer markets on a Sunday a couple of weeks ago (just outside the Chateau d'Ouchy) along with some Cadbury chocolate that just didn't taste the way I remembered

I was very confused but then relieved to discover that the recipe is different in England

On a side note does anyone know where I could buy my husband some pizza shapes? I'd fall into 'best wife on earth' category if I found him some

Whilst I agree that There Can Be Only One, (even though some sad tupperware junkies really have no idea) there is an old German saying that goes:

In desperation the devil will even eat flies!

I'll at least give it a go, in the droughts between food packages from the Mainland.

Re: Happy little Vegemite?

ack.. well, that's not going to be any help at all! You can order them from back home - greataussiefood.com.au but what condition they will be in when arriving is questionable. However, if he's keen then he might not mind a box of pizza shape crumbs?

Considering my MSG monkey/ husband has to restrain himself from licking the flavouring off the inside of the packet I'm sure he'll have no problem eating crumbs
