Vegemite vs. Marmite vs. Promite

А они всё спорят-спорят...что вкуснее??
Marmite или Vegemite??
Да это всё-равно, что спорить что вкуснее - кока-кола или пепси-кола!

Или: какой борщ вкуснее? Русский, украинский или беларуский???

Каждый англичанин знает, что ВСЁ изобрели - англичане.
А Aussie показали 'англичанцам' свой salute и свиснули рецепт английской Marmite и сделали себе [и назвали]  - Vegemite!

И правильно сделали!

Но есть и американский аналог английской Marmite = Promite.

Marmite: Originally from the UK and now in both the UK and New Zealand, Marmite is made from yeast extract, a by-product of beer brewing, and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Some say it tastes similar to beef bouillon. Marmite is the French term for a large, covered earthenware or metal cooking pot. Marmite used to be served in glass jars that resembled such jars.
Promite: Promite is made from vegetables and yeast extract. Originally an Australia brand, it was acquired by Mars Incorporated, an American company. Dispite it's U.S. ownership, Promite is still manufactured and sold in Australia. It appears that Promite is the underdog of the three brands.
Vegemite: Vegemite, an Australian treat manufactured by U.S. giant Kraft, is made from yeast extract, and various vegetable and spice additives. Many Australians consider a national food and cultural icon.
