Thanks to Glenda for letting us know when the Vegemite was back on the shelves.
Judging by the interest from members in getting their hands on a jar, or two, perhaps make a trip to Stonewall in the next little while. Of course, you can always phone the store first – (204) 467-5553 – to make sure they still have some in stock.
We are always on the lookout for – and often asked about – places that stock Vegemite, but other than Stonewall, there are no other places right now that we know of.
This has been an ongoing comment for many years, in both Canada and the US, and when I periodically check with both the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), I am told there is no problem bringing Vegemite into either country. Earlier this year, CFIA confirmed by email that the product has not in fact been pulled by them or anyone else.
In the meantime, get yourselves – or get someone on your behalf – to Stonewall and stock up while the jars are on the shelves.
In addition to the Down Under Parfait at Sub Zero Ice Cream, two other things to let you know about.
McDonald’s is offering an Aussie BBQ & Egg Burger from July 16 to July 29 as part of its world taste tour. Made with 100% Canadian beef topped with a fresh cracked egg, crispy beet chips, processed cheese, leaf lettuce and a smoky BBQ sauce on a brioche-style bun, it not only looks good, but you could also win a trip to Australia!
The only other place we know has Vegemite is Save On Foods – three locations in Winnipeg. NOTE: London Drugs no longer stocks it and isn’t planning to do so in the future.
If you spot Vegemite anywhere else, or hear of any other Aussie and Kiwi products or locations we should know about, do what Peter and Margaret Munn did and let us know.
Thanks to DUCW member Margaret Munn for letting us know about the delicious “Down Under” parfait – soft vanilla layered with Nutella, cappuccino crumble, Tim Tam biscuits, and chocolate hazelnut cream-filled wafer.
Get yours today in either a cone or a cup. DELICIOUS!!!
Available now at Sub Zero Ice Cream, 298 Jamison Ave, right here in Winnipeg.
When you get one, take a photo and we’ll post it on our Facebook page.
