Souvenir Sunday: vegemite from Sydney Airport

It’s Souvenir Sunday – a day to take a look at the fun, inexpensive and locally-themed items you can find when you’re stuck at the airport.

This week’s pick comes to us from world-traveler Jon Douglas, who found a bin of vegemite for sale at Australia’s Sydney Airport.

What’s vegemite?

According to the Urban Dictionary: It’s a “delicious Australian spread, made from used brewer’s yeast. Non-Australians tend to give descriptions of it similar to ‘tastes like a mixture of salt and battery acid’.”

On the road a lot? If you find yourself stuck at the airport, take some time to check ou the shops. If you find a great souvenir that’s fun, inexpensive and ‘of’ the city or region, please snap a photo and send it along.

If your souvenir is featured on, I’ll send you a special travel-related souvenir.
