Vegemite and Almond Butter: The Mashup You Never Knew You Needed (But Probably Do)

Posted by Nick Sheridan on

Here at 99th Monkey, we're all about exploring delicious flavours. We love creating nut butters that tantalise your taste buds. But today, we're diving headfirst into a pairing that might raise some eyebrows (and maybe cause a few noses to wrinkle): Vegemite and Almond Butter.

Yes, you read that right. We're suggesting you spread a layer of our creamy, dreamy Almond Butter alongside the iconic (and sometimes notorious) Vegemite. Now, before you click away in disgust, hear us out!

The Magic of Salty & Savoury:

Vegemite, Australia's beloved (or perhaps begrudgingly tolerated) breakfast spread, is famous for its intense umami flavour with a powerful salty punch. It's a love-it-or-hate-it kind of thing. But here's the secret: Almond Butter is the perfect counterpoint.

The rich nuttiness of Almond Butter adds a layer of smooth creaminess that mellows out the harshness of Vegemite. The sweetness of the almonds balances the Vegemite's salty bite, creating a surprisingly harmonious flavour profile. Think of it like a salty and savoury duet, where each element complements the other to create a more complex and satisfying experience.

Spreading the Vegemite Love (or at Least Tolerance):

We know, Vegemite isn't for everyone. Its strong flavour can be quite polarising. But if you're a die-hard Vegemite fan, this combination is a revelation. The Almond Butter tames the intensity of Vegemite, making it even more enjoyable. It's like discovering a hidden dimension to your favourite breakfast spread.

Beyond Vegemite Devotees:

Even if you're on the fence about Vegemite, we urge you to give this combo a try. Here's why: the Almond Butter acts as a bridge, softening the sharp edges of Vegemite and creating a more approachable flavour. It's like training wheels for the Vegemite-curious. You might just discover a new breakfast favourite!

The Versatility of This Unexpected Duo:

The beauty of this pairing lies in its versatility. Spread it on your morning toast or crumpets for a protein-packed breakfast. It works equally well on savoury biscuits or rice cakes for a satisfying afternoon snack. Feeling adventurous? Try it in a sandwich with sliced tomato and cheese for a surprisingly delicious lunch option.

Why It Might Not Be for You:

Let's be honest, some people just won't be on board with this flavour combination. And that's okay! We all have our taste preferences. But for those open to culinary exploration, this unexpected duo offers a unique and surprisingly delicious experience.

The Final Verdict:

Vegemite and Almond Butter might seem like an odd couple at first glance. But trust us, this combination is worth a try. The creamy nuttiness of the Almond Butter tames the intensity of Vegemite, creating a harmonious and flavourful spread. Whether you're a lifelong Vegemite lover or a curious newcomer, this unexpected pairing might just become your new breakfast (or snack) obsession. So, head over to your local store, grab a jar of 99th Monkey Almond Butter and your favourite Vegemite, and get ready to embark on a delightful taste adventure!
