What is a Tuck Shop? It is Aussie for a Canteen.

What is Vegemite? Good question. It definitely is quite unique in its taste, look and smell. It is something most Aussies grew up with, even from immigrant familes such as the one I came from. You had to have it spread on white toast or have it as a sandwich. Since moving to New York over 16 years ago, it is quite hard to find it here but a couple of places do sell it now. And when I do go back to Australia, I always bring back a couple of jars!
